Specs: Windows XP SP3, P3/500MB
The monitor I got from a friend works just fine for the first ten minutes after booting up and then goes completely blank. When I tried it while playing a CD with the media player, the same thing happened yet it's built-in speakers continued to play sound and the indicator light is still lit. Any suggestions as to what the problem could be?

If it's an LCD display, the backlight is failing or the voltage inverter that supplies high voltage to it is defective. If the screen has or has had a colored tint, it's the backlight.

For some info about replacing a voltage inverter or backlight, and what some typical symptoms are, see response 5 in this:
