M710q - monitor flickers and pops

2018-04-26, 17:49 PM

I seem to be running in to this a bit moe as with these systems and same Viewsoinc monitor.  In the past i have had a few issues with other Tiny's and dual monitor setups that needed a power supply swap to drive the second screen.  This one i have about 5 systems now with the same viewsonic monitors, mostly dual but some single, where the monitor makes a POP sound and flickers.  Anyone else seen this?  Its kind fo my standard so i dont have another monitor to try or spare power supplies.  Drivers, etc all been done.  Win10 on all, 1709 and using displayport ened to end. We dont have support upgrades so i am not sure where we can go with Lenovo here.

Other Tiny owner has opined that it could be a static electricity issue.  Do the problematic locations have drier air and carpet?  I wonder if a grounding (or earthing) mat under the keyboard, or grounded mouse pad, and touched first would help.

Are the same DP cables used everywhere?  Do you know the brand, or whether they are DP certified?

Might be worth contacting Startech, and trying a different cable:  Problem with Display port connection "blinking" monitor to a black screen and then back to normal
