I have a gnr plug and play monitor which has been fine up until yesterday when there was nothing on the screen. Flicking the power switch off and then on brought it back for about two seconds.
It keeps doing it and then stops. I was advised to remove the driver which I did and then it returned, later of course I discovered that there shouldn't be a driver because it's plug and play but it continues to sit there quite happily.
So I thought I'd better get my question in before it goes again.
If you wiggle the poer cable where it plugs into the monitor, and it goes on and off - then either the plug needs pushing in more firmly, or the cable if faulty, or ...
...possibly there is a break in the soldering inside the monitor where the socket for the mains is soldered in. This happened to mine (due to frequent plugging/unplugging) - it's simple for a tech to fix.
Thanks DieSse, I rarely unplug the monitor so I don't think it's that. I have noticed that when the computer is off and I then switch off the mains that there is a slight blip on the start button, less than a second. There could be a link to the problem.
Anyway the computer's been on and off three times today and the monitor's behaving perfectly.Fingers crossed.
Thanks all for your help.
