LCD shuts off in the middle of use randomly on a PC. Bad LCD or Bad Video card ?

To get it back I unplug / replug the LCD and it returns straight away.
Note the PC is up and running during all this.

Hi worded,

A couple of things to try...if you have another video card...replace that with the one that's in your computer...if the problem continues...it's possible that the LCD is bad...something else to try is connecting your LCD to another computer...if if happens again...most likely it's a bad LCD...do you have another monitor or LCD...if so...try that and see if the problem continues...
yep.... hard to work out without the process of elimination.

Swapping the monitor over to test is your easiest way to diagonse the prob.

Another thing to check...make sure that the power cord isn't loose that connects your LCD...

I had no spare LCD or video card with me to check.
Will meed about two weeks on this one before I go back on site there agian.
test the monitor on another PC - as said
If all you do is unplug the LCD monitor and plug it back in, I think it's the monitor - a bad video card would not likely come back up just because the monitor got reset.  This sounds like a power problem in the monitor.
