Having a similar problem. When I turn my monitor on, the picture tries to come on, but then goes black. After several times, I may get lucky and the picture will hold. Is my monitor about ready to give up the ghost? Mine is a few years old as well.

Have you check all connection to see if they are all intact and in good position, if yes, no problem.
I believe the power led button is still on while the
screen is black, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is
bad that is why it is black.
the power led button is on, It means the picture
board on your monitor is faulty that is why it is black.
The best thing for you to do now is to take the
a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help
with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not
something you can fix yourself in other to complicate issues.
It is a symptom that like T.V's usually manifest before they go busted. I also had that kind of problem before. Then after 4 to 5 months, my monitor just has a black screen. It powers on, but still a black screen.
I have exact same problem but mine happened to 2 of my x2gen monitors at the same time,really strange.
One was purchased 01/07 and the second 04/07
Took my PC in, no problems
Took one of the x2gen in,was told monitor is bad
How could both monitors go bad at the same time???????
Your inverter circuit is faulty. This controls the lights inside the screen so you can see what is happening on the LCD panel itself.
If you shine a torch into the LCD from the top at an angle you will still see the images on the screen. But with no light inside to project it outwards, it's dark.
A local TV repair shop should be able to do the reprair fairly cheap, but it's best to make a few phone calls and check they will work on an LCD monitor firstly, and secondly a rough quote.
This is a very common fault with LCD monitors.
Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
