Solved: Can't install monitor drivers for AOC flat screen monitor

Q: Solved: Can't install monitor drivers for AOC flat screen monitor

Im doing this for my Dad, so i have absolutely no idea how to describe the problem but i figured this place was my best shot as google is giving me no results on my query.
There appears to be no monitor drivers installed on the pc... and its running from the bare minimum settings. I think the refresh rate is set at a low low low setting, because lets say, if i move a window by dragging it across the screen, its all choppy, doesnt move smoothly at all... sort of like it jumps every half a second until i stop moving my mouse, then stops. The same with when i'm scrolling in internet explorer... smooth scrolling doesnt exsist! lol

I figured it was a driver problem seeing as there wasnt one installed. So i found the disk with the drivers on, and followed the instructions, which were as follows:
"Right Click" the mouse anywhere on the "BLANK" area on the desktop and click on PROPERTIES.
Click the SETTINGS tab and then click ADVANCED.
Click the MONITOR tab and then click PROPERTIES.
Under MONITOR PROPERTIES, click DRIVER then click UPDATE DRIVER.
On the HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD, select Install from a list of specific location (ADVANCED) then click Next.
On the next HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD window, select DON’T SEARCH, I WILL CHOOSE THE DRIVER TO INSTALL. Then click NEXT.
On the following window, click on HAVE DISK.
Type “D:\ENGLISH\DRIVERS” (Where “D” is the drive letter of your CD ROM Drive) on INSTALL FROM DISK window then click on OK.
Highlight the model of your monitor on the following list under HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD then click NEXT
.
Note: If Windows prompts you that the driver is not signed, click CONTINUE ANYWAY.
On the last window of HARDWARE UPDATE WIZARD click FINISH to complete the installation.
After the monitor driver installation has been done, restart the computer to update the windows setup for driver installation.


I got as far as "Display > Monitors" Then i couldnt get any further because there wasnt any properties button to select...

Can anyone tell me where im going wrong?
Sorry for the long post!

A: Solved: Can't install monitor drivers for AOC flat screen monitor

Additional monitor drivers are usual not needed. What do you have for a video adapter and are those drivers installed? Right click on My Computer choose Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. What information is listed under Video Adapters?
Also what are your screen resolution and refresh settings?

Hello all,
I have a Phillips 32" LCD (model # 32TA2800/98) that I connect my laptops to with a VGA cable. I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

It appears this one has got them all stumped. I really need help with this one and I am at a total loss. I would be forever in someones debt.

Could it be that the TV has a capacitor that holds the settings for an extended period of time? Maybe I should leave it unplugged for 24-48 hours?

My husband and I started with identical computer systems just over a year ago. Now his flat-screen monitor has gone wonky. Unless someone has a suggestion for getting it to work again, we may be out the cost of replacing it.

He has a Compaq Presario S6000V computer with a Compaq FP 5315 15" flat-screen monitor. Almost a month ago (now he tells me) it started rolling the picture like an old TV without vertical lock. Nothing but vertical streaks. He finally got it to quit, but has no idea what he did because he tried everything he could think of at the time. Yesterday it started again (warranty ran out March 21, of course), and now there is NO picture at all on the monitor. Just black screen. The little green light at the bottom by the big button (that doesn't work now) flashes on briefly every 4-5 seconds. He took a *screen shot* and it printed what should be showing on the screen, so we know it isn't the computer. Is there anything he can do besides replace it?

If I turn it off and back on, it'll display the Windows Desktop for about one sec and then it goes blank. Also, the monitor power light stays lit, so I know I'm not losing power to it. I attached another monitor to the PC, so it's definitely got a problem.

I am having some issues with my used flat screen monitor that I recently got. I plugged it in and turn on my P3 Desktop. The desktop is too big for the screen and the color is all wacky. I right clicked on the desktop and got to the 'properties' I then went to the tab with the monitor settings. It will not let me change the dimensions it stays on 800 X 600 and it won't let me change it to anything else. Also the color options is not like the regular 256 or thousand or million colors it is something completely different.

Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I have actually 2 monitors that do the same thing.

Not even sure if anyone can help with this, and more than likely my flat screen monitor is a goner. What happened is it just simply stopped working. No power surge, no falling off my desk. Just kaput. The only thing that happens is that by the button, the green light that turns on when the monitor is on, flashes in 7 second incriments, which tells me its getting power. There is no power adapter, just a regular cable, the exact same as what plugs into a computer tower. So is there some kind of trick I'm missing to get it working again?

