Having problems with your Dell Computer Monitors ?

172FPb suddenly went dark. shows display very briefly at startup and when powered on and off. Do you think a monitor or video card issue?


Answers :

This sounds typical of a failure in the back lighting system. You may be able to see a ghost image on the screen.

\015\012Typical repair cost is $80-$150 depending on what actually need to be repaired and labour rates. Check for warranty first, if its covered then get it fixed but you also want to check out replacement cost as the repair cost is close to what a new monitor will cost. So if you have to pay for this then consider getting a new monitor.
Try a known working monitor on your computer. If the video stays on then you know the original dell monitor is bad.

If you try the know working monitor and the video doesn't stay on then its a video card issue at that point.
