I have a nokia 445 pro CRT. When I connect it to my computer and turn it on I do not get a picture. I have tried using a different monitor cable.
When I first turn it on the power light is steady, then after about a minute it starts blinking.

These were a fine monitor and with the kind of image quality you cannot get on TFT's. If you know the graphics card you are using is working ok, have checked the VGA cable connection and socket at the monitor and computer and have tested the monitor on another computer, that would rule out any problems as far as connected devices are concerned.
The problem you describe, and it is unusual that it has happened so quickly, points to a failure of the monitor internal board. You may be able to get this repaired at a reasonable cost by seeking the opinion of a TV repairman, who might be able to fix it.
there are many reason why a monitor suddenly turned off then back to work again , over use may over heat that cause the soled parts on the printed board of your CRT go loosen , try to re sold it, sometimes your PC might stop viewing so the monitor automatically shot off stby mode , loose connection due to basted parts , capacitors,power regulators,resistors , even the cables also might be.
CRT monitors do not need drivers as they only receive a signal from the computer, they do not send them. How does your monitor connect to the rest of the PC? Specifically the back part where the peripherals plug in.
I doubt a Windows 7 driver is available your old CRT monitor. Rarely do you need a monitor driver for any monitor except to ensure that your PC knows the various resolutions ("desktop sizes") the monitor can support. Do you have a manual for the monitor? If so, look up the highest resolution it can use, e.g., 1024x768, and set your graphics resolution to that. If you need help doing that let me know. Also, of course, feel welcome to say why you need drivers.
I thought my problem was originally monitor related. However since I posted, the picture disappeared altogether, and my PC wouldn't even start to bootup. Fearing my mobo may have died I removed the hardware components, cleaned then re-assembled them. After all that, it turned out that my graphics card has a tendency to become slightly unseated. Once I was aware of this problem booting up resumed normally. It seems that the problem of the fading monitor picture seems to still occur, but soon after I use the machine after 'hibernation' state, and even then it doesn't always occur if I do use hibernation. I haven't used hibernation for a little while and so far the problem has not returned
