    My Dell monitor keeps going black. The only way I can get it to come back on is to push the power off and back on. After I get to come back on it goes back off. I have got to stay on for a couple hours but it went black again and I have not got it to stay on any longer.

    If possible try the Monitor on a different computer to see if it does the same thing. If not then it may be either a cable or graphics card problem.

    I don't have another computer to try the monitor on. Is there a way I can tell if its my card?
