Default monitor goes black

hi my week old hyundai 19" widescreen monitor appears to be working fine then when it gets past the scrolling bar on vista it goes black,

if i try and enter the bios, the bios shows up for about a second then it goes black

do you think i should take it back or is it a problem with my pc?

It's not the OS or other hardwares there since it goes black right after you enter the bios. It's going into hibernation or standby mode on it's own suggesting factory defect.

If you just bought it I would. That isn't normal unless you see a mode setting option where you can set it to constant on or timed standby like an energy saver mode? Most are system or software controlled. But to see it as soon as you power up? No! factory defect!

I can imagine you are glad to see that one replaced fast. Hope the new works out well for you.
