Hi,

I have Windows XP with service pack 3. My Dell monitor has been going through phases where it decides to shut off. It is more frequent and getting more difficult to get it to come back on. I assume this is connected with the following error message I've been receiving when I shut down: "Program not Responding: IAAMonitor notify app" Usually I have to select "end now" or my computer will not shut down.

I have checked all wires, etc. and run my Kaspersky Anti-virus with no results. I'm convinced this is a software issue. Can you help me before my monitor becomes not visible at all?

Thank you!

It has nothing to do with your monitor. IAAMonitor stands for
Intel® Application Accelerator

Do you have a raid array?

Please provide more info..."shuts off".
Does the screen just go blank?
Does the power light stay lit? (green)
Does it change color? (orange)
Does the power light turn off?
What is the model # of your monitor?

The screen goes black and the power button stays green. Sometimes I can turn the power button off, then back on and the screen will come back. At times, it won't come back after many attempts and/or restarting the computer. The monitor is a Dell flat screen and I can't get to the model number without unplugging the power cable to the monitor (is there another way?).

I'm not sure if I have a raid array - no clue what that is.

Thanks again for your help.

A majority of posts i found with this issue points to the
backlight going bad. No fix...buy a new monitor.
Some troubleshooting tips:
Hook up a known good monitor.
Change out video card with a known good one.
Double check all cables and connections, make sure they are tight.
Hope that helps.
