LCD Monitor Failure?
Posted on 2005-04-15
I have a flatron lcd 563le monitor. As i was reinstalling winxp pro, during the 1st 10 mins the monitor switches off and on in a second around a acouple of times. I assume its loading or testing display drivers and have experienced this before on numerous xp installations on same monitor with no problems. Astonishingly when the 1st time the monitor flicked off and on the screen resulted in displaying so many colours like if a laptop monitor cracks. Then it switched off again and a second later i had a white blank screen. The third time the monitor flicked off and on, the moitor returned back to normal but winxp installation crashed. So i restarted pc and the 1st time the monitor flicked off and on the white screen returned, also winxp installion crashed at that point again. Now whenever i use the monitor i cant get rid of the white screen, like if monitor has stopped responding, also cannot access monitor functions too. I tried connecting monitor to laptop but again the white screen does not go away.
Now i am using a 19inch crt monitor and it looks like a battleship compared to lcd monitor.
Any suggestions or has my lcd screen packed up due to winxp installation.
