I have TWO AL2017A monitors which is not powering up when the power on button is depressed. At times I can see a faint Amber LED next to the Power On button, but that turns off after about 3-5 minutes. The monitor was working very well on a Windows XP OS, but started acting strange after I connected it to a Windows 7 system. I suspect that the unit is in some sort of 'power saver' mode and i can not get it out of that mode.
. I have connected this monitor to an XP OS with both the VGA and the DVID cables = No change.
. I have power the monitor on with the video cables installed and removed = No change.
. Some times if I remove the AC plug and wait for about 30 seconds and reconnect, a bright AMBER LED will
turn on, but this happens very rarely.
NOTE: I am currently testing these monitors on a Dell GX620 running Windows XP.
?Is there some some way to reset this monitor to factor defaults so that i can use this on my Windows XP system?
?Can these types of Monitors be reset?
?Is it worth trying to fix these model of monitors?
?Should I just trash these?
Inuring minds would like to know.
