  1. My monitor seems to have bit the dust. It is about 2 months old.

    Normally when the monitor is plugged in the power light goes into stand by mode, which blinks in one second intervals.

    However two days ago when I powered down the PC the monitor did not go into stand by mode, it went into some sort of test mode. I did not realize it at first and it was in the test mode all night. I cannot remember what the message was on screen, I did not think anything of it the next day and powered down the monitor by pressing the power button.

    Now a day or so afterwards, I go to power on the PC the monitor will not power up any more. I checked the connections and they all seem to be ok. One item I did notice is when I plug the power cord into the monitor, the power light will light up for a second then it will go dark. I press the power button, the unit will not power up or even go into stand by mode.

    Any ideas on how to get the unit to work again?

    Thanks in advance.
