Hello,
I have a strange problem and hope to get a solution here...
When I turn my desktop computer on, the monitor stays dead.
Then, if I unplug its AC plug from the back of the computer, and hook it up directly in the wall, it works, but graphics are wrong and icons on my desktop are placed at different positions.
If I plug any other appliance on the computer's AC outlets, it works!!!

I'm wondering if problem emanates from graphic card?

OS is Windows XP
Motherboard is A-Open MX4SGI-4DN2
Monitor is LG W2053TQV

Any help welcome,
Paul

Hello pt109.

It appears that the monitor's power cable has become defective? Get a new power cord, or perhaps you have a spare you can try. You can get one from http://www.amazon.co...T/dp/B000BSHHMK
What make and model of monitor is it?

I doubt if the logs will shed any light on this particular problem, but please read the Instructions and post the requested logs.

CNM,
It was indeed a faulty A/C cord. (doh!)

Thanks.
