Sony Moniter gone bad?

ummm, i really dont know what happened, hopefully someone will know. my sis was working on the comp and the screen randomly went blank. its a year old sony 17" lcd flat. when i push input on the side bar, the screen flashes for a sec and goes black again instantly. i plugged in my old olddddd compaq moniter, and its working great, dispite the angry head aches from usage. can someone tell me what a probable answer to this problem is?

well, if you used a different monitor successfully on the same comp that the original monitor crapped out on, its probably the monitor. try to hook it up to a different comp with a known good vid card...

crts are cheap nowadays....

You should look at it closely when it's on to see if it's still showing the picture. It could just be the backlight that blew.

That doesnt suprise me a bit. The same thing has been happening all over at the casino i work at the last few weeks. They'll work fine one second then blank, and thats that. Many different brands, all the same problems, most less than a year old.
