Had this monitor for around 3-4 years. The problem is that it keeps 'shutting off'. The power light is still green but there is no image at all and if I turn it off then on again it will be ok for between 3 secs to 10 mins. I have all power options set at 'never turn off', the power supply should be fine, all plugs in properly etc.
Is this just old age & time for a new one?

This is a problem with the power supply unit inside the monitor, there is no easy way out here. If you keep on using your monitor like this eventually it won't switch on no matter how long you wait. Keep on using it like this for the time being without switching off anything but ultimately you will have to take it in for repairs or otherwise purchase a new screen..
Do you have a second monitor or can you borrow one to check if the fault lies with the monitor or the PC?
If the monitor is at fault then there is not much you can do yourself. I suggest you contact Dell and get them to replace it under warranty. Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly, at least they do in the UK.
