Hello peeps.
I have a fujitsu siemens monitor 17" with a bluish led that indicates that has signal and goes orange when it has no signal.


For the last weeks sometimes, when I turn it on (I always switch it off if I 'm away) the blue led starts to blink, the screen is all black, and I  can hear briefly a sound that is similar to unplugging the speakers.

The monitor cannot be turned off, I can only unplug it from the power outlet.

Point is, that I don't think it's something goingon with my tower, because if I unplug and plug the monitor a few times from the power, it starts working again (and the CPU indicators are blinking nicely).

I thought something was wrong with my VGA cable and I replaced it with a new one.

Can you help me, do you have ANY idea why is this happening?

Thanx a bunch!

The only solution I could provide while waiting for a more conclusive suggestions are try updating/reinstalling your video drivers, use a different monitor or clean internally your desktop specifically the video card slot. There maybe a default settings button also for your monitor which you could toggle in between when troubleshooting.
