Question about Dell E151FPp 15" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

False color with Dell E151FPp and Mac Mini

I'd been using a Dell E151FPp with an aging Compaq PC - everything was fine on the display front.  We upgraded the computer to a Mac Mini, and used the DVI-sVGA converter supplied with the Mac Mini.
Now, the Macintosh color on the Dell screen is screwed up. Red appears black, yellow and green are difficult to distinguish, and everything (esp white) has a blueish tint.  I've fiddled with the Dell monitor settings endlessly, and also used the Mac Displays Calibration routine, all to very little effect.
Any ideas?

The Apple 22" Cinema display M8149 (ADC) is one that is not compatible.
It might be better to find another brand display to work with your 2009 Mac Mini. The Apple model A1081 is DVI, but for the age (its 8 years old, the lamps are likely dimmer than new...) I would look for a resolution-compatible DVI input display (Dell Ultrasharp, etc..).

No display but power led is on

sounds like a video card problem in your pc. If you are using the onboard video output on your motherboard, you probably need a new one. If you are using a card that has been added to the board in a slot, try your onboard output (looks the same)

Monitor problem

It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.
