17" Monitor shuts off after a few seconds on initial normal startup. Sometimes it will stay on but mostly shuts off. Is this an auto shut-off due to wrong high voltage readings? What will it take to fix, parts or adjustments? Same Problem on different PC's and my laptop!

Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.
If the monitor is connected to a DVI output on your computer try to connect it to the VGA to see if it's an issue with the input or if the monitor is shot. It sounds like your monitor just crapped out.
That issue is normally caused by the backlight in the LCD. The compact florescent light in the display is burning out. They will normally light for a few seconds when first powered on, then shutoff.
Ultimately, the bulb needs to be replaced. If your into hacking electronics, you can get a replacement bulb online and DIY. Otherwise, the cost of having it repaired is usually very close if not more than a new monitor.
This is a bit tricky as you can get it fixed under warrenty but they will likely ask you to send back the entire computer not just the monitor. It is also something that you could fix or several shops could but the repair cost really isn't much less than a new monitor. You are not stuck using an HP monitor so anything will work and you can get quite a lot bigger or better for about $120 and up. Repair cost is going to be $80-$100 so as you can see for just a few dollars more you have a new warrentied monitor.
First check the monitor sleep mode for your monitor in windows control panel, check that its not going into hibernation/stanby. if thats not it. and the monitor keeps shutting down. You may have to replace it newer models have more features and could be cheaper by saving you the hassel check newegg.com or orverstock.com
While it is sounding like a hardware problem. I'll throw in my 2 cents. Have you check the cables from the power to the source and from the monitor to the computer. Just make sure those aren't loose.
One other thing...you mentioned you turn off the computer "afterwards" then it fixes itself. Is the fix for longer than it turns on at first? or does it stay on longer then goes out?
Let me know what happens.
