    The power light start out green then after about a second gives one long orange flash followed by three short orange flashes. The problem occurred in a similar way to the post to which this question is attached in that the computer was moved several thousand miles. It sort of started up with something on the monitor but would not bot in the normal way. I thought is might be the small lithium battery and replaced it. No joy. I removed and replaced the RAM still not working other than the flashing power button. Suggestions please?

If the Monitor Power is flashing then there is no data signal reachign it from your CPU.If you are bale to, open the CPU, remove the memory chip RAM and re insert it. Be careful not to disturb anything els and ensure the memory is properly reinserted. If you are in doubt get someone qualified to do it for you

Take a look behind the computer. If there is more than one monitor port, try plugging the monitor into the other one. Also, certain monitor cards are notorious for not staying in the slot if you move the plug from the monitor around, or even unscrew it. My best bet is that if you open the case (turn off and pull the power plug first, then touch the frame to release static, you'll see that the back of the card is pulled up a little, exposing the connectors on the bottom. Pull the card all of the way out and reseat it into the slot. If the card was not connected before it should be now. Good luck.

Flashing green power light - Black screen

I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Stuck in power saver

Try the unlock procedure: With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets. If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages? Is the power indicator light on? If so, what color is it? Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\ If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it? If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting. Good luck... And let me know. Bill
