Monitor won't stay on.

Hello everyone, I'm here to ask a silly question. I'm by no means what somebody would consider 'technologically inclined', and I'm sure that my issue probably has a very simple solution. I just purchased a second-hand PC from a reputable seller, and for some strange reason, the monitor won't stay on for more than five seconds. It shows a quick image of the Windows logon screen, then a message saying " 1:Auto-Detect (Analog)" shows and the screen goes back to black. I've tried opening the settings on the monitor, but it won't stay open long enough to do so. Any suggestions?

RE: Monitor won't stay on.

* What is the monitor model?
* What is the computer model?
* What is the video card?
* What video out ports are on the video card? (VGA/DVI/HDMI/DP/mDP)
* What operating system is installed on the computer?

* List all monitor cables and adapters attached to the computer and the ports they are using. For example =
Computer video card GTX 1080 DP out port --> DP to mDP cable --> U2414H mDP in port
