When I go to boot the PC it goes white and if i restart the monitor it goes back to normal for a few seconds...I've tried different PC's and different cables so I'm assuming it's an issue with the monitor. any suggestions would be helpful...THANKS

sounds like the lcd panel is going bad.... If that is the case it may not be worth fixing.

That's what I'm starting to think to but I was hoping against hope that it wasn't true.

well if it goes white that means the backlight is working and that the invertor is supplying power so next would be screen....

So would you recommend fixing the screen or just buying a new monitor?

Quicker to replace it than mess about with it.

does the screen fade to white or just switch straight to white if it fades , then its most likely a contrast fault which would be worth getting fixed , if it switches straight over then you might have a dry joint on it either way if its a good one and worth a bit its better to let someone have a look at it , could just be a dry joint or a faulty potentiometer, good luck
