    Another thing to clear up is to find out what you were doing before it started having this problem, be specific.

    SkinWill is correct. If a speaker is not hooked up and it is bad memory (typical cause of black screen), you will not hear the beep codes. It has been a while since I have seen the inside of that model Dell.

    Are there any beeps? if so what is the sequence of beeps? Also is there a speaker hooked up?

When I turn my computer on the monitor constantly flickers on and off. After about an hour this stops the the screen goes black about five times, but after that it works fine?


You need to download the latest graphices drivers and get the update for the BIOS.
If the screen flickers in the BIOS screen as well that means the sys has to be repaired for the screen.

I switched it on and begins to flicker and even with noise


1)Restore Monitor to factory settings using Menu buttons.

2)Perform Monitor self test

Turn the monitor off and disconnect the video cable from the computer. Turn the monitor back on.


If self test is displayed on screen without any issues, Monitor works fine

Hello I have a monitor DELL E228WFP and it turns black after a while. I have it about 1 year, and it turns black for no reason. I wan't to know how to make the flash light test on my monitor.


Okay, there is what is known as a Diagnostic Partition in all Dell computers. When you turn on your computer you need to Tap F12 when you see your BIOS load (which is the first thing you see on your screen when you turn on your computer.) You will then see several options, if you did it correctly, and the one on the very bottom usually says something along the line of "Boot to Utility Partition" and there will be an option for a screen test. Run it.

Please tell me if you need any further assistance.

I have asus p5p800-mx mother board morboard working fine and also start but on monitor no display and i also try to install additional graphics card then also no display


Have you tested the monitor to see if it is working? Is the vga cable good? Are you getting the BIOS start-up display screens when computer is booting up or no display at all? It is odd that both the on board video and video card would be bad I would double check the cable connection and the monitor. If the cable is good and the monitor is working properly than the board might be bad. You should at least get the BIOS start-up screen display.

Unable to see anything on the monitor monitor works fine ( tested ) unable to get to bios what i really need to know is can i reset the computer with just some keystrokes


Open the computer up, and locate the CMOS Jumper. Carefully hold the metal end of a screwdriver against it. This will reset any previous BIOS settings making you unable to see through your monitor.

F2 to open bios?

Monitor powering up and down at random


Check monitoc cableing. This might be the cause of cable having loose connection on the back of the monitor. (I mean data cable (VGA) not power cable)
Did you have a chance to check with another monitor? Will picture appear when cable on the back is moved?

Does this happen when you logon to bios screen? REstart PC and keep pressing F2. You will see bios screen - test unit there. If that is ok then everything is fine with the monitor.
Let me know if issue is not solved by checking cable and I will provide you futher troubleshooting steps.
Thanx

Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.

Second monitor - 'power save' mode.


Firstly, you can try to switch the second with the first monitor. Secondly, use only the second monitor as a main monitor and check that if there is still a problem or not. It might be because of BIOS. You can check and update BIOS with your computer manufacturer.
