I have an Acer monitor hooked up to my Dell 1505E laptop computer so I can have a larger screen. The monitor used to come on as soon as I turned the laptop on. After using this system for about six months, the monitor on off switch started to blink. The monitor would take three to five minutes to come on. Now the monitor is taking almost an hour before it comes on.

When I have the laptop turned on, I am unable to turn the monitor off. No matter how many times I push the monitor switch it continues to blink. When the laptop is off, I can turn the monitor off.

Sorry, I dont have the answer right now. I have the same monitor and problem.
I have been searching for the same answer.

So far I only have theories of a solution.

1.) A transistor on the monitor board has gone bad do to heat (and like all hardware we gullible Americans buy, they are only designed to last for a few years, and priced just right that we buy them repeatedly.)

And when I do have the answer, I will be certain to post my answer.
