Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
Ok, this is kind of tricky to describe... here goes.
The monitor was working fine then all the sudden when I turned it back on the screen had green bars running vertically on the screen (kind of looked like bars on a window). Then in a span of 15 to 30 seconds the screen gets really fuzzy and progressively washes out to a white color. It is like the color is going away one pixel at a time. When I turn it off and back on it refocuses itself to a quasi-clear state and then does the same thing again. At times there was a rainbowish ring in the upper left quadrant of the screen.
Thats the best I can do any assistance would be awesome!
Not a happy machine...
1. Check in systems manager, device manager, to see that the monitor is clean, with no ? mark or ! point.
2. Reinstall drivers..
3. check all connections to monitor for fit. Unplug and check the connectors for grit or crud.
4. Get a new monitor.
