Top 20 Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

Take the RAM out to be sure that is not causing the issue. If it is then make sure it is seated right and is the right kind and try again. If the video card is not initializing that would cause the monitor to not work.

The fine print says it should work. Real life might be different. Do you have a genius bar, found at Apple stores, anywhere close? If so, make an appointment and let them make the connection for you. The genius bar is a free service and I've never found anything that they haven't been able to fix...and fix it quickly...if it's fixable.

I will admit, have never seen you monitor before. But looked up in Google and found this. Hope this helps.

1 Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Then a menu should appear...
2 Press and hold it until it is over AUTO. Then tap the button once.

Let us know if it helps. It would not break your monitor to do the above. But be patient and follow the above simple procedures. This could help others same as you.

check all connections. then separate the wiring so it doesn't touch. sometimes the cross-talk caused by wires touching can reroute the signals. good luck.

If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.
