Hi, i have had this reoccurring problem for a while now and its beginning to get irritating. I will be on my pc when the monitor will randomly stop displaying the pc GUI, it will go to the blank (no source detected screen).It cannot be a faulty monitor as the pc fans still spinning and the lights are still on. I know the problem lies within the PC as when i power it off then back on, all returns to normal and the display comes back on. Please assist me in fixing this problm

  1. check graphics cable is not loose at rear of monitor or pc

  2. remove - clean graphics care and refit - retry

  3. if still same try a new cable

I had a similar problem with my monitor about a year ago. After testing all the various components (graphics card, cable, connections). I came to the conclusion that it could be a dry joint in the monitor over the years breaking down due to heat. Ended up replacing monitor after testing with a borrowed monitor resolved the problem.
