The computer is having problems displaying the video mode from the tower. Im not sure what kind of flat panel monitor you have but you should have a menu button there where you can choose video input. its either VGA(analog) or DVI(Digital). if you are using the monitor cable with the blue connector use VGA if its the white cable use DVI.

hope this resolves the problem. thanks.

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

My monitor comes up during start up but after 60 seconds or so it goes into sleep mode? and the monitor goes black


You might have it connected using the wrong port on the back of your computer. The monitor will display the BIOS and post messages but once it gets to windows it will turn off. The other possibility is you need to either reload the driver for your video card, change the default display device in the bios, or replace your video card.

DELL E153FPf doesn't show the image


OSD Warning Messages A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the monitor is out of sync range.
Cannot Display This Video Mode
This means that the monitor cannot synchronize with the signal that it is receiving from the computer. Either the signal is too high or too low for the monitor to use. See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this monitor. Recommended mode is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
Occasionally, no warning message appears, but the screen is blank. This could also indicate that the monitor is not synchronizing with the computer or the monitor is in a power save mode.

Cannon display this video mode


This message occurs when the display mode in the video settings is outside the parameters of the monitor.

One way to try and get past this is to boot to the F8 Menu (press F8 at startup till you get a windows start menu, and select the "Enable VGA Mode" for WIndows XP or "Low Resolution Mode" Vista/WIndows 7 and let the system boot to a 640 x 480 low resolution. Once at desktop, you can right click teh desktop and go to dispaly properties and increase the color and resolutiont to the OPTIMAL for you monitor.

The sreen is black, and the monitor light is orange


This usually indicates an input problem. There are number of things to check:

Make sure the screen is plugged into a working output on the video card - if you can, test the video with a different screen.

Try a different cable; Swap for the same type of cable, or, if available, use a different output method(Such as HDMI).

If using an adapter on the cable, try using a different adapter.

Test the cable on a different display, if possible.

Ultimately, if the video card, cable, and connector are all working, or the display is still not, its likely a bad input board within the display - if you're savvy and have some time to kill, replacement boards cost between 20-70 bucks on ebay.
