Person using computer before me said computer screen shut off and will not come back on. She restarted the computer and still nothing. However, when you push the power button on the screen itself, you will get a brief flash and you can see the long-in box. Any ideas? I've checked the plugs on the back of the screen- all secure.

Re: Monitor shut off and will not come back on
Fmiliair proble, check not the plugs on the screen but the ones on the back of the PC, when the screws are not used the plug sometimes get a little loose and when the monitor gets no signal it will go blanc. However, power lights on monitor should still be visible.

There should be a reset in the menu on the monitor where you would change color, vertica,l etc... it will say reset or reset to factory.....if not try shutting down the computer completely and unplug monitor and pc for a couple minutes then plug back into electrical connection and restart
I'm assuming you mean that you've tested the computer using another monitor and that the desktop proved to be working fine. If that's the case then the monitor needs to see a reputable repair person for repair.
The monitor was broken. I returned it to the vendor for replacement. Your tech did not seem to feel it was a monitor problem and only focused on the video card - although I asked him directly regarding his confidence of it being a videio card problem versus being a monitor problem.
Click start, then then control panel and click on the power management icon. When you see the screen, look at the power management "scheme" and pick the appropriate setting. I assume that what you are experiencing is what's known as "Power management" . In order to achieve an "Energy Star" rating, the computer must shut off various components to conserve power. If you don't want to have your monitor shut down, select never from the options in the Power Management screen. Thanks for using Fixya.com
You are using a screen resolution that is not supported by your monitor. Start the computer in safe mode and open display properties. What ever resolution and color depth is (usually 640x480 and 16 colors), click OK button.
Restart the computer. Go to display properties and increase the color depth to the maximum value. Set the resolution to 800x600. Restart the machine.
Do you see double screens? No? Great! Now try increasing the resolution to the next level. (1024x768). When you click 'apply' you will be give 15 seconds to say it is OK. So if you see double screens, do not click anything. Display will revert to 800x600 resolution (and you will see only a single screen!)
there is a mosfet inside the monitor IRF630 it may short replace it from technical person or replace yourself if you are technical problem will be solved if not then check dry solder correct it otherwise
some boost capacitor may faulty (nearest the yoke coil )replace it
you turned it on and the screen shut off, check the image on the screen by
shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to
the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image,
there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some
of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything
on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If the computer shut down immediately after the monitor shut off, it might be because of fault operating system. Check with another monitor. Thank
Turn on the computer and complete the following steps:
Step 1: Check cable connections
(If you can see the initial HP or Compaq logo screen but later lose the picture, you can skip to Step 2.)
check the video cable connection on the back of the computer and on the monitor. Make sure that it is connected properly and the connecting screws are tight. Turn the monitor off and then back on again (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears.
Some Flat Panel monitors have two similar power input connections placed side-by-side on the back of the monitor, which sometimes allows them to get confused for one another.
One connector is used to supply power to the speakers with a separate power cord, while the other connector is used for the monitor's power adapter.
Ensure that you have the monitor's power adapter cord plugged into the power connector and not the speaker connector.
After you have reconnected the power cord, turn on the monitor (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. If there is still no image, continue to the next Step.
Step 2: Resetting the monitor
At first setup, or under certain signal conditions, the monitor may not be able to switch to a new display resolution. Do NOT shut down or restart the computer. Instead, perform the following steps:
Turn off the monitor using the Power button on the front.
If the Power button does not respond, unplug the power cord from the back of monitor and wait five seconds.
Plug the power cord back in.
You should see the image from the computer on the screen.
