The entire Thinkvision series of monitors have been plagued by capacitors on the power supply board failing.
This sounds worse then it is. For the most part they only fail well after their warranty period, so it's not a design flaw, just old age.
The repair should not cost alot and would be worth a trip to your local computer/TV repair man.
Hope that helps =)

Actually you don't want to use the LCD speakers. They are so small and sound worse than a transistor radio.
But if you insist. You will need a dual 1/8" male stereo cable approx 6' (2m) long. Running from AUDIO OUT of the computer to the back of the LCD. If in the U.S. you can get it at Radio Shack or Dollar Tree.

Sounds like the LCD monitor is not getting a proper input signal. Check your cables between the computer and monitor. Replace them if need. Also check the pins and make sure that none are bent or disfigured.
Try a replacment monitor from a family member or friend. If their monitor works ok.....then your due for a replacment. The are very little user servicable parts inside.

I would try it with other PC, if it is still doing the same thing and you want to DIY repair, then please read below.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 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.
