My home dell computer monitor has went black with a box on it. * The floating dialog box appeared on screen (against a black background) * The dialog box float around the screen without any visual...


The dialog box you are seeing means that the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.

check your cable going from the monitor to the computer. if the cable seems ok, hold the power button on your towerr until it turns off, then wait 5 seconds and push the computer power button again.

Cheers

Dell gx270 not communicating with monitor. self test feature check is floating on monitor


This is a self check for the monitor. This self test means that the monitor is not getting a signal from your computer. Have you installed any video cards in this computer?

If its onboard video meaning you never installed a video card then your video card is bad. Try purchasing a video card and installing it in the computer and your problem should be fixed. I hope this helps you. Any other questions feel free to ask thanks.

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove both Digital (white connector) and the Analog(blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor.
    The floating 'Dell Self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen on a black background if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green. Also, depending upon the selected input, one of the dialogs shown below will continuously scroll through the screen.
    1. This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
    2. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable, then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
    If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
