Question about Dell UltraSharp 1800FP 18.1" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
Monitor went blank several times during the last week or and then suddenly went out. The monitor has power to it no indicator lites are lit.
A spare monitor was connected to the desktop its power lamp lites but its screen is blank versus the other which is totally dead. Video Card, motherboard?? Or the monitor and the aforementioned?? HELP
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.
