Old Monitor Dying?
Return to board index
Hi, I recently started using a two monitor setup. To keep a long story short, a few weeks ago I reacquired my old monitor from years past and I've been using it as a secondary monitor.
Within the past hour, I noticed it was flickering, dimming and changing brightness rapidly, and that there were horizontal lines appearing and blinking all over the place. My computer setup is still relatively new, (replaced all the parts in July) so I don't think it would be having any trouble, and my primary monitor (which is about as new as the computer) isn't acting up at all. I tried changing what DVI port the second monitor was plugged into and even unplugging it altogether and and noticed it still flickered (monitor shows a short "No Signal" message). I even tried changing what socket it was plugged into for power, no dice.
This monitor is 6, maybe 7 years old and its been used regularly since day one. Is it safe to say this is the end of the line for my little old Princeton monitor?
