I've tried turning it on and off, unplugging it, and everything else, but the monitor goes to sleep after being on for only a couple of seconds. Also, instead of the natural clear light that computers usually have, the light is red. HELP!! My computer is only 2 years old...

Re: monitor stays asleep
Check in the BIOS and see what your monitor settings are.
Did you change the sleep mode or power off mode? What
do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too
hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it
does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going

I would try this monitor with another PC first to verify that it is not PC problem.
Most common failures in the monitors are due to bad caps in the power supply/inverter board, we want to find out first if it is the monitor or the PC problem.
See examples of failed ACER due to bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER/
After repairing the on/off button for $100.00 and then rehooking up the monitor to my pc, the monitor has power but stays asleep even when I push in the menu button, I can't get anything to happen. HP techs tell me that the problem is with my computer although it worked perfectly fine before I unhooked all to send out the monitor.
I hooked all back up again as before but now the monitor will only say "monitor going to sleep" and nothing happens.
Hi, Your problem may be due to the sleep button in your keyboard may got struct into when you cleaned your keyboard. Try to resolve the struct in the keys, if any. Restart your system and if still your problem persists, then remove your keyboard and restart your computer and try with some other keyboard if possible. Once if you find out that the problem is with your keyboard, then replace the keyboard / service the existing one.'
I hope this is helpful to you. Please provide your ratings. Thanks
I would recommend that you try it on another computer to see if you are able to reproduce the results. If that is the case you should look at any new drivers, software or updates that have been installed. If the issue continues with another PC, it sounds as though the monitor's power supply is possibly failing. in that case I would suggest you simply replace the whole monitor. Unless you are not shy with a soldering iron. ;) good luck!
Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.
This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.
If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).
If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.
