Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor
When I start up my computer the monitor won't start. It powers up but remains black. The green on light stays orange. I will turn it on and off many times and it eventually turns on. It acts like it is sleep mode.
Step 1: try using different VGA cable
step2: uninstall and reinstall the monitor driver from the device manager.
step 3: check with different monitor in the house if its not doing the same then take my words that its a monitor problem and the monitor needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: monitor in sleep mode
This problem could be caused by windows or the monitor .You need to hook up your monitor to another computer and see if you get the same response. If you do check and see in the owners manual if there is a control for power management.Find the control and try to adjust it, or turn it off. If all this does not work than you need to take the monitor in for servicing. If the monitor works,you may have a problem with the computer bios or windows itself. Check all power management controls in the bios and window settings and see if you can find the problem.Check the Microsoft website for this problem with your operating system and a solution. Hope this helps.
