Re: monitor clinks off and on(black screen)

I would start up in safe mode, and disable that driver. It sounds like it is a bad driver on your new pc. Then turn off the pc, hook up your new monitor and start up fresh. Your pc should automatically find the best compatible driver for you. If this won't do, can you please list the driver you did use? Maybe we can search for another one that would be compatible with your model monitor.

My acer flat screen monitor thats brand new keeps going black on me

It sounds like the inverter is on the way out and hence the black screen. It needs that unit replaced. However if it was mine and new I would insist on a replacement monitor.

You have a power supply problem - 99% certainty here, as I am using a flatron monitor which had the same problem when I got it. There have been many solutions posted here regarding flat screen monitor power supply repair, which is a problem common to the monitor class, not just the brand (I also use an HP and an Acer which I repaired for the same problem). I refer you to a recent solution posted by FixYa guru budmrtn:
His solution provides links to a wealth of photos and knowledge. I have reviewed his documentation and can find no fault in it.

My HP vs 19 desktop monitor is on, but the screen is blank. It flashes on for less than a second when I turn the monitor off, and then back on -- but then goes blank. What is the solution?

If you are handy at fixing things.

Here is a link of how to fix your monitor. I had the same problem, and found this link, followed the instructions and it cost me $5.13

Don't drag out your soldering gun these are too high wattage and will melt the board. Use a 40 to 25 watt soldering iron.

Monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
