Question about Dell Dimension E521 PC Desktop
My desktop screen is gone out ( black screen). how can i solve it?
Make sure the light on the monitor is on, if it is, turn it off, and turn off computer, and unplug or turn off power switch on your surge protector. On the back of the monitor, there is a cable that comes from the computer, take it off and put it back on. That same cable, take it off from the computer, and put it back on. Now turn them all 3 on (don't forget the surge protector hehe). If that doesn't work, borrow a monitor, and try it. If that works, your monitor is probably bad. Oh, there may be a reset switch on the back, push it in, then turn them on. If BOTH monitors do not work, try a different cable, if not, something inside the PC is bad or loose. You can unplug computer, and take off the case. If you are somewhat mechanically inclined, take off the cable for the monitor, and if there is a card that is screwed down tight, but is removable, take it out, and put it carefully, and evenly back in. Put cable back on and try it again. If that doesn't work, it is time for a new video card, or mother board. If you have a buddy with an old compatible video card lying around, see if you can borrow it. (It may be bad also, from lying around, especially without a static bag.) If that still does not work, probably let someone replace the motherboard, or just get a new (used) PC, can you say Craigslist? Just be careful, a LOT of them are way overpriced, but there are good deals there too.
