Default Gateway Monitor Problems

I just recently got a used gateway 2100 22" LCD monitor and was told it works for awhile and then dies. This is exactly what it does and im wondering if anyone has repaired this before. It will power on and work randomly but you have to keep trying unplugging and replugging it in to get it working. The rest of the time it just flickers the gateway logo, goes black, flickers it again, goes black. etc. Until it just stays black and you unplug/replug. Ive done a little bit if research and found it could be a failing switch mode power supply or converter. How should i go about repairing this?
