Question about HP Pavilion a800n (PP163AA) PC Desktop
I have a LCD 22'inch Monitor with runing on vista, and when ever I turn on the computer, the monitor just have about 3-4 sec. of screen on to the log on screen and just turn black, (blank), so i tried the same monitor on to my laptop, samething is happening.
SOURCE: Hmm... is still not working
Start your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to power-up. Keep tapping until you come to the Safe Mode screen. When the screen alerts you to the fact that you have chosen Safe Mode, click OK.
When you get to the desktop go to the control panel and launch System Properties. Go to Hardware and Device manager. Click the arrow next to the Display Adapter. Point at the adapter, right click and chooser Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Roll back the video driver to previous driver.
If indeed you have installed a new driver that is not compatible with your video card, then rolling it back to the original may very well take care of this problem.

The monitor should be plug and play, and you've already figured out that it's not your computer by plugging into a working monitor.
This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If the power light is blinking on-and-off, or just staying on with no image, that's the problem. There is a slight chance that it could be the light itself, but inverters fail more commonly.
If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.
