Display Comes on then goes black

Sony Vaio pcv-w20 desktop

Specs: Windows XP
Working on a Sony Vaio All-In-One w/new system board and inverter. Turning the system on the Sony Logo comes (pinkish in color) on then blanks out, during post the display flickers (also pinkish in color) a few times then goes blank, the display comes back for a few seconds when the XP logo comes on (color appears to be normal) then goes blank and stays blank. If you look close you can see the desktop, ctrl-esc pops up the menu and you can shut it down or reboot, the display will repeat as above.

Figured the inverter was the problem but since that's been replaced I'm at a loss...

Any chance it's the display itself or something else? Seems pretty much everything has already been replaced but the screen but have never run into that kind of an issue....
