    Dell Monitors

    Probably quite a simple one.

    Some of our Dell screens go into standby as they should. Others come up with 'self test feature check' bouncing around the screen. Not only is this annoying, it wastes power because the screen never goes into standby.
    Mine didnt use to do it, but since I changed some monitor settings yesterday it does. Cant see an option to disable this 'feature'

    I have seen this when the monitor has both Digital and analog inputs and the monitor has been set to auto input select.

    ron - its strictly a monitor problem, not the PC

    sysman - yeah thats what it is, but how is it set to auto select? im sure ive changed the inputs before but unless im being thick i cant find it now - theres nothing about it in the OSD

    Not in front of a Dell monitor at the moment but IIRC it's the button with an arrow going into a square. Also holding the menu button for 30 secs will lock the menus.

    I had this with Dell monitors at my last school. Simply resetting the monitor to defaults using the OSD resolved it.

    Lol! Sorry.

    Next time I have the issue I'll try with the monitor first. No one has replied to my thread about this issue and when I saw your this thread I thought "yeah solution!"
