My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image

I turn the computer on. Then the monitor shows the DELL startup image, with the expanding white bar below. This goes off, followed by a very brief message at the top of the screen. This goes off immediately, followed by a totally blank monitor.... nada.
any suggestions? help !
This is the Dell dimension B110 computer.
thanks,
Richard

    I have the exact same problem on a Dell Dimension e521 with Monitor e197fp and ATI RADEON X1300 PRO 256MB vdeo card. Were you able to resolve it ? Note: monitor seems to work perfectly until it goes to load OS - even the partial OS of "Recovery Console" makes it go blank. Is it possible that it is some setting on the Video Card which has been changed ?

You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

The screen went blank while the computer was on, we restarted it, the screen shows the Dell sign & the white bar then it goes blank, it won't go into safe mode, the light is green on the monitor, what...


If there is a faint image in the background it is the coils on the planar if no image it is either the invertor or the backlight
If you have a faint image resolder the coils or replace them

Dell e228wfp flat panel. periodically goes blank. when i power off the on promp " 1. Auto detect ( Analog signal )" is up . . . just for a moment then screen goes blank.


It's heat related and possibly a backlight issue - mine only does it when the monitor has been powered on for about 2 hours. If I turn it off for an hour, I can get another 2-hour stretch out of it. Happens in self-test mode, so that's the cruncher. It's taken 2 days and many laborious hours on the phone, but Dell is sending me a replacement monitor tomorrow. There are more people with the problem here: http://en.community.dell.com/forums/t/19245356.aspx. Hope you get yours replaced too...
