Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
In VGA Mode the monitor goes into power saving mode as set under display properties. Using the monitor with the DVI input, it cycles in and out of power saving mode in 1 second intervals at the time set in the display properties (green--amber--green--amber--etc) (screen flashes gray--black--etc). I am thinking that I need to reload the display driver or a bios update. I hate to fool around and cause more problems.
Rip out a toothbrush (without toothpaste of course) or a safe brushing device and brush all of the prongs on the DVI cable. If certain prongs are not contacting the DVI input on the computer it could leave out necessary operations such as screensaving.

Go into your control panel feature. click on the apperance tab. then click on the screen saver tab. you should be able to adjust the time it takes for the hibernation and when the power save and screean saver come on. in your appearance menu you should have option tabs for power save, hibernation,and screensaver. i'm sure you just need to adjust the settings and remember to click the apply tab and then ok..;.please rate this

Please check the cables.
loose input connection may take monitor into power saving mode.
Does the LCD show anything when computer boots?
Please disconnect the DVI input to the LCD and check. If this problem persists, it has nothing to do with BIOS or driver updates.
hope it works,
