I have a dim monitor after 10 minutes - IBM PC Desktops


Answers :

Backligt bulb or power supply is going out. Hit it on the side a few times and see if it brightens up. If yes, then it is a short or loose connection. If no, then get another monitor. It's cheaper then getting this one fixed. Ask your local computer store the price for repairing it, worst case.
