Question about Dell UltraSharp 1905FP LCD Monitor
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?
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.

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.
