It is likely that the monitor in question does not support the video settings you currently have your graphics card or chipset set to.

If you are using Windows XP reboot your system hitting <F8> until a menu appears to select a mode to start XP in. Choose "Standard VGA". This should resolve the immediate problem.

Since you don't mention the model number of the monitor in question I couldn't look up the supported screen resolutions for you but right clicking an empty space on the screen and selecting "properties" should bring up the video settings dialog box where you can try various screen resolution settings [rebooting each time] until you find one you like that works with the monitor.

Dell 17" lcd manufactured 2004 CN-0F5035-64180-48G-1X2S wont turn on. power button flashes green, no display will come on. can i get a repleacement from dell? i bought it from a friend.


Dell will not give you a replacment since you were not the one whom purchased it...if you were they would only give you one if it was still under warranty.

Can you try hooking it upto another tower to see if the monitor is at fault and not the PC.

Did you friend show you that it was running before you bought it. Perhaps he sold you a monitor that was about hit the end.
