Having problems with your Dell Computer Monitors ?

Lost power to 3 of my 4 monitors

\015 I have a four monitor setup running off one computer. I am using an ATI FireMV 2400 pci video card. I just lost power to all screens. I rebooted the system and now only have one screen operating and the other three screens do not have power. The display properties settings seem fine. But no power to three screens and all power cords are connected and video connections are fine. Any ideas how to repair? Is there some of type of reset button?..The monitors are Dell 2001FP\015

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012There is one option by which you can check if this is a power issue or a power source issue.
\015\012Remove the power cable (End connected to the monitor) from the working monitor and connect it to the monitors which are not working one by one, it its comming up when you connect this, then the problem can be narrowed down to either the power cable or the power source of the other 4 monitors (the socket where you have connected the other 4 monitors).
\015\012
\015\012If you have any surge protectors inbetween the wall socket and the monitor, remove them and connect the power cable directly to the wall socket for testing. it this works then you have to send the surge protector for replacement or get a new surge protector.
\015\012
\015\012More over, when you refer no power, do you mean no display and no light on the monitor or is it no display and amber or green light.
