Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor
I was changing cursor when monitor went black and in Power Save Mode.
Have tried all the safe things i can think of.
Like checking cables, moving mouse and clicking it and hitting keys on thr keyboard.
Tried hitting F8 at startup to try get it to start in SAFE mode but monitor remained black.
This is flustrating.
This monitor i got 6 months ago...it replaced my old one that was ruined an got this one by warranty.
The inverter power logic is probably going bad. You can get it here as well as look at instructional videos on DELL monitors.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.
Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).
