Question about Dell E551 15" CRT Monitor

Hello, I just got a used computer system. I hooked it up and everything was fine but then I went to power it down and can't get the moniter to come on without powering itself off! Do I have a bad moniter or what?

Very possible. The easiest way to troubleshoot this is to try another monitor. Borrow one from a friend and try it.

What you should try at this point is shut everything down, Unplug your desktop, hook it back up to tour moniter and boot. If you now get a picture, go to your device manger and click on display adaptors. If you have more than one selection. choose your monitor. Let me know if this works.

Just replaced power supply unit from a 250 watt to a 480 watt and now computer comes on but will go into power saving mode instead of booting up and keyboard doesn't stay lit like it used to.The system is...


Which power supply went bad? The 250watt or the 480watt? If a power-supply goes bad (dies), it generally takes some (if not all) hardware with it.

Computer would not boot up, only showed red light


I'd say power supply first.

If you have an expansion slot filled with a video card, remove the video card (provided you have onboard video connector as well) then try to reboot. I just went through similar issues with an GForce video card, it went bad, but the machine appeared to boot althugh I couldn't see the screen. Removed the card & it came up using minimal VGA drivers provide with WinXP.

Obviously you cannot check the video driver if you're not booting up...and seeing the screen.

Find a buddy with a regular monitor and hook it up and try to boot. Dell monitors sometimes require their propietary drivers, so write down the model when you take your pc to a friend's place, and DL the driver and install it (provided you got it to boot up)

Qdi motherboard only 200watt power supply hooked up and the 4 12v pin is not hooked up computer turns on but moniter doesnt


you need min 250w power supply with the right connector.
do not try to splice any of the power wire. it will work but you will get burn later.

Monitor blinks no image


first you need to isolate the problem to either the computer or the moniter. I would sugust that you hook a know good moniter to the compter and go from there. If the other moniter works then you have a moniter issue aif not chek the video card in the computer. good luck
