Disconnect the monitor from the computer, then turn it on. You should see three bands of color (red, green, and blue), which is the self-test feature of the monitor. If you can see all three colors, the monitor itself is probably OK, and it will mean that you need to check the connector on the monitor cable, the connector on the back of the videocard in the back of the computer, or reseat the videocard itself. One of the connectors could be damaged, or you could have a bent, broken, or missing pin within the connector. If a pin is bent and touching the shell of the connector, it can send the video signal to ground, making the monitor appear to be dead. BE VERY CAREFUL if you try to straighten the pin; they are fragile, and if you break the pin off completely, you will have even more problems to deal with... If one or two of the color bands are not visible, the LCD monitor is defective, and you'll have to decide whether it is cheaper to repair it, or simply to replace it... If you still can't locate the problem after checking the system as I've described, get another monitor to test the computer with. If the second monitor works properly, you most likely have a problem with the Dell LCD; if the problem still exists after switching monitors, then you most likely have a problem with the computer, and NOT with the Dell monitor...

Nothing happens when I push the power button on the front panel of NAD917 Preamp. Any idea why? Is there a way to reset the box?


Probably a fuse in the unit. Unplug it and open it. If you see a blown fuse, take it out and look at the writing on the metal part. buy a fuse with the same power ratings.

Aloha, My daughter has a new Sylvania Meso Netbook that is frozen and says windows is shutting down but nothing is happening? How do we get it to unfreeze or turnoff?


To shut down the frozen laptop, push and hold the power button for roughly 10 seconds.

If that doesn't work, disconnect the battery and the power adapter.

Dell 2007FPB LCD Won't turn on nothing happens when the power button is pressed


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course please check the monitor power cable. It may be a little loose that's why its not powering up.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
