This may be shot in the dark...since you may have already thought of it...

Could it be that you've accidentally hit some keystrokes that placed your monitor into the mode for viewing it on an outside source such as a tv?

On my Dell Inspiron 1524 laptop, if I press the FN and F8 (CRT/TV) keys, it temporarily disables my monitor since it assumes that I have a TV connected. Since you didn't list the Make and Model of your laptop, it may be on a different key. The FN key initiates a special function when it's pressed with the appropriate key. If you press the combination again, it should eventually allow you to see your monitor again.

I hope that will solve your problem. If it doesn't you may wish to write again.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

Very doubtful. Either you have a defective or corrupt display driver, or possibly a malware infection. Is that a laptop or notebook computer? If so, is there a VGA port for an external monitor? If do, try using a known good external monitor.

Hi!

There are three possible cause why your monitor went black and start working..

1. If your monitor is dead set.. no reaction or lights turn on after power on.. then it needs to check if there is blown capacitor in its power supply section..

2. The high voltage ballast transformer of the backlight inverter is burned - it needs to be replaced so that it will not have a direct effect on the power supply section of the monitor.

3. The backlight inverters are all busted - the backlight was located at the upper and lower back edge of the monitor.. If these lights are busted then all that will be seen in your monitor is black screen.. It will need to be replaced so that image display will come out from your screen..

These 3 reason and its solutions can only be done by yourself if you have the knowledge, proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of the monitor and replace the problem parts....

Otherwise, bring your monitor to a credible technician and if there is warranty,, avail of this...

Hope that answer your question..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

Used as second monitor suddenly stared to go dark


If the screen is lighting up for a fraction of a second when you turn on & then goes dark, this indicates a fault either with the backlights on the screen or the inverter part of the monitor. You can check the backlights if you have access to a backlight tester, you need to remove the rear cover & connect the backlight cables into the tester, if this checks ok then look for a problem on the inverter board, checking the capacitors for any signs of distress.
