The power supply board is on the verge of failing, the cause is often a bad capacitor that opens, in some cases there may be more than one involved, leaving a bulge at the top leaking it's contents making it easier to nail down.
Hello Paul, hi, to change the resolution, simply right click the desktop wall paper, properties settings then screen resolution you want. Hope this is what your are looking for. If this is not it, you may need the VGA driver CD. this CD will install the CORRECT resolution of your monitor.
johnerm, Good going John! At least YOU tried doing a swapout to another KNOWN GOOD pc to prove out that the E153FP is indeed the culprit!!! Now for the hard part. Do you have a bright flashlight? Reconnect E153FP to pc with WIN-desktop as the displayed image. then and only then turn on E153FP and note the time it takes to GO TO BLACK SCREEN. Is it 1, 2, --5,---20 seconds???? Now point at different angels about 1 inch from screen a bright flashlight to an area that "should" have a desktop "icon" showing. LOOK very closely!! If you SEE a very faint image of the desktop the units "switch-mode-power-supply" is in PARTIAL SHUTDOWN mode. (still has +5v or +3.3v to supply vga/lcd interface board) If you SEE NOTHING, then SMPS is in FULL SHUTDOWN mode. Get back to me, 12fixlouie with your SMPS flashlight evaluation and pay a visit to YOUTUBE fyi search and view video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to see if DIY interests you!

By going to Dell.com I was able to pull up the user guide for the E153FP and read the specs to determine that the monitor has a screen resolution of 1024x768. The previous monitor had a higher resolution and this is why the E153FP would not display correctly.
Thanks for your response to my posting.
Can you use it?If you can the internal power supply might be going or the inverter board.One way to confirm this is listen closely to the monitor if you hear a sound almost like tin foil in the wind the internal power supply is going,if not you are good.However If you can go into the menu of the monitor try doing a factory reset.This may fix it.
generally dell monitors open from the bottom they have slight indented flat spaces for a small flat head screw driver to twist and pop the frame apart I start on the bottom left and work my way right and then open the sides carefully and last the top. Please rate if helpful
The front and rear of the case is held together with latch and hook type fasteners, this is how I cracked mine apart.Remove the 4 screws holding the stand on the back of monitor, start with either bottom corners and insert a flat head screwdriver or similar soft object such as a wooden popcicle stick into the crack and work your way up the side to the top, then across the bottom, and up other side to top, I then ease the case apart at the top with no effort.
