Hi, you can try this; in a clear area of the Desktop screen (right)) click, once the desktop window open, click on Personalize, next click on Display Settings. You can adjust the brightness by by doing the following: On the resolution scale adjust from Low>High; you can do this until you are satisfied with the view. In the (Colors) drop box, click the down (Arrow), and choose the "Highest" color (16bits>32bits) etc. Next click to open the (Advance)) settings, click on the (List All Modes) button, once the window open choose the (Highest) settings: example (1366 by 768, True Color (32bit), 60 Hertz.

Hi frnd.. there is a test known as Monitor self test to perform this just power on the monitor and unplug the flex cable.. U will see a logo bouncing up and down.. if this happens then it means the monitor is fine...
The monitor was broken. I returned it to the vendor for replacement. Your tech did not seem to feel it was a monitor problem and only focused on the video card - although I asked him directly regarding his confidence of it being a videio card problem versus being a monitor problem.
The inverter board was made using lead free solder.... thank the Europeans for that. The larger components develop cracks on their solder joints after a few months of on time. Remove the inverter board. Use 15x magnification or better in bright light and you'll see the cracks on the ends of the large resistors. Apply fresh solder and you'll be good to go. You might run into resistors where you solder one end and they lift up... that means joints on both sides went bad. Son't kow how many more fixya's I'll answer w/o free access to the other responders?
I had the same problem. Your monitor is warning you of failure. The hissing sound is the picture tube powering up. The momentary blank screen is when the power supply for the monitor has become hot. Your monitor is getting ready to quit. My suggestion is to buy a new monitor. To have a tech repair it would be more expensive then buying a new one.
CRT and LCD will look different when compared side by side. Is your CRT calibrated, or are they right in the sense that they are what you are used to?
Anyway, you can adjust the colors and light levels from the menu on your screen, and depending on your operating system and graphics adapter you should be able to make adjustments there, too. For windows XP, right click your desktop and select properties->Settings->Advanced. There might be a color management tab.
Also, there might be software to help you do this already installed. Look for a program group with the name of your Graphics adapter manufacturer. Very often ATI or nVidia.
