Try to clean your memory using pen or pencil eraser..
and if the problem stay the same, try to use another monitor.

First: Make sure the monitor is plugged in and turned on.

Second. Unplug it from the video card, it should say "No Signal" or something to that effect.

Third: Try pressing the menu key on the monitor, to see if you can get anything from that.

Fourth: Try a different monitor.

If the different monitor works, then the original monitor is probably bad. replace it.

Best guess is the monitor is bad. Try replacing the monitor first.

WHY IS THE GREEEN POWER BUTTON FLASHING ON MY MONITER AND THE SCREEN THEN GOWS BLACK


When the power light is flashing the monitor is not getting a stable signal. This is hard to answer without direct troubleshooting. Check the cables first, make sure they are connected securely. If you still have problems test another monitor you know works or move monitor to a computer you know works, this will determine if the monitor is the problem or not and tell you if it is your "graphics port or adapter". If another monitor works fine, use the working cables to test the "broken" monitor. If you have an "all-in-one" computer, ignore the above steps and use a start-up repair disk. The reason this is hard to troubleshoot is there are so many things to diagnose. More than likely your "graphics card" is failing. These are some tricks to repair. You can update the driver, buy a graphic card separate from the stock port.

Monitor screen stays blank


HP desktop computer? Change the monitor cable. The cable from the monitor to the computer, may be bad.
Happens.

If this doesn't solve it then I suggest the GPU is bad. Graphics Processing Unit. If you have Integrated Graphics, (Also referred to as 'On-Board'), then I suggest buying an average, inexpensive graphics card, and installing it.
You'll have to see what expansion slot, your computer uses for graphics. It may be a PCI slot, or an AGP slot, or a PCI Express x16 slot.

Clear as mud on that last one? Let me give you some links, that might help clear up what an Expansion slot is, and the three types of expansion slots used for a graphics card.
1.Expansion slot:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_slot
2.PCI (local bus):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_(bus)
3.AGP:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP
4.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
5.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Asus_a8n_VMCSM02.jpg
The link above (No.5) shows a photo of an average motherboard. At the top right you will see two White slots. Those are PCI expansion slots.
Below the PCI slots is a PCI Express x16 slot. It is Black in color.

Make sure you don't have two video cards on your machine and have plugged into the wrong one.
Failing that, open the case and make sure the card is plugged firmly in its slot (do this with the power off).

Screen not lighting up and staying black.


if the green light is always on that means there is no prob concerning the power and the monitor itself. the problem seems to be coming from your graphic card..
try with another graphic card..

OR
you might not configure the screen resolution to the appropriate level..
can you run your pc correctly in safe mode??
