Question about Computers & Internet

My monitor will not come on on my inspiron 8500 laptop. It worked fine then after turning it off and back on the monitor wouldn't come on. I can hook it to a desk top monitor and that works. But how do I know if it is the monitor or the Geforce 4200 video card that is bad?

If the computer works with another monitor on it, it is likely a bad monitor. Try hooking the suspect up to another desktop to see if it turns on. If it doesnt turn on, you might want to call to get the monitor replaced

Dell Inspiron 4100 flickering off and on Makes it extremily hard to work with . How can I tell whether it is the display or something else?


What happens when you hook it up to a external monitor? If it works fine with a external monitor, then your laptop monitor is going bad. If it does it with an external monitor, then its more than likely an issue with your laptops video adapter.
