Monitor turns black when switching resolution.

Hello guys :). I have had a problem with my monitor for a while now and i decided to ask here. My monitor is 1440x900 and i had it for 2 years. It's a Hanns-G HW191A. Problem is when i change resolution to something like 1280x960 or lower after changing it will turn black and i have to turn it off from the button on the side many times until it can run without turning black. I mean it stays on for 1-3 sec and then black,then i have to redo it until it works(or change back to 1440x900 and also try many times). Does anyone have a clue of what i should do or there's no way? Thank you :)

  1. Keep your resolution at 1440x900p. It's because your monitor cannot handle anything greater then that resolution.
  2. Always run your monitor at native resolution. If this was an old crt type monitor you
    would have fried it by now.
  3. 960 >900 so that may be the problem.
    In general don't exceed its listed resolution and try to keep it at native if possible.

    That's what I do but it automatically switches.
    EDIT:Forgot to say that it happens on games. I use hd4000
  5. Okay. What you need to do for games is select your native resolution in your graphics settings. And click "apply."
  6. Lemme restate the problem. For example i press the monitor button to turn off,i then click it again and it opens for 2 seconds. Then it like shuts down and turns black but the green light is still on in the monitor so i will have to close it and open it multiple times to get it to work.

    Hm. Sounds to me like your cord on the back is the problem. Try wiggling it around.
