Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

The topic i click on doesn't open up on the monitor, it goes across the top of the screen in a long bar. The more links I open, they just layer up on top of each other across the top of the screen in the long bar, like the address bar. I can open them if I click on the little square on the right top that normally is used to enlarge things.

Do this. With one of the windows open instead of using the square box to enlarge the window, use the mouse cursor to drag the corner of the window out to the size you want. Then close the window by hold down the Control key while clinking on the X next to the square box. The next time you open this type of window it should be the size you want.

Monitor flickers with lines across screen


screen is going bad which is why its flickering and has the lines across the screen. Theres a board behind the lcd and when that doesn't process the voltage properly it can cause the screen to flicker. White lines across the screen means the screen is going bad. At this point unless your monitor is under warranty, go ahead and replace it.

Desktop display smaller than screen


1) Right click on your desktop.
2) Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu. This will open the Display Properties window.
3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right)
4) At the bottom left there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left and right until you find the resolution you like.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.

If your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key.

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

Thin vertical colour bars from top to bottom across full width of screen


Welcome to FixYa,

Below are the top reasons why there are "colour bars" running across the screen :
  1. Corrupted video driver
  2. Changes in hardware configuration (display)
  3. Monitor issue (hardware)
In order to determine if it's hardware/software issue, all you need to do is to boot to BIOS and check if the problem replicates. Depending on system, you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping "F2" or "DEL" key repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer until you see a different screen.

If the problem is present while in BIOS, then definitely the monitor needs to be repaired by an authorized repair center. Otherwise, video driver update or Operating system re-install can resolve this problem.

Hope this helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

another thing to verify is the enabling or disabling of the second monitor...if you disable it ...this will default the view also to a single display
for laptops the short cut for this on keyboard is FN+F4..

Black Bars each side of my new monitor wide screen


Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/f007_settings.asp

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.

Monitor


Do you have friend that has a laptop? If yes, you can have your monitor hooked up to external VGA connector. Your problem may or may not disapear. If it does it is likely that the graphic chip is to blame. You may find a inexpensive graphic card (plenty available) that will work.

I think you need to check all capacitor in vertical section. Maybe there is a leaky capacitor, and one the cause of black bar.
