Sounds like capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and check for any swolen Caps.

To your problem number 1:

I would check to see what the refresh rate is on your main monitor. Especially after waking the monitor from sleep, Windows tend to forget the refresh rate settings on secondary monitor and set it to the same as your main monitor. If your main monitor is set at 75hz or something, it could cause the secondary monitor to display the "out of range" message. When you reset the "extend my desktop to this monitor" setting, it probably resets the refresh rate to 60hz again.

This can sometime be remedied by checking to see if the monitor drivers are installed correctly. A lot of times the video card driver also gets in the way. I've had a lot of experiences with ATI drivers behaving very sporadically with multi-monitor setups, where they will consistently change to "plug-n-play monitor" and thus reverting any custom setting I have.

As to your problem #2:

I've had a fair bit of experience with this as well. The fact that the line shows the same way regardless of the monitor's own tilting orientation, means the error is probably coming from the video card signal rather than the LCD panel itself. This usually is a foresight of a nVidia card that's about to break.

I've went through many, many nVidia video cards over the years. They all inevitably break over time, probably because nVidia relies strictly on third party vendors... and to stay price competitive the third party vendors cut corners wherever they can. I always get the same horizontal line error over time as you described here.

The only way to know for sure, is to get a replacement video card, borrow one from a friend if you can, and see if the same problem still comes up. It's very possible for this to show up on only one of your two monitors. Try switching the monitor output as well, to see if the line now shows up on the other monitor instead.

Your monitor has a bad power supply board. This happens often on LCD monitors because of the heat buildup in them. If you can solder them go to our web site at: We have a step by step dis-assembly and repair guide for your monitor. There are several versions of the E173FP some end in b , f, or c so be sure to check your monitor.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Dell 1503FP works, but won't start up again for a few hours

Hello there.
Seems like electronics pack up but try an old one. disconnect all the data cables from your monitor side(HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, USB etc.) or computer side if the ones on display are built-in. Leave only the power cable. Unplug the monitor`s power cable. Press the POWER button on the front of the display and keep it pressed for 45 secs. Plug everything back and give it a try.
Good luck.

Speakers killed my moniter

Well as you have already tried disconnecting the peripherals from your computer, and tried restarting the computer too which did not help you, it sounds to be an hardware issue with the monitor. However if incase you have not tried this, you can disconnect the monitor completely from the tower, power on the monitor, if it powers on and you get a message as no signal, your monitor is working good. If not replace the monitor. If the message appears on the monitor screen, disconnect everything from the tower, push and hold the power button on the tower for a minute. Connect just the monitor and check for any display. If you do get display, thats good, connect one device at a time and check to see if the display appears.

If theres no display with just the monitor connected, the issue would be with the graphics card. You may need to replace it or get the system repaired.

Monitor goes black, with ghost lines of white. unplug and replug sometimes works sometimes does'nt. it's almost like it's burn out, or blown. pounding on the top works great, it comes right back on. this...

Its more or less your monitor has gone bad.
To check the same , unplug the monitor from the computer , a slef test feature check would be displayed . Check if the monitor goes blank or shows ghost lines . If yes the monitor is bad. If you have got the system before 12 Dec 2005 its generaly covered under 3 yrs warranty.If purchased after that , it would have your system warranty
