Nice to meet all here!
I am hoping this will be an easy diagnosis by the experts here.
This is the second time I am experiencing this problem.
This is a new monitor, just a couple of months old.
Today (as happened the first time I had this problem) I returned to my computer after a few hours
to find that the monitor was black.
It also had no power. I pressed the power button on the monitor but it didn't come back to life.
I shut down and re-booted the computer (same as the first time I had the problem).
Everything started up properly except for the monitor. It still had no power.
When I plugged in my old monitor (also a Samsung) it worked, no problems.
This is the monitor I am currently using to write this.
I sent in the monitor for repairs and when the tech guy called me he said he had no problems with the monitor. In the end he decided to replace the motherboard and power supply just to be safe.
He returned the monitor and I had been using it for about three weeks before it failed again today.
Does anyone here know what could be the problem and how I should proceed to get it working again?
I also have one more question.
If I unplug the monitor from the computer (VGA cable) and just plug in the power cable for the monitor, should I see the blue power light that used to come on with the monitor connected to the computer?
I am using WinXP.
The MB is an AOpen i855 GMEm-LFS
