    Mine is doing the same type of thing too. It just started last night. When I turn the computer on, it goes through the boot up just fine, but when it goes to the XP login page the image become distorted and the screen will sometimes flash on and off. Soemtimes I can see well enough to get logged in and the when my desktop page is loading, the icons are fuzzy and the screen will blink on and off at different rates of speed, ie. fast-fast-slow-fast-slow-slow-fast.... But, get this, the monitor will work just fine in safe mode... no blinking or flashing or distorted images. I even tried to restore the computer to an earlier setting in safe mode and that didn't help either. I tried to boot up in normal mode and the same thing happened again.

This is a little known porblem Dell has. Dell is not tell anybody.
I don't know if this is going to fix the monitor for the long haul, but it should help in the mean time.
grable the frame of monitor with both hands, apply some pressure, not too much (you will break the glass). change location and do the same thing. the screen will come back at certain location, when you apply the pressure to the frame. this is because some connection inside of the frame is coming loose with time.

good luck
if that doesn't fix the proble, please post.

Tip

How to change the desktop background image.


There are two ways in which to set your desired image to your desktop background.

Option 1
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.

2) Then double click the image to take you into Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default picture viewer. Once there right click anywhere on the picture and click Set as Desktop Background from the pop up menu.

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2

Then right click on the image and select Set as Desktop Background

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2 is a slightly quicker way of doing it as you don't really need to view the entire image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as long as you can see the thumbnail of it or you are in Filmstrip view.

To enable the thumbnail or filmstrip file view
In the picture folder click on the menu view and then click on the option Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the drop down menu. Or you can find the view icon on your tab menu.

NOTE: Just remember that if your image is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, it will be distorted and stretched if you are using as a background on a widescreen monitor.

Older 4:3 monitors (square monitors) use sqarish image resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
Newer widescreen monitors use widescreen image resolutions such as 1152x864, 1600x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080.

disconnect the signal cable from the computer. if it shows color bars, it means your monitor is ok and your video card is faulty. if it still does the same thing. you need to reseat the video card if its not integrated.

Distorted shrunken picture


hi

reduce the resolution to a bit lower and the refresh rate to a nominal 60hz and things should get back to normal

my hunch is u r using a slightly high resolution and refresh rates

but before that try the buttons on the monitor to see if expanding the image sideways or top and bottom would help initially

cheers
pls rate if this was any help
