    Is it a LCD monitor, Ive had old monitors do that to me when the capacitors are going out. If you can shine a flashlight on the screen and see if you can see the screen. You have tried another monitor right? I dont really understand your response above.
  4. Check your cord is plugged in correctly- When mine is pushed in to far or not enough the back of the monitor I have that issue.
