Re: Monitor problem

It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.

Make sure you've downloaded the driver for your video card. As long as that is installed and it supports higher resolutions, you should be able to go to your system settings and change it (this process will depend on your operating system).

My monitor flashes on at startup but then goes blank

I will assume you have already try this monitor with other PC and new VGA cable with the same result.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, falied 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 and other monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

Power Board Dell E151FPp

Did you check the fuse PF751, it should be less than 1 Ohm?
Also look for cold solder joints.

No display but power led is on

sounds like a video card problem in your pc. If you are using the onboard video output on your motherboard, you probably need a new one. If you are using a card that has been added to the board in a slot, try your onboard output (looks the same)

Cannot get me monitor out of sleep mode, please help?


Pls check the power management properties in device manager to check if the option to wake the computer from sleep for the keyboard and mouse are enabled.
You may also try to change the power plan or create a new power plan and check if you are able to wake the computer from sleep.
If this problem started a few days back, then you may try to do a system restore.

Monitor goes black

it depends whether it displays anything. There's only one fuse which determines if the power is on or nor. If your monitor turns on, I would not look for the bad fuse.
