A workmate of mine has a Dell 1703FPs LCD Monitor. You push the "on button" & the screen comes on for about six seconds, then justs shuts down again. We have tried it on another similar computer but still the same result. Any Ideas!! Cheers!

I've had it unplugged from the computer, & tested the Monitor independently, i.e.just with the Monitor power supply plugged in. Press the on button, button LED shows green, screen displays Blue, Red, Green boxes which move around screen for about 6 seconds, screen then goes blank, Green LED still showing in on/off button.
Your problem is the resolution of the monitor does not match the computer and the monitor for some reason cannot adjust itself. (a common problem I run into) Plug an older CRT monitor into your computer. Reset the resolution to the lowest setting, to do this, right click on the desktop, go to properties, settings, save you changes. Then plug in your new monitor, and reajust your resolution how you want it. Robert
