You don't have a short-circuit. That would have blown the protections or even the monitor. Refer to the manual, that flashing light may be a code that tells you the problem. I don't think the repair would be expensive...
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will
blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors
overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You
can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad
parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should
work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and
-connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one
the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair
service for $45 plus shipping. If your problem is not the capacitors
then it would be the backlights and that is much more difficult to
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

To me, that's an XP driver issue. If the screen turns on at all, then goes dark during XP boot, that's nearly a ringer for drivers.
Out of range on the Hz? Tried booting in safe mode to see if it loads with standard win drivers? That might work. Reset the monitor to default/standard settings and try safe mode is what I would do. Ramp up the resolution/refresh rate from there.
