It could be a problem with whatever video cable you are using. Try finding another one and hooking it up. See if that solves the problem. If not it is probably an issue with the gpu.

You can also confirm that is not on the monitor's end by hooking it up to another device. (If you use the same cable, you confirm whether it may be the cable's fault as well.)

It sounds like a monitor problem, because if your gpu is bad, you wouldn't get 5 seconds of display when switching the monitor off and on (assuming it is display from the computer, not just the monitor logo). Just to make sure, you can narrow down whether it's a monitor problem or a gpu problem by testing the monitor on a different computer or laptop. If the same issue exists on a different computer, then try using a different cable because on rare cases your cable can be faulty. If the monitor still doesn't work, then I would suggest getting a new one since fixing a monitor isn't easy.
