Question about Dell E207WFP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor problem just bought a dell (refurbised) monitor off Dell.com. Had it for about maybe a week, and i've been having some problems. Im running the monitor at optimum resolution and i know for sure my video card can run the monitor. Even all my drivers are updated. Im running Windows Vista. For example, my desktop background is "bliss." Part of the green grass is showing a brown color. The blue sky...parts of the blue show up neon blue, and there is always some sort of static-y movement. Pretty much it shows small tiny specks of really bright colors, and most of the colors showing are neon bright, always "flickering." It's kinda hard to explain....

You didn't specify the card you are running but here is how I would approach the issue.

#1 refurburished Monitors have at a minimum a 90 day warranty, so be prepared to call Dell Tech Support and troubleshoot if my information doesn't help, if the monitor is defective, then they will have to exchange it.

#2 The optimal Resolution is 1680 x 1050 60 hz, you need to ensure that setting (You didn't specify, so I mentioned it)

#3 Sometimes color issues are caused by cabling issues. Try both DVI and VGA connections, see if there is any difference between them (digital or analog, the picture should look the same) If one looks ok, the other doesn't. then it may be a bad cable.

#4 Does the issue occur on more than one system. If it does, then the monitor is bad. If you have individual pixels stuck on (Red, Green or Blue) and you have more than 6, that in itself is justification for replacement.

#5 If all the above doesn't work, contact Dell Tech support for an EXG

Help, can't seem to get the USB ports on my monitor to work again. I have the following dell monitor 1704fpt 17in. running windows XP Pro sp. 2


Since the USB ports on this monitor are just the powered USB Hub, you should try it with another PC if you know for sure that the USB port of the PC taht is feeding this Powered USB Hub on the monitor are OK, also check the cable.
The USB board replacement for thsi will not be woth it. Also check for 5vdc on PIN1 of the USB port.

I got a new Dell 3o inch monitor. After two week's


Instead of trying to fix this problem, if this monitor is less than a month old, it should still be in warranty with Dell. Call Dell and have it replaced as warranted.

I bought a used dell monitor e177fpc when i hook it up to my comp. i get can not support 1280 x 1024 resolution


Try downsizing the resolution, and then try unplugging your adapters. If it's not working still, it's a bug in the drivers, which should be taken to a professional to be looked at.

Dell 17" lcd manufactured 2004 wont turn on.


Well first off if its that old the warranty is up im sure. Second they won't deal with you since you are not the one who bought it. I'm sorry I had a similar problem to that altho I had bought the screen and it did the same thing a week after the warranty was up.

I have never tried that but I would say it won't work that way. I have 2 display cards (3 outputs each, VGA, DVI, TVout) and 3 monitors. When I check the driver software and multiple screen function, it shows only 2 output (VGA and DVI) each. I cannot set TV output as a second screen. Even display properties on windows, it shows only available monitor output. I don't think you can do that.
Thank you,
