Question about Dell E171FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

White horizontal bar on the bottom of Dell E171FP monitor.

We recently turned on our computer and there is a white horizontal bar on the bottom of the monitor display. There seems to be no way to get rid of this white bar with colored vertical lines thru it. Can this be fixed? Thank you.

Dell had a problem with horizontal lines in some of their monitors a little while back. I would try contacting Dell Tech Support to see if your monitor is one of the one effected. I think they were replacing the monitors that had the problem, but I'm not completely sure.

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

This occurs when you have lines of pixels go out or your video card has gone bad on your computer. You should hook it up to another computer to confirm which is causing the issue and repair/replace the problem device.

Monitor's display is shifted up and right so that there is just black space to the left and all along the bottom whereby cutting off the display. cannot see bottom menu bar.


One of the buttons on the front of you monitor (bottom right hand corner of the bezel) is a menu button. Press that then using the the arrows up and down buttons go the the horizontal and vertical positioning option. Once chosen move the display as desired.

You could also press the Auto (config) button, that may do the same for you.

What causes vertical lines on screen, some lines are thick and some are thin and appear over the task bar, they are across the entire screen.


They are static lines. They can be caused by a variety of reasons, damage to your monitor, damage to your vid card (perhaps it was got a little too hot?), ive seen this issue also with overclocked, try resetting to defaults if so. Also try reinstalling/updating your current display drivers. If you have an integreated video card it could be that your motherboard got hot and perhaps damaged it. If you have a spare vid card or something else you can hook up to try, and it still has the static lines, then it is your monitor for sure.
