    Problem with monitor.

    When I turn off my computer, and when I try to turn it back on like the next day, the monitor would attempt to turn on but fail. And flash attempts repeatedly. But somehow, when I take the blue cable connecting the monitor to the CPU and leave my monitor there for at least half an hour to an hour and thirty minutes, it restores image and allows me to work on it again. This has been very irritating. I've tried leaving the computer on for the whole night, somehow it just finds a way to log off or go on standby. I have turned off the computer without the power cable connected to the monitor. I have always tried turning off the monitor when I'm not using to save power. None of those work. I suppose it is a problem with my back light somehow.

    Please help. I'm sorry I cannot provide images, I suppose my description should be vivid enough for you to carry out this request.

    Re: Problem with monitor.

    Make sure the cable connecting your monitor to your PC is plugged in both ends correctly. Make sure none of the pins are bent or broken off. Try buying a new cable.

    If these all fail, I think you'll need a new monitor.

    Re: Problem with monitor.

    Yeah thanks. I swear, EVERYTHING was connected correctly. I also did not see any bent or broken parts with the cables. I was about to open my monitor manually but I was too scared to break it knowing that it works sometimes.

    If you're too scared to open up the monitor and figure out the problem the hard way, then I think you should think about getting a new one.

    Alright thanks. I'll take it into huge consideration. Any suggestions for a new monitor?

    Good quality, low price considering average prices for that size.

    If you're looking for a little cheaper:

    And if you want something even cheaper, go to the dump and ask for one of their beige monitors. It'll probably be a massive, heavy CRT, but it would be free.
