Borrow a monitor from a friend. If it works on your computer, you need a new connector, or, better yet, a new monitor.

Dell desktop computer wont turn on


Hello, make sure there is a green light on the front of the monitor, if not then no connection from pc to monitor, Make sure monitor is plugged in and powered up, and cable is connected into the pc. If all this is connected, then you either have bad video card, or motherboard for video or bad monitor.

I just have a OPTIPLEX SX280 and try to connect to my old montor (VGA), when I turn on power it seem run starting but the it show up on monitor screen "can not display video mode". What is that...


When you first power on the computer tap the <F8> key to bring you to a menu that has the option of running in safe mode. If the computer boots up in safe mode and you are able to see the display on your monitor then your current video drivers are not supported for the old monitor.

Are you using the same VGA cable. Try to use the same VGA cable which is there is in Old Monitor

Though it can be issue with the resolution setting also of the Video

For that when you plug in your desktop to old monitor bring the Resolution to the minimum and then Connect it to your New Monitor

Cant use my rad 5 with a desktop Dell computer with Vista


Temporarily connect another monitor to your computer.

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.

Disconnect the other monitor, and connect your RAD.

It should display.

Try changing the screen-resolution to 1024 by 768, and "test" it.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no


One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.
