Having problems with your Dell E228WFP LCD Monitor ?

Dell E228WFP Monitor failure

\015 This monitor is less then a year old but despite trying everything typical to make it display on other computers both laptops and tower units, this monitor will display the Dell logo, then two seconds of our main XP-Pro screen then goes dark. \015\012\015\012It worked fine for the majority of the year, just one day, went dark. The monitor and computer systems here are on APC lines for stable voltage. If you push the power button to off, then push it to on, you get the green light and another two seconds of our main screen. Just to be safe that we were getting a correct signal, we took another E22 and followed the same process without issue. It work with three other E22's, but this one fails every test. Dell won't do anything. \015\012\015\012I have a long history with NEC and Viewsonic, that never gave us a problem. Dell does. Does any one have and bright ideas? I'm thinking You Tube and take my rifle and blow this monitor away in slow montion. Dell's PR team would panic over that. \015\012\015\012I'm far from dumb about computers. Anyone remember the GEM system, Rainbow, DOS 1.0 or the 8088 chip? Yep, I feel old sometimes. I still know how to set the points and dwell on an old V8 engine. I look under the engine hood today and it's just toss the part and start over. I'm leaning this way for this E22. I'm unsure if this is the right place for answer or perspective of what to do.\015

Answers :

To me, that's an XP driver issue. If the screen turns on at all, then goes dark during XP boot, that's nearly a ringer for drivers.

Out of range on the Hz? Tried booting in safe mode to see if it loads with standard win drivers? That might work. Reset the monitor to default/standard settings and try safe mode is what I would do. Ramp up the resolution/refresh rate from there.
