Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes dark over and over

Here is my solution:
Around the time it happened I did a few things to my computer.
I had been trying NOD, it ran out - so I removed the program. When I did that my McAfee was gone. So, I had to go through their web help to get it back. It didn't want to just download again through their site. I had put in a trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. After I got that all done my java wouldn't work for yahoo games. All this was within a few days of each other, even the darkening of the screen, over and over.
Tonight, I noticed on my newly added McAfee, has a registry cleaner. So I used it. I also went into my program file folders and saw that NOD was still in there - deleted it and a couple of other programs that I had tried once, but, thought they had been removed through the remove programs, in the control panel.
My Monitor screen works fine and I was going to spend 200 on a new monitor.

    I have the Dell E153FP Flat Panel monitor. As of past several days, the screen will light up when PC is booted but quickly goes dark. If I turn off the monitor and switch it back on, the screen will again come to life and then go dark again within 10 seconds. After repeating this off/on sequence numerous times, the screen will eventually remain functional...unless the PC is shut down. Upon reboot, i.e. the next morning...the monitor behaves as described above.

make sure the 'VGA' lead is plugged in properly. if still dark turn up the brightness on the monitor. if still dark after that, go onto the computer settings and turn up the brightness on the display settings.

Hope this helps!!!

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

Monitor goes dark


If the power light turns yellow, there is no signal being received by the monitor from your computer's graphics card. The screen will shut off (go into idle mode), which is a low-power state, that saves energy. Check that the cable on the back of your computer is plugged into the right graphics card (many PCs come with more than one, these days). There may be one built into the computer's mainboard, and another one may be on a separate graphics card located somewhere else on the machine. Only one of these will work on startup. If one doesn't work, try the other.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels


Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.

MAKE SURE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN YOUR MONITOR AND YOUR COMPUTER IS PLUGGED IN TIGHTLY AND CORRECTLY, YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW POWER CABLE OR A NEW CABLE THAT CONNECTS FROM YOUR MONITOR TO YOUR COMPUTER, TRY CONNECTING YOUR MONITOR ON ITS OWN PLUG, OR IN ANOTHER SOCKET AROUND THE HOUSE IT MIGHT NOT BE GETTING ENOGH POWER, IF IT IS NOT LCD MONITOR (NOT FLAT) THEN YOUR COMPUTERS BULB MIGHT CIRCUT WRONG
