Question about Dell E196FP 19" LCD Monitor

Black screen, White blinking line on bottom of Monitor

When I extend any laptop onto my monitor the whole screen goes black, with a white blinking line only at the very bottom of the monitor screen. I've tested it with a few other laptops so i know the problem is the monitor. I have also used my laptop with this monitor on the same settings for over a year now so it's a new problem that occurred after i transported it on a trip. When the monitor isn't connected to a computer teh selftest works just fine, and when used as the main monitor on a desktop computer it works fine, the problem only occurs when extending the display from my laptop.

During the move was your laptop dropped or bumped ? If so you might of unseated the video adapter from your laptop. Have you tried another monitor? I wouldnt rule the monitor as the problem.

If the problem is with laptop monitor, try restarting the computer. If problem remains, try connecting your laptop to external monitor to see if problem is with laptop monitor or with display adapter.

If picture also like this with external monitor and with laptops own monitor after reboot, possible HW issue can be expected.

Monitor screen goes white at start up

That could be the monitor or the video/graphics card in the computer. Try another monitor as a test to narrow the problem. If it's a laptop, therer's usually a VGA port where another monitor can be installed. You might need to press a Fn key combination to turn on the second monitor in that case.

Dell monitor screen suddenly went white. Can it be fixed?

I have a strong suspicion that you have burned a capacitor or two on the monitor. You will need to bring this in to have it serviced as it will require the monitor to be opened up and new capacitors replaced/resoldered.

Screen is white with black vertical lines upon booting up. I can't get beyond this screen.

The video card (built-in on the motherboard) maybe faulty or the LCD screen is faulty.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of your laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up your laptop. If the video card id OK then the laptop will automatically divert the video to the external monitor. Then the problem is a faulty LCD screen.
If the external monitor also displays black vertical lines then you have a faulty video card and since it is part of the motherboard it is impossible to fix.

My monitor will only blink a black or white screen.

check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all
