Question about Dell E152FPc 15" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor
First let's try to find out the culprit, remove/unplug the monitor and connect it to another computer using the same cable, if it's working fine, then check the System. (If not skip the next para).
Disconnect all the cables connected to the system, like mouse, keyboard, power cord, etc... etc.. and leave it off for few minutes, again reconnect whatever is required (not all, if you have additional usb cables, you can connect them later, sometimes usb interferes with the display), once you are ready, power on the machine and enter the "Bios Setup" and restore it to Default, i.e. "Optimized Default" or something similar which is in the "Exit" menu. After it's done, save the settings (Press F10) and let it restart. While it boots up, keep tapping F8 and when you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu, select "Safe Mode" and boot into "Safe Mode", if everything is ok with the Safe Mode, restart the system and let it boot normally. If the problem's no longer persists, then you are done, but if the problem persists, make sure the system is still running normally. Try tapping the Numlock/Capslock to assure it's still running. If it seems hanged, you better try with another monitor or replacing a ram or uninstalling recently installed hardwares, etc...etc..
If the monitor doesn't work on another computer, no doubt, it's with the monitor or with the cable, try with another cable and check again.
Sometimes motherboard itself or the Bios chip could be the problem, but let's deal with them later. For now try to find out the cause and the troubleshooting will be easier for you and for me.
Thanks for using FixYa.
