Close windows down. Wait 15 - 20 mins, then power monitor up but NOT windows. Screeen should say "NO SIGNAL in centre. If t does not, wait five mins If still no display shut down and wait another 5 mins. Then start monitor un ANDt windows.. All should be OK now, If not shut EVERYTHING down and disconnect from mains ovrernight. (PC riouter/modem,,,, EVERYTHING . 12 hours later, re-connetc in THIS order - 1.) MONITOR 2.) PC 3) ROUTER/MODEM Should be OK now.
Does the monitor do this with other machines? If no or unsure, do the following and see if the problem persists
1. click Start2. Click Control Panel 3. In Classic View, find the Power Options Icon and Double Click. In Category View, click the Performance And Maintenance and then click on Power Options. 4. Under the Power Schemes Tab, click the drop down box next to "Turn off monitor" and change the time. 5. Click Apply/Ok
Very typical of View Sonic. Sounds like a back backlight or inverter. I would go to www.viewsonic.com and open up a RMA. Most view sonic screens have a 3 year warranty. They will repair at no cost ..(if it is within that period) There is a date code on the back of the screen that will help you validate the above information.
More likely to be bad capacitors (bulging/leaking) in the power supply/inverter board just like these Viewsonic here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The same thing happened to me today. I was just sitting in my room then i hear a click and the cpu is on it stays on for a while then cuts off. It then cuts on and off with few seconds in between. It then stays in that way cutting and off for about a minite or two and then cuts off completely. A few minutes later it starts again. Also in the time it its off it will not turn on by pressing the power button. Sometimes it completly boots up by itself and then shuts itself down. If I shut it down manually while its on it'll turn itself on immeditaly after. What's going on! Will the warranty cover it? Do I need a new computer?
From what you are describing this is not a monitor issue. If the monitor were dying you'd see faults in the images, dead pixels, or random poweroffs. Loading windows slowly has nothing to do with your monitor. It is likely that you have picked up some sort of virus, spyware or malware that is slowing your system down. Have you installed any toolbars in your web browser lately? Those are notorious for ruining PC performance.
Your Computer may have not configured the Monitor properly, to check, go to Start menu and Right click My Computer and select Manage then when Computer Manager is open go to Device Manager and find your Monitor and check if that device is working properly (right click on Monitor and go to Properties).
Hope I helped
Hi; I had the same problem. I know that sometimes devices require you to perform some type of '10-30 second' "hold" of one or some of its buttons in order to 'reset' the device, so to speak. So, having said that, try this:
1) Turn your monitor off (no green light) but leave it plugged in. 2) Leave it off for about 10 seconds. 3) Hold the  button on your monitor (the one to the immediate LEFT of your monitor's POWER button). 4) While holding the  button, now press and HOLD your POWER button. 5) Wait for your image to appear and STAY onscreen for about 5 seconds, then release both buttons. 6) Your monitor should retain its onscreen image.
