    Thanks eagle. Loose solders on the inverter board eh? Sounds like a job for a professional. I am assuming you take off the cover and hunt about for the suspect solder join? What a pain! I have some 0.5 and an iron though, I am just a bit hesitant about fixing it myself.

Yes amigo. You are having loose solders on the inverter board.. You will need to find and solder it right.. Use 0.5 or 0.8mm lead to solder. 0.5 is more advisable though.

    Well thats upto you but if you wanna do it yourself make sure you turn off the power and disconnect the cord from power supply. As i always say "your life and limb is worth much more than this!"

    Sai.

It is most likely the cable that connects your computer to your monitor. I just had this same issue myself recently and it was my monitor that was going off and on. Try another VGA cable that runs from your computer tower to your monitor. See if that resolves your issue.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

The screen flick when connected to Samsing Sync


Hello there!

Screen flickering can be caused by instability of cable you are using, or it can be also caused by difference between power input, so check your power plug ,where your monitor and pc are plugged, make sure they are ok for your region, and check those cabels. Also check settings on monitor for what input you are using DVI or VGA or both at the same time.

It won't start it is black


Dell systems have built in no post diagnostics, you can check them here:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4282412-find_no_post_diagnostic_information_dell

if the system is completing post, but not showing any display, then you have either a Video Card issue or a monitor issue. Things to check:
  1. Ensure the monitor has the proper input selected for the cable that is connected (VGA, DVI, DisplayPort etc)
  2. Reseat cable connections
  3. If system was recently moved, make sure cable connected to correct Video Card Connection (Some systems have 2, and if an expansion card is inserted, generally on-board video is disabled.)
  4. If still no video and system has both expansion and onboard video, remove the expansion card, try the on-board.
  5. If still no go, try a different monitor
  6. if all the above fails, replace video card

Monitor shows VGA no input signal DVI no input signal then monito going to sleep


This sounds like a video card driver issue or the card it self. Make sure all cables are plugged in snug. Once done try to boot in to safe mode by restarting the computer and while it is starting keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. If this works it is driver issue. If nothing happens it is the card it self. Might have to take it to a authorized repair shop. Hope this helps.

Hi,how do I know wheather I need DVI or VGA cables to connect CPU to a Monitor.I sold monitor when I got laptop now I want set up the Dell Dimension 3100 as aback up,so I'm looking at wide sreen monitors...


Most of the Widescreen monitors come with DVI as well as VGA connector. A VGA connector and DVI connectors are different in many aspects. First of all the DVI connector would be white in color and VGA would be blue.
VGA connector has 15 pins and DVI has 24 +1 pin

The power light keeps flashing orange when trying to switch my pc on i only get an orange flashing light no other life in it whatsoever........


It means to say that it is not getting enough power on the computer, check the power cable at the back of the tower and make sure the power cable is connected tightly. You can try taking it out and then putting it back in again to make sure it is connected firmly.

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.
