Absolutely, pretty much any lcd monitor will work...just make sure you get an LCD that has VGA output, not DVI (most LCDs today have both)

I have a 7 yr old Dell Dimension 2400 with a 17" Dell E171FPB flat panel monitor. Frequently, but not always, the monitor will flicker on/off every few seconds then go black for several minutes. It has...


Find somebody with an old CRT-style monitor -- they are essentially WORTHLESS -- because they take up too much space, and not as nice a picture as an LCD, and offer to take it off their hands. Use it as a "test" monitor.

Or, it could be the video-card in your SEVEN-year-old computer.
Try replacing the video-card -- some friend probably has a "dusty" and "spare" video-card that can be temporarily used.

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

LCD back light is off or very dim


I changed monitors and it works??? What worked. Did the brightness appear? Is the monitor now functioning properly?

If not, monitors can have increase brightness by using the menu settings. The settings can be accessed by the buttons that are usually below the monitor screen on the front under panel. Adjust the brightness from there.

If that fails then change the monitor. That you are suggesting that the backlight is out, I am assuming that you have a flatpanel monitor and not a CRT. Either can be configured the same way using the menu buttons; however, the back light issues are different in the two types of monitor.

Good Luck

Hi,how do I know wheather I need DVI or VGA cables to connect CPU to a Monitor.I sold monitor when I got laptop now I want set up the Dell Dimension 3100 as aback up,so I'm looking at wide sreen monitors...


Most of the Widescreen monitors come with DVI as well as VGA connector. A VGA connector and DVI connectors are different in many aspects. First of all the DVI connector would be white in color and VGA would be blue.
VGA connector has 15 pins and DVI has 24 +1 pin

Researching before buying


You can absolutely handle any screen you want. Just make sure if its an older computer to find a VGA connection on the new monitor and that will work out perfectly fine :).

Monitor only flickers - no display whatsoever


You can purchase and aftermarket monitor. I bought a nice LCD from Wal-Mart for about 99 dollars. Also, tigerdirect.com sells refurbished and new monitors relatively cheap.
