It sounds like you had a mother board failure. its probably not fixable but i would still suggest taking out the computers ram and sticking it back in. i have ran into issue of that before. but from what your saying your computer wont even get to post( power on self test) which indicates a hardware issue. given you said that the usb stopped working on you i would say something fried on your motherboard.

Have signal, but no light, just one second screen can see and shut off.


Please clarify by shut off you mean power light turn off or just screen gone blank but power light remain on!

Mostly inverter(power supply) needs attention in such cases.

I have 2 of these monitors with the same problem. On power up the green led will light & remain on but the screen remains black. On one of the monitors the screen will light up for a few seconds then...


The inverter that turns on the back light may be bad - it's suppose to create the high voltage pulses to fire the CCFL back light lamps. Apparently the back light turns on after a few seconds however, it cannot stay on because the inverter might be bad. If you connect a known external CCFL lamp to the to the inverter output you can isolate the inverter.

NEC MultiSync lcd 2010 monitor blank screen


This is the common bad capacitor problem. The caps have died inside, and they can be replaced. If you have basic electronics skills, you can go in, order replacement caps, and unsolder and resolder. If you can't do it yourself, you can take it into a shop.

Here is a link to the Cap plague that explains what happens in detail. But I repair these all the time with that symptom.

My screen doesnt work.


I suggest you to perform these steps.
Test the AC adapter Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board.
  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button to start the notebook PC.
If the notebook does not start or the display is blank then check the power indicator light or power socket LED. I suggest you to connect the notebook to external monitor and check whether its working or not. Then please perform the harddrive self test also.
