Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor
When system is shut down, the monitor flashes different colors. Full screen goes from red to green to yellow to white, etc. The monitor power button does not work, I have to pull the power cord to make it stop. If the system is powered up, all is ok. Dell warranty expired less than 1 month ago. . .of course.
Reset factory settings. Push the selection button (second button from the left at the bottom of the monitor, next to the AUTO button), then go the the Factory Reset by pressing the minus button. Press the selection button again, and when it asks if you want to reset say YES by using the minus button. It's a quick fix!

Go into your monitors settings and select "Factory Reset" Then go to "Factory" and you will find the burn in setting.

If you can find a setting for DDC/DI and turn that OFF, this could solve your problem (it did for me).
Description of the setting is included below, but put simply it allows your monitor to communicate with your computer and make adjustments.
From wiki: The Display Data Channel or DDC is a collection of digital communication protocols between a computer display and a graphics adapter that enables the display to communicate its supporteddisplay modes to the adapter and to enable the computer host to adjust monitor parameters, such as brightness and contrast.
