2 days ago I turned off my computer and my monitor was working fine when I turned it off too. When I turned it on this morning half of my monitor was dim and the other was twice as dim as the other half. I have gone through sever computer resets and auto adjusts on the monitor as well as attemtping to fix it through control panel but have met with negative results.

Re: half a monitor
This could be a backlight problem- Dont know about a fix though I guess some one may repair them[new tube[s]] I guess what ever the labour plus parts will be well on the way to a new one. How old is it by the way - any warranty left?

Reboot pc until you have a picture, then try updating the drivers for the monitor and your gpu if applicable, outdated drivers can cause erratic and intermittent behavior. Navigation to drivers access varies slightly based on operating system.
The monitor can be repaired - by replacing one or both the fluorescent tube and inverter. You can have the work done for you - or you can attempt it yourself. Lamp prices vary based on size - but most hover in the $10 range. Inverters can vary in price too - but run more than lamps for the most part. There are numerous suppliers for these parts such as this and instructions about how to do it such as this.
Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.
I'm not sure if this will solve the problem but it is worth a shot. I have a 19" Proview that does the same thing only in green. I finally chased the problem to the VGA cable. When I move the cable around at the back of the computer, it straightens out and works fine. If your monitor has a changeable VGA cable try that. If it is like mine where it has a fixed VGA cable, you might be able to have someone replace the cable. If that does not solve the problem, it is probably the inverter board or something inside the unit.
Same thing is happening with my emchine as well. Mine is a T6412 series machine. I boought this machine a year and a half ago. Suddenly one morning the monitor started flickering. At first I thought may be some problem with the cables. I tried with different cables. Same problem. then I thought maybe my monitor has gone bad. So I went and bought a new Samsung monitor. Even with this new monitor the problem remained. So, I am assumng now that the problem is with my computer and not the monitor. Can someone please help. I do not usually come to this site. Can you please email me your solutions and help directly to email@example.com. Thank you so much for your help.
