I ran into this very problem myself, the issue is that the monitor only supports 1280x1024 resolution MAX. Windows 7 cannot detect this monitor and so it does not know it is limited to this resolution, so Windows 7 is putting out a higher resolution at startup, thus the monitor tries to autodect for a second but then just goes blank because it doesn't understand (and can't display) the signal. The only solution is to use another monitor and adjust the resolution to 1280x1024 or lower, but I run into a problem where as soon as you remove the other monitor and restart, WIndows tries to "plug & play" the monitor all over again at startup. So you're best bet really is a newer monitor unfortunately, I only use my old Norcent monitor with my XP computer.
I have run into this issue a couple times recently with this exact model & a handfull of other various Monitor's , http://www.filefactory.com/file/cbc1b15/n/ADIMonitorV97.zip , here is a link to the drivers I used on Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium , I installed using compatibility mode ( right click the .exe , select properties from the drop down menu , select the compatibility tab , select run in " windows xp sp2 " mode & check the box at the bottom " run as administrator " . Also you might want to disable " UAC " ( open the control panel , select users , select change UAC settings , drag the slider all the way down to disable , then click apply & reboot your pc for it to take effect .
Then look for the driver for your monitor. You will see that the driver only lists versions of the Vista O/S as those that will work with the driver. When XP is not able to load the correct driver the system will identify and load the driver as a Plug & Play Monitor. This means that you will be able to get some functionality out of your monitor. but you will not be able to get all of the resolutions that the monitor is capable of running. If you just purchased the monitor and were told that it will work correctly with XP, you may want to take it back to the dealer you bought it from. Failing that you will either have to upgrade your O/S, or give up some of the functionality of the monitor.

Try going to the Dell or Microsoft Websites and loading a new display driver for Windows 7. When I first got Windows 7, both my monitor and printers required new drivers for Windows 7. It seems that Vista and XP drivers for a lot of things don't work on Win 7.
Doesn't really sound like the monitor is the cause. The video driver sounds like it might be failing on load. You can try starting in safe mode, open device manager and remove the video card from the hardware list (You can also do this with add and remove hardware in the control panel of XP). Restart and let windows install fresh drivers on start up. This may help if the driver installation has been corrupted. Note that you will need the original driver disk if you want the extended options of your video card, otherwise windows will install the generic windows driver which in some cases is no different from the factory driver.
Hi there, my name is Alex and I am here to help solve your problem.
When adding a new monitor to your computer, it is not necessary to install the monitors drivers as it should detect 'Plug and Play monitor' and will install the monitors drivers automatically. Are you getting any error messages?
If you have any questions or needing further assistance, then please contact me.
After searching and searching I get the same reply, it is NOT conpatable with win xp. There are no drivers for this monitor that will work with win xp. I beleave that this monitor has drivers for win 95 only??? Not positave but its all i came up with.
