Try the monitors connections first, then try the monitor on some other computer (try the other cables as well).

If the connections fix the problem - all OK.
If it works on some other computer - then it is not the monitor, more likely the video card. If this is the case - replace the video card.

If the monitor still does not work on another computer, then send it in for inspection and repair (is it still in Warranty?) or purchase a new one (expensive).

By the way, I don't know what you expect to do once you get inside the monitor (unless you are an Electronics Engineer by Trade which I doubt from your question).

Good luck, and please post a response so I can see if anything worked.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Monitor is bad for sure. Try another known good monitor on your computer and if the problem stops then you know for sure the original monitor is bad. Hope this helps.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

Dell monitor


Sounds like there is a heat related problem. Probably a bad solder joint somewhere. Could be hard to track and would probably cost you more money to repair and it does to purchase a replacement monitor. 17" LCDs go for around $150 these days.

If you have the (white connectors) DVI cable correctly plugged into the computer, when you turn the computer on, it should recognize it and make the needed changes automatically. Maybe not if the PC was already on even though it's plug&play.

If you have the model number of the monitor, you can google for the manual.

do you have an aftermarket video card. In the bios you have to tell the computer if it is looking for a agp/onboard or PCI video card. Either that or the video driver or settings are wrong Try safe mode to check
