Weird Monitor problem
Posted on 1997-02-19
My cousin is having a weird problem with his monitor.
He has a 13" monitor and he has a Windows 95 system. Whenever
he turns on his computer it boots up and the monitor automatically
shuts off when it's about to show the Windows 95 screen.
We connected the monitor to a different unit running Windows 3.1
and it booted up perfectly fine (That eliminates the problem
with the monitor). However, when we tried to connect the
unit with Win95 to the other monitor, the screen appears to
be moving sideways very fast. I tried it with another
monitor and I got the same result. Those monitor are about
a year older than the monitor that came with it. I brought
the computer home since I have a new computer and 17" screen.
I connected the unit to my 17" monitor and it booted up perfectly fine
which means there's nothing wrong with the unit either.
Why is it that when I connected the unit unto slightly old monitor
I get a screen that moves sideways so fast?
Most importantly, why was the original monitor that came
with it shutts off after booting up? What's causing it?
