You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

My monitor is brighter on the lower left side than on the rest of the display?


NOTE : steps below are only for a Dell monitor
There could be two reasons for the same,
1. The monitor settings are bad or
2. The monitor has gone bad.

Request you to disconnect the monitor signal cable from the back of the computer (cable with the blue jack)

A self test feature check would run on the screen. If the screen is bright in the feature check . The monitor has gone bad and needs a replacement.

If the screen appears ok in the self test . Press the menu button on the monitor and select factory reset.

Look for bulged or leaking capacitors on the power supply board. If you can solder, you should be able to replace them with the same type and rating and that may just solve the problem. I've had luck with a couple of dozen monitors so far.

I would check the cable and connector pins first. Then I would suspect there's a problem with the video signal board inside the monitor. It could be the LCD panel controls, too. That would make the unit beyond economical repair unless you got a used one.
