Monitor flashes on boot up then goes blank

This question is not answered

When I turn on my monitor (E176FPf), it will flash the windows logo then go dark.  I have tried the self-test, but again it just briefly flashes the self-test screen then goes black.  What do I do?  Monitor is only 2 years old nd has never been dropped or subjected to any abuse.  I have also tried different cords, unplugging, etc
