Try connecting another monitor first, but seem to be related to your video card.
Check the video card on your computer.

From your description you have a power supply problem, usually caused by defective capacitors, sometimes they will bulge at the top indicating an open condition. If you decide to repair check the inverter board that powers the back lights behind the screen, because they are also prone to bad caps.

This could be that the screen topback light or bottom back light is bad or the inverter.
the topback or bottom back light could also be seing as the flouricent of the screen that light up the screen to enable display visible.This top back light or botom back light as the name implies is positioned at the top and bottom side of the screen.It takes an expertize knowledge for one to be able to change the flouricent when comfirms bad.The same is applicable with Inverter.

Screen trys to show desktop, but quickly fades to


Hello,

Since the power led button is on, the problem with your monitor is the that the picture board of your monitor has develop fault, that is why it tries to show your desktop and quickly fades away.

The picture board of your monitor is bad and will need to be replaced in other for it to display.

The best thing for you to do is to take your monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of your picture board because the fault is not something you can fix on your own in other not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Monitor goes blank after 3 seconds -Samsung SyncMaster 920NW


Could be a power issue. If it doesn't show anything at all then that may be the case. It may also be the display itself. It would be a costly repair so you might be better off finding a new monitor.

Monitor turns off after about 3-5 seconds


I would say your monitor is bad if you have tried it on 2 different monitors and it does the same on both. Check your warranty expiration date, some monitors have 2 or 3 years warranty. If it's still under warranty, you may be able to have it replaced or repaired.

Monitor fades and turns blue


this sounds like a transistor issue concerning the ccfl lamps the power transistors are deteriorating and they will eventually go bad you can have them replaced and that should fix the issue. otherwise I would say have the capacitors that feed the ccfl's may be getting old and need replacement as well, its not something the average customer will want to do but if you have a service center that does electronic repair then that would be bst.
Hope this helps
