Ok - I bought a Dell 17" tft off Ebay recently , used it for a day all seemed fine. The next day I had blue screen of death , the cmos battery had gone , changing the boot up , so I replaced that and comp booted up no probs BUT now the monitor would flick on for a second then go black , windows was fine in the background..
If I held the moni on/off button sometimes the pic would come back and even maybe stay for an hour.
I tried the moni on the upstairs computer - same thing , so I grabbed the old school monitor from upstairs with an hard wired vga cable in its back and this works fine.
I assume the moni is then broke and get refund.
Now I buy another (samsung) from Ebay , plug it in my comp ... same thing.
Take it upstairs no go either , bring the old moni back down .. works fine.
In the mean time I had tried next doors widescreen 15" and that worked fine but I didnt like the screen size..
So have I been unlucky and bought 2 duffers or is it possible my computer as done it - blown 2 monitors??? Im tearing my hair out!!
