Dell front panel power light abcd lights yellow


Does the monitor go out completely, no power? Or just lose a signal? Check ALL cables, AC and Monitor cables. Could be a Graphics adapter issue or Monitor , try another monitor.Your computer has a few miles on it , right? You could buy a PCI Graphics card if the monitor is OK.

If it works intermittently then it's either a loose monitor data cable, loose monitor power cable, or loose graphics card. When you say it freezes up, I'm thinking most likely your graphics card is loose, make sure you screw it tight to hold it securely. The power must be off in order to be working with a graphics card. Also ground your body's static electricity to a non-painted piece of steel such as a desk to prevent shocking expensive hardware.

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

Intel Desktop D845PEBT2 could not boot up


Hi,

i,d suggest that the power cut may have been a surge or spike.

This May have blown your power pack, and caused possible motherboard Damage.

** Did you use the same lead for the PSU** and have you checked the (main fuse in the Plug ? )
If the monitor light remains orange, this is a possible graphics card fault, or driver that is not allowing the monitor to come out of standby mode. You could try installing a different graphics card, or swapping the monitor cable to the on-board graphics card if it has 1.
If none of the above works, assume the motherboard has suffered damage.

Mike @ Compurepair.

24" DOA Soyo Monitor


What size monitor were you using before? If you were using a smaller monitor and everything was fine maybe this new monitor is out of range for the graphics card. I've found that not all graphics cards, especially older ones, will not run a monitor as large as 24 inches. If you can, connect this new 24 inch monitor to a computer with a more powerful graphics card. If it works then you will know that the problem is with your computer. Also connect your old monitor and go into control panel and see what range and resolution your graphics card will support. You may need a more powerful card to run the new monitor.

The computer will power up, however, the monitor will stay black and say "Monitor going to sleep." It works sometimes, but the screen will get look really pixally.


Check the cord between your monitor and the computer, and try replacing it.
you could also try installing the latest graphics driver for your pc

Monitor doesn't work


When you got the pc, you should have been given a starter pack with some CD-ROM's in the pack, one of them should be the drives for the monitor, you might need to use anothermonitor to see the instructions, but the basic graphics card should power the monitor enough to set things up, until then you won't be able to adjust the settings.
