Monitors power systems gone bad

I have had two monitors go bad within the last month. The first refuses to power up at all, it was 9 months old when this occurred. I bought a replacement and after one month of use it starts to come on, but then powers down immediately. It seems like far too great a coincidence, so my question is what could be causing this and what can I do to keep it from happening again? Better surge protector? HELP!

This may be way off but, is the power supply on your tower set to 115v as opposed to 230v?

Also, try the monitor with a video card you know is GOOD.
If you paid 9.95 for your surge protector you did not pay enough (try a new one just for fun- spend $30).

Additional: there does exist something called "dirty power" that can ruin electronics but not sure of how to detect it....
Hope this helped some......
