Asus z92m laptop doen't startup anymore, no bios screen, just green light on for a second, dvd clicks and runs

Did anything happen recently? If you have an external monitor, plug it into the vga port and see if you get a display on bootup. Does the computer stay on or does it shut itself off right away?

When I turn on my monitor, it briefly displays the image, but then turn to black

This usually means the backlight has failed and it is not cost effective to repair. Some monitors with a faulty power supply will exhibit this fault too. If the power supply is external (a little DC "brick") Try and find a replacement with equal voltage and similar (preferrably more) current rating (e.g. 12VDC, 3 Amp). This can be a cheap fix - especially if you have a spare power supply lying around. Often many different monitors can use the same power supply, so if you have another dead one, or know someone with one, you can try that - the connector will even most likely be the same.

It does that when attached to another PC also?
Otherwise it may have lamps or caps problem as shown here:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.

When i turn the notebook on i can see nothing blank black screen

Sounds like one of two issues,

1. You have the internal display turned off. When you turn the laptop on you should hear a single beep. Do you see the Sony Logo during bootup? Have you tried to turn the display back on? Try pressing the Fn+F7, or Fn+F8, key combination. There are only three modes and these key combinations allow you to cycle through these modes. Either the Primary Screen is on, or the External Screen is on, or both are on.

2. You may have a bad video card or the screen is dead. When you power up the laptop, can you see a glow, but the screen is black? Can you see the Bootup Screen with the Sony Logo, but barely? Have you tried to connect an external monitor to the laptop to see if the video card is working? If you get video to the external monitor, the video card is working. If you don't, then the video card may be bad. If you are getting video on the external monitor, try using the key combinations listed above and try to cycle through your Internal/External display modes.If nothing shows up on the laptop display then the LCD screen may be bad. It could be the back light. Those are internal to the LCD. That means you will have to replace the entire LCD display on the laptop.

Hope that helps.

Display skcrin black but LED not blinking

First, connect this monitor to another computer, if you still do not get a Windows image on the Samsung LCD monitor then it is faulty. The fault could be a faulty inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp.
Parts for this monitor could be avaiable from LCD Parts, theie WEB site is :-

a possible virus must be on your system, the best solution is to reformat the unit & install again your system.
