When I turn on my PC, the monitor shows picture for a few seconds and then it disappears, but the power-light/led on the monitor is on. Then I have to turn it off and turn it on again, and it shows picture for a few seconds and then it disappears again. This happens both in Windows Xp and during the boot/start-up. Any ideas, what should I do?

By picture do you mean like a manufacturer logo? Or do you see the Window desktop/startup for a couple seconds?

I mean screen/image, be it windows desktop or start-up or manufacturer logo. It shows what it should show at that moment for few seconds, and then goes black, but the monitor is still on.

Couple things I would test.

1. Try the monitor on a different device.
2. Try a different cable or connection (if your using vga try dvi, or vise versa)
3. Open up your PC and check to be sure your video card is seated and clean the fan
