Dell 2405FPW powers on but doesn't display picture. I've tried both ports, DVI, and VGA. Also, the LED lights turn on, such as the power, and input lights. When the monitor turns on, it looks relatively the same if it was displaying a pure black image. I'm not sure what else to add.

HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.
Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.
I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.
YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).
Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn
on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet.
If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or
moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the
power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection
to the monitor is not loose.
Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA
inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If
it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to
VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is
compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture
quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible
with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if
The Dell M1210 hos only a VGA output or s-video output, both being analog. If you are connecting the M1210 VGA to the DVI input on the monitor then this will not work. You need to connect to the VGA input on the monitor.

Sorry, but what do you mean with mane (can't find a correct translation to dutch)
Do you mean advantage, or do you mean what you can do with it?
Normally a DVI to VGA adapter can be used to connect a display with a VGA connector to a DVI port. If you have 2 ports VGA and DVI, maybe you can connect 2 displays to your pc. It's great working with multiple displays, making your desktop twice the size. For example: you can open your mail program in one display and your web browser in the other.
woliphint, Did you try Dell to see if they can do a swapout? You send them your's +$40-$90 and they send you a refurbished same model with new CCF tubes+power supply/inverter? A lot of LCD/FPD displays have been subject to having their SMPS's fail due to poor quality electrolytic filter capacitors that can't endure the thermal stress inside the display. Nearly all brands are affected, not just Dell. See what you get when you search web for 'swollen caps' or 'bad caps in lcd's' or 'lcd repairs' or 'monitor re-capping' or similar type of search. You should always state age or approximate usage hours of the monitor when posting to fixya. We don't know when a 2405FPW was produced and sold. As long as you haven't cracked, shattered, or abused the LCD panel you should be able to get it swapped and or repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or firstname.lastname@example.org
Bye for now.
No, won't work as teh monitor does not have sound capabilities. However, this will work if you have some sound input into the monitor, like if you use the HDMI (which includes sound) to send signals to the monitor, instead of the VGA / DVI connector. (All sound output on a system is from the sound card on the system only, monitor sound options are usually just an extension of the same)
This card does not allow you to Multi-Display with the VGA port and the S-video port. If you put a DVI to VGA port adaptor (not supplied) on the DVI port, you can Mulit-Display two VGA monitors and (presumably) a VGA (from the DVI port) and S-video monitor.
This is not explained anywhere and the card does not come with a DVI to VGA port adaptor, so I wa only able to work this out after I bought the DVI to VGA port adaptor.
