    Dell Optiplex 755 Monitor Won't Come out of Powersave

    Well the monitor just won't display anything, seen this now on a few Dell's, the orange light stays on when you turn on the PC and the monitor thinks it's in standby mode. If I plug in a different monitor it works fine, if I plug something else into the original monitor, it displays fine. The two just don't seem to like each other. If it try pressing the monitor menu button, the message says to press the power button or any key on the keyboard, but this of course doesn't work, else I wouldn't be posting about it

    Anyone got any ideas as to why they won't talk?

    Yeah that was my original thought, but I've tried two others that are working fine but they give the same results.

    It's been in school for about 3 months working quite happily, then all of a sudden it just stopped.

    All Dell monitors have 1 year's warranty...give em a call and they will swap it out. Just be persistent with them and say you have tried everything!

    Still under warranty then, I would just get them to replace it as it will probably be quicker than figuring out if the fault is fixable.
