Re: Discoloration of the images on the Dell Flat pannel...

Have you tried a different cable? That would account for the discoloration. That particular model came with a 15-pin analog video connector that you should be able to purchase at any electronics, office supply or computer store. You may even be able to borrow one from a friend's monitor to test and see if that works for you.

Now, about the mouse redraw issue, you may want to remove the video card from your device manager and let it reinstall. That should allow Windows to redefine mouse (X,Y coordinates) characteristics.

DELL E153FPf doesn't show the image

OSD Warning Messages A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the monitor is out of sync range.
Cannot Display This Video Mode
This means that the monitor cannot synchronize with the signal that it is receiving from the computer. Either the signal is too high or too low for the monitor to use. See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this monitor. Recommended mode is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
Occasionally, no warning message appears, but the screen is blank. This could also indicate that the monitor is not synchronizing with the computer or the monitor is in a power save mode.

Monitor colour change

The discoloration problem is due to the near by magnetic field (magnetic interference or due to magnets) appliances like speakers which are very near to monitors ...
so what you have to do is just keep some distance to the monitor from the speakers and other magnetic appliances and then press menu button & just give degauss..

It totally sounds like the backlight is toasted. If that is the case you will have to replace them. Normally if the power inverter is shot, the monitor will power up briefly at least and then shut off. If you can use a flash light and see some sort of image on the screen you know that your VGA chipset works however your backlight(s) are burnt out. If not, more than likely your power supply (power inverter chipset) is broken and needs to be replaced..

Regarding L1515S 15" LCD Monitor Resolution

Hello mallik, The LCD monitor is actually a active matrix of small transistors (3 for each pixel). They have one native resolution, a FIXED one for example you monitor has 1024 x 768 pixels. This results in 786432 pixels displayed on the screen. Because each pixel is controlled by 3 transistors there will be 2359296 transistors controlling your entire screen. This is a fix number. You can't raise the resolution to 1280 x 1024 because this will require as you can see now... a lot more transistors on the same surface. All you can do is to lower the resolution, in this case 4 pixels (12 transistors) form a larger pixel acording to that lower resolution. The image can look blurry in these situations. THe bottom ideea is that a LCD pannel (more corectly said, TFT (thin transistor film) pannel, has one optimum resolution, it's native one. The higher the better, when choosing one to buy, but you can't raise the resolution over that. You can just lower it. It works different then the normal conventional CRT monitors. Sorry for my bad english as I live in a non english-speaking country. Also if you have anymore questions please post a comment.
