First go to device manager and click on Display to see what Video Driver you have
How do get into Windows Device Manager


Second go to Dell.com to get driver
heres the link for you
Product Support Dell US
Go and click on the list on Video (6) file in blue lettering you must scroll down the page to find it.

Find which one is yours and download it and install it.

Once you did that and it still does it. Inspect the cable from the back of the monitor to the back of the computer. Make sure the connections are good and secure.

if that doesn't work them check to see if your computer have a video card or if its intergrated. If you have a video card reseat the card by opening the system the same link i provided you has a Service manual that can show you how to do this.

if it doesnt have a video card then you can buy one to rerplace the bad graphics chip on your computer.

hope that helps

SOURCE: blank monitor

Hi,
To resolve the problem,do the following step,
1. Power on the system
2. At dell logo screen before windows xp starts to load tap on the F8 key slowly 5 to 8 times
3. Select safe mode
4 Hit enter on the next screen and logon using the administrator or your name
5. Do the system restore, when you have logged on, this would return your system back to the date when it was working fine
6. To system restore
click start>all programs>accessories>system tools >system restore

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode


Does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your LG monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PCs video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

No Signal when desktop wants to load


It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them. You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers. Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.
