white flashing monitor

  lisa02 23:48 15 Jan 2005

We bought a custom made pc the week before christmas and have noticed that the monitor (tft) flashes white when its turned on. it doesn't go onto the computer startup screen. It needs to be turned off and on again before you see any computer startup/desktop

any advice

Test all the cables and try another monitor, if you don't get the same result then you have two options. 1) you could try and get the latest drivers for your monitor and graphics card, but if this doesn't help then you can get the monitor replaced under the warranty....TT

I couldn't find an update for the monitor drivers (plug and play bit). Updated the drivers, several times for the graphics card. It's an nvidia 128mb 5700le. Problem went away for a while but then came back. I find if I turn the monitor on first it does not happen so much.

Thanks for your input.

Sounds like a faulty monitor. Get it seen to now, while it is still under warranty or you will regret that, when it packs up. There should be no reason you should have to put up with anything that is less than perfect....TT
