Welcome to BC!

Well sounds like your monitor is going. If you slap it and it comes back. How old is this computer system or monitor?

Check the wires running to the pc make sure the plug is screwed in.

Now I just read you say you havent had it long. Is your pc older? It could be a video card. They also go out and things like this can happen.

Um is this the same computer your bad HD came from?
is this a Flat Panel (skinny) or a CRT (fat)?
if its CRT Nothing wrong with giving it a good beating and it makes you feel better. =)
But when slapping it sometimes brings the picture back i would have to agree with CGM3.
When you replace it do your self a favor if you don't need the room get a CRT will save you ALLOT of money and unless your a Gamer/Artist the LCDs are pointless IMO

Just my $.02 but what do i know~

P.S. i'll post in your bad HD post about a thought i have.

No problem at all. sorry can't tell you how to fix it yourself, but it would be cheaper getting a new one. specially at this time when stores have sales. /nod

I'm a Gamer but give me 4 17"CRT's over 1 17"LCD any day! (Except the second Wednesday of next week)
