    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.

Check your video card and try to go to windows recovery console or advance boot up options it seems the monitor self test passes!! if your video card is fine then its a video driver issue.

Samsung Syncmaster913v Monitor. The screen is totally black, but when I remove lead from computer it shows "Check Signal Cable" in colour. Also when I press Menu, in top left hand corner...


If the color still works, and it works on other computers, there is something wrong with the computer in question. But this is not the case, so logically, something is wrong with the monitor. Check the cable for broken pins.

My samsung sync master 151 -s screen is completely black, The rest of the pc opereates fine. The screen was working fine, then left to idle for a few hours now it appears really dark.


Try turning off the power to the monitor and the computer, check all the cables and power it all back up again. If the monitor is still black, try plugging it into another computer or into a laptop and see if it works there. If it does work, then the problem is the video card in the computer. If it is built into the mother board, then you can disable it in the bios setup and buy a PCI or AGP video card on eBay to plug into *********** board.

The screen is black and there is no charging. No


If the screen is black, itis always recommended taht you do a Monitor self test by unplugging the PC from the Monitor and turning on the Monitor.If the If we see that "Video cable unplugged/Check Video cable", that means the Monitor self test is passing.We need to t/s on the PC...We can open the tower and take out the RAMs and the BIOS battery and do a m/b self test..If we hear a beep sound from the m/b, that means the m/b is good.We can go ahead and reseat the video card(if any) on the m/b and check again..Hope this works.

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.

Turn on computer and Acer Monitor ( AL1913) and nothing but black screen. Know the computer is good as I hooked another monitor to it and worked fine. Frank


fbwhite, Was your screen also BLANK, along with it being BLACK? The flashlight test would have told you! Yes, it could be both, or just BLACK. Read my FIXYA profile and that of other FIXYA tech's (budmrtn and buddymc) and it will become crystal clear to you the problem your monitor has and the options you have open to you. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

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.
