Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
Well, no one is jumping to the forefront to help you yet with bids for money for your solution because it's probably not the best of news. So, do me a favor and don't trash my rating because I'm going to try my best to help you know exactly what's wrong.
Your problem is almost certainly not software so it can only be one of 2 culprits; your monitor or your video card on the motherboard of your desktop. Here's how to find out which one it is. Turn off the computer and disconnect everything and take the tower to where you can connect to a monitor you know is working fine. Connect up to that monitor and power up.
If the computer displays properly then you know you need to repair or replace the monitor. If it doesn't, then you know your issue is with the video card on the motherboard.
This will cost you nothing except time and some lugging around of your 'puter, but you'll know what's up and be able to make an intelligent decision without somebody taking advantage of you on the repair end.
Best of Luck!!
