Re: screen prob.

For flat panel systems there are 2 inputs. DVI using the white cable and VGA. by default flat panels are set to DVI input. hit the menu button on the screen and there should be an option there to change the input video. if this will not work it could be a problem on the video port on your acer computer or it could you might need a new VGA cable.

Dell E172FP 17 monitor keeps blinking

That sounds like the backlight inverter board. Check ebay for the board or a repair kit for it.

Blinking monitor power button and flashing image

I buy and sell these monitors (Dell E17FP) the problem is with the transisters (Q739, Q740, Q759, Q760) they short out and the monitor will just blink on and off. You have to desolder them and test them with a simple battery and light circuit. The reason they blow is because of the dirty solder joints by the transformers. If only on pair of backlights work the problem maybe transisters Q751, Q743. I home this answers your questions.
