Monitor problems?


Ever since I deleted my screen saver program (image catcher)I'm having the following problem: When my computer sits without being used the screen blacks out completely. When I would move my mouse around the screen would come back. However, now the screen never comes back and I have to restart my computer by pressing my re-boot button. I can't even get the close task window to come up when I do a control + Alt + del. I have tried resetting my windows screen saver and nothing seems to work. My monitor is only about 9 months old, it is a Compaq MV920. I turn it off every night, but my computer stays running usually. The last few days I have turned everything off at night and that hasn't helped.

Thanks for any help!
