Question about Dell UltraSharp 1905FP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Pop goes the weasel...

My father (84 yrs old) turned on the computer and everything booted up ok to the desktop and as he was mousing around he heard a pop and the screen went blank. He turned computer off and on several times by pressing the power button, but nothing. Power light on monitor constant green, power light on computer flashing green... I am not physically there to check it out but suspect a new monitor might be the cheapest solution?

    The strangest thing... He turned the computer on a day or so later and everything worked fine and has worked as usual since then. It's a mystery...

Chances are a capacitor has blown. They normally make such lovely poping noises when they die.
What will of course now be happening is the voltage inside where that capacitor was will be unstable and it could very well completely fail in the near future.
I would reccomend you get it to a repair shop sooner rather then later for a cheap simple repair rather then an expensive monitor replacement.

Black screen on HP Touchsmart 310, any ideas?


i guess your computer is suffering from Software Driver Conflict.

because in safe mode, windows does not load any third party drivers, but its own. so your computer turns ON.

it it NOT AT ALL any hardware related issue, so you dont need to buy/replace anything.

tell me more about your operating system and your computer details, so i can help you properly

No mouse for my echines


The best option it to purchase or borrow another mouse. I'm sure a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker has a spare mouse.

You could try booting into Safe Mode and see if it will go to your desktop without a mouse. If so you'll have to use the keyboard shortcuts to get around.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

The mouse that comes with my Dell computer (2 yrs old) doesn't move smoothly on the mouse pad and is difficult when trying to zero in on a speciific site. Thanks for your help.


The solution may depend on the type of mouse you are using. If it is a ball mouse, you may need to clean the ball, because dirt can throw off the sensors in the mouse. If it's a PS2 mouse connection (the round connector, not USB) try using a different mouse if you have one around. If it is a laser mouse, try plugging it into a different USB port on the computer, or try using a different mouse pad. If it is a wireless mouse, it may need new batteries, or may need to be synced up with the receiver again.

It will boot up to the windows screen and freezes. There is no mouse control.


WIN XP ONLY!

Upon booting, beofre Windows Logo, press F5 key to get computer to boot into SAFE MODE/Administrator. See if you have mouse control under this mode. If yes, then there's a good chance that the mouse is OK .

once in SAFE MODE and are able to regain mouse, the chances are good that you can just restart the computer and everything will return to "normal".

Suggestion #1: reboot computer to NORMAL after having sucessful SAFE MODE mouse test.

Suggestion #2: see if you have a recovery point (system restore) before the mouse issue came about.

Emachines T2385 startup problem


Psu is a Power Supply issue but the black screen with a blinking white line is not.
The blinking white line can mean there is no instructions to tell the Computer to boot up. Which could be possibly the system battery (cmos) or Hard Drive.
I would narrow those 3 things down first.

RAM upgrade gone wrong?


Did you already try using last know good configuration?
When your computer boots instead of f10 press F8. Then select last known good configuration and enter.

if it didn't work try booting up the computer without the memory see if it will have the same problem.

I agree. The monitor probably blew a capacitor.
Time for a nice new LCD monitor.
