Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and keep tapping the F8 key.
When the "Windows Startup" menu (white text over black background) appears,
choose "start in VGA mode".
When Windows starts, reset the display-adapter to a resolution, e.g., 800-by-600-by-60-Hertz, that your monitor DOES support. Then, try different, higher-resolution settings.

I have dell 1905FP monitor and the main menu keeps popping up on & off continually...

lindy3456, A technician will need to look at it!!! Whenever very strange things start happening that YOU know should not be occuring on the screen of your LCD display, you can most likely blame it on the "switch-mode-power-supply" being the culprit!!! Whenever contacting fixya for help, you should ALWAYS include some prior history of the monitor, such as approx total "ON" hours unit has seen during it's life, and the warranty status (in/out) If monitor can be moved to another KNOWN GOOD pc you should try that, to see if it still operates the same or does it suddenly "get well" when connected to different PC. What happens when you conncet a good monitor to your PC? Still work OK? Well, anyway it still seems to me that the SMPS is failing and will eventually not "start-up" one day soon. lmistyrel Contact me if still not sure of how to deal with this DELL 1905FP unit. You can also read some of my other stuff in my fixya profile under 12fixlouie aka louie12fix here on fixya. Also FYI you may want to visit , and and to find out the #1 cause of LCD MONITOR problems and what some owners do to fix them. You should also visit YOUTUBE and view some video clips under "LCD monitor repair" and "LCD monitor disassembly" to understand more fully what is REALLY inside your monitor and makes your screen nice and bright!!! If this was of any interest to you ,please rate this on fixya. Bye for now.

Pc display

This maybe due to lack of Video Card/Monitor drivers or the resolution is set to a small size. You will have to find out which video card you have, and if you have an LCD sometimes they come with drivers (Samsung LCDs have drivers). To find out what video card you have, you can usually go off the model name and number of your computer and get the drivers from your manufacturer's website. If it is a home built computer, you will have to look at the card/motherboard model and serial numbers to figure out the video card they use. Normally XP has a default video driver and it should not do a miniature resolution, but it happens sometimes.

Monitor not coming up

try unplugging the monitor cable from the computer and check if you get a power on self test displayed
if yes then the monitor is fine we have to troubleshoot the computer
and if nothing is displayed the monitor needs to be replaced.
