Cannot read the model number (chinese) I known i have a flat screen monitor 20 inches from DELL 2004 I want to connect it to my Inspiron 1100 .I need instructions this an handme down so I have no...

Since the cable you're describing is a VGA cable with the 3-row, 15-pin configuration, it will be the 1:D-sub selection. The DVI choice is for HD TV or a display card with HD capability. The S-Video is more commonly used for higher clarity video signals--less than HD of course, but approximately 15% to 20% sharper than a co-axial cable signal. (Reason: co-axial cable has all the color sigs squashed together while s-video splits them out into separate feeds.)

Monitor: Compaq TFT5015 Displays vertical lines

Check that the signal cable from the computer is firmly connected and that there are no bent pins in either end. If the trouble continues, the problem is in the monitor itself. Given the low replacement cost, it's uneconomical to try repairing these.

Discoloration of the images on the Dell Flat pannel screen

Have you tried a different cable? That would account for the discoloration. That particular model came with a 15-pin analog video connector that you should be able to purchase at any electronics, office supply or computer store. You may even be able to borrow one from a friend's monitor to test and see if that works for you.

Now, about the mouse redraw issue, you may want to remove the video card from your device manager and let it reinstall. That should allow Windows to redefine mouse (X,Y coordinates) characteristics.

Bluish screen -

is it a greenish blue?..... if so you have lost your red signal..... check your monitor connectors for bent or broken pins...... usually happens after swapping cables or monitors on a computer..... you could also have a bad cable or monitor..... is the monitor a CRT or a flat panel.... loss of one color is very common on CRT monitors, and could be a bad solder connection on the CRT driver board, or a bad video chip..... flat panel LCD monitors don't usually lose a color, although it is possible.... the most common failures on LCD flat panels is total power supply failure (no power at all) or display matrix driver failure (colored stripes across or down the screen), but a cable failure is also possible, like i said above, check the connectors for bent or broken pins..... there are 3 rows of pins...... at the widest side of the connector, there should be at least 3 pins next to each other on that row (sometimes there are 5), the middle row should at least have 3 consecutive pins as well (and again, there are sometimes 5) the last row (the smaller side of the connector) should have at least two (but sometimes all 5) pins in it. the first row and last row of pins should line up vertically, and the middle row is offset a half a space, so from top to bottom, the columns of pins make a zigzag...... if the connectors are alright, then your most likely problem is the monitor..... if another monitor works on the computer, it's the monitor..... if another monitor has the same problem on this computer, then it is the video card (or the motherboard's video output, which is fixable by installing a video card)
