Hi Folks,

Bit of a weird one here. We have a laptop, Acer TravelMate 250 and we have connected a external monitor which is a Viewsonic 17" flatscreen.

It worked straight out of the box, but after about 30 minutes the Viewsonic goes into standby mode, and to get the picture back you just cycle the power on the monitor.

The first time you use the monitor it generally stays on for about 30 min, and then once it faults, it faults again more frequently the longer you leave it on.

I have connected the monitor to my desktop VGA port and it seems fine (so far) - so I am guessing the laptop thinks the monitor has gone????

But would love other ideas/feedback on this issue?

Cheers in advance
