10-06-2000, 05:10 PM
I'm working in internet club and in short time of one month 4 monitors are out of order. Here we have wiev point 15 and 17" monitors some of them got problems with simptoms (they were very unstabile and the screen was blinking).
Is it posible somehow a virus to produce a kind of forcing a video card to generate a dificulties for monitors. :-)
Or maybe the electricity is unstable?
please help me to solve this problem

Do you have these monitors and computers plugged into a surge protector? Or are they just straight wall plug in? If you have surge protector, power fluctuations shouldn't be the problem. I have heard of a virus that made monitors blow up, but I havent' seen it in writing, just heard it through the grapevine.

Best thing to do is swap the problem monitors with known good ones, that don't have any problems. See if the replacement monitors do the same thing, or if the ones you removed do the same thing on other systems. That will tell you if it's the monitors having problems, or something within the computers or Operating Systems, like drivers or power problems.
If you had everything...Where would you put it?
