I never had a problem with the monitor before and after connecting and disconnecting a few things after my computer crashed now this green 1 light is on near the circular buttons at the base of the monitor. Is there a way to make the 1 disappear. Just wanted to make sure there's nothing dangerous to my computer. Thanks for your insight. I assume the monitor can handle dvi and vga?

Hello,have you installed new motherboard or CPU? Follow these steps again 1) Disconnect the power cord from the back of the
computer & open up the case.
2) Wear an anti-static glove or
at very least discharge your static by touching a metal surface or power supply
Disconnect the main 20pin ATX power connector from the motherboard
& the square 4pin ATX2 power connector
4) Remove any PCI
cards you have & disconnect ALL drive cabling from the MOTHERBOARD.
Also disconnect any internal USB fly leads from the motherboard.
You should now have ONLY the cpu+heatsink/fan, memory & video card
installed. Locate the round silver battery in the bottom right corner of
the board. Just below it, you'll see a plastic jumper cap. This cap
should be covering 2 pins (pins 1 + 2) with pin 3 bare. It will be
marked JP1. Move the jumper to cover pins 2-3 instead. Leave in this
position for about 30 seconds, then return the jumper to its original
position (pins 1-2).
6) Reconnect the square 4pin ATX2 power
connector & the main 20 pin ATX power connector. Make sure that the
case speaker or buzzer is connected also.
7) Make sure the only
external devices connected are the keyboard/mouse & monitor.
Reconnect the power lead & power on the system
What is the Operating system on the laptop ? If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network. If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network. If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network. For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Hi sglick - you will need to do a few simple trouble shooting steps to pinpoint the problem, as this can be cause by several different things.
Follow these steps and reply back with your findings:
1. Unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
2. Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
3. If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
4. Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots. With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting or sending a proper video signal to the monitor. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
If doing all of this doesn't change your issue of no video after seeing it pop on, try the monitor on a different computer/laptop, and if you have one, a different monitor on the system with the problem.
Let us know what you find following these steps and we can figure out what to do next.
Remove the base by the button release or 4 screws on the back. On the bottom of the monitor near the corners you will find two thin slots where you can insert a thin wide blade screwdriver or pry tool. Very gently pry the back from the bezel toward the center from both of these slots until the bottom is seperated, then contilue from the slots around the corners and up the sides until you have seperated the entire back from the bezel. Lay the monitor on the bezel and remove the back ( do not try to remove the bezel, at least not yet). Lift the tape that secures the ribbon cable from the bezel buttons to the logic board. Unplug the ribbon cable from the logic board by pulling on the connector (not the cable). Remove the cable covers from the back of the case (one has a screw, the other has a lift tab) and disconnect the lamp connectors and ribbon cable connectors (do not pull on the wires). remove four screws and lift the metal back from the screen.
I just did it an hour ago. It took about 20 minutes to figure it out. I laid the monitor on a furniture pad to keep from scratching the face. 1. Remove the three screws from the bottom of the back. 2. Insert a thin bladed screwdriver in the bottom slot near one of the bottom corners. The back is held in place by some clever latches that were designed to snap together, never to unsnap again. I work a pair of screwdrivers around the bottom and then up the sides and finally got it loose at the top. 3. Carefully lift the small clip that holds the small ribbon cable connecting the "buttons" to the main unit. 4. I assume you're trying to get to the capacitors inside so, carefully disconnect the small cables by squeezing the plug to release the clip. 5. Remove all of those nice little screws that hold the metal parts to the back.
Good luck! By the way, I use an empty egg container (with the compartments numbered) to place the small parts in while I'm disassembling. When I'm ready to rebuild, I assemble the parts in the reverse order that I put them in the container.
There are bulbs that light up the display so you can see it on the inside. They go out, just like the bulb in your bathroom. No way to fix this and get the dam thing back together. Toss it and get a new one. I've got photos of the one I took apart. It's a mess. But very cool to look at.
