I was just recently playing a little Xbox 360 on my Computer Monitor through the VGA cable and suddenly my monitor went off.. I unplugged it and put the cord back in and then it went to Auto-Detect(Analog). However, when I tried to press the first button on the monitor (the one that usually lets me switch from auto-detect to analog to digital) it shuts off the monitor until I press it a second time.. which goes back to Auto-Detect.

I was wondering if my monitor was broke? Or something with the video card? Maybe a cable?

I unplugged every cord for my computer and vga cable and re-plugged them back in... didn't change anything.

I still can get on the computer and xbox, just has to be at separate times. Literally an hour ago, and usually, I can switch back and forth from the Xbox to my desktop at any time. However now my Monitor doesn't switch to Analog or Digital anymore.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows XP.. and the only specs I could find on the Monitor is that it is a DELD015.
