Hi there! You can test first if the monitor is working. Disconnect it from the computer then turn it on after that it should show you colors on the screen this means its working if not then its no use trying it on a different computer.


Hope this helps!

Most common failure in this model is shorted transistors in the inverter circuits caused by poor solder connections, see pictures here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Screen comes on for less than one second & then goes black.


Possibly  your monitor inverter is broken, have a good look in some angel if the screen shows any picture if so then your inverter is broken. Its a common think with monitors.

Screen goes black, but power light is on (not blinking)


The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.

Video cards that can handle two monitors at the same time have cables with two plugs on the monitor end.

If your video cable has two plugs on the monitor end, try the other plug.
