Do you also have a VGA cable ? You might want to try that out to see if there is any change. You might have to use the monitor's on-screen controls to select getting input from the VGA port/cable before you swap cables.
It is also possible that the video adapter in the computer is flaky. Can you try using the monitor attached to another "known good" working computer ? This would certainly tell you whether or not the monitor is faulty.

Thanks very much for responding, you were very helpful.
Also of note: The shutting off and on thing was really bad, like 10 times in a row, but then I disabled the Adobe Acrobat Updater and the Adobe Photoshop Gamma from the startup menu and it only turns off and on for two or three times now. Except not now because I'm using the analog connection, which isn't nearly as bright as I like it to be.

Analog and digital on that particular monitor will give no difference at all, brightness is a seperate setting you can just go and turn it up in the monitor options the VGA hasnt anything to do with it, on most modern LCDs like that the analog modem is advanced enough to be as good image quality wise as the DVI.

I don't know what's going on with the brightness: it seems dimmer to me but I guess it's my imagination. I recently changed my desktop colors so maybe I'm still adjusting to that.
