    I have a Dell 2001FP monitor. It has worked great for a while now and then all of a sudden... When i turn it on it works fine for about 3 mins then it gets a burning smell and the screen goes black.. The lights on monitor are still on. I can turn it off for a few mins then back on and it does the same thing? Is this something i can fix or does anyone know of places that fix this kinda thing?

    Thanks for any help with this!

    I think it's your PSU going to burn

    Doesn't sound good at all, any burning smell from a component is very bad, do you still have warranty on it?

    No warranty.. It was a gift and i think the date is 2005 or 2006 on it
