Dell 1905FP powers up but screen goes black after a few minutes


The monitors inverter seems to be failing. If you look up close, can you see a very faint image of the desktop?

You should think about getting a new monitor it might be cheaper than repairing.

My computer starts flickering at boot, then the screen goes black!


It is probably the monitor. Hook the monitor to another computer and test.

Whenever the monitor is turned on, it displays for about 3 seconds and then goes black. what to do? It is only about 3 yrs old


One of three things is the most likely culprit.

1. Onboard video card is either disabled or bad.
2. Cable is bad
3. Monitor is bad.

You can check the last 2 relativly easily by hooking the monitor and cable up to another computer to see if they function. if they don't then first try swapping out the cable (i say this first because its cheaper) then swap out the monitor.

To see if the video card is bad try hooking up a different monitor to the system. If the new monitor is not displaying anything then you most likely will need to put a new video card in the machine.

New monitor flickers when hooked to computer


Hi!

There's a few usual culprits for this problem.

  1. Check the cable. Swap to a different cable if possible to rule that out.
  2. Check the refresh rate of your monitor. Most monitors have options for this via a Menu button on the screen itself.
    If you find it, change it to 60 hertz
  3. Check the refresh rate of the monitor from your operating system/video card's software.
    In Windows, right click on the desktop, click Properties, then the Settings tab, then Advanced. Change it to 60 hertz if it's anything different.
It could be faulty but hopefully not.
