    lol, i have a Dell 1280L monitor and last night it just went funky.

    as soon as i switch it on it clicks continuously and there is no picture. It is as if it is turning itself on and off. i have no idea how it happened or how to fix it.

    I'm down to a 15" monitor now and it so so small! lol.

    Three things that come to mind
    1) Check power cable, this has sometimes happened then the power cable hasnt been completely pushed in,
    2) Dodgy switch on monitor
    3) Dodgy vga cable

    I know your problem, Im supprised no one else figured this out. Your problem stems from one word mentioned in your first post, DELL.

    DELL IS SATAN

    Dell don't make their own stuff though, they just rebrand other things. I had a dell 21" monitor that was a rebranded Sony... never had any problems with it.
