Its more or less your monitor has gone bad.
To check the same , unplug the monitor from the computer , a slef test feature check would be displayed . Check if the monitor goes blank or shows ghost lines . If yes the monitor is bad. If you have got the system before 12 Dec 2005 its generaly covered under 3 yrs warranty.If purchased after that , it would have your system warranty

Computer is on and screen goes black but the sounds and everything is still working


The monitor on this is an LCD, not an LED monitor. The symptoms you are describing are classic fluorescent backlight failure symptoms. It seems a bit early in life for that to occur, as most failure after 2-3 years of use. To determine if the backlight has failed, after booting the system, look at the screen at very close range at an angle. If you can see what looks like a ghost image of what should be on the display, then the video chip is providing video to the display, but the backlight isn't illuminating it. Repair or replace the monitor.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.
