Monitor display keeps shutting off

Hi,

The display on my LCD monitor on one of my computer's will not stay on.  If I turn the monitor off and then back up, the display is viewable for about a second and then it goes black.  I first noticed this earlier today.  I rebooted the computer and had no problem with the monitor display staying on.  Sometime later, the display went back off again and rebooting does not do any good.  I can turn the monitor off and on to see the display for about one second, but then the screen goes dark.  I am afraid that the solution will be that I am going to have to purchase a new monitor, but I thought I would throw this out here in case someone knows something that I can do to correct this problem.

Probably be cheaper to replace but if you have the tools and know how you can throw a few parts at it.

Here is a 10 minute video on parts replacement on LCD's.

See if you want to give it a try.

Try the following:
1. From the onscreen menu of your Monitor, change the resolution to 800x600
2. From the desktop of the PC, change the resolution of the display to 800x600

Reboot the Machine.

Try the above steps one or 2 times it works. Play with the resolutions (minimum resolutions) and I have seen it worked many times.
