blinking green power light on Dell monitor

This question is not answered

My monitor has no picture and the pwr. light is blinking green.  This happened suddenly for no apparent reason.  The CPU works fine on the TV.  I tried unplugging and replugging in the mon.,,,,,no luck. All suggestions (other than buy a new monitor) appreciated.

    Stand Alone Monitor Test
    * Turn off the monitor
    * Unplug the monitor from the computer (ALL cables)
    * Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket
    * Turn on the monitor
    * The floating red/green/blue/white dialog box should appear on screen against a black background. If not, the monitor is defective

  • I have the same problem as described above.  When I tried the procedure above, the floating red/green/blue/white dialog box appears.  So the monitor is not defective?

  • 90% of the time, yes. Can you test the monitor on another PC or test a different video card in this PC?
