Whenever i turn my monitor off (VGA, Optiquest Q19wb) for an extended period of time, and turn it back on, it comes on for about a second and then turn off, still getting power and everything, just the screen goes black..
I recently upgraded to 16gb of ram and bought 2 new 4GB sticks (ADATA) and the problem has been happening since.
The video card is not old, maybe a year or so but the monitor is probably close to 5 give or take a year.
I am wondering if because i have too much going on in my PC now, that the additional RAM i put in is not letting enough power get to my monitor to produce a picture on the screen.
I have a 650 watt PSU..
16GB DDR3 ram
4 Internal HDDs (2 desktop, 2 laptop) and one external laptop drive plugged in at almost all times.
2 video cards, 2 monitors (the older of the two is the problematic one)
AMD Phenom II X2 running at 3.2 GHz, not overclocked at all.
Do you think its a PSU relates issue, faulty RAM (no errors showed up using memtest86 for over an hour) or just coincidence and either the video card or monitor is starting to go..?
i know i could individually test all parts involved but i am just wondering if i can save time and maybe someone else has run into this problem before..?
Any help or insight at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
