My monitor makes my images unproportional. If I draw a 6'x6" circle it looks oval. When I change the screen resolution to less everthing is too large and it still makes my objects look off.

Have you changed the default screen resolution.
Flat screen monitors are meant to work only on the default resolution. If you change it, then you can get problems like you are having

Monitor blinks the log on screen and then goes black

If possible you should try and connect the monitor to a different computer and see if you experience the same issue (or connect a different monitor to your computer and see if the same issue occurs). Sometimes the issue is with the graphics card not pushing the signal strength with enough power to keep the image on. If it is indeed the monitor that is bad, I would suggest buying a new one unless the monitor is still under warranty. You can get a decent size monitor from $150-300 and there are plenty of great deals out right now.
