Why is my computer screen starting to go to black at random times? Can I fix this easily or at a shop, rather than buy a new one?
It is best if you can borrow a monitor and see if it does the same thing with another monitor. If it does, then it could be your graphics chip/card causing the problem. If another monitor works fine, then it's probably time for a new monitor. You can get some pretty nice ones for about $125.00 from Dell or ASUS. Monitors just don't last as long any more. But that's the best test. Borrow one and check it out. Cheaper to buy a new one than have a Tech check it out. I know most techs charge at least $125.00 an hour to work on your unit.
Well the 1 easiest way I know of is to push the 2 monitor plugs in securely on the back of the monitor.
