Most of the time my F-series 17" LCD Monitor will not turn on, or not turn off. I have had the monitor for about a year and a half with no other problems. A couple of months ago it started acting up. If I turn the monitor off, it will take a couple of days to turn back on. When it does, the LCD light is green and everything is fine until I need to turn it off, and it won't. It takes another couple of days to turn off. What is my problem?

if the monitor fails on 2 PCs the monitor has hardware issues, does it? costs not a dime to plug it into friends PC with vga cable. you said IT Shuts off,? does that mean. the power button, has 3 colors, led status off black led. on green led. amber led, sleep. is it light going out? or just a screen black, if just screen black does OSD work on demand yes, no? if yes the monitor is not dead.(not totally) if no it is dead.
seems your PSU board inside if bad, if the monitor goes dead. Old monitors 2000-2007 had sleep timer. disable that junk now.
seems it is a bad monitor, but id have to see it and do many tests to condemn it. Most of these monitors died long ago. CCFL deathh(sic). The first ones made in 2005 so is 13 years old. Nevers seen one this old good. CCFL failures are classic and super COMMMON.: dead, blinking (strobing effects) yellow for white screens dim
If the monitor is connected to a DVI output on your computer try to connect it to the VGA to see if it's an issue with the input or if the monitor is shot. It sounds like your monitor just crapped out.
The inverter board that controls the lighting on the screen is dying. since its a 5 year old monitor and only a 17 inch. the cost to repair is greater than the cost of buying a new one. unless you know how to replace the part yourself. I think its best to just buy a new monitor
your monitor got a hardware problem:
1) the LVDS controler board out of work, only change or repair it could be fixed.
2) if you can see some show like smaller signal detect windows in the centre of screen a very short time (bright flashing one time), this is inverter board damaged or worn lamps, thay all need repair or replace
hope give you some idea. please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!
can you test your monitor on another computer to verify the monitor is at fault? If the monitor is at fault its time for a new one, factory warranties on monitors are usually 1 year unless you purchased an extended warranty.Otherwise repair is usually more costly than buying a new one.
doubtful this is a driver issue warm up is not needed for any monitor. this is a power board issue internal to the monitor capacitors or some issue on the main power board. let me kow what you will do. good luck.
