Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Dell Optiplex GX520 PC - monitor goes off after a couple of sec

\015 I have a Dell Optiplex GX520 PC and, last week after turning on my computer, the monitor started flashing and then went black but, the power was still on. if i turn it off and back on again the image reapear for only a couple of seconds and then goes black again. i have a good anti virus but, as i was reading other comments, i believe it could be a worm or virus as i get into websites that could be full of junk. If the problem is virus/worm related, are there any solutions for this? can i do something myself or do i have to take it to someone? many thanks\015

Answers :

What exactly is the image you see?
is it the bios loading?
when you say the power is still on...
is the power for the monitor on in a)stand by mode ? (usually yellow/orange light) or b) operation mode (usually green light)
what happens to the cpu? is it running properly with all power lights and hdd lights (red blinking light usually) on? or it shuts down as well?
If your CPU tower is on, are the keyboard's numlock/capslock/scroll lock lights on? Try pushing these buttons to see if the correspondent lights in the keyboard are working fine.

could be for:
a boot sector virus (low probability)
a wrong / corrupted ram chip.

Would be helpful if you could provide some more information or call in an engineer.

Hate to say it but i have the same problem with my monitor. The olny way i can get iot to turn on is to unplug the lead from the monitor wait 10 sec for the computer to get past its POST checks plug it back in wait for windows to load and walla you will have a very poor resolution. I know its not a complete fix but should keep you computing till you get a new monitor.
