Thread Starter 
yesterday, i went to turn on my monitor [the pc was allready on] and the display just flashed, and it turned off. i tried to turn it back on and the power light didnt even go on.

i unplugged it from both sides and pluged it in again, nope. no cigar.

i called gateway [where i got the monitor from] just to find out that it's out of warranty, they can't help me. o well i said and hung up.

i called the local pc store, they said bring it in and we'll take a look at it. i went there. they plugged it in...it works. im like ***. i felt like a dumbass.

so now i just plugged it in my outlet again and it works. idk what went wrong but im happy i dont hae to dish out 200 bucks on another monitor

You may have felt like a dumbass but at least you didn't spend a penny on it

Nice to know it had a happy ending

Sometimes you just need to let the power drain out of the board before it boots properly. Happens to me when i overclock too far, i have to turn off mains power for 30mins and reboot.

It could be a faulty backlight. I remember once my dad thought that his monitor was dead. Upon very close inspection, I could see an image; there was just no light behind it.

They have replacement fluorescent lights for LCDs. They're tiny and extremely fragile. Gotta be careful before taking apart the monitor and while handling the fluorescent lights.

its doing it again. I cant turn it on. When i connect to power it just flashes for few secs and it turns off. The power light is bright than gies dim and bright again than turns off (night/day mode light) its very annyoing... I have it unplugged right now. Ill let u know the outcome in few minutes if it turns back on.

PSU might be on the way out.

Do you have a spare one you could try?
