|I have a V7 22" W monitor and I am running a GeForce video card. I have had the monitor about 4 yrs. It has worked flawlessly this whole time, and now I am noticing a problem with it that I am thinking is the monitor, but not sure if that's the problem and what to do about it.|
I have my computer set to shut down the monitor after 20 minutes of idle time. I recently noticed that in the morning when I go to "wake up" the monitor by rolling the mouse, that it does not come on immediately. There is an orange indicator light and when I roll the mouse, the light disappears totally. After maybe 15 seconds, the indicator light blinks green about 2-3 times and goes back out. This happens 3 or 4 times, and eventually the monitor comes on and works perfectly. I also have this problem if I shut the entire computer down and it has had time to "cool down". The monitor takes forever. Is there something going wrong with the monitor and this is "advance warning" or is it something to do with the video card? Like I said, when it's on...it's perfect!
