I have a dell monitor, with a dell dimenson 2400 tower. When I turn off my computer, or monitor for 30 min + it will not turn back on. When I turn on the monitor, or computer the screen will come on, and quickly turn off. I can still see the screen, but it's VERY dark. My monitor's power button from green to orange. This is my strategie to fixing it, by turning it on and off untill it stays on. But this takes about 10 minutes. I need some immediate assistance! If you guys need some more info please let me know.

LCD (flat thin screen or CRT like a older tv?)
The LCD's crap out after several years, they can be fixed but the fix's cost more than they are worth. If its a CRT I would replace it anyway - really obsolete and not worth fixing either.

Does not appear to be a monitor problem. The orange light comes up when monitor is connected but does not get signal from PC, like when Windows turns off monitor after few minutes of idle time. So its either software problem, cable problem or your graphics card is faulty.

Start by checking the cable connections and updating monitor and video drivers.

It's a flat thin screen. Also this problem came up when I reinstalled windows

How do I update my monitor and video drivers?

By downloading from here and installing:

You can also google for drivers for specific manufacturer e.g., "Intel 845"

Test your monitor on another computer if you can.
Originally you didnt say this started with a reinstall of windows. It still sounds like the monitor could be failing.
