You may need to blow the dust out of the back of the monitor or get a new rebuilt monitor. They run about $30 at shops that rebuild them. Usually good will stores have computer stores attached to some of them. The computer store in Omaha is Called good bytes.
Does your monitor go black because it went to sleep, does it turn off? Do you have any lights on the monitor to indicate what it is doing?
Also I would boot into safe made by rebooting the computer & tapping F8 when the bios appears. You should be prompted with several options, one of which is "Safe Mode". Choose this & report how the monitor behaves.
Hi, The Monitor as well the Computer have "Power Saving Modes," [Sleep, ScreenSavers, and Hibernation]; so what you want to do is "Change the way the Computer / Monitor Sleeps!" From the Desktop Screen, click on the "Start Button," next in the [Start Search Window], type: power. In the next [window] that opens, you should see, from your point of view; a "list" in the (left column) "Change when the computer sleep, the wording may be different, but it will be clear enough. Now all you have to do is change the way the Computer and Monitor "Sleep, or Turn-off." If the Monitor have its own "settings;" just find them by the [button on the monitor], and do the same thing as above; but I'm sure the computer will take care of both. If this solution to the problem was of help? Let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating", thanks, and have a "Great Memorial Day!"
I stoped the monitor from sleeping by going into the montitor's menu, management, then sleep. Turn on the never allow to sleep mode. We were having some of your mentioned issues with the icons and with the monitor not waking up. This fixed that. Now the computer will go to sleep and when started the monitor comes on instantly.

You have a power supply going out in the monitor. You can check out some pictures on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm If you can solder then you should be able to repair your monitor. Open the back of your monitor and look for the bad capacitors( the little aluminum parts with the tops popped open as seen in the pictures). Unsolder all the ones with the bulging tops and replace them with new caps. If you have questions just email me. If you don't want to do the repair yourself then we orrer a repair service, contact me for more info.
Welcome to FixYa! The default power saving feature is turning the monitor off. To change the settings go to the Desktop>Right click on it>Properties>Settings and you will see power saving settings where you can choose "Never turn off" or a longer time interval. These settings can also be found in your Control Panel for all of the Power Saving features for the computer, monitor and hard drive. Steve
