The nx5000 has a notorious problem for the monitor going out, sometimes it flickers and sometimes it just doesn't show anything at all. the problem is often easily fixable in less then 20 minutes.
the cable that connects the computer to the monitor comes unplugged on the back of the monitor.
you will need to disassemble the monitor to do this fix, don't worry it is easy.
get a Phillips screw driver and a small flat screwdriver and use the flat to pry off the 5 round rubber plugs on the front of the monitor.
next use the Phillips to remove the 5 screws.
next use the Phillips to remove the 4 screws on the edge of the screen.
next using caution pry pull or rip the inside bezel off from around the screen, there is double sided tape holding it to the screen. careful not to break or disfigure it.
once you get this off there is 4 screws into each hinge at the bottom of the screen. remove those.
now the outside cover will be completely lose and dangling by the wi-fi antenna cable.
now the connector on the back of the monitor is exposed and in many cases it looks like its is only half plugged in, plug it in all the way until it is even and turn the computer on, see if this fixes your problem.
you may put a piece of tape to help hold it in but i doubt it would really help.
reassemble in reverse order, be careful to route the wi-fi cables through the little opening or they will be pinched and your wi-fi will no longer work.
it may not happen again for years or ever, it is possible that some joker working at hp was lazy and left hundreds of these only half plugged in, or did it intentionally.

Hope this helps.
