Hello, I own a Dell LCD Monitor, when I boot up the computer the monitor stays black. I see the desktop image for half a second, but very faintly. The power light is solid green and remains so. I have switched out monitors, any other monitor works fine. I also switched out power and VGA cables and its not any of those either. When I press and hold enter right after I turn on the monitor, I see the desktop image again faintly, but it disappears in half a second. What's the issue here? Thanks again.

Probably the inverter or power supply in the monitor. In general, unless you can fix it yourself, it's cheaper to buy an new one.

Good Luck
