Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 Intel Desktop PC - Intel Pentium 4 2GHz, 256MB DDR, 40GB HDD, CD-ROM, Windows XP ?

Monitor light goes to orange & stays there.Stuck in power save.

\015 DELL monitor E196FP-f purchased in late 2005. Green light on monitor immediately goes to orange. Even hitting power save button useless because message suggesting hit any key is futile, hit any of the keys and nothing happens. Have already plugged and unplugged cables and juice several times. DELL test bars come up, but then nothing. Opened PC brain and dusted video card and reinserted video card, and after booting up again. Still no luck. Now desperate. julio57\015

Hi, Robin.

Usually a green to orange light means that the monitor is not getting activity from the PC.

Wiggle the monitor's cable (VGA cable) to see if any difference. The VGA cable could be faulty.

To narrow down whether the problem for certain is the monitor or the computer, connect another monitor to the computer. If it works, your Dell monitor is faulty and needs to be replaced. If it doesn't work, the computer is problematic.

Some suggestions if the computer is problematic:

1. VGA video card needs replacement.
2. Memory could be faulty or need reseating (remove and reinsert). Try one memory module at a time to test.

Hope this helps.
