    hello there

    i recently purchased a secondhand monitor, a Delium VW19B 19 inch flatscreen, which appears to be in very good condition and was supposed to be functioning like new. i've plugged it into my pc and my laptop but the same thing happens. it turns on briefly when i boot up, but then flickers on for a second or two before going out again. i can see a picture on the screen but the backlight only works briefly if i turn it off and turn it on again.

    i have googled and googled but i just can't find any drivers for it as i remember my dad saying he had trouble with his monitor before he installed some drivers for it. that aside, is my monitor just broken or could the cables be faulty?

    any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    thanks

    [edit]

    i tinkered with it a little and it's making some rather interesting crackling noises.

    Occasionally a screen will make a crackling noise if the power lead isn't plugged in correctly or the Socket for the power on the back of the screen is faulty. If it isn't that then I would presume something isn't right on the inside and to be honest I wouldn't have thought it safe to keep using it in that condition.

    I bought one of these monitors just over a year ago. Yesterday it went black for no aparent reason. Switching off and on again brought it back for a few seconds each time. A spare monitor works perfectly on the desktop. The screen flickered and became a bit brighter before going black. Is there a cure?
