What can cause my monitor to simply "fade to black" in about 2 seconds?

    When bootup starts, i see the info screen for 2s and then it gradually "fades" in 2s.The screen is black during the whole bootup.
    Same thing with an old game - Icewind dale 1(2 works fine and all newer games), when i start the game screen immideatly goes black.When i switch monitor on-off monitor i see the menu for those 2s and it again fades.
    Same thing when 3dmark03 is done with the 4 game tests and resets to test 1, my monitor goes black similar to icewind dale 1.
    at one point, vundo even caused my monitor to display out of range error, but it was like this again after i removed alot of it in safe mode.
    ive done scans with avast, some online scanner, ad-aware and spybot S&D.
    Im thinking it may be something that vundo permanently changed in my computer.
