New Monitor Problems: Acer P241W

I just bought this new monitor (an Acer P241W) about two weeks ago. I bought it so I could hook my 360 and computer up to it. When I got the monitor, my computer was being worked on, so I only hooked up my 360. It worked fine, and then I went away on a five day holiday for Thanksgiving. When I came home, my computer was ready, so I hooked up my computer into the DVI slot (my 360 is in the VGA slot), and booted up.
Now here is the problem. The monitor has power and shows its blue LED light (if it has no signal it has an amber LED), but there is only an image on the screen for a second, if that. After the image disappears, the monitor shows nothing at all. The screen looks as if the monitor is simply off, but the blue LED is still on. So, since there is no screen, I cannot even access the menu options to change the settings.
I am wondering if there is anyway to fix this myself, or if I should just take the monitor back to the store.
