Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Dell LCD 207FP is blue on boot up. Does not show login screen.

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!

SOURCE: Dell Latitude LCD screen is dark, but computer is still working.

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.

SOURCE: "No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable

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

I just got a used syncmaster 203b monitor. I hooked it up and all I get is a black screen. I downloaded Driver whiz and hooked it up again. Still a black screen. Still get a black screen the blue light is...


Make sure that your computer unit is working. Sometimes we suspect that it is a monitor problem but usually, it is a frozen CPU set.

When you turn on the monitor, it should light the blue led and after a while, when it does not receive signal from the CPU, it will turn orange. If that is the case, the monitor is functioning well.

So what could be the problem?

Make sure that you hooked the monitor to the right VGA port. If you have an internal VGA port (built in with the motherboard) and you also have an external Video Card, you should hook it to the external VGA port and not the internal one since it is overridden by default.

Do you hear the "short beep" sound when you boot your PC? That signals a good video system. If you don't hear that beep sound (provided your PC's speakers are okay), you should open your CPU case and try to remove your memory modules (RAM). Clean the pins with an eraser and put it on.

Now, your computer should work fine and so with your monitor.

You should try VGA and/or Digital Video output.

If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

Are you connect via Analog (Blue VGA connection) or DVI (White Digital connection?

If you are connected via DVI, then you have to change the input select button to DVI

If you are Connected VGA, make sure the system doesn't have 2 VGA ports. If it does, connect to the other port.

Computer monitor


I have never tried that but I would say it won't work that way. I have 2 display cards (3 outputs each, VGA, DVI, TVout) and 3 monitors. When I check the driver software and multiple screen function, it shows only 2 output (VGA and DVI) each. I cannot set TV output as a second screen. Even display properties on windows, it shows only available monitor output. I don't think you can do that.
Thank you,
Tan

LCD monitor screen blue


Either the VGA card or the monitor can not display the resolution correctly, so you need to get it back to where it was, this solution is for Windows users (not sure about other OSs), reboot your system and and get in the options start-up screen by pressing F8 at boot, choose safe-mode with VGA, if you see your desktop normally here then it's definately the screen resolution, set it back to a lower resolution (try 1024X768 and go downwards until it works fine), restart your system normally and you should be able to test new resolutions again, if it won't work using VGA mode then you might need to uninstall your VGA card but make sure that you have the correct driver for it before uninstalling, also please disable any onboard graphics card if you have one. I hope this would solve your problem, please feel free to ask if you any further questions regarding this matter. Thanks
