  1. While you're using the computer, or after you leave it for a while? In the case of the latter, someone has set your PC's power options, to make your screen power down to save power. What Windows are you using? specs?

    Hi folks,

    I had this problem with my Videosonic VE170b monitor: after boot, monitor comes on for just about 1-2 seconds then goes

    to black.

    Hitting one of the buttons on the monitor (I think auto-adjust) would bring the monitor back again, but for only the same 1-2

    seconds. Repeat hitting the monitor button would again bring it back, but only for 1-2 seconds.

    SOLUTION: Mine was solved by changing the display color quality from high (32-bit) to medium (16-bit).
    (YES, I had to repeatedly hit the monitor button and quickly move the mouse to do these steps, which was quite


    ALT-CLICK on a blank spot of the desktop; from the dropdown menu, choose PROPERTIES.

    Click on the SETTINGS tab, where you'll see COLOR QUALITY dropdown box. Mine was set to High (32-bit).
    I clicked on the dropdown arrow and chose MEDIUM (16-bit), and this solved my problem.

    Hope it solves yours!
