Swapping the cable didn't help, apparently. Now vary the other parts.
Recently my monitor started going black for a few seconds and then it would come back on. It progressed to the point where the monitor was always black - when you turned the pc on the monitor would say NO SIGNAL and go black.
I figured it was the cable, so I checked to make sure the connections were tight (they were) and then bought a replacement monitor cable.
I put the new cable on and the monitor would work again but almost immediately it started going black for a few seconds and now it will not come back on at all again.
Is my monitor dead? If it was my monitor why did the new cord work for a short time - it doesn't make sense, of course I am clueless about this kind of stuff. That is why I hope you can help.
Thanks in advance for you time.
