Lately I've been having serious problems with my monitor. Here's the run down....

When I turn on the computer and login, everything is smooth. Except as soon as my desktop loads the monitor starts to turn off and on and off and on continuously..... the LED also goes on(green) and off (orange).........

At this stage the monitor power button is completely useless. Doesn’t matter how hard I press it, the LCD screen just keeps turning on and off.....

I've found that if I open windows explorer the flashing stops. I have to keep it open though cause as soon as I close it the monitor goes berserk again. :mad: :mad: :mad:

This started about a year ago but only on very rare occasions and back then I would just restart the computer. So I didn't think very much of it. Now, the problem occurs every time I turn on the computer and restarting makes no difference.

None of my mates can explain it so any help will be appreciated.

The good news is that the price of a new one will be less than you paid for that one.....and not to mention, a BIGGER one to boot.
