There are two things which could have caused this. One, the Monitor settings have changed or the computers display settings have changed.

1. Resetting the monitor to default.
Push the 'MENU' button to open the OnScreedDisplay system and display the main features menu. Push the - and + buttons to move between the function icons
Use the buttons to highlight 'Factory Reset' (this returns the settings to the factory preset values for the selected group of functions)
Detailed instruction available at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/E153fpb/En/controls.htm

2. Checking the desktop display settings.
Right click on the desktop and select properties, click on settings and make sure screen resolution is set to one of the following 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. These are the only ones supported by the monitor

If both this fails. Then the monitor is nearing end of life

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Remove cover from HP w2408h monitor


pop the roundish 'HP' cover of the back of the stand. Remove the 4 black screws and the stand comes away. The case is just a clamshell affair, the main piece is the rear cover, the LCD front plastic border locks into it. The screen with components mounted is sitting loose in the back cover once the front border is removed. The trick is to pry off the front border without damage. Hook the fingers under the border where it lays against the LCD screen, wiggle, pull, curse and do it again. The top and bottom borders come loose easier than the end borders. Once these are popped free, stand the unit on end between your knees and pry away the end borders. A wide putty knife slipped between the border and metal frame will save your fingers but don't damage the screen. When the front border is off, lay the unit face-up on a table, undo the screws for the control panel and power switch modules, flip it over and lift off the back panel. Everything is under a metal casing.. I had no voltage from the power supply, trying to find a Fairchild chip SG6902SZ on the small control module, P/N ILTR-003, else the Pwr Bd, P/N ILP-004..

All LCD displays have an "Auto" button press it and see if that fixs it. should be aparent what it does if it does it. but basicly it alines the picture with the screen. when you change back to user profile you may need to press it again.

Black screen


If it's a lap yes you do have a back light but that isn't necessarily the problem. Laps have fn (function) keys that you may have hit accidentally. Look at your keyboard for any keys that may look like they have something to do with the brightness which you would hit the fn key first then the brightness key. You could also try to boot to the bios screen and "set defaults". It's also possible you've turned on the fn key to use an alternate monitor. You may be able to boot into safe mode and bypass any changed settings should this be the situation.
If nothing helps shine a light on your monitor if its an lcd and it it's the backlight you will still be able to see a screen just not lite up.