I have just purchased a new 17" flat screen monitor from PC world today. Not a make I recognise but they have sold several £309 not cheapest, not most expensive. Chameleon-I on the box.
When I have set it up, there are 3 lit spots on the monitor, one white one just above centre - not quite eye level and two a white and a pink about 1" below the top of the screen.
Question: Is this acceptable - I assume these are lit or dead pixels but should I contact PC world and demand/request an exchange. Would another one be any better.
Probably as I go along I would get used to them being there but I would like your advise and to whether it is acceptable.
Thank you.

I would certainly call to see if an exchange is possible. It really depends on the retailer and the manufacturer. They all seem to have different policies regarding dead pixels on new monitors.

Hi,

I've got a Dell 15" flat screen monitor that I purchased in 2003 with an intermittent white screen problem that has now become a permanent condition. I am using my laptop to post this thread because I can't use my PC now. Every time now that I turn on the PC, the screen is white and I have to press and hold the start button to shut it down.

I have read other threads on this forum for this same problem and it seems it could be either the monitor or possibly a graphics card. The PC ran perfectly during the times the monitor was working in between white screen episodes. Suggestions were to try to hook up the monitor to another system which I don't have or connect another monitor to my computer, which I also don't have.

What are the chances that it is simply the monitor? I'd hate to purchase a new monitor when the problem lies elsewhere, like the PC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Gateway 17" Flat Screen Monitor that I bought just over a year ago, so the warranty isn't any good anymore. It just stopped working, but it's not like any monitor failure I've ever seen before -- the screen went completely white, with the exception of a couple of horizontal bands of dark colors (blue) that are just one or two pixels high.

At first I though my video card may have failed, but I hooked up another flat screen monitor that I borrowed from work (used the same cables as the other monitor, so it's not the cables) and it works fine.

Any ideas what may have failed and whether it is economically repairable?

Thanks

I'd guess you're out of luck. The LCD appears to have had a catastrophic failure. It could be the control circuitry, but either would be more than the current price of a 17" LCD to repair.

Have been using a VUESCAPE flat screen monitor about two years with no problems.
This week the monitor went black.
If I turn it off, then back on I get a clear & crisp picture of my desktop. This only lasts less than two seconds and the screen goes black again. I have repeated this cycle many times to no avail, problem persists.
I have tried the following;
replaced power cord --- same results.
replaced the vga cable --- same results.
connected a different monitor --- works with no problems.

Is there somthing missing that I can do ?

If I open the case on the monitor what should I look for ?

Unit is out of warranty so I did not get much tech support.

When I bought my refurb HP running Windows XP Home, I thought I could use the monitor from my old system (Dell Dimension XPST running Windows 98se). The old monitor is an analog flat-panel and it has two cables coming out of the back. One connection fits into the CPU's video port. I'm nor sure where the other cable and connector goes. It doesn't fit into any port on the CPU. It has a group of pins on the left and a group of pins on the right of the connector if you turn it over and look inside the connector. However, on boot-up, I get a message that the computer doesn't recognize the monitor, but if I turn off the monitor and turn it on again, it will display my desktop, but not the systray icons. Do I need a special driver for the monitor? What else could be the problem? Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

this morning i was on my desktop working fine before we had a power cut in our flat which shut off all the eletric socket points. My pc was switched off immediately.

I managed to switch on the main power suppy in our flat. then electricity was back on again. switched on the pc, running okay, i could even hear the windows starting up from my speaker. but my monitor (Dell 1800 FP, 19 inch flat screen, 5 years old) went completly black out. tried to switch on the indicator light, it wouldn't turn on (normally it's green when on). tried other buttons (brightness etc), still no light. It's as if it's been switched off.

spoken to a few friends who suggested me to see whether the fuse's been blown. tested fuse on a reader, absolutely fine. tested the power cable on other applicance and it's working fine.

Also tried to disconnect monitor from pc leaving only the power cable connected to monitor, still the same - does this mean that it's not the power suppy, but the monitor itself? Is the problem repairable?

I'm aware that during the last couple of weeks the monitor screen blinked once in a while (say twice during the day, just randomly but very subtle)....

help..
 

