Not much to go on as far as a symptom but I'll see what I can do.

Check the cable connections for your monitor including the power cable and monitor cable. If either one came loose, it would result in your not getting an image on the monitor. Make sure the connections are secure. Also, you may have accidentally hit the power button on the monitor. Try pressing the power button to see if it'll turn on.

If it isn't one of these issues (and believe me, everyone has this sort of thing happen to them at least once in their life), it could be something more serious, such as a bad video card. If it's an old CRT monitor, the main picture tube may have finally given out. If the latter is the case, you'll have to find a way to safely dispose of the CRT monitor since they can be dangerous (never open one up...even unplugged, CRT monitors contain enough juice to knock you across the room).

I've had to make a number of assumptions due to lack of information. If none of the above is helpful, post back more details about your problem and we can go from there. Thanks and good luck.

My sony vaio d screen sometimes go black


Sounds like the Monitor or Video Card might be going bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and plug it into the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works without going black, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor goes black like your original monitor, then your video card is going bad.

Black screen just after boot window from USB


Sounds like either the monitor or video card inside the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a friend, neighbor, relative or co-worker and plug it into the computer. If the borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor does the same thing and not show a display then your video card inside the computer is bad.

How do I align screen using Vista? I have a broad black band near the center of the screen that I can't move.


Connect a different monitor. If that BLACK-BAR goes away, then try the monitor on a different computer. If the BLACK-BAR is present on both computers, then the monitor is the problem.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Black (non-usable) screen on 1/3 of entire computer screen


from what your saying, it may be that your monitor may be going bad and may need to be replaced.

I suggest calling dell and try to get your monitor fixed,
or you may buy a seperate monitor, just make sure it has a VGA port so that you may use the monitor.
