ive been having this problem for a couple weeks now. my screen will go dark, and the only way to get it to work is to turn it off and on. the only problem with this is the fact that it wont stop doing this untill i constantly turn it off and on when it goes dark for a good 30-45 minutes. its currently doing it now, and its nearly impossible to type or do anything for that matter.

can anyone help me !!???

Most monitors are warrantied for three years. I would call the manufacturer and look into a repair. There is a hardware issue with them onitor.

I am a little bit baised -- as I work for an Acer dealer. I enjoy their monitors and they provide fair customer support.

I'd go for Samsung. I have Samsung 215TW which is five years old already and still going strong. Samsung is the world's largest manufacturer of liquid-crystal display panels and also supplies TFT-LCDs to Sony. They also make the screens for the Apple iPad mini series, so plenty of know-how behind every product they make.
