Re: Blank Screen Now.
Backlight is torched, it happens without warning. These can be repaired, but finding the appropriate backlights, and trying to get this thing apart is a royal pain in the you know what! But your backlight has burned out! Sorry!

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.
This issue could be either the Monitor inverter failing or it could be your Video card. If you have another computer available, plug the monitor into a different computer and see if you get the same behavior, if you do, then the monitor is failing and needs to be replaced. If on a different computer it works fine, then you may have a video card failing. Does it seem to happen the longer the monitor is on? Could be as it heats up, it starts to fail.
This looks like a problem with the video card or the power supply to the monitor. Try connecting a different monitor and if you still face the same problem then probably you may need to have a look at your video card or its connection in motherboard
Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)
Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen
display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer
using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the

If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to
display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a
the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in
the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to
find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily
use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
Turn on the computer and press the
key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.

The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click
on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the
screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way
it was before. Try another setting until you find a display
configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
the native resolution is not available, download and install updated
video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver
software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has
video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What
the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is
likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the
original computer to another monitor that works to update its video
If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
Try changing the resolution of the screen. Right click on an empty area of the desktop and select properties. Now choose the Settings tab and try adjusting the slider for resolution and click on APPLY. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and will show up in the new resolution. If you find it satisfactory, click OK to keep it, or click NO to go back and try a different resolution.
