    Hey guys, im having the same problem. The screen turns on fine for about two seconds, then flashes off and reports no signal. I'm thinking something may need replacing inside, but im not to sure. a lot of other users seem to be having this problem, im using a samsung 19" LCD. It's definitly not the computer or gpu stuffing up, it works fine with another screen

Check your monitor cable also check the vga connector, this probly the problem of monitor cable or loose vga connector.

If you are using Onboard vga check your bios settings

If you are using add on vga - check your card and try inserting in another pci slot

if all fail - probbly some hardware problem inside monitor

Good luck

Screen Comes on and goes blank within 3 sec

Look for bad caps (bulging/leaking tops) in the power supply first, it may have taken out the fuse and transistors in the inverter circuits also.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Monitor flashes on then goes black.

I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.
