It appears that you are losing the video connection between your computer and the the monitor. Remove the conector from the video card and reconnect it again, make sure the connector is firmly secure. If the problem still persists you could have a faulty video card and it needs to be replaced.

If the video card is built in on the motherboard, you still need to purchase a new video card (buy a AGP graphics card), insert into the AGP slot of your computer, you may need to disable the onboard graphics card - go into the BIOS to do this, and you need to install the new graphics card driver.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

When pc left on after 15 minutes the screen keeps changing colours from reds /greens /greys/blues constantly is this normal


Maybe this is a Screen Saver, set to start after 15 minutes. Open up Control Panel then Appearance and Personalization, then Screen Saver to check on this and perhaps choose a more pleasant screen saver.

Stuck in power saver


Try the unlock procedure: With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets. If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages? Is the power indicator light on? If so, what color is it? Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\ If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it? If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting. Good luck... And let me know. Bill
