I turn my modem on and the monitor but the monitor just shows a red green and blue box moving around the screen whats wrong?


That means the monitor is not connected to anything or it is not detecting a connection. Is there another place you can plug in the monitor? If so, try plugging it in there, that should solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My Dell dimension 2400 monitor doesn't work when connected to my tower. It appears that it's off when I connect it to the Dell Dimension 2400 tower, but when I connect the same monitor to another computer,...


Hi! For dell machines when u unplug the video cable/VGA from the tower while the system is on it will show monitor self test.If you are seeing a black box moving around the screen it means that monitor is ok.Check connection between monitor and tower.Make sure cables are securely plugged in.Check if the tower is ok. There is a possibility that your monitor is ok but the tower is not.check the power button (whats the color) if amber/orange, this means there is something wrong the the tower. If its blue or white it means its ok.Also check if you are going to hear one beep, it means system is booting up properly. If tower is ok and you are using a expansion video card then try to use internal one, normally its the vga port above the usbs.If you are going to use onboard video card make sure you enable it first in bios.If all things fail, contact your manufacturer, if the system is under warranty then they will send a tech to check the machine.hope this helps...

When i turn on my dell latitude D505 the backlight


Either the video cable has been damaged or unplugged or the video processor is malfunctioning. Check this by connecting an external monitor. If the video is all there then press the Fn(function) and F4 key. This should switch the video from the external monitor to the internal screen. If this doesn't happen or if the external monitor shows no video then the laptop needs to see a reputable repair perso or check my website www.micromendllc.com

The color on my monitor is changing by itself... going blue yesterday and red today? whats up?


Sounds like either your monitor is about to break or that there is something wrong with the connection between your computer and your monitor (something wrong in the cable). Next time that happens, try to move the cable connecting your computer with the monitor. If it fixes it, you better go buy a new cable.
