I guessing that when you say "goes off" you mean it goes into power-saving mode? Assuming that you're working on the computer at the time (so it's not actually going to power saving mode from inactivity), this might indicate one of two things:
a) the VGA cable to the computer is not in a good contact with the monitor. This might happen if you haven't used the screws to fix it in place, just try to plug it fully in on both ends (computer and monitor). If the monitor sees to VGA signal, it goes into power saving mode automatically.
b) there's a problem with the monitor that builds up after a few minutes. When you turn it off, it "cools down" and can be used again. If that's the case, you should take it to a dealer's shop and have it checked (or replaced if it's still under warranty).

Very typical of View Sonic. Sounds like a back backlight or inverter. I would go to www.viewsonic.com and open up a RMA. Most view sonic screens have a 3 year warranty. They will repair at no cost ..(if it is within that period) There is a date code on the back of the screen that will help you validate the above information.

My viewsonic monitor goes black after booting up


Does it do the same with other PC?
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
