Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Monitor fault our monitor has started with an unusual fault. it comes on for 1s and then goes off. To see the screen again, you need to turn the monitor off and then back on again and the images comes back but again only for 1 or 2 seconds. It is a very good picture but obviously you cannot work with a screen that keeps going off. We have tried a borrowed monitor and it works, it is not the computer and it is not the lead... any ideas? Thanks for getting back to us. Cheers

    Replace it.. new monitors are cheap. Especially CRT monitors, you can find used one's all over the place.

You need to send the monitor back to manufacturer and ask for a replacement assuming that your monitor is still under warranty or return period..

When i boot up my pc , the monitor light comes on but flashes and the screen doesnt come on for anything from 1 hour to 4 hours


Hi,
You need to establish if this is a monitor problem or a problem with the graphics card in the PC. Can you try another monitor or have you tried turning the monitor off (for a long time) separately, leaving the PC Base running, then turn monitor back on again? If it takes time to come back on while the PC is running, it is likely to be the monitor at fault.

Screen goes black. the power light is on, but the picture goes out. if i turn the power off, then on again it comes back for about 5 seconds, then goes black again.


Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.

Your backlight might be dead. Try using a flashlight to see if you can see a screen
when it turns black. If you can, its a backlight problem. What model of screen do you have?

CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.

My monitor won't start


There must be a connection problem from monitor to pc, check the pins to see if any are bent in the plug to the pc. If it is a seperate graphics card, check that it is seated correctly in the agp (brown) slot and not come loose. Try booting in safe mode (F8) on boot and select boot Windows in safe mode(this will run pc with normal vga driver and not the graphics driver), and see if it stays on, if it does it is a graphics card driver fault, so re install.
