Hello guys! i have a little problem here.. the thing is this...
I have a Proview 15" LCD Monitor (Probably like 4 ~ 5yrs old) it's been great until 3 ~ 5 weeks ago... it is now doing some weird blinking when i turn it on.. really annoying..
Yesterday, it didn't start.. i mean.. i pressed the Power button and the led worked, but it kept blinking and never showed any image..
I spent like 4hrs trying to see if it was my PC or something.. i even flashed the current bios just to be sure.. i tweaked everything on the bios and nothing.. weird thing is, i removed a ram, worked... and both ram modules works fine xD no matter in which slot were they inserted.. they worked.. but when i plugged in both, it didn't (i guess, just a coincidence)
Today, like 20mins ago.. i turned on the PC, and nothing, but i let the monitor blinking.. all of a sudden
windows startup sound! so... my PC is no the one with the problem.. because it booted..
I'm thinking.. it's probably 2 things..
1) My 5yr old Monitor (VGA connector)
2) My 1yr old XFX 8400gs (PCI Express x16)
I want to find out which one is it.. i'm leaning towards the monitor.. the issue is.. i don't have another monitor to plug on the XFX, and i don't have another PC to plug the monitor...
I connected the DVI-to-VGA adapter and plugged it in the DVI slot... and it worked.. BUT, i took it off, connected on the VGA, an also worked.. i'm thinking of connecting it on the integrated VGA port on the MoBo and see if it works.. but still.. it's a random thing, it doesn't happen everyday and it IS freaking annoying..
What would you guys recommend?? Thanks in advance!
