Re: Monitor not showing contents anymore.

Try to toggle the monitor screen, hold down the function key and hit the F8 key(usually). Wait a few seconds and try again if it doesnt work.

Dell e178wfpc monitor shows power on light but no display.

You should check if the vga cable is tightly connected from monitor to cpu. If the cable is connected properly,then the problem must be with your monitor. Check with any other monitor. If you hear a beep beep sound, when you start the computer then your RAM has been damaged or not properly connected.

Monitor started to show an all bright white screen, could not view desktop. Now screen will not come on at all.

Sounds like a bad monitor, but just to be sure, hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! The Sceptre Monitor is the issue, the cause is the main board on the back of the display panel processes in coming video signals to correctly display the content, to repair would not justify the cost, cheaper to replace. Now if both screens show the same problem, it will be the video graphics card in the computer.

No input signal

that is the problem of cpu not a monitor to confirm disconnect signal cable and power on. monitor will show "no signal check signal cable" it means that monitor is ok and fault lies in cpu .then open the cpu and disconnect ram and listen the beep. contineus beep should be heard then ram is faulty replace it. if no beep heard then motherboard is faulty .

My monitor will not come on, the on/off light flashes occasionally and the monitor gives over a very brief light

make sure that your cpu is working. if the cpu is dead, there will be no display in the monitor. If the monitor light is flashing as you said, it could be the CPU not sending video signal to the monitor. also check if the cpu beeps when you start your computer. if not, check your cpu. try to re-seat your RAM modules. this will solve most of these types of problems

L1932TQ Fails on Desktop, works on Notebook

it simply means that your cpu is not giving back signal to your monitor to process, in fact, it is a cpu problem that is why there is nothing to display in your monitor.

Your cpu froze because of that usb thing. the only way to unfreeze it is to manually reset your hardware in this order.

1. RAM modules. If you can unplug your RAM (memory modules) connected in your motherboard, please do it. Just unplug the modules and then plug it back in. if you have 2 rams, then interchange them when plugging it back. this will force your mobo to refresh its resources.

2. CPU. if you can pull out your cpu chip, then do it. this will refresh your cpu setting in your mobo. (mobo = motherboard)

I would first recommend reseting the bios, if the monitor still is black then it may be a problem with the graphics card

Shows nothing but cross horizontal bands

The monitor may not be able to handle the settings of the video adapter. If you boot into safe mode (tap F8 key as the computer starts), does the display appear correctly? If so, then you just need to turn down the settings (resolution, color quality, frequency) to the lowest possible settings. If the display still appears wrong, then it may be something wrong with the monitor. You can try connecting the monitor to another CPU and see if you can replicate the results.
