Question about Dell E151FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
One of my customers had the same problem. So last night, I took it apart and found a cold solder connection on a coil that had white goop on it. Goop is usually put on coils to stop oscillations. This is probably an inherrant problem. If you tap the back of the monitor with the back of a screwdrive, it should start working for awhile. Take it apart and take the shield off and do the same till you find the loose component. Don't hit it too hard. When you find the loose component. If you move the component back and and forth, it should work and not work. Take the board off and re-solder the component. Put the board back on and tap it lightly and see if you got the right component. If not repeat the proceedure until it works or pitch it...

I have the same problem too with exactly the same model of Dell Monitor. Looks like a problem with this model.
