I have a dell se198 wide screen monitor. Yesterday when I was watching a movie on my PC, my screen went blank but the power light on the monitor remained blue, and it turns amber in power saving mode. So I went to my monitor and switched it off and on again it came up for a couple of seconds then it again went black. I have just put a lot of money in my graphic card, new cabinet motherboard and processor, I am typing all this on a black screen, is there any way I can fix this because for those few seconds the screen is absolutely perfect. Please Help.!

try running it in safe mode tap f5 when you see the dell screen. if it boots to safe mode remove the driver for the display adapter in device manager. the dell computer doesn't know what kind of monitor it's plug into. install the soyo monitor driver
Hi my name is Rain.
Ok so that im clear on the problem. your monitor will come on but in a matter of seconds it goes to a black screen?
If this is the problem. The answers you seek will most likely
be in your video card.
Try this test:
Unplug monitor from the computer.
Turn on monitor .
Look for monitor self test screen.
If you see the monitors self test screen then your problem indeed is
the video card . You will need to replace the video card inside of the computer.
mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.
We have a dis-assebly and repair guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/monitor_repair.htm The problem is usually the driver transistors, our guide shows where they are and what to replace to get your monitor back running again.
Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
The following steps are how to examine
what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen
went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or
not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best
angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or
any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside
screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot
see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you
have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It
may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board
because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a
technician to do so.
Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know. Thank you, Tan
