Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I am using a Dell Lattitude D830. I added another monitor (Dell) for home use. First time I hooked it up, it worked fine. Today, I took the laptop with me, so unplugged the monitor. Now, I cannot get the monitor to come back up. I have gone into the control panel and changed the monitors, but it still won't work. The monitor works, but I cannot get the laptop screen to show up. My wireless mouse won't work either now. I need the monitor badly, as my DH cann ot see the small screen on the laptop. I have unplugged, rebooted, changed out batteries and everything else I could think of. I consider myself pretty computer savvey!

Have you tried the "function key + F8 key" since that usually is the key combo you press to switch between built in LCD and external monitor on a Dell laptop.

Worst case scenario would probably be some type of driver setting or resolution setting might be to high. and in that case you can try system restore (with the monitor connected of course) to the day it was working and see if the setting go back to that time...

This solution is the easiest one to try since you can always undo the restore operation if it doesn’t resolve the issue

Dell e193fp goes blank at times


From the description there are bad solder connections on the power supply board and since the monitor is 7 years old there is a good chance some of the capacitors need to be changed.

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.

Vison flat 19" hooked to toshiba laptop w/Vista no signal


Can't say I really "fixed" the problem. I tried other monitors, DVI cord and took the laptop to a repair shop. Nothing worked. And then....boom.....it worked! No one knows why or how. No one did anything to the computer or monitor. It just works. Who knows how long it will work, but it works today.

Monitor doesn't work


When you got the pc, you should have been given a starter pack with some CD-ROM's in the pack, one of them should be the drives for the monitor, you might need to use anothermonitor to see the instructions, but the basic graphics card should power the monitor enough to set things up, until then you won't be able to adjust the settings.

No Power in Monitor


If you are a tech. Check the voltages going to the Logic Board, if one is missing (12 or 5v. Then that is most likely due a an IC failure on the power supply board. IC 901 Don't quote me on this, but I know it is less than $10. Sorry, I only have 1 left, the last one I did was in Aug2006 so memory is fuzzy. Kegtapper
