I have a 6 month old iiyama 17" monitor which has just
started to randomly switch into a blank-screen mode
(you can hear the monitor "mode-click") - possibly a
power saving mode? The power light stays on, but the
image only comes back if you switch off and on again.

As the monitor warms up, the screen blanks more
and more frequently (seconds), and even blanks
during the machine BIOS boot stage (so it isn't
windows). I have tried it with a second video card,
and even a second machine, and its definitely the
monitor...

Now obviously the monitor is still under guarentee, but
the previous monitor I had (different brand) did exactly
the same thing after about 4 years. Is this horrible
coincidence, or is there something more sinister that
might be affecting the monitor?

Hi swarr

Yes it sounds like the monitor is going bad. You might want to get a surge supressor for your AC line if you don't have one. But you probably just got a bad monitor. At least its still under warranty! :)
