Screen problem...

by Un7ucky / December 6, 2010 4:46 AM PST

Ok, here is my problem:

When I power on my computer screen (the computer is on too) it goes good for about 2-4 seconds and then it goes black. No light at all, but the screen is still on.

I started doing something similar few days ago : when the computer went in sleep mode and I try to bring it back the screen did same but after some times it returned good.
Now it just does what I described first... I tried with another screen and it works perfectly so you guys have any ideas?

Sorry for my poor english, thanks for help!

Any electronic tech who has the right ViewSonic service manual. Or maybe just experience and a little bit of luck is enough. Now go and find one.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
