There are 2 possibilities, the second is 99% more likely though.

#1 The cable between the onboard video card and the LCD panel has come loose at one end. Push it back into place and try again. (this is inside the monitor)

#2 The panel is almost dead. They have a tendency to do this when they are failing.

Hope it helps =)

The monitor powers up then shuts off then a second later it starts up again and keeps repeating

More likely to have dying power supply due to bad caps just like the rest of failed ACER monitors as shown in my albums here:

Every 5 to 10 minutes my monitor gets a white screen. If I turn off and back on the monitor, it goes away

You may loose connection between the logic board and the LCD panel connector, or the 5vdc feeding the panel is going out. Look to see if you notice anu caps with leaking.bulging tops.

The problem with PC or the monitor?
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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

This is a low-end monitor and the image processor is failing. You will require a replacement but since the monitor is low-cost, it is cheaper to simply by a new one.

Black Mark

only sounds as if he has damaged the pixels so much they don't display the colour properly any more, if it is still under warranty get it replaced by Acer, if not take it to an electronics store like pc world and they might be able to fix it for a price.
