    I know, but before, it would go to sleep. The light by the power button would turn orange and the monitor wouldn't flash colors.

That's what it's supposed to do. This is the monitor test to let you know that the monitor is working but it's not receiving a video signal.

    Hmmm....some monitors act in different ways. So the monitor no longer goes to sleep after flashing the colors, it just continues to do so until you turn off the monitor? You can try emailing their support team I hear they are very good about answering your questions and all. It sounds to me that the mechanism that tells the monitor to go to sleep has failed.

My MD7317 did the same thing until I actually installed the driver for it. My windows did not have the correct driver in it's driver base, so I found the driver online ( took a few minutes of searching) and within a few minutes of installation the monitor displayed a great colorful picture. Naturally, I had to use another monitor while I was searching. Driver is about 3.3 megs. It came in a zip format. I did not keep track of the link to driver, but it omly took a few minutes to locate it.
