    It's usually a video problem verses an internal problem.  The screen may need to be replaced.  These can be acquired easily off of Ebay.  Now, there may be a problem if you computer was bought used.  Many people like to rig their computer problems in order to make them work and they do so incorrectly.  If you go to replace a piece of equipment make sure that it will fit your computer and not some off-the-wall plug or something.

    I had a monitor that when you turned it on it would just flash on and then turn off. Turns out it was some bad capacitors in the internal powersupply. 3 bucks and 4 solders and I was back in business.
