Re: (2000) Sony Monitor capability
Only if you need the heat from it; flatscreens of the same size use around 1/10 the power of the CRTs. Since businesses could make up the cost of the monitor in less than a year of the power savings, in 2000, it's definitely safe and wise to go flatscreen in 2008.
I used a CRT to heat sandwiches in a place with no microwaves in 1993. Otherwise they're hulking abominations that kill species.

Try another monitor on your computer. If you still get a blank screen then its an issue with the computer not having any video coming out of the video card. If you hook up another monitor and you get video then its an issue with the original monitor.
Also try the original monitor on another computer and see if video comes up. If you still don't get video, that would mean the monitor is bad for sure since you would have tried it on two different computers.
as u told ur monitor is excellent only... it is in good condition no problem will be there ... may be there is problem with the operating system just try reinstalling it... ur problem will be solved...
-Turn off both computer and monitor
-unplug monitor from computer(still plugged into power supply)
-turn on computer and monitor(monitor is still unplugged)
-After computer is on for about 30 sec. plug monitor into computer
-turn off both monitor and computer(now connected together)
-turn on monitor then computer and should be good to go!!!
Are you sure this is a monitor problem? I have a user with a Mac that occasionally has the same symptoms you describe. For me I generally have to shut the computer down and physically unplug the power cord from the computer (not monitor), reattach it and restart.
Let us know if that works for you.
