Question

Dell Monitor??

I have a Dell Monitor Model: 2208WFPt, monitor will turn on for only a few seconds then go black? The light stays green on the button, where you turn on and off, and if I turn it off then back on will work but again for only a few seconds?? What could be the problem??

Thanks
