Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black
When I turn my monitor on, it will stay on for a moment, and then go black. I can turn my screen off, it will come back on, and then go black again HELP
Our starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps shutting off. It comes on for about 5 seconds, then goes black. In order to even shut the computer down, you have to turn it on manually, try to click shutdown, the monitor shuts off, turn on manually again to click shutdown, etc. It is unuseable!

This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.
If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

It sounds like there's a problem with the monitor itself. It may be that the lamp in the computer is dying, which would explain why it keeps going out. Other possibility is that the monitor isn't receiving power properly either through the cable or inside the monitor itself.
If your're not the kind of person who wouldn't mind opening the monitor up and hopping in there, then I recommend you take it somewhere it can be diagnosed like Best Buy.
You're monitor is dying and you need a replacement (Starlogic brand is notorious for dying early and giving poor performance)
You're graphics card is going out. If you have an extra monitor laying around, take out the Starlogic one and plug in the other to see if the same results occur, if not, it's the Starlogic monitor, if the problem still persists, you need a new graphics card or need to update your current drivers.
I can't find a website for StarLogic anywhere, so either they have gone out of business (not likely as there should be some reference to them somewhere) or they are imported from a foreign manufacturer and rebranded with the StarLogic name.
Have you checked the HZ that you are using the monitor in windows ? If set at a very high level (for example 100hz) it may damage the monitor as it is not supporting it. (and maybe this explains the reason for the shutoff as a means to protect the circuitry)
17 inch TFT/LCD Widescreens monitors are ussualy optimal at 1280x800@60Hz.
Right click on Desktop-->Properties-->Settings-->Advanced-->Monitor--> At this point check the Monitor Refresh Frequency.
Check this first and if this does not solve it then we can proceed to more serious hardware troubleshooting.
