Text does not come through all the way

It wouldn't by chance be going to sleep or hibernating to save power would it? If so check your Power Option in the Control Panel.

If the desktop is going black after it boots up all the way then try another monitor because it could be your monitor or the video card inside the computer.

Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays without the problem you are having then the video card inside the computer is good, but your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor display fades away to black like your original monitor then your video card inside the computer is bad.

My sony vaio d screen sometimes go black

Sounds like the Monitor or Video Card might be going bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and plug it into the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works without going black, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor goes black like your original monitor, then your video card is going bad.

My monitor has an "input

Out of range typically means that the resolution in windows is set higher then the monitor can support. You will need to get into windows to remedy this.
You can do this one of two ways. You can try to hook up to a more advanced monitor and do it.
If you have video at first, you can press F8 as the computer is starting to boot up. this will open the advanced booting options menu. Select Run in VGA mode OR you can try Safe mode. Once you are in there you can change the resolution by Right clicking on the desktop and selecting Properties or Personalize. Then under display settings you can adjust the screen resolution using the slider bar. Set it to something like 1024x768 and then save exit and reboot normally. Once in there you can look up the max screen resolution your monitor supports and set it accordingly.
Hope this helps. Please vote if so.

Describe your dell dimension E521 wont boot and Problem my computer turns on but doesn't open it goes to a black screen with little flashing bar in top left corner nothing new was installed but there...

The 123 lights on tower translates as:

Routine system activity subsequent to video initialization.
Watch your monitor for on-screen messages.

Disconnect the video cable from the computer and see if you get floating color bars on display. If not, your monitor is defective.

Screen goes black. the power light is on, but the picture goes out. if i turn the power off, then on again it comes back for about 5 seconds, then goes black again.

Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.

The l226wtq goes black

Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Monitor won't stay on. Error message comes up that says "no input signal", then monitor goes out.

Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
