Question about LG Flatron L1710S 17" LCD Monitor
When I boot up my computer & turn monitor on the indicator light on the monitor turns from inital green colour to amber and I only get an on screen message of "power saving mode". There is no image of the computer booting up or XP starting, just black screen. It was working fine one minute and then after shuting down and then re-booting not long after I encountered the problem.
Check vga cable! check also video card on the pc!

Sometimes an old driver for this monitor will mistakenly believe it can
display a higher resolution - and so it goes out of range when things
Step one - if you can, connect to another monitor, or your tv, with both old and new hardware installed and simply download and install the new driver.
If that doesn't work, boot into safe mode (it naturally sets a lower resolution).
And when all else fails.... Best trick I've found is to clear your CMOS (reset your BIOS) and, oddly, plug in a different keyboard to a different port and hold delete when you boot. If you need to repeat, change keyboards again. (make sure you hold the delete key down before you even plug the computer back in and it should work fine.) Also, for those unfamiliar with resetting their BIOS, write down your settings first, or ask a friend.
G'luck! Took me some research but I eventually made mine behave. :)
