Do you have a friend that has a monitor you could borrow? I google didn't find anything when I put that model number in, can you verify that it is correct?

If you know someone that has a monitor you should hook it up to your computer and I'm guessing it will work. I had a few monitors do that to me at work. Still don't know why they did it, but they are very old monitors. Maybe it was just time for them to go.

Hope this helps!

Well yah. I think it's dead but is there a way to fix it like replace a resistor or fuse inside the monitor or something. I already checked the fuse it seems ok. Is just something else i just can pin point.

i wouldnt recommend it unless you know what your doing. if you can get the cover off of it, you can take a look at the capacitors, check to see if any of them have popped, or if there are any burn marks on any parts on the inside. if you have never replaced anything like that before i say just get a new monitor.

and remember a monitor can give you a pretty good jolt if you are not careful.... if you don't know how to discharge capacitors and the tube I would say it's not something you want to try and do....
