Having problems with your HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?

Same problem screen goes dark.

\015 Dell E310 PC Specs P4 2.8GHz 80GB of stortage and 512MB of RAM and a GEforce Nvidia FX 5200 graphics card. The problem is that the screen goes really really dark, even though the power is on (green button still green) but I can get the image to return if I switch the monitor on and off... The problem first started when I took my PC to go get repaired and when I got it back after about a week this started happening. I used to get around the screen going off by turning it on and off for about 30 mins and eventually the screen would stay on... but this no longer happens. The problem occurs even if a new monitor is used, the repair guy claimed to have fixed it after he altered the resolution but this proved to be a temporary fix. I never mess around with resolution so I don't quite understand how this could be the problem. Problems I have identified that could be the cause are the Driver being out of date or corrupted, Solder melted so the screen is not connected properly, something to do with the RAM, wrong power settings (voltage etc) and possibly something to do with the resolution (although I doubt it) I have tryed changing the resolution and booting in VGA mode, reinstalling the driver, updating the driver and scanning my computer. I'm pretty sure the problem has something to do with voltage.\015

\015\012Well I would have thought this to be a classic failing monitor until you said even a new monitor does the same thing. This being the case it can only be the video card or drivers for the card. Resolution is easy to change and could cause the problem if the resolution selected cannot be displayed by the monitor. At the main windows screen right click the mouse and select properties. Now click the settings tab and the resolution is on the left side. Your display should also be listed.
