You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.

The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Verify the computer is on and the monitor input is set to the correct mode or auto. Try another monitor if possible.

It is not detecting a signal from your computer.
This means your video card is not sending an image.
You can try another monitor, but I don't think that will help.
I would boot the computer into safe mode and see if that helps.
If it does, then the problem most likely is that your video card is trying to send an image in a resolution that is too high for your monitor.
Otherwise, your video card has a problem. (Assuming that your computer is actually booting up)

First, try it on another PC, check or try another VGA cable, if it still does not work then you need to open it up. Dell monitors are known to have bad solder connections, bad caps. See my photo albums of failed Dell monitors to get some idea what to look for.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
