Dell E173FP 17 monitor went dark and not working. I restart the pc it shows for only few second and went out again. I plug in one other monitor in my pc and it work fairly well. So something not right with...


There are three possible cause why your monitor went black and start working..

1. If your monitor is dead set.. no reaction or lights turn on after power on.. then it needs to check if there is blown capacitor in its power supply section..

2. The high voltage ballast transformer of the backlight inverter is burned - it needs to be replaced so that it will not have a direct effect on the power supply section of the monitor.

3. The backlight inverters are all busted - the backlight was located at the upper and lower back edge of the monitor.. If these lights are busted then all that will be seen in your monitor is black screen.. It will need to be replaced so that image display will come out from your screen..

These 3 reason and its solutions can only be done by yourself if you have the knowledge, proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of the monitor and replace the problem parts....

Otherwise, bring your monitor to a credible technician and if there is warranty,, avail of this...

Hope that answer your question..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

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

Monitor is black with message "Cannot Display This Video Mode".

the computer is having problems displaying the video mode from the tower. Im not sure what kind of flat panel monitor you have but you should have a menu button there where you can choose video input. its either VGA(analog) or DVI(Digital). if you are using the monitor cable with the blue connector use VGA if its the white cable use DVI.

hope this resolves the problem. thanks.

Dell E173FP temperature sensitive 17" monitor

No. The best way is to take off the rear panel and insulator cover. Look on the board for "p/n: xxxxxxx" for the exact part number. I've found this to be the best way to ensure the correct board.
Also, once you're inside, you could see how many CCFLs you have.
