Monitor shuttin off

Specs: Windows XP
I have been having trouble with my monitor lately, once windows xp is up and running my monitor turns idle with the black screen but is still on. When I manually press the power button on the monitor it will turn on for like a second and then it will shut right back off again. I have cleaned my system out daily, any ideas about what is going on?

Try the monitor with a different computer, but if it still happens, the inverter or backlight is probably the culprit. The way to tell is to see if you faintly still see what's on the screen after it shuts off (use a flashlight if you need to). If you can still see it, it's probably the backlight, if not, it's probably the inverter.
