Re: Dell M922 monitor problem

To change the resolution back to something more reasonable go to the control panel (start, settings, control panel) and double left click on the Display icon. Click on the settings tab. The color quality should be set a high as possible, usually 32 bit or true color. Then click on the Advanced button in the lower right corner and on the next screen click on the Monitor tab. In the Monitor settings make sure the Screen refresh rate is set between 70 and 75 Hertz (the higher the number the less obvious the screen flicker will be but don?t set any higher). Click on the OK button to go back to the previous screen. Once that is set you want to increase the Screen Resolution using the slider bar to the left. For a 19? screen you would want to set it to a minimum of at least 1024 x 768. The typical setting is 1280 x 1024 depending on monitor / video card capabilities and personal tastes. Once you get the resolution back to the original settings your screen will display as it did before the ?change?. If you find another resolution setting you like better we?ll need to make some adjustments to the monitor itself. Just let us know. Ordinarily screen resolution changes doesn?t just happen, it?s usually the result of a program, user or problem. If that is the case you?ll need to post anther question along with details about what is happening just before the change occurs along with your operating system and any other pertinent information.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

My Dell monitor gives sharp noise when started without connecting to the CPU.When system has started it works fine.Can I know how to solve it please ?

I used to have a monitor similar to yours, from the noise you are describing is it like a crack? or an high voltage electrical spark/arc? (Mini lightening flash sound).
The Monitor I had De-gaussed each time it was switched on this is a weird thing that lines up the colour guns. If done whilst in use it gives the brief appearance of a shimmy/shake to the screen.
Have you a menu bar on or near the power on/ off switch? if you do try looking for De-gausse it may inadvertently become switched on to auto. You can De-gausse manually.
I do hope this helps.

Hi its about a monitor

See if you can change the video cable and get the same problem. Make sure it is plugged in securely (both video and power cords).

If same thing happens with a different cable try a different monitor. Maybe if you don't already have another one, someone you know can let you use theirs for a day.

If neither option works, it's probably your video card. If changing the monitor works then it's probably your monitor either going bad or try reinstalling the video driver on your computer.

Let me know if anything works, I hope this helps

Menu screen keeps appearing

Hello, My name is Richard; I work for Dell here in Round Rock, Texas. From what you describe, it sounds like the menu button is depressed in such a way that small movement activates its function. I could not suggest any real corrective options as this is most likely a mechanical issue with the button, and would require a technician to open the monitor and inspect that. I am not going to recommend you open the monitor case as it can be dangerous. I would suggest you call our tech support at 1-800-822-8965 ex. 726-8859, and find out if the monitor is still under warranty. Regards, Richard B Dell Online Community Outreach

Annoying background image

Ken, Unplugging the monitor for 48+ hours to disapate all electronics within the monitor may work. otherwise its probably a heat problem. When the monitor heats up something stops doing its job. Tim
