Check your refresh rate in your settings.If it is too low the monitor will go black.I upped mine to 75 and have had no more probs.

Check the power cord where it goes into the monitor and make sure it is tight. When it turns off, if the power light is still on check that you are not getting message "No Imput"; it may be the serial connection on the back of the monitor or the back of your pc. Usually if this is the case the power light will be yellow, not green or will blink. Acer and Planar brand monitors are known for issues ranging from this problem to going completely black even when power light is green. If its under warranty, return it if trouble shooting doesn't work.

    Worth a shot. Had issues with IBM NetVista pc motherboards being bad, pc would actually be what was rebooting itself and not the monitor. I had a lot of clients reporting monitor issue when it was the cpu. Never saw on Dell, Hp, etc. unless processor was overheating. If the cpu isn't restarting and its only the monitor turning on and off, then I can't think of what may be causing it if you tried the connections and they are OK. Unlikely the video card is bad. Sorry can't be more help.

This is a problem with the power supply unit inside the monitor, there is no easy way out here. If you keep on using your monitor like this eventually it won't switch on no matter how long you wait. Keep on using it like this for the time being without switching off anything but ultimately you will have to take it in for repairs or otherwise purchase a new screen..
