Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor
The Dell 2001FP started switching between input modes at random without
any buttons being pushed. For a while I could change it back to the
desired mode, but now it's stuck on one input mode (3: S-Video) and
won't allow selection. The buttons on the control board make a nice
click but will not change mode nor open menu.
At power-on the screen shows the Dell UltraSharp welcome message, but then goes blank. If I press the input mode button and the menu button together the screen shows me the message saying 'No input signal'. The screen never gives the floating 4-color self-test box.
Strangely, two input mode lights are illuminated (both 3: S-Video and 4:Composite) instead of just one as you'd expect
This happens regardless of whether or not it is connected to any video cables.

Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.
If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.

For this issue you might reconsider focusing on your CPU Tower, the way you're describing the issue, the monitor losses it connection from the computer, therefore showing the "analog input..." This is a power saving feature of your monitor. This means that the monitor is no longer a signal from your computer. Possible points of failure for this one could be, PSU, memory, motherboard or add on video card if you have one installed, best approach i could suggest is to run diagnostics- if your still able to boot the computer - Try powering up the computer, when you see the Dell logo tap F12 several times until you see some options then look for diagnostics, then run it..(this is for a DELL pc) if it fails then a possible hardware issue, if your pc still have warranty, call in for help.
Hope it helps!
