Hi! Most modern monitors have on/off switches that are NOT actual power controlling devices. (i.e. they simply tell an IC chip to cut power to the display section while leaving the rest of the power supply energized.) In the earlier monitors, when you flipped that power switch, you actually cut AC power to the whole unit. Now, with today's faster computers, LCD and plasma displays, instant-on is the norm. Regardless if the button is physically damaged(usually pressed too hard) or the circuit is defective, unless you are a tech you'll have to take the unit in for repair. Is the monitor under any type of warranty? Was there a storm recently? Do you use a surge protector? If the display was damaged at all by the storm, there is a very good chance you'll be covered by the surge protector warranty.(that's what you paid for)---hope I was of assistance---Rick

Try unplugging it from the electrical outlet for about 25 seconds. Then plug it back in and go to your settings if the power button turns the monitor back on if it does not work try it on another working computer. Sometimes this happens when the settings are two high of resolution when your graphics card cannot handle it. Hopefully the issue is not the monitor going bad. Thanks for using FixYa! Do not forget to place a vote for me if I helped you in any way. John

My 20 inch dell monitor is only using the left corner the screen and you can only see part of the desktop is visable and the text is upside down.


mcdevito75 here, Press the AUTO button on your monitor, if this does not work, press the MENU button, there you should see a square box with 4 arrows, these are used to center your picture on your monitor, use the left / right arrows also on your monitor to adust the screen picture with this box woth the 4 arrows from Menu.

I have Dell windows XP. The monitor's contrast 100 shows in middle of screen sporadically. I've been told it's not a virus. Do I need to replace it? It is from 2002.


Try pressing the menu button on the monitor to see if this will close it. Or maybe there is a return button on there with an arrow that looks like the arrow on the enter key on the keyboard.

Try unplugging the monitor and leaving it for 60 seconds then plugging it back in. If this doesnt' solve it then it possibly is a fault with the monitor

Dell monitor


Who manufactured it? Better call them to check if the monitor's still under warranty. Im thinking it has to be replaced and may eventually fail completely.
