Monitor fault

Hey room

Have turned on the PC and found that the monitor is no longer working. Symptoms are :-

On PC start up , as the graphics card brings the monitor out of standby a clicking sound is normally heard but only once. Now its all the time and the screen fails to light up at all. Removing the power source stops the noise and it slows down (i assume the power capacitors in a switch on the back are drained when the power is removed, hence the slow down in sound).

Anyone had experience of this at all? The monitor is a GNR VL997 Super.

does the monitor run from its own power supply, or is it running from the PC's power supply?

own power supply from the plug socket, the pc itself fires up all the way to a log on screen when tried with a diff monitor.

so its definately the monitor anyway. how old is it. could just be on one those things if its quite old.

think its about 2 yrs old, will look for the warranty on the product anyway and found out the information needed to swap it over.

have you tried the monitor on another comp as well? can't imagine it'll make any difference, but you never know with these fickle things...
if not, it looks like you may to get it serviced

will try all the combinations after my dinner... food first, work later :D

Thanks for the advice so far, most appreciative. Any others for any ideas?

it may also be the graphics card at fault. the only way to be sure is as above to swap monitors, try reseating the graphics card and swap the graphics card if that doesnt work to test it.

try everything on another system aswell.

Check the plug pins as well if you have been swappimg it around

Being only two years old, its a possible swap-out job. But if not, and you fancy a long read, then click here
