I've had a viewsonic LCD monitor since 2004, it seems to be giving a problem now where, when I shut down or restart, the display instead of going to black, "frosts over" to white. It's a gradual process where a christmas-decoration like frosting display covers the screen, before going totally white.
When booting up, the display will either be completely scrambled or not appear at all until I switch off the monitor and switch it on again. After booting up, the problem is gone till I shut down or restart. Anyone know the cause of this?
Awhile ago I was having a problem with my 3D card (Geforce 6800 ultra) which was diagnosed as a loose connection, where the card sometimes would not power up properly. This stopped in January when I took my PC into a technician, but now I'm left with this scrambled/frosted display.
