The monitor comes on each time but then goes dark after a few seconds


i think u r using window 7 or vista.
this happens when ur system is infected by virus.
so, you may try this trick....

Note:- If you have multiple user accounts or your account is password protected then start from Step-1 else skip Step-1 and Directly follow step-2 instructon

***** Step-1 ****
press ::
ctrl + shift + esc
or
ctrl +alt+ delele

then you will see a screen containing some menu such as "Start Task Manger", "Switch User" etc....
if u have ur account password protected... then select "Switch user"...Enter password and press enter..

if again screen become black,,,
then do step 2

***** Step-2 ****
press ::
ctrl + shift + esc
or
ctrl +alt+ delele

select "Start Task manager". then do this: File>New Task(Run..)
Type this coomand:

explorer.exe

Now u can back up your important data and files.
Install new windows operating system if Anti virus fails to Detect the virus and fails to repair the system.
