I too have an LCD Xerox - it worked fine for a while, then kept going blank. Unplugging and reconnecting from both pc and power seems to reset it. It hadn't happened for months but started again the other night when it occurred to me that I have downloaded MS security updates - I've removed the ones that I downloaded just before it started happening again and the problem seems to be solved. Hope this helps someone.
An all too common problem with lcd's, you would think they would be more reliable after being on the market for years, alas they are not.\015\012\015\012\015\012See if it does the same thing on a friends PC if you are able; if so the you will know the lcd is faulty.
