Monitor doesn't turn on and makes noiseI have posted a video as it is hard to explain the sound http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j5Z... coming from my proview lcd monitor. At about .19 seconds you hear a sort of scratching sound when i turn the monitor on. Usually it has been off all night. Anyway i turn it on and off a few times with breaks in between and eventually the monitor will turn on and function well for hours. Is it on the way out when it makes this noise. Never heard anything like it before. It will even continue the noise for a bit after i flick the power switch off at the wall. The blue on light never shows when it is making that scratchy sound. When it is operational there is always a blue light.

Internal electrical fault is most likely cause. The monitor could continue to work like that for months or it could fizzle out tomorrow, difficult to say for sure, so all you can do is keep using until it either gets worse or fails altogether.
