Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Screen goes off but the power is still on - Dell E310

\015 Dell E310 PC Specs P4 2.8GHz 80GB of stortage and 512MB of RAM and a Nvidia FX 5200 graphics card...\015\012\015\012Basically the screen goes off, even though the power is on (green button still green) but I can get the image to return if I switch the monitor on and off... The problem first started when I took my PC to go get repaired and when I got it back after about a week this started happening. I used to get around the screen going off by turning it on and off for about 30 mins and eventually the screen would stay on... but this no longer happens. I tryed my PC at the repair shop and even that monitor had the same problem but the guy claimed to have fixed it after he altered the resolution but this proved to be a temporary fix, I never mess around with resolution so I don't quite understand how this could be the problem.\015\012\015\012Problems I have identified that could be the cause are the Driver being out of date or corrupted, Solder melted so the screen is not connected properly, something to do with the RAM, wrong power settings (voltage etc) and possibly something to do with the resolution (although I doubt it)\015\012\015\012I have tryed changing the resolution and booting in VGA mode, reinstalling the driver, updating the driver and scanning my computer.\015\012\015\012\015\012I have a Laptop anyway but this problem has been bugging me for a while, I might just buy a new desktop but I would prefer to have this fixed at least for the next couple of months, any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

I can tell you that the guy at the repair place is an IDIOT
resolution would have nothing to do with it
could be something to do with your power sittings
try the options for power saveing from the monitors menu
if thats isnt he probelem it could be hardware
Because dell lock their bios your graphics card cant be overclocked
so it probibly isnt wrong voltage either
corrupt drivers wouldn't be fixed by flicking the monitor on and off nor would a shortage of ram
could be a worm some can get past even the best anti-virus software
best bet is to take it back to the repair shop and shout at the idiot who "fixed" it
