Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds a lot like the backlight for it is just about dead. Nothing you've done can cause this to happen, and it certainly isn't a setting on the monitor or PC.
The backlight can be bought as a part, and replaced by a technician (or yourself if you have a rough idea what you're doing). By the time you find one, buy it, ship it, fit it... it might not be worth your time for the cost of a new 21" widescreen monitor.
You'd probably recoup some loss by selling it as faulty for parts too.
Still, be 100% sure before you do it... borrow a monitor and plug it in. I bet the borrowed monitor won't behave the same way. =-]
