Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
sorry if this is an easy one, I've only got a bit at a public computer and haven't had time to really look around for the answer
seemingly my monitor is broken, it's been doing this thing for a long while (year and change) where, when you start it up, or turn the monitor on after it's been off for a while, it'll flash the power light on and off and give no picture
computer boots up fine and has done whenever it does this
so the blue power light blinks on and off and the screen is black the entire time. Sometimes after a few seconds/minutes, it'll flash the message "going to sleep" and go into sleep mode, and the light on the monitor will turn a steady orange
can't tell you the monitor model number or code or anything other than I think it's called a "median" or something similar. I'll look it up when i get home
it's an LCD monitor, about 8 years old
I bought a new monitor--CPU cable, whatever it's called, the 15 pin one, and it's doing the same thing, so it's not that
restarting the monitor doesn't help
neither does restarting the computer (I say this now, but BEFORE, sometimes restarting the computer has helped, maybe?)
like I said, it's been doing this for a while, but it would "catch" a couple of seconds into the CPU startup and work as normal with a little flickering
don't want to drop 100+ bucks on a new monitor unless it's necessary
