    After my PC shuts down the green light stays on the monitor,(Does not go amber into standby mode) and the screen changes colour (full screen) from Red to Blue to Yellow then black etc, and i then can't turn off the monitor, the only way to turn off the monitor is to unplug it from the mains supply.I have tried re-installing the drivers for the monitor but the problem still remains.

    Regards Tony.

    sound like it is a hardware problem.

    try a different monitor, any type, digital to digital-analog to analog. see if the problem follows the monitor.

    if no, then it is definitly hardware problem.

    if yes, then you need to scan the pc for virus and other spayware. (porbable couse.)

    hope that helps

On most Dell monitors there is a built in diagnostic check. Disconnect the VGA or DVI monitor cable from the computer and power on the monitor. If you see floating color bars then the monitor is not the problem.

My monitor has gone to Power Save Mode


Hello,
If your monitor is going in Power save mode it can be cause by following reasons.
>Check the data cable going from monitor to your Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is connected properly.The connector will be blue or white in colour.
>If the Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is powering on.

If still in power save mode then try to shutdown Tower and monitor,disconnect power cable from tower and monitor.Hold the power button on tower for 15 seconds.Then again try to connect monitor and check,if still nogo,and if tower has no lights then issue with motherboard or video card or power supply.If possible try connect spare known good monitor.

Thankyou

My Dell Dimension 4600 monitor has gone completely black though it shows it booting.


Start your computer in "Safe Mode".
Change the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, and restart.
If you eventually see your "wallpaper", try setting your screen-resolution to 1024 by 768, and "test" it. If OK, try setting your screen-resolution to 1280 by 1024, and 'test" it.

If your computer can still try to load windows it is not a hard disk failure. Just try repairing your current installation via your restore disk, hopefully it either came with it or you made a copy of the image from your backup partition.

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image


You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.

Check your bios settings to make sure your video settings are correct for whatever card you're using. It sounds like you have a conflict between an onboard video card, and an aftermarket card.
