I have a Dell 19" Monitor, I recently have run into a problem where it takes my monitor 30minutes to an hour to "warm up" before receiving a signal. This only has started happening over the past couple of days and think it might have been from the recent freak electrical winter storm that we got. The power was knocked out a couple times that night. The cpu works fine but there seems to be possibly a fuse issue with the monitor. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not too sure about dell pc's.But if you think a fuse might be inside there,I'd try to do a search online for how to change that and go from there.However,I'm not really understanding the warm up thing.Is it an LCD screen?

Right click on an empty area (not on an Icon) of your desk
top and select properties.
Select the Screen Saver tab.
Click on the Power button in the lower right corner.
Use the Turn off monitor: pull down menu and select
never. You may want to set the other parameters to Always On for Power schemes
and never for System standby: to never. I set my power scheme to the
above settings, since I work with photos and graphics and the color will change
as the monitor warms up.
you talk about a dell monitor but categorised under LG monitor...
if it's a Dell monitor, and its recent, it's possible you've put it in analog/digital mode when you need the other mode.
push the left button on te front of your screen that should switch your screen from digital to analog or vice versa
well i have a dell 22'' monitor and it did exactly the same thing , turns out its a fault with the invertor drive transistors ( these power the fluro screen light ) , i'm in the uk , but i would take it straight back to walmart along with proof of purchase and tell them it dont work and ask for a repair /replacement under warranty
This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor, especially the Dell 19". If it started taking longer and longer todisplay an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that'smost likely the problem.You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computeror the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. Ifit's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boardsfor many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The boardcan run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is,and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to justreplace it with a gently used one from ebay.
try to reconnect the cables to ensure it's properly plugged in (if you have another monitor, you can try it to ensure that your system is running properly)
If you narrow it down to a monitor problem, it's most likely the inverter/power supply board in the monitor.
If it's covered under warranty, you can send it back to Dell and they should send you a refurbed unit. If not, the board can be as expensive as finding a decent used monitor on ebay that works.
The labor rate in the midwest where I live is $50 just to look at it. Unless you have electronic experience and test equiptment, I do not believe you wil be ableo to service it yourself.Usually cheeper just to buy another replacement one.
The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor. It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short). Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works. CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT. 17'' start at $120
