Monitor flickers when it is turned on - problem
by doowopper - 4/20/09 4:41 AM
I am using a Samsung monitor with my Windows XP Professional computer. The monitor is about 4 years old. Typically, I turn the monitor off if I am not going to be using it for awhile. I had no problems with the monitor until last week. Now when I turn it on, the brightness is not what is should be (it is darker)and the screen flickers for a few seconds. After the flickering stops, the brightness of the screen returns to normal. Before last week, when I turned the monitor on, there was no flickering and the brightness was as it should be as soon as I turned on the monitor.
What could be causing this problem and how do I correct it, if it is possible to correct?
