    I only have the switch off problem in relation to some games. In normal use - no problem.

    Typically, 10 or so minutes into a game (eg Brothers in Arms or GTA) the monitor switches off. LED goes out. By serially switching on again (& again) video will resume for another 5/10 mins. Then I give up. Didn't use to happen & Flight Simulator seems OK! Mystery! Will try refresh rate/ res solution suggested by Silly Girl!

Try changing refresh rate or resolution. You might be using one that your screen can't work with. good luck

    Either that or a bad power supply.

Monitor works sometimes and sometimes not

Reboot pc until you have a picture, then try updating the drivers for the monitor and your gpu if applicable, outdated drivers can cause erratic and intermittent behavior. Navigation to drivers access varies slightly based on operating system.

Monitor does not switch on every time.


SOMETIMES it's the POWER SWITCH itself! Spray it with contact cleaner ~ WITH silicone...

Power transistors get QUITE hot in the power supply itself... double-check those joints!

The eraser-end of a PENCIL is a great tool for 'tapping around' for "sensitive" areas.

Have you tried a can of FREEZE SPRAY with a THIN/LONG nozzle? It's great for spot-testing...

SUSPECT larger resistors with CAPS at the ends... a WONDERFUL source of intermittent(s)!

LAST choice ~ a TV shop.

Dell E173FP - After sometime the screen switches off

Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues. So I would also appreciate any solutions!
