Screen shuffle off

  • A monitor that turns on periodically by itself may not get enough power from the outlet again.
  • Check the circuit breaker at home and make sure the power cable is properly connected.
  • Carefully check the display case itself or the power adapter; If one of them is too hot to touch for more than a few seconds, it should be replaced immediately.

The presence of cracks or dots on the screen

    If your computer screen has some visible black dots or lines, you should first try pressing it hard enough to change the screen.

    Typically pressing it softens and releases the pixels, at which point the dots and lines disappear.

    However, if pressing on it does not remove or loosen the dots, the only way to solve it is to replace the screen.

    Screen fonts and dots are often manageable and not a barrier to productivity or your use of the computer itself.

    If the lines and dots are not an obstacle for you then there is no need to replace them.

Screen beeps

    Among the most common computer screen malfunctions is also hearing annoying sounds from the screen, and there may be a problem or a defect in the graphics card or RAM.

    In this case, you should send the computer screen to a specialized technician so that he can disassemble the screen and solve the problem of the card or install the RAM in its correct place, so as not to hear these annoying sounds again.
