Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding

\015 My monitor screen wont turn on basically, the screen was on standbye last night as in i turned the computer off and the screen goes to standbye. I wake thismorning to turn the computer on and the computer works a charm but the screen stays black, the menu bar wont come up however the screen is on with the light blinking, once turned on the light goes constant as if everything is fine however nothing happens. I plugged my girlfriends screen into my computer using only her monitor, my plugs and all and everything works fine :( plz help hehe.\015

Answers :

It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.
Unplug the monitor from the power for about 30minutes, this will make it "reset" itself and might solve the problem.
\015\012If it helps, next time when you shut down the pc turn off the monitor instead of making it go into standby to avoid future problems.
