Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM keeps blacking out

by seekdestroy16 / March 28, 2013 1:57 PM PDT

Hey all, I own a Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM monitor and it keeps blacking out for some reason and normally i figure out these things but this time the cause is unknown to my knowledge.

Basically it happens when I am just web surfing with either chrome or firefox, I have two 17" dell monitors on the left and right side of the Samsung. It will just black out and the power light stays on, i can move my mouse from the left screen to the right screen but i cannot get it to turn back on by turning off/on the monitor, changing the source back to a different one and back again.

The only solution is to wait like 3-5 minutes and do nothing, and it eventually turns back on. It keeps doing this though, google searching it only brings me useless garbage from fixya. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