A:flat screen monitor black out! HELP

The LCD monitor itself has a power supply (or 2) built in to handle the lighting of the screen. Sometimes the power supply and/or fuses are fine, but the capacitors are blown or leaking.

Hello, I just got this monstrosity of a monitor..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116075
When set to reccomended resolution of 1680x1050, the stuff on the screen is really small. Things like the browser window fills the whole screen, but the web page only takes up a small portion and leaves the rest blank. Is there a way to adjust the content onscreen so that it uses the whole screen? Ive had to lower the resolution to 1024x768. So that the wife is happy with the way it looks.
Also does someone know a thing or two about the hows and whys of resolutions. Or a site where I can learn about them. So that when someone asks me what they do I dont respond " it makes stuff on the screen smaller!"
 

A:Flat screen monitor resolution questions

Resolution size shouldnt be viewed like TV size where the screen is bigger and so the image is bigger. The best way to put it is like a house (web page) to a plot of land (your monitor), if your land grows (resolution increases), the house remains the same size, so if your resolution gets higher, the website size doesnt change but its viewable space has increased so you have a bunch of dead space now dont you?

Most websites are built with a 800-1100 px width to accomodate the most common resolutions (800 x 600 & 1024x768) and not make them to wide. When your monitor is set at 1680 for the width, you have about 800 to 600 pixels left on the screen as filler space. By getting a larger monitor but keeping your same 1024x768 resolution, you really just increased the size of what you were viewing. Increasing the resolution gives you more viewable space to accomodate multiple windows more multi-tasking, etc... Higher resolutions do make things smaller because you are making more space for your desktop both horizontal and vertically. If you put your resolution at 800 x 600, you'd have to scroll left or right on most of the pages you visited.

Widescreen lcd's like this one are sold more for video or gaming uses. Playing a DVD at the optimal size for the monitor will look a lot better than at the 1024x768 setting. If you simply want to browse the web then you can just leave your settings at whatever you feel comfortable viewing.

I just bought a second hand Philips 170C flatscreen monitor off eBay.

My previous 15" NEC MultiSync LCD 1560NX works fine. So no issues with graphics card or pc.

I have tried both the proper display driver and the default plug and play - no difference to the problem.

Problem - When I put up a white screen there is a pink cast over the screen which is more evident towards the edges and stronger at the top left.

This particularly effects light greys on the screen, but all clours seen affected.

I've played around with the colours but because the problem is not even over the screen - I can't fix it.

Could this be down to a backlighting fault?

Any help from you tech wizards would be very much appreciated.

The backlight is simply a white flourecent bulb, and won't cause color missplacement, unless its what's loose and is pressing the LCD element somehow.

How was it packed when it arrived? There's a reason why the manufacturer inserts these screens in a foam sleeve when shipping, and this is it.

A:NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 400 won't work on HP flat screen monitor

I would guess that the card is not capable of displaying the required screen res. Are you getting a post display or are you able to enter the bios? Can you boot the system in safe mode? If you can enter the bios or safe mode and it is displayed normally, you can attempt a driver update. Note you will have to uninstall the current driver in safe mode.

You are dealing with 10yr old technology with that card. There comes a time where old stuff just cannot be used with modern hardware. This may well be the case here.

I just got a used Dell Inspiron 4500S from a guy - it is running Windows XP and boots up just fine. I have a Mag Innovision LT865B and all I get from it is "no signal". I emailed the guy and right away he said the PC probably isn't compatible with my flat screen (I did not tell him it was a flat screen, which it is). He offered to give me an old monitor (not flat screen) and said it would work with it - - or he has a Compaq that he said would work with my flat screen.

I don't mean to be dumb here, but why is that? I thought, well maybe the video card was bumped on the ride home, OR I could swap out the Dell video card for the one in my old PC that died (custom built one). I popped the hood of both and I cannot even figure out how to GET to the video card in the Dell, let alone swap it for my old one.

Mag's site has a trojan and Dell's site suggests something about three types of video connections . . . 1) display port connector, 2) integrated video card connector (which is the type of connection my monitor has) and 3) add-in video card in expansion slot. The information says that "Usually, integrated video cards are automatically disabled when an add-in video card is installed. The monitor must be connected to the add-in video card, if present."

