My monitor will not stay on. Gateway FPD 1530 15 in.

When I power up my computer the monitor comes on, then it goes black. It will not stay on. If I turn the power off the monitor and turn it back on it shows the desk top for a minute then goes black again. What could be the problem.

    I have a Gateway 710 flat panel monitor. I just had 2 GB ram added to my computer and updated by Adobe Suite programs to CS3. Everything worked fine afterwards, but when I turned it off and came back to it the next day, the screen was faded. I was searching in my Control Panel for monitor adjustments and my screen went black. Now I only get the Microsoft XP startup screen, also faded and then it goes black.

First to check will be the power supply, look for bad caps with bulging tops first then report back so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black

This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

Dell Monitor won't stay on

When it goes black, does the power buton stay green or is it orange? If it's orange, the power supply/inverter is your main culprit. If the power button stays green, it sounds like the backlight for the display is bad. Either way, unless you have parts for the same monitor laying around to swap out, you're due for a new monitor. The good news- with the economy in the tank, you can search online and find some reputable vendors selling nicely sized screens for less than $100! Heck, I've even seen a 22" for $129 (once but it was there).
