Hi all.

I have a Relisys monitor which is playing up. I am running XP and recently the monitor loses it's picture. Just a black screen. The green light is on, but no picture... If I swith the PC off and turn off at the mains and leave it for an hour or two, it comes back on, only for it to go off again in 1 maybe 2 maybe 5 hours.... then it goes again. I have downloaded new drivers for my graphics card but it doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Two things spring to mind

1. Graphics card overheating and shutting down - have you checked it has good airflow and /or fan id spinning properly with no fluff or other debris obstructing airflow.

2. The monitor is knackered. Have you tried another to see if the same occurs?

Tried another monitor, same response. I haven't cleaned out the back of the PC yet though. Also I have had the whole place decorated and the dust has been unbelievable.... I wonder if that could be the cause?

Looks like a spring clean of the pc is due!

Thanks for the tip bremner

Try removing and reseating the CARD
