    Hello

    My LG monitor is having a problem that has only started yesterday. After turning on my computer is works fine for about 15 minutes then goes black with no indication of it going to sleep mode or anything. I know that it is still receiving power because it has the power indicator light on. Also, when I unplug the screen from the computer and plug it back in it works fine for 15 minutes then goes completely black again.

    Now last week my computer got a very bad virus and was taken in and it was removed. I got it back yesterday and this new monitor problem has started... I suspected there may be a problem with the computer itself causing this malfunction, so I plugged the screen into another computer to see what would happen and it is the same story.

    Thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated!

    When a modern LCD monitor breaks does it just go black or does it flicker?

    Modern monitors just like old ones don't follow any set pattern when they fail.

    If its a decent brand it will have a 3 year warranty.
