I'v had this monitor for 7 years now everything has worked great but now i think its done for. The green light by the power button is now a dim red and only when I have it hooked up to the tower (if not hooked up it turns black). The screen remains black all the times I just wanted to know if its cooked and if I should get a new one or if I put a little time into it can I make it come back to life.

If this is an over head, all in one dvd player, well,if the player works and the sound, and the dome lights...it has power. The issue may reside with the monitor being disconnected (ribbon cable) or the monitor is done.
a blinking green light usually indicates no video signal. check your cables, and if you have another computer, try it on that. otherwise, carefully check your vga signal cable, and the connections on the neck board [where the crt plugs into]
Do you have a second monitor or can you borrow one to check if the fault lies with the monitor or the PC?
If the monitor is at fault then there is not much you can do yourself. I suggest you contact Dell and get them to replace it under warranty. Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly, at least they do in the UK.
I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
