Default LCD Monitor Problem

My monitor went out last night while my son was watching a movie. I checked everything and even connected it to another computer and my laptop and I still get nothing. The backlight is on, there is light coming from the panel. It is not black, or dead. All the lights are on everything seems to be ok except it will not display any images. I know absolutely nothing about monitors of any kind and was hoping someone here could help me out. I have done some searches, but found nothing helpful. I don't need to replace the backlight it seems. Someone please help, the monitor is not even two years old. Thank you.

This is not what you want to hear but it sounds like your monitor is dead.

If my monitor is indeed dead I need to replace it ASAP.

Anybody out there?

Thank you. I know they make good motherboards, but I wasn't sure how well they put together a monitor. And, there are a lot less comments/reviews for the Asus, so I was a bit hesitant. Your "guru" opinion has convinced me to just do it... ordering it now. Thanks again.
