Pinestch, Hi, 12fixlouie here. Good going. At least you were smart enough to prove pc not at fault! If E172 had a nice, crisp, bright, colorful display before the "black screen of death" appeared on your old cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit lcd monitor, you may just want to pay a visit to YOUTUBE!!! Watch some DIY lcd monitor repair video clips to see if you can attempt an internal investigation/repair of the CCFL inverter circuit or the main switch-mode-power-supply. Probable cause of "BSOD" symptom is failed electrolytic filter capacitors and/or a "thermally fractured" solder connection of a component to the circuit board. You and only you will be the one to decide what to do about E172 unit. If repair is option you choose, then here is cost berakdown. 1. DIY is $20 or less + your time! 2. Contract out repair for $35 to $65 plus parts. Do some reading in the FIXYA PROFILES of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" and all the other CCFL monitor tech's here at fixya. Do some reading and surfing. This problem is not new one. Many thousands of inverters fail each year!!! Just remember to let us know what you will do with additional comment to this response after you do your research. 12fixlouie

Your monitor most likely has a problem on the high voltage inverter circuit board, internally located in the monitor. They are prone to having capacitors that fail, and that causes the problem you are experiencing.. Often it is beyond economical repair, as a new monitor is a better investment.
