I think you are experiencing something that happens a lot when you change monitors, possibly 'downsizing'? Your graphics settings on your actual PC were set too high for the new, smaller flat-screen, so what you'll have to do is hook it back up to another monitor, even an older CRT-style one, and then do the following steps before hooking it back up to your new 14" LCD:
  1. boot into Windows as usual, but on an older, perhaps larger monitor
  2. right-click on any empty area on your desktop, then left-click on 'Properties' at the bottom of the little pull-down menu that pops up
  3. when 'Display Properties' window comes up, click on the very last tab to the right, labelled ''Settings'
  4. find the 'Screen Resolution' slider bar about two-thirds the way down that window, and adjust the slider control to a more standardized, universal setting, like '800x600', or even '1024x786'. Either of those should work with your new LCD flatscreen.
  5. make sure you click 'OK' on that window, then 'Shut Down' Windows properly (using the Start button, and all that)
  6. disconnect your old monitor, and hook your new one back up. It should work!
This happens a lot. I build HTPCs, so it's even worse the more 'options' you have, believe me.
Hope this helps!

Monitor goes blank.

Did you swap the monitors to see if the problem follows or stays at the same video output port since you have dual monitors set up? Need verify before opening up the monitor.

Monitor comes on shows a screen and then the power buttom begins to blink every 2 seconds and a black screen on the monitor remains blank

Try starting your computer in safe mode ( tap F8 while it boots up). If this works then you have probably got it set to the wrong resolution. Set it to the correct resolution (google the name of your monitor to find it's maximum resolution, or just set it to something low like 800x600 or 1024x768) by right-clicking on an empty bit of desktop and selecting the video settings or control panel for your video card.

If this does not work and you have checked your cables and your video card, then I would suggest you have a faulty monitor.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle

1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

DVDs do not play on LCD monitor

If you see the dvd on the laptop and not the monitor:
Your problem is probably with your video card and its settings and not the monitor.
Some video cards wont support dvd playback on two screens at once.
What you have to try is to enable only the external monitor and disable the laptop lcd.
This can be done using shortcut keys on the laptop (usually this involves using the Fn key and one of the F# keys at the same time- the F# key may have a picture of two screens on it or be labeled CRT-LCD)
You can also change the settings in the display properties settings.

Sometimes the display settings as far as resolution are set too high for some dvd players. Lowering the resolution can take care of that problem.

LCD monitor goes blank

It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)

If your TV is a higher quality set that is HD capable, the problem may be in using RCA jacks. I suggest buying some component video cables. Some higher quality DVD players and TVs do not respond well to cheaper video feed wires. The only other option is a problem with the DVD player since the picture is coming through fine through other DVD sets. Try the wires first, its your cheapest option.

Screens works for 5 mins then goes blank!!!!!

It could also be that the video card is not compatible with this monitor. After the pc boots up, can you get into windows? Does the monitor always go out at a specific time on boot? Say for example; you boot the pc, windows startup splash screen comes on; screen does a quick flash and goes blank. Then it maybe the BIOS setting for the video. Try changing the IRQ setting. You could also try putting the video card in another slot. Do you have the manual for the motherboard? Ray
