Sound like your screen is going out, it could also be the inverter. Could also be the video card, but not likely. Before you go to changing out any hardware, go into the device manager and un-install the monitor drivers. The hardware wizard should pickup the monitor automatically and reinstall the drivers. Then look for any driver updates at the Dell support site. If that does nothing then it's either the screen or inverter.

How do I adjust the image width on this wide screen? Everything appears distorted and wider than it is. I would like a narrower image.


This is one of the problems with the wide aspect screen. Most images seem to fit best on the older monitors.
You can go into the video properties and choose one the the display types that best display your image. Unfortunately, by taking a normal (to us) image that looked just fine on an older monitor and displaying it on a newer, wide-aspect monitor, you're gonna distort the image or crop it in a way you didn't expect.
My advice is to experiment with the display until you find something you can live with.

Screen just goes all white then red,green,and blue color flashing


Hello,

Is it that the screen just went blank or white without any display? need more clarification, but If it is, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

LCD monitor not working right


This is 2004 model, it may not be worth putting money and time into repairing a 15" monitor. But you can at least look inside for any damaged, burnt components, lose connections, etc. otherwise to do a component level repair at the shop will not be worth it.

Try resetting the monitor to default settings by getting your manual out. It will guide you through the process. If that does'nt work then check for any updated drivers.

Monitor goes black.


This is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went black or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

My monitor constantly displays "NORMAL" across the middle of my screen. I am unable to use any of the buttons on the monitor other than the power button. I've checked all the connections which are fine....


I would actually suggest to consider the drivers of your graphics adapter.

Try upgrading the drivers of your video card. If you already have the most recent ones, I would UNINSTALL the display adapter in Windows Device Manager...and reboot the system once more.

If necessary, I would roll back the driver to a previous version.

I suspect that perhaps there may be an issue with the refresh rate or something along those lines coming from your card to your monitor. Perhaps some kind of ratio issue?

One thing I would do is definitely check the manual to your monitor and find out what "Normal" really means. THIS is what I found:

"Lightview hot key
This feature lets you easily select the best desired
image condition optimized to the environment
(ambient illumination, image types etc).
• DAY : Bright ambient illumination
• NIGHT : Dark ambient illumination
• TEXT : For text images (Word processing etc.)
• MOVIE : For animation images in videos or movies
• PHOTO : For pictures or drawings
• NORMAL : This is under normal operating conditions"

So looking at that, I am led to believe that your monitor is switching viewing modes somehow. I would inspect the button that would potentially change these modes and make sure that it's not jammed somehow. It could very well be the problem causing your other buttons to be inoperable. (If it's somehow being held down by a foreign object for instance.)

Click HERE for the manual. (Don't enter your email addy. Just click the download button.)

That's about all I can really see as a problem without seeing it personally.

Monitor goes blurry, colours/pixels start shaking across screen


Do you have your screen saver enabled, i so turn it off and se if it still does it. Secondly boot your pc in safe mode(pressing F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode. See if the monitor still does it, if so a monitor fault or loose/faulty vga lead. If it is ok then your graphics driver may be corrupt and need re installing.
