You have a common problem with no simple solution.
the causes could be the following:
*faulty video card
*faulty data cable going to your monitor form the the computer
*faulty memory
*faulty motherboard-video controler
*faulty monitor

this is what I would do
1. Test the monitor on a known good computer (to see if the monitor is good or not)
2. test the computer with a known good monitor (to see if computer is the problem)
3. if 2 is telling you the computer is the problem. try replacing the video card or use a video card if you were using the video that came with your motherboard
4. if 3 did not give you good results, try replacing memory modules for known good memory modules (check your motherboard documentation to know what memory to get)
5. try replacing your motherboard.

Hi there, i assume you switch on the monitor but there's no display. Is the monitor working before this? If what i assume is right, you should check the connection between the monitor and the cpu. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you should check the vga card. Maybe the pci slot/vga port is damage. If that the problem, you should change another display card.

Blue light on with blank screen dell SE198WFP monitor


It depends on what type of connection you are using. If you are using a VGA (analog) cable then you need to select that mode on your monitor menu. If you are using a DVI (digital) cable then you need to choose that mode on you monitor menu.

Menu keep on blinking


Disconnect the monitor from the computer. Then turn on the monitor, if the menu keeps on blinking then that means the screen is starting to go bad and the monitor needs to be replaced.
You can also hook up the monitor to another computer. If the blinking stops then that means its an issue with the video card in your original computer.

The power save light is blinking and the screen is black, but I cannot get it to turn on. Have rebooted everything. Disconnected the cord and just tried the monitor only. Hit Enter. Nothing is working


When you have the monitor by itself will it power on at all? You should be at least able to get to the menu. If not its likely the monitor itself is faulty.

My monitors light is blinking all the time n no pic Nec Multisync FP1355


there is a setting you can access from the monitor menu button. make sure that the monitor is set for the cable you have running to it.

If you are using DVI use the digital setting.

Anything else, use the analogue.
