My monitor gives a black screen automatically. When I turn on the computer, it is working normally, but when I am at the login screen, after a few seconds it will just flash a bit and turn off.
Then I do the following:
- Press the Windows button + P
- Press the right arrow
- Press Enter
The problem is now solved, but after like 10 seconds it will flash again and I am getting the exact same problem. I can continue using this quick-fix, but it is very annoying.
Also, the strange thing is, that it sometimes actually works normally. I can work for hours just fine. But when I shutdown my PC and start it again, the problem might be back again.
I have a Geforce 7600GS video card and downloaded and installed the latest drives from the official Nvidia website.
Any suggestions on what the problem is and how to solve?
I experience the same problem when I turn on the monitor on a different computer.
I could work with the monitor for a whole afternoon without any problems. But I wanted to change the brightess, so I opened the menu of the monitor and changed the brightness. Then the monitor turned off suddenly.
Now every time I apply one of the quick-fixes (e.g. turning the monitor on and off) it starts working again, but just for 1 or 2 seconds. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.
