Hi guys, since yesterday I'm having a weird problem with my monitor.
The screen starts flickering randomly, and sometimes it goes grey, almost like i turned down the brightness by 50%
I didn't know if it was the monitor, gpu, cables or something else so I reinstalled my gpu drivers, checked the cables and I still had the problem. By this point I was pretty sure it was the monitor (which is LG W2253TQ) and then when the flickering started again I heard a weird noise coming from the monitor. It was almost like something was cracking inside but a bit more silent. It was still noticeable enough.
So is the monitor done? I was planning on buying a new IPS monitor (Probably dell u2312hm) soon, and fixing this one isn't really worth it because the image quality has really gone from bad to worse over these 3 years since I bought it.
When the monitor is in sleep mode or when it's turned off it doesn't produce that noise. And the thing is it isn't flickering all the time, it just randomly starts doing it after an hour or so.
