Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Monitor Issue When I boot up the computer, the monitor will go through all of the start up procedures, but then there are flickers up and down the screen. Also, the screen will randomly turn off and on every few seconds. It gets worse when the mouse is moved. I tried another monitor and had the same results. Any ideas? Thanks!

A few months ago my LG Flatron L1900R monitor started flickering when I boot up my computer. It has become worse, to the point where it now flickers constantly.


From the information desribed, this means that your CRT monitor is going dead. Unfortuntly, there is no way to stop the flickering unless the monitor was replaced. I hope this has helped

Monitor won't start when I boot up - without a lot of fiddling!


First try to do monitor self test.Disconnected the blue cable VGA or white colour connector from monitor to the computer. Turn on the monitor and check if you are able to see colours or line on the monitor.Indicating self test monitor is working fine. If you are using Video card on computer connect monitor directly to onboard video and check. Good Luck.

Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem


The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less

Is this a Software/Config/Hardware Problem ?


hmmm..sounds like a sleep or screen saver conflict...try booting up on Safe mode(F8) on turn on, and then see how that works. Set your screen saver for Never, and see what happens.

You may be hitting a thermal issue with your video circuitry.

Monitor is failing to start although power is on


Sounds like you've got some blown capacitors on the internal hardware of the monitor.

Unless you are a seasoned computer hardware expert or electrical engineer I'd recommend you replace the monitor.

The capacitors that are blown are likely controlling the power aspect of your monitor, and aren't totally defective yet.

Most computer shops would not be able to repair your issue, due to lack of skills related to monitor repair. So you're going to find replacement the easiest / cheapest solution.

Of course you can try to ride out the problem as long as you can. But it will get worse over time.

First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.

Flashing on and off


I would suggest trying another monitor to rule out your PC or monitor card. I would also check the video settings on the PC. Then assuming your cable/connector and video card are okay, it sounds like a lamp or lamp driver (a.k.a. ballast or inverter) issue. In other words, an internal issue that probably needs component-level troubleshooting.
