You can hook up a standard monitor (15-pin vga cable) to the vga port on a laptop. Just go to your display settings (right click the desktop, properties, advanced tab) and set the proper settings there and you'll be good to go.

I have an older Dell Ultrasharp monitor that is stuck in Powersav


Check that the "data" cable is tightly-connected at both ends.

Connect the data-cable to another computer (laptop?) to see if it works with the laptop.

Try another monitor with your computer, to see if your computer is putting out the correct video signals.

I need power cords for my monitor


The monitor needs a power cord and a signal cable. The power cord is a standard 3-prong detachable cord just like the one on nearly every desktop computer and many other electronic appliances.

The signal cable may be one of two types, depending on your computer's video connector. The monitor has connectors for both VGA (a D-shaped connector with 15 pins) and DVI (a rectangular connector) inputs. You need a cable with whichever type of connector fits your computer.

You should be able to find the power cord at Radio Shack, any of the big office supply places, or retailers who sell computers. The signal cable may be available there as well, or you can order from a number of online vendors.

The monitor also allows you to plug in a USB cable from your computer so you can plug in USB devices like a keyboard or mouse. For that you need the same kind of USB cable you would use to connect a printer.

You can view or download a copy of the monitor user's guide at Dell's site here:

Dell monitor back removal


This can go one of 2 ways..very easy or very hard.
Having said that here we go.
  • Get a towel and lay it on a flat surface.
  • Remove the 4 screws from the stand and remove it.
  • looking from under the monitor you should see 2 small notches between the front and rear covers.
  • Carefully insert a flat blade screwdriver (not too far) into the hole and lift upwards. It should pop. Do the same on both sides.
  • Carefully pop it all the way around (without using anything but light pulling pressure.)
Hope that helps =)

Side USB ports


You need to connect a USB cable from your PC to the USB port under the monitor.
It is a standard usb cable used by printers with a flat plug on one end and a squareish plug on the other.
You should also have 2 more usb ports under the screen as well. There are normally 4 on Dell screens. 2 side, 2 under, and the one square plug to connect to the PC.

Dell ultrasharp 15 inch flat panel lcd has no power and does not turn on at all


Disconnect the monitor from the computer, then turn it on. You should see three bands of color (red, green, and blue), which is the self-test feature of the monitor. If you can see all three colors, the monitor itself is probably OK, and it will mean that you need to check the connector on the monitor cable, the connector on the back of the videocard in the back of the computer, or reseat the videocard itself. One of the connectors could be damaged, or you could have a bent, broken, or missing pin within the connector. If a pin is bent and touching the shell of the connector, it can send the video signal to ground, making the monitor appear to be dead. BE VERY CAREFUL if you try to straighten the pin; they are fragile, and if you break the pin off completely, you will have even more problems to deal with... If one or two of the color bands are not visible, the LCD monitor is defective, and you'll have to decide whether it is cheaper to repair it, or simply to replace it... If you still can't locate the problem after checking the system as I've described, get another monitor to test the computer with. If the second monitor works properly, you most likely have a problem with the Dell LCD; if the problem still exists after switching monitors, then you most likely have a problem with the computer, and NOT with the Dell monitor...
