    I have a KDS VS 190 monitor. Do you know of any reason why the screen would
    go black for no reason?
    Sometimes its fine for 8 hours sometimes for 30 minutes. The monitor is
    about 3 years old.
    I have an ATI 9200
    1GIG RAM
    P4 @ 3.4gig
    I have hooked up the computer to another monitor and havent experienced any
    problems.
    Any suggestions would be helpful in monitor trouble shooting, couldnt find a
    newsgroup for monitors.
    Thanks in advance

    It sounds like your old monitor has an intermitent thermal fault that causes
    it to go black. That symptom can be almost impossible to diagnose.
