Actually, this is a question that I have to create an analysis for, either real or imagined. I have tried googling the question, but to no avail. I thought by posting on this site that I would get an answer, but I should have rephrased the question or went into more detail. OK...here goes my scenario... I purchase a new computer and after three months my monitor starts to freeze and will not restart unless I unplug the machine. I am supposed to give an analysis for this scenario involving support software that may be needed, required hardware, cost of support, skills required, and steps for implementing technology.

uh...test the monitor in a different surge protector..or swap the power cable and try a new vga/dvi cable...test a different monitor into another computer to see if it's the video card screwing up..etc...

Is this for a class or something? Seems strange to throw a totally random scenario and then try to problem solve it, because stuff like that doesn't happen lol.

Anyway, just to be helpful, this is what I'd do.

1) Check graphic card drivers, update if outdated
2) Test monitor on another system (if works, monitor is not the problem)
3) Test graphics card on another system (if works, graphics card is not the problem)

If monitor doesn't work on another system:

1) Test a new DVI cable (if works, problem was the dvi cable)
2) Test a new power cable (if works, problem was power cable)

If graphics card doesn't work on another system:

1) Replace graphics card and test

If monitor still not working:

1) Send monitor to repair or replace, not much more you can do.
