Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Hi! Most modern monitors have on/off switches that are NOT actual power controlling devices. (i.e. they simply tell an IC chip to cut power to the display section while leaving the rest of the power supply energized.) In the earlier monitors, when you flipped that power switch, you actually cut AC power to the whole unit. Now, with today's faster computers, LCD and plasma displays, instant-on is the norm. Regardless if the button is physically damaged(usually pressed too hard) or the circuit is defective, unless you are a tech you'll have to take the unit in for repair. Is the monitor under any type of warranty? Was there a storm recently? Do you use a surge protector? If the display was damaged at all by the storm, there is a very good chance you'll be covered by the surge protector warranty.(that's what you paid for)---hope I was of assistance---Rick
