Second monitor goes blank (GeForce GT320) After a few minutes of use, but still works OK when turned
Hi
I have two monitors set up on a GeForce GT320, and for some reason the second monitor (Acer AL2216W) has started to just go blank after a few minutes of operation. I can switch it off & on again & its fine for a short while then goes blank again.

I don't think its the monitor, and suspect the Video Card.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this please?

(I have all the most up to date drivers for the Video card and the monitor)

Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome to the forums! /w00twave.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':w00twave:' />

Issues like this are typically not drivers/software related and almost always due to a bad cable and/or adaptor.

Would suggest trying a different cable as the first thing to try, and more often then not that will fix this.

Hi Joshua
OK I'll check those.
What are the chances that the monitor is faulty? (do they "die" like this, or do they just normally stop working altogether. When it is on, the image quality is as good as ever.

thanks
