Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
The power light flashes green and clearly the monitor has juice and the proper power as the home screen looks right if just for a second. Then it turns black and I can't get it to work again. I was hitting the side of it for a couple weeks and it would power on no problem but now it wont ever get past this initial freak out. this sounds like a common issue? help!
I had the same problem... someone somewhere on this site suggested to turn the brightness down to <57%. Took me ages to do as the monitor is only a couple of seconds on. So basically tried it blind with the monitor function buttons and when I was less than 69% suddenly it worked... I have now my own theories why I run into monitor problems: AOL latest updated prompted me to change the desktop resolution setting to 1024 x 768 pixels, 32 bit which is theoretically possible but puts an electrical strain on the conduits... I've now changed it to a medium setting of 960 x 720 pixels, 32 bit which is still o.k. and the maxium brightness on the monitor to 56%. As I say, it took me ages to figure it out: at least I got around driver updates or even purchasing a new monitor... Good luck to you, mate. Hope this helps to you or anyone else who has the same problem. SpeedySpod
