As a laptop is involved, you may have bent a pin during connecting and disconnecting the monitor to the laptop. Check that out.

I assume you have tried cycling through the adjustment screens using the buttons on the monitor.

Before you try replacing hardware components, you might try "last good configuration" on your computer via F8 on start up.

SOURCE: dell 19" monitor screen turns blank

i had same problem, fault was traced using a multimeter set to diode measurement, i found that one of the high power switch transistors in the inverter side of the power board was short circuit (there are four in the same area sticking up from the board, not surface mounted). normally they should measure 450 ish but when they read 0-010 its gone, pulled it out of circuit and remeasured it, gone, replaced and fixed.

SOURCE: Monitor gone black but shows self test not floating

Sounds as though the control unit has died. There are 3 parts to most monitors. The video processor board, power supply board and the HV/backlight board. You can replace the video processor board.
Make sure you leave the unit unplugged first and set for an hour. Usually no other fix then replace the board.

SOURCE: Dell monitor shows blank screen, green power light stays on

Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should workfine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Oh boy, you need to call dell for that. the hdd is locked and only dell can give you the password. dont try unknow passwords its not gonna work. the password is related to the secuity of the machine. call dell and they will give you the password. in case by any reason you cant call dell. you need to repalce the hdd then. call dell they will give you the password free.

Problm with viewsonic va712b


sounds like the operating mode is at a frequency or refresh rate that is outside the viewsonic operating specifications when in normal mode. possible solution: in safe mode access control panel, system, devices (hardware) and look for display. do a right click and uninstall. repeat right click and "scan for hardware changes". That might reset the monitor operating modes but it also gives you a chance to reinstall drivers. If this does not work, try other monitor crt/lcd to see what happens.

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.

Dell wont start up


On the back of the chassis, there are 4 LEDs above the PS2 connections marked ABCD what do they indicate? During the boot process the lights normally flash on and off green, when the boot process is complete, they should all be green GGGG.

If any are Amber then they are indicating a power on self test (POST) failure. AAGG is bad memory for example.

Post the indications
