Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Dell ultrasharp 1704fpt vertical line

I have just bought a second hand dell ultrasharp 1704fpt monitor. The problem is that it has a 1px vertical line which is always present about 1cm from left hand side of screen (to varying degrees of brightness and looks like it may display a negative colour to the one it should be) even when a graphics card cable is not attached. The line is perfectly vertical from top to bottom of the screen. Can this be fixed or is it a terminal fault?

Dell 1704 monitor goes to black screen after one

Hi my name is Rain.
Ok so that im clear on the problem. your monitor will come on but in a matter of seconds it goes to a black screen?
If this is the problem. The answers you seek will most likely
be in your video card.
Try this test:
  • Unplug monitor from the computer.
  • Turn on monitor .
  • Look for monitor self test screen.
If you see the monitors self test screen then your problem indeed is
the video card . You will need to replace the video card inside of the computer.

Remove the stand, look along the bottom edge - you will see two small slots, one either side. Poke something in the slots and wiggle slighly, the corner will come apart - then just pull until all the clips undo.
