Monitor Buzz and keeps shutting off on startup, I turn on and off a bunch of time and reset the monitor. Once it is running it runs fine all day.
My monitor recently started buzzing when I turned it on. Darker display colors seemed to make it louder; if I put something on screen that filled it with white, like a blank page on my browser, it goes almost inaudible.

You may have to reset the PRAM. Note: To print these instructions, open Help Viewer's Action pop-up menu (looks like a gear), then choose Print.
Shut down your Mac.
Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Option, Command (?), P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
Turn on your Mac.
Immediately press and hold the Option-Command-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears. Continue holding the keys down until your Mac restarts, and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
Release the keys.
Resetting PRAM may change some system settings and preferences. Use System Preferences to restore your settings.
First check the monitor sleep mode for your monitor in windows control panel, check that its not going into hibernation/stanby. if thats not it. and the monitor keeps shutting down.

This is probably a video setting issue. In Safe Mode, Windows starts with low resolution and color settings, so the monitor can display them. But when it tries to start normally, Windows is using a video setting the monitor can't handle.
Start the computer and press the F8 key three or four times when the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This should get you to the Windows startup menu screen, and you can pick the option of starting in VGA mode. This will start Windows with video settings any monitor can handle.
Once you have Windows up and running, make sure the video card and monitor types are properly set up. It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your video card. You can usually find them at the manufacturer's website.
Probably the video resolution or the monitor Refresh Rate (eg: 50/60/75 Hertz) is set too high in the operating system, which over-drives the monitor electronics and it is unable to display anything.
If you restart the computer manually (hold in the power button for 5 seconds, the computer will shut off, turn it back on again) you will see the normal BIOS and Windows startup display on the monitor, but then as Windows completes it's startup it returns to the error message you see.
To fix this, restart the computer manually and start the computer in Safe Mode. To do this press F8 just before the computer starts to load Windows, and choose Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode, you should see the monitor working correctly.
Now restart the computer in Normal Mode and everything should be fine.
check your powersaving options in windows>control panel>power options
there is a bunch of options in there that could make your monitor go into power saving mode.
also check your video card options and menu of the monitor itself all could possibly contain a sort of powersafe option.
most likely indicated with amount of minutes untill... either power off screen blank or screen saver.
It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them.
You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers.
Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.