Please help! Is there anything - within reason - I can do to get these two to work together? I am so close to being back in business (not literally, but I miss my home PC!) and yet, so far . ... Read more

Im an expat living in Veracruz Mx and have used Samsung monitors for many years in the US. I recently purchased 4 710 N monitors. after 6 months 2 failed for various reasons. I returned them to Samsung here and 3 months later they replaced them with 701 N's That was 6 months ago. Yesterday I switched one of them on and it came up with a solid white screen, all pixels on. I disconnected the monitor from the desktop and connected it to the laptop and same result. Additionally with the white screen none of the on screen menus will come up nor will it display video.....What Im wondering is short of a hardware failure (probable) has the monitor somehow entered a test mode which switches all the pixels on?? Are there not commonly known easter eggs (hold down button 3 and button 1 for example when powering up to enter test mode?) that I may have inadvertently activated, and if so how to reset things (if in fact thats the case). I REALLY dont want to return the monitor to service here because it s so lousy! Three MONTHS for a warranty replacement. any light anyone could shed on this problem would be deeply appreciated.
Thanks for the excellent forum. Additionally I did a forum search before posting and was not able to find any problem like this

It sounds like your system is not booting. As a quick test of your monitor, connect it to the system you are using now. That will tell you if the monitor is working or not.

HI, I just installed windows 2000 professional onto my computer. Everything works fine except that the resolution is really grainy. On some web sites I cannot even make out what the words are. I found out that when I go into my monitor settings in display properties I am unable to install the drivers for my monitor. Does anybody know a way in which I can get around this.
 

A:monitor drivers unable to install on fresh windows 2000 install

Are you really referring to the monitor drivers or the Dispay Adapter drivers?The symptoms you describe sound like the latter issue.

Monitor drivers are no big deal to install, and even if you don't, Windows should use compatible plug and play drivers. Still it's a good idea to install them -- but you get them from the Monitor vendor site. You get the Display Adapter drivers from the Display Adaptor vendor's site.

What Display Adapter model do you have? And are they properly installed?

To install a Monitor driver, you download and unzip the .inf file from the Vendor. Then you select "update driver" and browse to the location of the file you unzipped. Once installed your Monitor should be recognized by model number.

A used the included disc to reinstall the drivers after I reinstalled windows, and the software is unable to configure the drivers. The installer automatically opens a text file which tells me to open the hardware manager and open the "+" next to the Monitor. I don't seem to have a monitor on the list, and I'm not sure what to do. The correct screen size is not available from the display properties tab, presumably because I haven't configured it properly.

Hi Ethan.
Viewsonic is plug & play so once connected should self install and work.
Check it out here. Start / Control panel / Administrative tools / Computer management /Device Manager /Your Viewsonic should show up there.The disks that come with Viewsonic can be a little temperamental, Widows as all the viewsonic updates click onto windows updates use the custom setting and run,then in the left panel choose hardware updates.you will probably see the viewsonic latest update there and any more you may need for your PC.
Good luck

My system is Win XP Home Edition SP3 and up to date. I have just bought and installed a new monitor an AOC 2436Pwa. I switched off my PC, plugged in the VGA cable at both ends and attached the power cable. Started PC and I have sound and vision, I inserted the Installation CD that came with the monitor and read through the various instructions. I went to install the driver on the disc and followed the instructions but when I am asked to choose the drive for the disc Windows tells me that there isn't anything there. Even when I browse to the disc drive I get the same result. Windows seems to be using the same plug and play driver as was used for my previous two monitors for this new one.

Hey Guys, I just bought a HP Pavillon desktop with a W1907 19 inch flat panel monitor. I've been using it for a couple of days and everytime that I turn it on a dialog box pops up stating that software has been detected. This software is the device drivers for the monitor, and it asks me if I would like to install them. But when I try to install them, an error message states simply that the installation failed due to an error. It doesn't even tell me what the error was! All it says is to go to the site of the company that made the monitor for support. So I go to the HP website, and try to download the driver from there. Lo and behold, it won't install AGAIN! It says it failed to install because an error occured. I cannot tell you how frustrated I am that this unit is ALREADY having problems, and that HP won't tell me what the error is! So can someone out there please help me?

