The monitor is telling you it's not getting a signal from the computer. The message is displayed to show the monitor is on and can display an image, but the computer is not sending video. Probably the computer is not starting up, or there has been a failure of the video card. You'll need to check into the cause.

I suggest to open your computer and unplug your power supply and look for the color green and black cord which plugged from your motherboard. Then find a piece of wire and short the color green and black wire to test if your power supply is working and plug to your power socket. And check your electronic parts (capacitor) near at your processor, it might your capacitor blown out.

From time to time, the screen simply goes a random colour (red, blue, white, brown, green...) Nothing I press short of the power switch at the mains will solve this. Is this a problem with the screen or...


Let me first ask if you are using onboard graphics or a seperate card? If separate card, is it PCIe? Ver 2? Do you have a diagnostics program ( dxdiags ) built into windows. Should this pass, you may have an out of date driver for your video. If this is not the case, I would think some RAM is on the edge of crapping out.

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Hi,

yeah so this happens alot and it is always one of three things.

1. the monior is shot
2. the video card component in the pc is done for
3. your cpu has a more serious problem.
i am leaning towards option one becase you say that the pc is on and you can sometimes see the screen and use the pc. Also another problem could be a short in the monitor cables themselves.
one good way to check out whats wrong is to hook up another monitor to the unit and see if everything is ok

i hope this helps.
