SOURCE: Problem in LCD dell Monitor 17"
Check the pins in the monitor cable and the connector in the back of the pc aren't bent. Have you any way of checking the monitor on another pc or laptop to check that it's not faulty. If you have a seperate graphics card (this will be in a seperate slot away from other connections) check that it has not become unseated or push down on it gently, incase you diturbed it on connection. Do you get any beeps on start up?

Pls check the power management properties in device manager to check if the option to wake the computer from sleep for the keyboard and mouse are enabled.
You may also try to change the power plan or create a new power plan and check if you are able to wake the computer from sleep.
If this problem started a few days back, then you may try to do a system restore.

Ok if it the monitor works fine on another unit discount it out of the equation as a monitor problem.
I would suspect the driver on the PC that delivers the problem, especially the video card.
. Check that the cable is also on tightly. remove it and even clean the pins and replug it .the plug on that PC may be dirty
You May need to replace the video card as the communication to the monitor is intermittent and that is why you get the amber light.
Open the box with power off. clean the card if it has a lot of dust on it ( most do and its always a shock) wipe it over ( BOTH SIDES) and then try to start it up as usual with the monitor connected to see if that fixed it ( sometimes works) if not get another card and replace it. Best I can offer without being there to help on the spot.
A new card should allow you access to install and configure it and these days they are pretty cheap to buy

I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

I want you to try something next time this happens, instead of rebooting the computer, just cut power to the monitor. Then switch it back on.
Does the screen come back up?
Comment back and let me know

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your
computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be
able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse
button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with
your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
