It seems the problem my not be to involved.
1st. Did you take the monitor apart.? If so, you should back track and find what you had missed.
2nd. If you had not taken the unit apart after the power surge, you will more than likely have to, in order to repair your monitors problems.
3rd. This will most differently require the removal of power supply and the replacement of 5 to 8 Capacitors.
4th. If you are not experienced in the replacement of electronic items on a printed circuit board, Please do not attempt this repair.....
3rd. If the unit has any kind of warranty, you may want to pursue a warranty repair.
Do Not Tell Reps. That You Had A Power Surge.
No electronic equipment is covered under Power Surge Faults.

If you do feel confidant in the removal and replacement of these items, please reply to me here or at my website and I will explain in detail, how to get to and remove supply and what to look for in repair.

( Dell xps m1530 laptop ) Monitor blank, powers up but screen won't come on.


It ISN'T the LCD screen. Since you diagnosed with an external VGA monitor, you now know the problem is the laptop.

(When you connect an external VGA monitor to a laptop, you are bypassing the Video Cable, and LCD screen. You are connected directly to the laptop )

The basic Windows files aren't being found. The boot files. This may mean a bad Harddrive.

Do you have the Restoration CD Disk? Laptop on insert it into the optical drive tray, close the tray.
When asked choose - Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

If a checkdisk is done, you have bad sectors on the harddrive.
There IS a special procedure in replacing a harddrive.

Dell 1800fp dead


Each monitor has a different response to "no activity" from the system. So for the monitor, if you get a chance, try your monitor on another machine that you know does function. At work, neighbour, or other.

For the computer, does the it (beep) or POST (Power On Selft Test) when you turn it on, do you see and hear what you would if the monitor was connected?

If it sounds normal, then everything should be fine and luck might have it, your backup monitor is not working either, try another one from the same friend or neighbour above.

If it doesn't POST, you could have a video or other card or ribbon connection loose in the computer. Either you or a friend, or the service center, whichever feels comfortable reseating all the external and internal equipment, bearing in mind static electricity and proper handling measures for the computer.

i believe you may have answered your own question here because what you are stating is a malfunctioned monitor if you plugged other monitors to the cpu and they worked and the monitor in question is not working maybe it was a storm surge and since it did not have a surge protector then maybe the monitor is shot and you may need to replace the monitor...

hope this helps

15" Dell monitor is blank-connected


there can be many issues why there is no screen on this other computer.

1. video card failure
2. No system boot "bios issues"
3. Cables not connected correctly
4. Bent pins

First you want to do some trouble shooting. If this monitor works with a computer and not working with another then obviously there are some issue with the computer itself.

Have you check the resolution that Windows is putting out?

Try booting in SAFE mode this will set the computer's resolutions to the lowest so you can see a image. Most monitors in this caliber cannot handle certain high resolution signals.

We are here to help please update us with any more information you may have such as:

Are you see-ing any boot up screens?
Do you hear the system actually boot?


Thanks for using Fixya.com I do hope this was very helpful information for you.

My Dell Monitor is completely blank, is there a fuse to replace? We think it was a power surge in our office.


Monitors do not generally have fuses, and if they do, they would be contained within the power supply. If a power surge did indeed fry it, you may have to replace it. If you have another power supply of the same type around, try it. If it works, you just need to replace the power supply. If it does not, the monitor may be dead.

For future reference, you should always plug all electronic equipment into a surge protector, or even better, a battery backup (excluding printers).

Good luck!

Dell E153FP monitor won't display any video from system (Dell GX260). My e173FP monitor works fine. E153FP powers up, runs Self Test Feature Test fine, menus all seem OK. Tried Factory Reset... still no...


You probably have tried this, but make sure monitor is set to correct display... i.e., Analog or Digital

Also, try starting in safe mode and verify Monitor is able to handle the display settings resolution

Power on - blank (black) screen


Disconnect the monitor signal cable from PC and switch on your monitor. It should show some logo with Red, Green and Blue colors with a message similar to "No signal". If so, your monitor is working fine. Sometimes if the brightness and contrast is set to zero using controls present in the monitor, it will not show up anything. check wheather somebody set your monitor brightness and contrast to zero. If so incease them. As a last try connect to different PC and check before approaching a service center. I hope this will help you out. :)
