My mother called up and said the power went out and that she couldn't get the monitor on her desktop computer on, so she changed to an older monitor we had.
I figured she just didn't know what she was doing, anyway a couple months later when I'm at her house I figure I could use the monitor as an extra screen for my laptop, when I plug it in it appears to be working correct, it flashes the ACER logo and says "no input" or whatever because it is yet to be plugged into the laptop.
Now, as soon as I plug into the laptop, the screen appears to just shut off, the button for power doesn't do anything. My PC detects it though, and I can now move my mouse completely out of the screen as though it is working.. but I see no picture.
This is a pretty new hardly used 22'' monitor.
Any ideas what is going on?
There is also this button on the monitor that if I hold down for a few seconds the screen comes up to where I can see it.
But then it poofs in about 10 seconds and I have to press the button again.. What is crap is this.
Figure out what the issue is and I'll send ya 1 BTC.
Monitor is ACER p215h if that helps.
