Default Help monitor not functioning correctly

Does anyone know what the problem with my monitor is?

Is is a flat panel LCD that keeps shutting off every second i turn it out. I will puchthe button on and then a split second later, it cuts off. A pciture is shown for a second so i know that the LCD is nto broken. i think it is th epower. Are all power supplies to LCD the same?

it could be your refresh rate is too high...

look really closely and see if you can see a faint picture. I think it is your inverter. there is a little fluorescent tube in ther so you can see the picture, the inverter causes the tube to work. If it is the inverter if you look really close , maybe some extra light you will see a faint picture. I do not think refresh rate bothers LCD, that is only for crt that have deflection coils to " paint " a picture on the front of the crt. I could be wrong on that . When super vga came out i tried to drive a regular vga with super settings, it over drove the crt made a hissing sound then nothing. slight chance, very small it could be the vid card, can you hook the lcd to a notebook or another pc ?
