Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor vertical lines

I booted my computer up as normal, but when the prompt for my windows password (Windows XP Home Service Pack 2) and blue field came up, I had vertical lines off the the white password enter area and windows picture blue field. I also saw in the top left of the screen a circle with verticle lines. I continued to enter the internet, thinking it would go away, I checked my monitor connections and they were all plugged in properly, upon accessing Yahoo, my screen went to a few lines here and there to a complete fuzzy red lines all over. Since, I take care of my equipment, I was dumfounded as to why this is occuring. I checked my monitor settings on the bottom right of the monitor itself and clicked factory restore. Did I get rid of the problum or from it reoccuring again?

Dear Choji,

If obviously the problem has not occured again then you have solved it on your own. Bravo to that. You shoud give yourself a proud pat on your back. But if the problem still exists, then its with the device driver settings of the monitor. Try reinstalling the monitor by reinstalling its drivers.

If this still does not help then refer to an authoised service personel.

Display only in safe mode


It is possible that your computer is not able to start up (normally), e.g. problem with your Windows XP, Windows 7, etc. ... e.g. you see a blinking cursor at the top left corner of your (blank) blue screen.
If this is the case, you can try to repair your disk first ... in save mode, get to a DOS prompt, i.e. >
You may see options/commands (at the DOS > prompt) by typing HELP. One of the programs that attempts to repair the disk is CHKDSK. Type at the > prompt: CHKDSK /? to see the options
Then, run the CHKDSK command to repair the boot disk.
After completing the chkdsk, type EXIT (to go back to Windows). If necessary, shut down and power up again and see if the boot disk has been repaired.
In the worst case, you may have to restore your disk from backup, or boot from a back-up (boot disk / CD) to fix the boot disk problem. But first try to save/store all your (personal) files (while in SAFE mode) before you reformat the disk and re-install the operating system (from an installation / boot CD disk)

Windows XP Missing configuration?


Sounds like you may have bad RAM. Try removing all of the RAM modules on your motherboard and put only one in the first slot. Start the computer and see if it works.

SCREEN READS NTLDR IS MISSING


Hi TAPOLA,

If you are getting this message, then rhe problem is not with your monitor at all. It is actually with your Windows XP operating system. Your monitor is working fine. Though to fix the problem you would need to get your Windows XP CD and boot off the disc, if you boot from the CD you will get a brief message "Press any key to boot from CD..." as soon as you see that you need to press any key within 5 seconds. If done successfully you'll see a different screen and its a blue screen with loading files on it. Afterwards it will be on the setup page so press "R" for recovery console and on the command prompt you need to type this command: CHKDSK /R and it will run scan and repair of Windows.It will take sometime, afterwards it will bring you on the prompt and you just need to type EXIT to reboot the system. Just let it reboot to Windows and see if it works.

Hope his helps!

Peace! :)

Monitor not displaying


Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps. 1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on. 2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage. 3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left. 4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have. NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry. 5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry. NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode. 6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done. 7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab. 8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers.
