I was using my computer earlier and went out for a while. When I cam back the screen was blank and blue. I can not get a picture. I have turned off the computer and monitor and checked connections with the same results. After a while the screen saver came on. I moved the mouse and the desktop flashed on the screen then back to blue. The mouse pointer is the only thing I can see on the screen.

Any ideas or suggestions? Running Windows Vista Business

Try this monitor on another computer to see if it exhibits the same problem and try another monitor on this computer. If its the monitor then check for warranty, which can be up to 5 years on some models, if its out of warranty then toss the monitor and get a new one. If its the PC we can do more troubleshooting.

Did you use the same cables or different cables between the monitor and computer?

When you first turn on your computer and it goes through the BIOS screens and then the Windows boot screens, do those look normal or are they affected the same way?

Well the computer kept starting back up on its own like it was stuck in a loop. Once I realized this was happening. I pushed and held the on/off switch until it shut down and left it alone for awhile. My son turned it on and I started working just fine. Go figure.

Thank you for your help.
