Some letters on monitor are fading out

I have a larger Dell monitor and an Nvidia5200 video card. Some letters show up as not filled in completely.

    This VA1912wb was working fine until we installed a VisionTex Radeon x1550 graphics card. Now the letters and icons seem to "ghosting". Any advice?

    I have the same problem with the newly bought V7 22 inch monitor. Some black letter has grey pixels if look closely.

Some letters on monitor are fading out if there is no problem with card then it is due to monitor high voltage section failure. 1 there should be proper output from power supply. 2 focus control on flyback to be set. 3 crt base loose 4 or focus wire going to crt base not properly connected due to some foreign material deposited on it. 5 at last if monitor is old there is a possibility of crt getting weak.

Missing letters on computer screen

If there was any warranty on the refurbished desktop and monitor and if such still applies, return it for a replacement.

Either the video card in the desktop computer is going bad or the monitor has issues. If the monitor has issues, they might involve 1) a focus wire to the CRT; 2) a power supply going bad 3) a problem with the focus control.

What can you do? You start trying to rule out possibilities. You try swapping out the monitor with another monitor. If that fixes the problem, then the desktop computer's video card is unlikely the problem. If there is a power supply going bad yielding inadequate voltage, then possibly neither the desktop video card nor the monitor is at fault. If you take your monitor and plug it into another computer that has the ports similar to your desktop computer and the monitor has no fadeouts, then the problem is either the desktop computer video supply or the power supply. So, there actually is a non-technical way to determine if the monitor is at fault. But that would leave you wondering if the computer was at fault, video card or power supply. Some video cards were integrated, i. e. could not be removed. You could download and run Speccy to find out some information about the video and lookup the specs on the internet although they are unlikely to be at the manufacture's site at this point. Whether you have someone at a computer club who would check these remaining components out or swap them out is a question I can't answer. You are pretty close to the point of needing to just get an inexpensive tablet or something from a classifieds paper such as Trading Post or Gumtree (Australian). But if it is running XP, don't pay over $100 for it. (Inside joke: the military may still use XP but that is defensible.) I hope this helps.

Color is fading bright n dark

Could be your monitor is going bad, plug a montior into your computer, if the new monitor does not fade, then you found that the old monitor needs replacment, however if both monitors are fading, try to
Restart ur computer and get into the BIOS. check if the line is there also. then plug in an external monitor into the VA connector of the system and check if the line appears there also.

If in both the cases, there is a line, then the problem is with the video card. if the line is only seen on the notebook display, then the problem is with the built-in screen, which means you will need to get the screen replaced, or get a new monitor. Check ur warranties.

If the video card is found to be the problem, then depepnding on the video card (on-board or extendible) it will need to be replaced. Again, check ur warranties for any free service.

It won't start it is black

Dell systems have built in no post diagnostics, you can check them here:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4282412-find_no_post_diagnostic_information_dell

if the system is completing post, but not showing any display, then you have either a Video Card issue or a monitor issue. Things to check:
  1. Ensure the monitor has the proper input selected for the cable that is connected (VGA, DVI, DisplayPort etc)
  2. Reseat cable connections
  3. If system was recently moved, make sure cable connected to correct Video Card Connection (Some systems have 2, and if an expansion card is inserted, generally on-board video is disabled.)
  4. If still no video and system has both expansion and onboard video, remove the expansion card, try the on-board.
  5. If still no go, try a different monitor
  6. if all the above fails, replace video card

When my dell e510 boots and gets past the first bios screen and shows it booting up the system components it is completely unreadable all letters are in the wrong place or distorted and the entire screen...

Sounds like it could be a graphics card problem problem is it's integrated so part of your motherboard unless you have installed a graphics card.If you have a graphics card in it take it out plug your monitor into the other graphics port and enable on board graphics in your BIOS/ integrated peripherals by pressing F12 key,..if it now works you know your graphics card is broke.If you havn't a graphics cardin it your motherboard needs replacing.

Flatron w2043s 20" there is distortion on all letters and numbers etc, its as if its ran out of ink ,spoils the picture big time

The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.

It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Lack of contrast and faded text

The Ultrasharp monitors need a good video card to drive the quality that you have come to know. The emachines lack the memory and quality to drive the monitor. If you don't have a 16meg video card with DVI, you will only get the basic analog qualities of the monitor. I have the same problem at work some of our older machines that have onboard graphics cards that are mediocre. However, when you plug the Ultrasharps into an NVIDIA 32meg card, the resolution is beautiful. I suspect that this is your problem.

Monitor

Try connecting another monitor first, but seem to be related to your video card.
Check the video card on your computer.

Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor(3 yrs old) issue

That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).
