- Check the Video card of the computer.

You'll needing to open the cover of the CPU.

Try to remove the video card on the mother board of the computer, check the video card if hot or clean the card, maybe there are dirt and dust to it. then reinsert the video card to the computer then check the monitor if you got the same problem.

Note: Make sure that your computer is off while doing the steps.

I would suggest another video card, the CMOS battery would not have anything to do with the screen.

Dell E173FPc monitor. Screen is black, power button color cycles


Hi,
First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any
surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective.
What are the results please?

Dell 1702FP 17" shows nothing after Radeon HD 2600 put in.


Is the card plugged into the (PCI/AGP) slot correctly? Did you disable the onboard video in the bios? Also be sure to check in windows device manager and check for the graphics card to appear there.

Computer monitor screen is blue


Can you access the bios set up.

If the bios setup is running evrything is ok except the hard disk.

To find out if there is any problem with monitor just put off the monitor and disconnect it from the cpu. Then turn it back on. If the no signal message is coming, then monitor is ok.
Your hard disk is the main suspect

If the same blue screen comes then monitor need repairs.
You may also try with another monitor on your computer to see the results. If the sane happens it is the hard disk

No display.


http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/2005FPW/En/setup.htm#Using%20the%20OSD

Make sure the proper input is selected

1: D-SUB for Blue VGA cable
2: DVI-D for White DVI cable

The option selected should be indicated on the power save screen.

If changing the input select and rebooting the computer have no effect an no video from the computer is ever displayed, then the monitor is in need of repair.

Vertical lines on LCD monitor


You have capacitor problem in power supply, if many lines then replace the bigest cap and find anymore that needs replacing. Its an AC filter problem.
