It might be the video card/chip instead of the monitor. Does the LED on the monitor remain green when it goes black? Best way to tell is to try and borrow another monitor

Minimize everything or click show desktop on the Quick launch then Try right clicking then go to properties-> screensaver-> monitor power-> Power-> turn off monitor... then change it to whatever you want... if you still have a problem get a new monitor or follow garmanma. :thumbsup:
