This has happened to me twice now in the past couple of weeks. My routine is that I turn on my computer and walk away to go get breakfast going, so the first time it happened (Feb 15), I didn't witness the process. My first reaction was to mess with the monitor itself, since it was obvious my computer and other externals were on. My screen was just black. No message about my display. Nothing.
When I'd power the monitor off and back on again, I'd see my display briefly before it'd go black again. I did this a few more time and it stayed on.
I knew my graphics driver wasn't up to date, so I went through a separate ordeal trying to update it (the installer kept failing). I also re-seated my card, just because.
I hadn't had an issue since then until today. Thing is, due to this happening, I linger for a few seconds to make sure my monitor boots up and has some kind of display. I saw ASUS flash up on my screen per usual, so I walked away, but it still went black, apparently, and I didn't get to see when.
When I came back, seeing the black screen, I tried cycling it off and on again and it did the same thing as last time: I'd see my display briefly before the screen went black again, and then it finally stayed on.
As a side note, though my monitor is obviously on, the blue HEY I AM ON light isn't on. However, the orange I AM NOT ON light shines proudly through the night when my computer's off.
