Probably not... to be honest. By the time you buy a replacement panel for it, you could probably buy a brand new screen for a few bucks more!

Unless the screen is absolutely HUGE, i'd let him bin it... or at very best, sell it on an auction website as good for parts. You might get $40 for it?

Your graphics card may not be able to display this screen resolution.
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and move the slider on the Screen resolution - to get as close to 1800 X 900 then click apply.

LCD back light is off or very dim


I changed monitors and it works??? What worked. Did the brightness appear? Is the monitor now functioning properly?

If not, monitors can have increase brightness by using the menu settings. The settings can be accessed by the buttons that are usually below the monitor screen on the front under panel. Adjust the brightness from there.

If that fails then change the monitor. That you are suggesting that the backlight is out, I am assuming that you have a flatpanel monitor and not a CRT. Either can be configured the same way using the menu buttons; however, the back light issues are different in the two types of monitor.

Good Luck

Dell dimension 2400 diskette drive 0 seek failure


Check your BIOS setting to see if it detects the hard drive (Primary disk 0). If it can't detect the hard drive then the hard drive maybe faulty. Open the case unpluge the IDE cable from the hard drive and reconnect it again, also unplug the IDE cable at the motherboard and reconnect it again including the power connector on the hard drive.
There maybe an option to test the hard drive in the BIOS, if so use it to test the hard drive.
If the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace it and install Windows, the various device drivers and your programs to get a functioning computer again.
You might consider buying a new computer (it will be faster & better than the old Dell) and you have your new monitor to go with it.

You can purchase and aftermarket monitor. I bought a nice LCD from Wal-Mart for about 99 dollars. Also, tigerdirect.com sells refurbished and new monitors relatively cheap.

An error message of "for the best resolution change your settings to 1440 x 900. However these are my setting and the error populates appx every 5 minutes in the middle of the screen and does not go...


Usually this pertains to the maxium resolution of your monitor-make sure the resolution on your graphic card is set to the same 1440 x 900, or else the monitor will ask you to change it to back to the 1440 x 900.This also includes games, make sure you set your game resolution in 1440 x 900, if its not possible then check the manual of your monitor and then see if there is a auto resolution option.
