  1. Hi I have a LG W2243S flatron and a new medion MD8855 computer running windows 7 which both have been working fine...and yet the monitor for no aparant reason and with no warning turns off!! the red on/off light goes out completely the LG symbol comes up and the monitor turns off, you just saait and wait and it comes on again, Ihave plugged unplugged I have checked for latest drivers, all up to date because as I say it is new.

    While writng this it has turned off 8 times!!
    Please suggestions?

    Thankyou regards

    First you need to try the monitor on another computer. If it works on another computer then your problem is most likely the video card.
