My New Monitor!
« on: November 17, 2021, 12:12:28 PM »
Lately, my monitor would keep blinking rapidly until the Welcome screen would show. This started maybe a week or so ago soon after a windows upgrade. I assumed it was the upgrade but after a 2nd one some days later it was still doing it.

2 days ago, I turned it on and it continued to blink well after it was fully loaded! I figured it had to be the monitor or the video card. I assumed it was the monitor since I've updated the video card twice recently. I decided to buy a new monitor quickly since my current one was over 5 years old. I ordered it Monday and it s delivered Tuesday evening...yes, I paid extra for for that thinking the monitor may die soon.

Yesterday morning there was a windows update...it fixed the issue! LOL I needed a new monitor eventually so I didn't cancel the new one and am very glad I didn't!  :dancebun: :dancebun: :dancebun:

It has a ton of great features. It may take me awhile to figure them all out. The biggest thing is the size!!! My old monitor was 22" and this one is 28". Feels like I have to look back and forth across the room to see from one side of it to the other. LMAO I guess I just have to get used to the new size. And the colors are so amazing and vibrant!!!

Also, everything loads much faster! Including the PC bootup. I think I didn't have the HDMI cable hooked up and that was causing it. Now I have a new 4K HDMI fast cable and even with my 5+ year old PC equipment it is much faster! :)
