Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
My 3 year old Dell monitor goes blank after the computer has been on for awhile. The green light is still on. Moving the mouse, clicking enter, tapping the space-bar do not make the screen come back. Sometimes if I power off the whole computer and turn it back on, the screen will come back. Uninstalled and re-installed the video drivers, replaced the cord between the monitor and tower.... now what? Hopefull I'll get an answer before the screen goes black again!!! Eeek!
Had the sam problem and just unplugged the monitor itself "from power source" and plugged back in...problem solved.

Try one thing this will tell you if there is a problem with the monitor or the system
start the system and go in to bios and than check out if u still loose display
and if yes than when u loose display disconnect the data cable of the monitor from the system and chk out if u see the self test on the monitor or not
the self test if the colour patern if u see that its nothing wrong with the monitor its ur system
if u do not see the colour patern ... monitor bad
if the colour patern is seen reseat the cpu heatsink , remove the display card (if any add on display card ) and reseat the memory cards
and if that doesnt work remove all the add on cards and than start the system on the onboard display
and than put the cards one by one u will get the culprit

Have you tried connecting that monitor to another PC. It sounds like you may have a problem with the monitor itself (component failure, heat problem, etc)
