Was using a BenQ GW280T monitor, which I had bought 10 years back around December of 2011. AT the time of writing it is almost 10 years for it. The monitor had been working flawlessly till last month., when it suddenly started taking around 2-3 minutes to show the display. The main power button’s light will flicker on and off till then. 2-3 minutes continued for the next 10 days or so and then then the duration increased to and then approximately around 10 minutes for some 15-20 days.
Took it to the nearest repair shop, who mentioned that the issue was because of the failure of the capacitor. The repair took 1000 rupees (approx 14 USD) and the Monitor was up and running again. So if you are also facing the similar issue, better get it repaired instead of buying a new one.
[Update – 2nd June 2018 – Still can’t see the wifi network, have tried all the option. I think will have to format it. Meanwhile using the below approach]
Few days back I saw that my Lenovo (Windows 10 ) laptop was not showing any WIFI networks.
I tried everything that was suggested out there i.e. update drivers, configuring WLAN Auto Config, Auto Discovery On etc. etc. (except the last resort of formatting the operating system) but none worked.
Interestingly it was showing all the available networks on the lock screen, through which I was finally able to connect.
The other option that could help is, from the command prompt delete the existing profile using the below command
netsh wlan delete profile name=”WifiName”
and create a new wifi connection manually and start it automatically.
I think some of the Windows updates might be the reason for this issue, so still waiting for a newer update that might fix it. Till then at least I have the above workaround.
