I just came back to my PC, the monitor had gone into sleep mode, and the entire screen was a bright white colour when I moved the mouse around to wake it up. I could just barely determine the desktop behind it. I switched the monitor off and on - no difference. I reset the computer, still washed out. I unplugged the monitor from the computer, turned it on and it was still completely washed out.
I've only had this monitor for about 6 months, it was a brand new LG Flatron 910B 19" flat screen monitor. Can anyone give me a clue as to whats going on with it - is it time for a new monitor or is this a simple problem?
I'm now on a crappy 14' monitor and everything is working fine, so I'm pretty sure this is monitor specific, and not video card problems.
