LCD monitor problem! Help!?

Hey. I have a Viewsonic VX1940W 19 LCD monitor. It has worked fine for last year with my new computer (which I got at the same time).Just recently, when I boot my PC the beginning screen shows very briefly then my monitor just shuts off and goes to black. The light on the monitor still lights up blue like there is no error (error shows orange light).I checked monitor on another computer and it was playing up so it mustn't be my video card or overheating or something else, just the monitor. Also, if I press in my DVI button on the monitor, the screen comes back for just a second but it shows windows loading screen like nothing is wrong, then goes black again.Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.


Did you play with the output settings for your monitor? You might want to try and running it in safe mode and changing the output settings. Not all monitors can use all settings. For example 800x600 is the standard, but if you have a widescreen you might use something like 1600x1200. Try tuning it back down to 800x600 so your monitor will recognize your graphics card output.
