The monitor turns black after some period of usage and we thought we needed a new monitor, so we bought one. The problem is still happening! What could it be?

This is most likely the power settings that you have on your monitor.

Windows allows you to set it to power down hard drive and monitor when it is not active for a period of time. If you want to turn it off, right-click on a blank spot on the desktop, choose properties.

Click the screensaver tab. Click the power button to adjust settings. Change settings to NEVER to leave it on all the time.
