Tonight while I was playing chess with my girlfriend we noticed that my Montior turned blue and then off. We tried shutting it down for awhile(both system and monitor) and still the same thing. I even tried to connect it to my laptop and the monitor still would turn blue and off radomly(usally within a few seconds of it being on). The monitor is a Sony Trinitron by Dell 19". Im using my sisters monitor now(ironicly the exact same one but a few years old) and everything is working fine. Am I screwed or is there a way to revive it?

Thanks
