Question Monitor screen suddenly turned white

Jul 13, 2020
Like the title states, I was playing some Siege, when all of the sudden my screen just becomes white. The only audio I could hear was from discord and I don’t think I could hear the in-game audio. I’ve had the monitor for 2 years now it’s an .

I realized that as soon as the monitor has power the screen becomes white. I’ve connected a new older monitor through HDMI and the old monitor displays my screen so I don’t think it’s a graphics card issue. I tried to connect the broken monitor using a HDMI cable rather than the DISPLAY PORT cable that I always use, the screen was still white and nothing happened. I even took the monitor to my brothers room and my monitor was still white even after connecting it to his PC through an Display port cable. I looked it up and I heard smacking the back of it could sometimes fix it, I’ve tried but nothing has worked.

Do you guys think it’s safe to say that the monitor is dead? I can get a new one, but I don’t want to get rid of this one if it may still function. What other tests should I do?

Also Finally, There’s no way my GPU is the issue right? I’m kinda scared because my 2080 was expensive as f***.
