My Monitor Turns Itself Off

August 3, 2010 at 07:24:56
Specs: Vista
When I turn my computer on, the monitor turns itself off after a few seconds. If I press on the monitor's on button, the same thing happens. Is the problem with the monitor or my computer?

First thing I would try is hooking a different monitor up to the computer and see if it works. If it does not work or does the same thing, I'd say it's your computer. If it works fine, I'd say it's your monitor. It'd be a place to start anyways.

another test is to boot up and go into the bios. If you can stay there and see the screen fine its the video configuration in the OS

How can I see the BIOS if the screen is black. I tried to turn the monitor on with the computer off, and it did the same thing. Also, I disconnected the monitor and it still turned itself off in a few seconds.

It sounds like its just your monitor. Try it on a different computer and I bet it does the same thing.