I've been doing OK with the driver issues in Vista x64 but have run into a road block with the monitor drivers.
It's a Viewsonic Graphic Series G220F and I have the Vista x64 driver from View sonic but it doesn't install.
They even know it won't install because at the end of installation there is a pop up telling you how to manually install the driver-which doesn't work either.
Everything installs to C:\Viewsonic. About 50 to 75 .icm files including G220F.icm. obviously the one I need. There are also 11 .inf files, 3 of which contain install info for this monitor. But no mater which .inf I use to install- it can't find another file, G220F.icm I assume, and aborts the install. I can manually point windows to the .inf file but there is no way to point the .inf file to the .icm file.
Can someone tell me how to solve this or is there a universal Vista64 display driver other than the ones with it? 1024x768 is as good as it gets.

Hey, I'm wondering if I should hurry up and exchange this monitor before the 30-day period is over.

Last night for a few mins it looked as though everything on the screen sort of had a trail. Like when you have the trail turned on for the mouse. Anyway, it went away a couple minutes later. But this morning when I turned it on I had the same trail type look on all the icons, and there was an occasional blink of the screen. I tightened the monitor cable but the trail remained. Then I left the room and came back, and they were gone.

Do I need a new monitor, or does this happen with all flat panels?
 

A:Flat Panel Monitor

It may not be the flat panel that is the problem. First check to see if this trail exists outside of your operating system. Like go to the BIOS or DOS, does it happen there too? Don't use the MS-DOS shortcut in windows because you are still running the monitor driver that it loaded. Your problem could be software related, corrupt or incorrect drivers.

If you do have correct drivers and connects, it may be monitor. I don't know it all, but this is my theory.

I am currently experiencing a problem with my monitor, and I am at a loss to explain the cause. I have a Liquid Video 17" flat panel, and as of three weeks ago, it has begun to "blip" out, intermittently. There is no regular pattern to it, and I can find no specific action that causes the monitor to act up. I have tried updating the video drivers, to no avail. The video card has been replaced (due to out-dated-ness), also to no avail. In order to test the monitor, it was hooked up to another person's computer, and the monitor works perfectly.

The computer was originally built by CyberPower Inc., in 2002. Since that time, the MoBo, video card, memory, and two hard drives have been upgraded or replaced. Am currently running W2K. Processor is an AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.3Ghz, and has 1GB memory, with a 40GB and 60GB hard drive. Vid card is GeForce FX 5200, with 128MB memory.

As far as I know, there's no problem leaving the monitor on for an extended period. I use two LCD flat-screen monitors and have never experienced a problem.

Hello, I'm new to these forums, but I hope that you can help me with my issue.

I recently got a second monitor and have been trying to get the two monitors to work in "extend" mode, where you drag the mouse off of one side to get to the other monitor.

The two monitors are a Viewsonic VA2037a-LED, and an AOC e2051Sn.

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon R7 200 series.

My current setup is as follows: I have a VGA Y-splitter connected to the Graphics card VGA port. Attached on the Y-end of the Y-splitter are the two monitors. It looks like this:

------------------

Here is my issue, and it's a bit complicated. Basically, Windows only recognizes this as *one* monitor. Both monitors work fine -- they act like they're mirrored right now. But that's because Windows only recognizes this as *one* monitor, rather than *two*. Hitting Detect does nothing, and hitting Identify shows the big "1" on both monitors.

It gets more interesting though. In the device manager, I can only find ONE monitor "installed", a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor". Looking at the driver location (C:/Windows/System32/monitor.sys), it's likely that Windows is just throwing the default monitor driver it has at anything that comes through the VGA port.

In trying to fix the problem, I came to, of course, reinstalling drivers. First, I reinstalled my GPU driver. Next, I began to try to install the ViewSonic driver from the CD it came with (the Viewsonic is the new dri... Read more

A:Windows monitor drivers can't install correctly

This is normal. Just connecting a y-splitter cable to a single port isn't going to be enough. Each monitor needs a dedicated output port to have an independent display. In some cases a video card will have a specialized single port that can drive two independent displays with a specialized cable, but it doesn't sound like yours is one of those.

Also, there are no drivers for monitors, and what most people think of as drivers are just color profiles. So you're wasting your time on that one. PC to monitor communication is one-way, meaning there's no need for a driver. The only real exceptions might be if a monitor has a built-in webcam or some such.

