Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have a 1501 that the monitor flickers to green, i suspected the cable between the board and the monitor but it doesn't seem to cut out when i move it around. Computer is responsive still, just the monitor seems to be affected. Running Windows Vista Home
Since the cable isn't the culprit as you determined by moving the cable around. This leads the problem to be either the video card (built in or not) in your PC or the monitor itself. The best way to test this is to switch your monitor with someone else and see which one duplicates the problem. If the monitor is the problem, the good news is that you can find them on sale for cheap online. I found a 19" for $99.99 and am quite happy with it.
The only other thing I'd suggest is updating the drivers for the monitor through Device Manager (right click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager). Expand Monitors and Display Adapters. Right click what is displayed and choose Update Driver. This most likely won't be the problem fixer but is worth checking out.
Last question...how old is the monitor ?
