Hello, I have a monitor problem!
My Specs first:
i7 3970 x
Nvidia GTX 690
32 gig corsair Dominator RAM
Windows 7 professional
Monitor issue and the problem solving steps I've taken are as follows.
I have 3 x 27 inch ACER LED monitors, Model number S271HL. I use a high quality DVID cable for all three monitors. All three worked great for a long time, and two still do. Currently, Two monitor power buttons turn blue when on, auburn while in sleep mode, and off when powered off. This is normal.
Problem: The monitor in question, has problems starting after the power has cycled on and off. The power button on this monitor stays auburn when the display is working. It does not turn blue at all, anymore. It only turns auburn or off.
When I turn the computer off, that monitor stays on, and the screen starts to cycle through Green, White, Blue and Red screens. If I pull the power cord from the monitor and plug it back in, when I am ready to turn my machine back on, the monitor flashes the auburn color on the power button.
When the power button is flashing, My computer can see three monitors, but the display of the monitor in question, stays black or off even though it is giving a signal to the machine.
The flash will slowly get longer and stronger until the monitor comes back to life... Light tuns solid, monitor comes back on.
Note: I can sometimes turn the power light off while it is on a long flash, and if I wait a minute, the power will come right on.(That is only if the flashes are getting stronger) Also, sometimes I can plug the DVID cable in and the connection bumps the power switch solid, It may just be a timing coincidence. My power button on that monitor has been flashing for two days now. It is getting stronger, but very slowly.
I have plugged in the DVID cables into the other monitors, and switched ports to problem solve. Cables and ports are not the problem. I have tested and the other monitors work in all ports and with any cable.
Thanks for your help!
