Hi all,

I have a Relisys 17" monitor that i`ve had for about 4 years now. I turned it on last night and no power led came on and no picture came up. So I left it for a few hours then when I turned it on later no picture came up but the LED on the front was flashing green, when usually its solid Amber for stand-by and solid Green for power on.

Any ideas whether its my monitor here thats the issue or whether my Graphics card is shafted (which is only 2 months old!)

Thanks for the help.

The flashing probably means "no signal", try reconnecting the signal cable to the video card.

Tried another monitor on my card and its getting a signal fine, so think my monitor is dead.
