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.

Try to plugged in external monitor to your computer. If you did not experienced this problem using the external monitor then this is not a mainboard issue. This could be an LCD issue. You need to call the manufacturers tech support department and have your computer repaired. Same goes also if you experienced same problem using external monitor. You still need to call dell tech support department for mainboard replacement.

Powersave


If it's going into powersave mode, it usually means it's not getting a signal from the video card. Try plugging this monitor into another machine or laptop and you should be able to tell if that's the issue.
