Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop ?

Hi, I am in the Uk. I have a Dell 5150C. A couple of days ago, the Monitor/Screen started crashing when I used the internet. Essentially, the screen woukd just suddenly go blank. This only seemed to happen at random times - not always - but only when I was using the internet application. The screen would go blank and the monitor went to stadby mode - amber light - from which it could not be brought to life. Sometimes it would start up again of its own accord. Today the problem has deepened. Cur

Hello,

for us to be sure that the fault is not from the Monitor, I would advice that you test the monitor with another PC.

If the Monitor works fine, then the problem is from the VGA card. You will need to loose the PC and check if VGA has loosed contact from the Motherboard.

If the problem still persists after you have checked the VGA, then I am afraid you have to get another VGA card.

But if you cannot access the VGA yourself, maybe you should give it to a computer engineer to check for you.

I wish you all the best.

We?ve always (as in years) left the monitor on (w/ a screen saver) but for whatever reason turned it off for four days when we went away recently. The monitor would then not turn back on.
