Can you supply any more information?

All I can suggest with the information provided is to check that the monitor is plugged in and switched on and that the monitor is plugged into the computer with a VGA cable (try to avoid using a VGA-DVI cable adapter until you know everything works).

Once power on the monitor after 20 seconds power off how iam rectifed


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

CAN'T POWER UP NEW COMPUTER


Do any lights/LEDs glow when the unit is plugged in? If not, you could have a bad charger or battery, If you do see blinking or glowing lights when plugged in, but no display (and you are sure the on/off switch is in the on position) try hooking up an external monitor to see if the built in screen is faulty or even deselected from use. It is possible, if you do in fact have power, that a bios message cannot be displayed on the built in screen.

Monitor going to sleep


This problem could be that your Power Options in the Control Panel have been switched to "switch off the component ever now and then to save power". To change this, do the following:

1) Navigate to the Control Panel and double click on Power Options.

2) This will display the Power Options window.

3) Once opened under Power schemes select the one that best suites your system.

4) Then you can select whether or not to switch off your monitor and/or hardrives after a period of time when it is not being used.

If your problem persists then it might just be as simple as a loose connection, make sure your monitor display plug is correctly plugged into your display card or onbaord display correctly.
