Why does my monitor only stay on for a few seconds?

by on March 31, 2011

Q: My monitor comes on for about 10 seconds, then it goes to sleep. When I restart the computer, it stays up for about 1 minute after it finishes loading. I’ve checked all of the cables, switched outputs on my video card, but nothing changes. What do you suggest?

    There might be an issue with the monitor itself. If it is still under warranty, I suggest you contact the manufacturer.

    Also, if at all possible, try hooking up the computer to a different monitor to see if the problem goes away. If it does you’ll need to replace your monitor.
