Hi, I have a problem, my monitor keeps going blank after working for aprox 10 min. The green light is on and the computer is working, it's just not displaying anything.
If I turn the monitor off or disconnect the cable (while the comp is on) and then reconnect or turn it back on it works for another 3-4 min and then goes blank again. I've checked the monitor on my other computer and it's working fine.
Has anyone encountered such a problem before? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Sounds like a video card (unless it's onboard video) issue, could be overheating. Try to get a temperature monitor during that 10 minutes that you have (e.g. Speedfan). Or, it could be a faulty video card.
try hooking monitor to the other PC.
This will help you to see if your monitor is misbehaving from some other hardware/OS in you PC.
If vice verso, try cleaning up all contacts on Motherboard with 100% alcohol and cotton sticks or use old tooth brush for AGP/PCI Express slots, and leave it to dry out for half hour or full hour.
Notice only to disconnect power cord before you perform this action!!!
