It is your monitor video cable. Check that is well plugged, if its well plugged and you still get the problem, then probably the cable is faulty.

Please read below if you decide to DIY:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

When I go to my desktop after a minute or two the entire screen goes white, how do I fix it?

This sounds like a power save issue or a screen saver problem and they are both on the same panel I will lead you to

Right click on an EMPTY part of the desktop then click properties
Click the screensaver tab then the POWER settings.

Make sure all the boxes say NEVER then APPLY.

Its up to you if you want it to ask for a password when it comes off the screensaver (my pref is for no) then click apply then ok.

When you are back at the screensaver tab change both the screensaver to one of the other windows defaults and also check how long before it goes to screensaver and maybe up that to at least 15 minutes unless you have a plasma screen in which case no more than 5 minutes.

you may need to click apply again then OK

now sit back and wait. and whilst you do that check the manual and controls for the monitor in case it too has a built in saver and if so make any changes you need there.

When i turn the computer on the screen has a auto/set and at times it can turns on or see windows and it turns off why?

Do you mean the screensaver? You can remove it by Rightclicking on the Desktop, and then click Properties. On the screensaver tab, Click on the drop-down and choose None. Click Apply and then OK.

Hope this helps.

Monitor picture turns on its side when it goes to screensaver

Sounds like your screensaver is using a picture of your desktop in it's code intentionally.

Right click on a blank area of your desktop --> select properties

--> click screensaver --> change it to "none" or another screensaver

Screensaver will not come on

Try connecting another moniter, and see if you still have the same problem. If you still have the problem with the other moniter its most likely your OS
