I have a HP Pavilion 23xi IPS LED Backlit Monitor that is flickering and then getting very dark. No problem until today and not sure what happened. I checked and it says the Nvidia Geforce 630 Drivers are updated and working properly/
Resolution is set to the recommended (1920x1080). I need help fixing

I also disconnected the monitor and rebooted PC (also and HP and using windows 7) a couple of times. No change.
This is one of 2 monitors on my PC (#1 monitor)

It is connected with an hdmi cable

Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.com I am Serge and I will try my best to assist you.

When was the last time Nvidia drivers were updated?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
i checked earlier today when I was troubleshooting

Have you tried swapping cables between monitors to make sure issue is only with the monitor and not the actual hdmi port on video card?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
no I haven't tried that. if i do that I will lose connection with you. maybe i can do that and keep this conversation on my tablet/ipad?

that will only turn off monitors, not the connection.

is this happening all the time with the monitor now?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
it is happening all this time as of his morning

How old is the monitor?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
maybe 4 or 5 years
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
my other monitor (maybe 2 yrs old) is not HDMI connected. I forget what that one is called but has pins
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
should i try to swap them?

you can try, but that will pinpoint to the monitor with the issue

It seems like a common issue with this model of the monitor. Since there is no warranty , and cost to replace parts and shipping could run as high as cost of new monitor - i would say buy a new one.

here are links to forums where people had same issues with this model:

no "fix" with this issue?

The fix is to replace power board on it. But like I mentioned - the cost could be as high as price of a new monitor

here is link to new monitor on Amazon, : http://amzn.to/2xTNZEp
