As of about 6 months ago in the morning, when I turned on my PC sometimes the monitor would say...'No Signal Detected'. Then go on 'Stand By'. I tried all sorts of things. Like...
Switching the monitor on and off
Unplugging it and re-plugging it to the PC
Rebooting the PC
Switching the PC fully off, then on again
Eventually the monitor would come on and all would be fine, until either the next day or a few days later. Then I would go through the whole scenario again and again. Until eventually nomatter what I did it wouldn't come on at all.
So I thought I'll try hooking up a spare TV I wasn't using. It came on straight away. But the screen was smaller than I wanted for playing on line games. So I decided to buy a new monitor. I plugged it in and that too came on straight away. My thought was the old monitor must have become faulty. Thinking I might take the back off and have a look at it sometime, I kept it.
A few months later and the new monitor started doing the same thing as the older one had done. So, for no reason, other than a whim, I thought I'll try putting the older one in again. Straight away it was up and running, no problems. Until a few weeks passed and it all started again. So once again I swapped back to the new one and it was fine, until yesterday and it's started acting up again.
I did all what I'd done before but with no joy. So, thinking that the fault could lay at the feet of the Graphics Card, I plugged it into the on board graphics port 'Intel HD Graphics & Media' and it came on straight away. How long it would be before it once again starts acting up I don't know. But if it is the fault of the graphics card, my money is on a driver.
But, whatever it can't remain like this, because although the picture looks fine, as far as it goes. It's not good enough or fast enough for online MMORPG's, which I am somewhat addicted to, so one way or another it's going to have to be sorted. Which is where you guys come in...HELP ME! Please
