Hi All ,

My monitor's screen  goes off suddenly very often. It just truns off though monitor switch is on
also sometime it comes back automatically after 1 or 2 mins sometime it takes very long and
few times i had to restart the pc also while restarting sometime it doesn display anything if i restart it after waiting for 5 mins then the screen comes.

I also tried to reduce the resolution from Display settings but it doesnt work

Could be the monitor or the video adapter is flakey. Test this monitor on another machine or test with another monitor on this machine.

Could be that the video drivers need to be refreshed. Open the Device Manager and delete out the ATI 3D Rage Pro

Greetings, perlmn!

Check if the video card driver is corrupt. Delete the driver in Device Manager and let Windows reinstall it. Have your video driver disk handy.

Check for loose cables in the back.  Look at the power cable and the video cable. Make sure they are firmly in place.


Best wishes, war1

I think your screen is on it's last legs (or stand). Does the Monitor last very long before it powers down?
