    I was using my computer when the screen froze, then the screen went black and the stand by button on the monitor started to blink. I restarted my computer but nothing comes up on the monitor, it remains black. Checked the connections, unpluged the monitor and plugged it back in. It's like it went into hybernation mode and won't come back up.

    it just went black! I tried rebooting - nothing. Checked it on another computer - still black! I get the green and amber power light but nothing on the screen itself - not even ghost images of trying. Did it just up and kick the bucket - it is only a few years old. Help!

Green power light comes on goes off then on again stays solid, moniter says no signal, mouse lights up, and three red lights on key board flash then nothing why?

If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

The power light is flashing green can indicate start/restart of the power supply due to shorts circuits or failing power supply due to bad caps, look for bad caps with bulging top first, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

This usually happens when there is some video resolution conflicts occurs. Try to start windows in safe mode and then making a lowest resolution applied.
If you are unable to start windows. Try removing its data cable from cpu. and check whether there is any display on the screen.
