    Solved the problem the primary problem was the onboard video but by extension there seems to be a problem with the mainboards of the GX270 (bad capacitor i believe) an AGP card should do the trick for now. thanx for your help

It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.

I HAVE MONITOR DELL E151FPP, THE PROBLEM IN THE RESOLUTION WHICH IS 640 X 80 ONLY

Make sure you've downloaded the driver for your video card. As long as that is installed and it supports higher resolutions, you should be able to go to your system settings and change it (this process will depend on your operating system).

My monitor flashes on at startup but then goes blank

I will assume you have already try this monitor with other PC and new VGA cable with the same result.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, falied inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Dell and other monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

Power Board Dell E151FPp

Did you check the fuse PF751, it should be less than 1 Ohm?
Also look for cold solder joints.

No display but power led is on

sounds like a video card problem in your pc. If you are using the onboard video output on your motherboard, you probably need a new one. If you are using a card that has been added to the board in a slot, try your onboard output (looks the same)

Cannot get me monitor out of sleep mode, please help?

Hi

Pls check the power management properties in device manager to check if the option to wake the computer from sleep for the keyboard and mouse are enabled.
You may also try to change the power plan or create a new power plan and check if you are able to wake the computer from sleep.
If this problem started a few days back, then you may try to do a system restore.

Monitor goes black

it depends whether it displays anything. There's only one fuse which determines if the power is on or nor. If your monitor turns on, I would not look for the bad fuse.
Not finding what you are looking for?

Old monitor not recognized by new computer, stuck in power save. I just bought a low-end machine from Ibuypower for my parents, to be used primarily for the internet, word processing, and work purposes,nothing complicated. But their old Dell UltraSharp 17'' monitor will not display anything. It's in its powersave mode while the computer boots up, but does not seem to begetting any kind of signal otherwise. I've used both the VGA and DVI hookups, neither have produced any change or response. The monitor was working just fine yesterday with the old Dell PC; there is no other monitor or PC available for me to test the monitor or new Ibuypower system with; I am writing this from a crappy ancient laptop I found in storage, circa 1998ish. I have also switched the monitor between digital and analog mode several times, but it remains in powersave. Wiggling the mouse or hitting any key like it says to bring it out of power save has not worked, although I know the keyboard and mouse are working because even blindly I have been able to click on and open things on the desktop of the new computer. I have respectable computer knowledge so you don't need to dumb-down responses for me too much - yes, the power's on and it's plugged in and all the usual stuff. I'm just perplexed because I've never had a problem with a monitor before, certainly not as silly as ''plugged it in and it doesn't work''.
