the video settings on your computer has changed to a setting that the monitor doesn't like! try entering your computer in safe mod and change the setting to a max of 1024x768. however, if your video card has a dual output and you have 2 monitors connected at the same time then this is your problem. make sure that the 17" lcd is monitor 1 and the other monitor #2. one of the monitors is set higher the the 17" lcd and when it is not connected the computer may think this the setting for the 17" lcd and not the other monitor which may be hdmi or 1900x1080 which the 17" cannot read this it is out of range!
You should have no problem connecting the monitor to the VGA port of the Dell that is already comes with the computer, just make sure to set the video output resolution to be at native resolution of the monitor, which is 1280 x 1024 @60Hz.
First of all check your monitor's color configurations using the buttons in the monitor. Then, if colors are set to default, go to your GPU's control panel, usually found by right clicking your desktop and finding an option that says ie. Nvidia control panel. Go to video control settings and/or desktop color settings and either restore defaults or configure them yourself if you know what you are doing. Hope that helps.
1. Unplug the AC power cord to make sure the power is off.
turn the monitor upside down, you need 2 people for this.
2. Pull the 4 hooks on bottom side of the base and hold.
3. Separate the monitor and base.
What this monitor is trying to tell you is that your resolution is set to a higher degree than this monitor can support. Turn your computer off, restart then go to safe mode by tapping the F8 key or by holding down the left shift key while it is booting. Once in safe mode set your display resolution in desktop display properties dialog box to some thing easy like 800x600 16 bit color and reboot your pc. This should get you back to normal operating system where from there you can then try to find the highest support resolution for this monitor.
