You need to figure out why it wasn't balanced properly. Was it not sitting on the stand correctly? Have you attached things to it (like a screen to reduce glare) that might make it heavier on one side / front / back?

If it is definitely heavier at one side (or at the front or back), you might consider propping it up with a few large books - dictionaries are good. Or if you have a desk with a strong frame, you could attach it to the frame with a few bungee cords, stretched in various directions so that there's no single direction of force working on the monitor.

By the way, good catch! With responses like that you could become an international athlete!

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.


Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

It sounds like the internal bulb in your monitor is going out. Some LCD monitors go through a slight warm-up period but it should not be 5-10 minutes. You may want to change your Power Saving settings to prevent from going into standby. Here's how:

Right-click in an open space on your desktop
Choose Properties
Click the Screen Saver tab
Down at the bottom look for the Power settings
Change the Monitor Standby to NEVER
Click OK

Good luck!!
