Do not exceed your monitor's max resolution.
Resolution is determined the following way:

SOURCE: Screen keeps going black
you may need to change the video output to output 1 in your pcs monitor settings - if you have 2 outputs from pc, swap cable over and select identify monitor. the default for the monitor should be 1( a huge 1 over the display appears)

Go To Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Select "restore my computer to an earlier date". Look at the LIST of Restore points. Find the DATE when this "Security Update" was installed and Select the last date before it was installed and Follow the "Wizard" to Restore it to BEFORE the Update you think CHanged Things. Too many variables to figure out without seeing it to determine what was changed but that will correct the situation and you will not loose anything.

You need to try it on another PC, alos verify if the VGA cable is good. If nothing change, then you need to open it up, first thing to look for are the capacitors in the power supply. Look for cpas with bulging top/seal, see example of failed monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you find so we can guide you further.
