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'

Sounds like this is related to same issue i'm having: Power save mode! .....Is this the same for you? The only way I can currently resolve this isssue is to reseat the RAM

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

Sidewinder - If it's a monitor problem why does it only work if I reseat the RAM?
If it is a monitor problem only I'd love to know how to fix this!

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, i meant mine was definately a monitor problem. Yours on the other hand does indeed sound like a PC one!
