One of the dad's at my wife's daycare is starting a home business for himself doing construction stuff. Anyway, he bought a dell system with a 17" LCD. Went to set it up and got an error message about the LCD being in power save mode. So he troubleshot it with Dell and they sent him a brand new one. The kicker is that they didn't want the old one back. So he said I could have it and if I got it to work I could keep it. I played around with it last night and couldn't get it to display anything. Did some research and this sounds like a fairly common problem with their DVI equipped LCDs, less so on the analog models like this one. I brought it into work this morning and swapped the thinner dell VGA cable for a thicker one we had here and now it seems to work fine. I'm gonna let him know that it seems to be working and that he can have it back if he wants, but I'm guessing he'll let me keep it.
