Default Dell Monitor problems

I am having a problem with my dell monitor, it is 3-4 years old, and sometimes when I turn it on it will go black and flicker on and off, with the power light yellow/orange, with the screen black flickering at the same time. Nothing will appear on the screen. If I hit on the back it will work fine then, but it happens occasionally. I was wondering if the inverter was going out or if there was something loose.

check the monitor on a different computer if its doing the same then the monitor is dying but if it works perfectly on a different computer then your video card maybe unseated correctly

try opening her up and clean it out with a can of air and check for any unsoldered connections

i have a 1991 Dell CRT monitor that still runs like new ever since it came out (maintained) , but a Samsung LCD monitor caught my interest
