Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor
I used my Dell 20" LCD monitor for a year with a VGA hook up. Now I have a new computer that uses DVI-D. When I boot up the computer I only see a blue screen with nothing on it. HELP!
It sounds like the backlight has burned out. The faint light you are seeing is ambient light in your room being reflected through the LCD. Try it in a perfectly dark room and see if you can see anything on the screen. The following page should give you a sense of what is involved in replacing a backlight: http://home.comcast.net/~stonent/screenfix.htm If you aren't comfortable taking things like this apart, I would recommend finding a local repair shop to replace the backlight.

It is probably either a CCFL back light issue inside the LCD or a set of capacitors on the inverter/power supply board.
Would you be willing to part with it ?

Sounds like the video controller board inside the monitor has blown a transistor. They are only about 3mm wide so not easy to spot even if you look closely.
It's a fairly rare fault, though not unknown to happen without reason.

Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.
Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.
1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card
Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary
2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable
At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display
3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard
set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel
If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )
At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop
If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port
No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )
If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.
If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"
Your LCD Display may need replacement
