Dell Monitor problem

I got a used computer with a dell 17" LCD monitor and it worked great for the first couple of hours, now it says "In safe mode press any key to continue" and it won't unfreeze. I've tried unplugging for serveral hours, etc and nothing.

It's running on a Dell Dimension3000, with XP. I don't know exactly the model but the serial number is CN0D5428-72872 59K-6GPS.

Do you have any ideas how to fix

Boot XP in safe mode (Press F8 at the BIOS screen)
and reset your resolution to 1024x768 (15") or 1280x1024 (17") max. Looks like you've set a higher resolution than the monitor can display.

Hi there, maybe it is in your software. safe mode means that you have a software problem. check your system. ty

Monitor works in safe mode only


Monitor has no idea what mode the computer is in. Safe mode uses the default lowest common denominator video settings. I think I would try reinstalling the display adapter drivers.

Dell stuck in power safe mode


A blinking power light is not indicating power safe mode, it indicates a failure of the power supply board in the monitor. Here is a link to repair guides that show how to open and repair the power supply boards in the Dell E173 series of monitors;

I think you answered your own question--the computer works well with other monitors, but not this one.
I would suspect that this one is bad.
You might try to do this: Start the computer in safe mode and see if your monitor is reacting to video settings that are beyond it's capability (although if this is the case it should tell you it's out of range).
If it works in safe mode, try resetting the resolution to see if it will work with the new monitor (I seriously doubt that this is the problem).

You probably have tried this, but make sure monitor is set to correct display... i.e., Analog or Digital

Dell monitor black screen


If you have another monitor for desktop hook other monitor up then under hardware and software in control panel, add the dell monitor, then hook it up. Some operating systems need the driver to be added first. My brother almost threw away agood dell lcd monitor before I told him this, now he loves the lcd, works great.

Monitor problems


It seems that you are trying to use a graphic mode that your monitor doesn't support.

Restart windows in safe mode, go to Control Panel. Click on Display. Select settings and change to a resolution that is supported by your monitor (I don't know your model, but 1024x768 is a safe bet).

Restart the computer.


It should be working by now.


Good luck!

Dell E172FP 17 in. Flat Panel


Is the display connected?

If the computer is ON and the display is connected to the computer, the display will get out of energy save mode. If regardless of that you can't get your display working, sounds like you got a broken inverter driver.

Here is a website explaining the issue:

that sounds like a computer problem, not a monitor problem.  Plug the 'old' monitor in and see if your computer will boot with it.

Monitor problem


It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.
