Re: compaq 1701 flat panel monitor
You have a bad set of capacitors on the power board. If you have little to no electrical knowledge then I can't advise strongly enough to take it to your local TV repair shop.
The repair is not expensive and will save your life and your sanity.

The screen resolution and bit color is controlled by the video driver NOT by a driver for the monitor. Install the correct video driver for your video card and you will be able to increase the screen resolution to over 1024 X 768 and bit color to at least 32 bits.
Could be video card, cable or malfunction in the monitor, try another monitor to eliminate at least the possibility of it being a graphics card issue, thereafter, check connections from the computer to the monitor, if that fails, I'd suggest taking to a TV repairman
Unplugging the power cord repeatedly is not a good idea! I hope this helps:
1- After you get a picture, go to "Device manager" (Click on Start-Programs-settings-device manager) and make sure that there is not question or an exclamation mark next to Monitors. If that is the case you might need to reinstall the driver!
2- Make sure that your video card is not faulty by hooking up a different monitor and see if it is working ok. If you still have the same problem, then you need to replace the video card.
3- Check all cables and power cords and make sure that there's good connectivity on all ends (before powering up the machine) and that there are no nicks or cuts. If possible try replacing the monitor's data cable as well.
The fluorescent lamp has failed.
The LCD monitor has a "backlight" in order to illuminate the video images that you see.
It may be too costly to repair, since it may break again after repair.
New LCD monitors start at just under $100.
Quick fix, if you are brave:
With an open palm (not the PDA), whack the side of the monitor gently or not so gently to see if it works.
If so, you can either replace the monitor or put up with a sore palm.
Yes it is possible to get the product from HP(as now compaq is owned by HP).
The part number of the product is 259055-001.
You can ask for this product from HP by calling them at 1-800-227-8164. They may also give you a better alternative part number for the power cord. But according to me this particular part would be best for you monitor(259055-001).
You can also buy this product online from hp.com.
Yes in fact you can use sony pc tower to display on this monitor.
Turn on the computer and complete the following steps:
Step 1: Check cable connections
(If you can see the initial HP or Compaq logo screen but later lose the picture, you can skip to Step 2.)
check the video cable connection on the back of the computer and on the monitor. Make sure that it is connected properly and the connecting screws are tight. Turn the monitor off and then back on again (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears.
Some Flat Panel monitors have two similar power input connections placed side-by-side on the back of the monitor, which sometimes allows them to get confused for one another.
One connector is used to supply power to the speakers with a separate power cord, while the other connector is used for the monitor's power adapter.
Ensure that you have the monitor's power adapter cord plugged into the power connector and not the speaker connector.
After you have reconnected the power cord, turn on the monitor (while the computer is on) to see if an image appears. If there is still no image, continue to the next Step.
Step 2: Resetting the monitor
At first setup, or under certain signal conditions, the monitor may not be able to switch to a new display resolution. Do NOT shut down or restart the computer. Instead, perform the following steps:
Turn off the monitor using the Power button on the front.
If the Power button does not respond, unplug the power cord from the back of monitor and wait five seconds.
Plug the power cord back in.
You should see the image from the computer on the screen.
