Go into the Catalyst Control Center and check "reduce DVI frequency on high-res displays" and leave "Alternate DVI operational mode" checked. This should resolve it. It is because of your video card that this problem is occurring. Let me know if you need additional help or if this doesn't fix your problem. Good Luck.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

if you look closely can you see a very dark image on the screen? your problem is usually the result of the backlight on its way out, these are very hard to replace so you will need to take it to a profesional, in most cases it is cheeper to buy a new screen.

Monitor problem


You need to figure out if the monitor is faulty or if it is due to the power in your house (not likely) or the fault of the computer.
  1. Try the monitor on other power jacks.
  2. Try the computer on other monitors and see if you get the same response.
If it seems to just be the monitor then you will most likely have to have it serviced or replaced. Is it still under warranty?

Phillips 170b monitor not working


Exactly the same problem here. Phillips 170B Monitor about two years old. Lights up for no more than 2 seconds then goes blank. Switch on/off and exactly the same thing. I suspect than the screen goes really dim rather than switching off because sometimes I can see the screen image very faintly.

Monitor problem: screen goes black, then comes in scrambled


It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section. One or more backlights may be going out, too.