What you need to do is dump the y-splitter and connect each monitor via its own port on the video card. With LCD monitors, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort is by far preferable to VGA. The only way a y-splitter would work is if you're using the one provided along with the video card designed specifically for that kind of function. Just attaching a y-splitter on a normal VGA port will get you exactly what you describe. I will also save you some time, trouble and probably expense by telling you that you shouldn't bother trying any DVI to VGA adapters or something similar. You can't convert a digital signal to analog just by rerouting some pins in an adapter.

I just bought a Dell 1901 flat panel monitor and am having problems. I am using Windows 98SE, 383 mb of RAM and I think that the video card is NVIDIA TNT 2 M64 4xAGP.

The monitor works fine when I am viewing a webpage and the page is still. The problems occur when I scroll using either the mouse or the arrow keys. On a webpage with a white background and blue links, the blue links turn aqua/turquoise as the page scrolls. The white background has a bit of a blue cast due to all of the turquoise. When I am viewing a webpage with a dark background, sometimes the part that I am scrolling gets very dark and the wording is almost illegible. Everything goes back to normal once I stop scrolling and the page is still.

It is as if, when the page is scrolling, there is extra "white" behind the monitor. (I know this sounds nuts but this is the best way to describe it.)

This is the second 1901 I received from Dell. I sent the first one back because I was sure it was defective. This one is doing exactly the same thing.

Is it my video card? Drivers?

I am not a computer guru and Dell is not being at all helpful in trying to come up with an answer.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Suddenly my monitor quit working a couple days ago. I guess it's about 4 or 5 yrs old. Never a problem until Sun a.m. When I got up my computer was dead. Put a new power supply in and then everything worked. Checked my e-mail and later came back and the monitor wouldn't work. I have a new moniter now, but wonder if there is any way to trouble shoot the old one. I don't know if they are worth doing anything with or not.
Thanks.

I was prepared to purchase a Dell Ultrasharp 19 inch monitor for a system I am currently building when someone suggested that I consider a Dell 17 inch LCD TV monitor instead (screen of TV a couple of inches shorter in height but a couple of inches wider). They said it would function the same, but would allow me to split screen documents (view two pages at once) and be better for video viewing (movies, presentation videos, etc.).

I do biomedical research so my primary use for this new monitor/computer will be statistical analysis (medical and financial programming (SAS, SPSS, EXCEL), internet research, digital picture analysis (MRI, CAT, ultrasound images, etc.), digital video (presentations and analysis)...and non-work related DVD viewing and music recording, burning and listening (all work and no play... gotta have a life too. ;o) ).

I'd really appreciate help to know which monitor system would be best for these uses? Would there be any difference in refresh rates or letter clarity (documents)? Ultimately I guess I am wondering about the pros and cons of each type.

Thank you *very much* once again for your help!

I am a graphic designer and I am looking to buy this kind of monitor - all sites that review and CRT monitor models have out of date recommendations (2002 was the best I could find)

looking for fair price 19" FLAT! CRT with high resolution and lower dot pitch .

Thanks, the lemurian.
 

A:looking for a professional 19" flat CRT monitor for graphics

It's hard to find CRT's these days as most people go flat panels. Dell makes the best bang for the buck flat panels if you're considering going this way.

Other than that, we just bought a Samsung SyncMaster 19" as these are some of the most readily available and fair price 19" true-flat screen monitors. We're extremely happy with it.

I was always a hardcore Sony fan, but you just can't find Sony CRT's anymore...

Edit- here's a link to the one we got. It's FLAT (as in totally flat), .20 dot pitch, 1920x1440 resolution,

Hi all,

Recently, my Dell flat-panel monitor has been turning off on its own (green power light does not light on). I'll push the power button back on and the screen will come back on for a split second and then turn right back off. On some tries, it doesn't even come back on.

I tried plugging the monitor power cord into another outlet and I am still havintg the same issues. I do not have an extra monitor to test to see if the problems occurs with another monitor.

I don't know if the monitor is overheating, if that's even possible? Or if it just old and needs replacing. The monitor is probably ~5 years old. Right now, I've left the computer shut off for a few hours, and I haven't had this problem recur tonight, yet.

I don't see a model # on the screen but if anyone needs additional information I can gladly try to provide.

Thanks in advance~

Cheaper to replace that 5-year old. You got your money worth out of that display.
