First of all, most monitors now a days are plug and play. Make sure the monitor is secure on both sides. There is also another connecter like the one attached to the CPU on the monitor, so make sure they're both securly attached. Also make sure you have the connector plugged in the correct monitor port. some computers have 2.

Screen goes black as if it shut off but i can still hear it running.

Most newer computer have energy saving features that turn off the monitor, hard drives and various other components after a designated period of time.

Open the panel where you change the screensaver. At the bottom of that should be a box that says "Change power settings". In that box click the power settings link and that will open the power control panel. You can then use the contols in there to adjust the settings to how you like them. you can set it to power down after 5 minutes or never depending on what you feel is apropriate.

Hope this helps

CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.
