Look for bad caps first, worst case will be bad IC/MOSFET in the inverter circuits which will need in-depth component level troubleshooting.

This is due to system goes to stand by mode or Hibernate mode. To disable, go to power management and disable or incrase the time for the same.

Revert back for more assistance. Also give your valuable feedback/rating on the same.

Difficulty getting monitor to display when computer powers up


The Problem may be due to the defective inverter unit inside the monitor. Dry to resolder if any dry joint on the inverter PCB or replace the inverter board.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


I am not familiar with your particular model, but I do know what the problem is.
The inverter that runs the lights behind the screen is faulty and needs to be repaired. The lights shine from the top and bottom and reflect outwards through the panel so you can see what is on the screen. If you start the computer up, then shine a bright light into the panel you will see an image on the screen, but very feintly.
This can be cheap, it can also be expensive depending on where you go to get it repaired. Call aorund to a few TV shops in your area to get a rough idea on prices.

Hope that helps =)

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


The green power light indicates that the monitor is receiving from the computer correctly. I suspect it is going into high voltage shutdown. There is a safety circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts the monitor down if it sees anything amiss. So the monitor comes on and then shuts off. High voltage problems are generally not worth trying to repair. Another example of a worthless safety feature. High voltage failures are not dangerous, and adding the safety circuit just kills the unit when it may have some life left or worse, sometimes it is the shutdown circuit itself which fails!
Hope this helps.
