Default Monitor Issues

I've got a Microtek 15" LCD monitor. When I boot up the computer, the monitor starts out normal, but only for a second or two. After which it goes almost black (you can still see the screen, but it is extremely hard). I've tried hooking it up to a different video card and even switched the VGA cable, with no luck. I've also tried the different settings i.e. brightness, contrast, auto-adjust. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this something that's fixable, or completely dead?

I think it's a monitor problem,and I don't think it's the kind of problem that you can fix by yourself...You could ask on a repair shop if they can repair it,and how much it'll cost.

Have you tried to plug it in to another computer to be sure.

I've tried another computer, another vga cable and even a third video card. All of these don't seem to work. It's just weird that the screen will be fine for a second or two and then go to almost black?
