    My Dell flatscreen just went out on me. I was working and it shut down. I can turn it back on but it goes right back off. I am currently using an old big gateway monitor. Can you give me any ideas as how to get the flatscreen up and running again?

    You replaced the flatscreen monitor with a CRT monitor and it's working, so you know it's not an issue with that desktop computer.

    Have you tried connecting the flatscreen monitor to another desktop to see if it works?

    I'm guessing at this point there's an issue with the flatscreen monitor.

    Flatscreen monitors have gotten very cheap(especially the 19" and smaller sizes), so replacing it(if you need to) won't be a big drain on your pocket.

    My last 19" CRT monitor weighed 52 pounds, so I was glad to donate it and get rid of it.
