Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor Powers on Blanks screen with Vertical lines

\015 Princeton VL2017 model L203I plugged it into my computer and it powers on and stays on back lights\015\012work great, but you see vertical lines all over and more appear when\015\012you press the menu button but you cannot see the menu. also when you plug it in as a second monitor\015\012and tell it to identify the pixels get brighter with what would be the\015\012number 2. I was wondering could it possibly be that the video input\015\012board is bad and not sending the proper signal to the LCD monitor,\015\012possibly the processor chip? both DVI and VGA cable types give signal to the\015\012monitor. The Inverter board only seems to go to the back lights so I\015\012don't think that could be the problem. I also pulled all the boards up and\015\012looked at both sides, no bad solder joints, no bloated caps, nothing\015\012burned or discolored.\015

Answers :

You can't always see where the solder is off .
\015\012Sounds like you need to purchase a new video card.
\015\012But before you do ,.. go into your control panel and reset everything in the display settings to original.
\015\012Advanced- DPI should be at 96 as default then check (drivers) roll back to original drivers (if you are running an ancient version of windows)
\015\012restart your cpu
\015\012If this doesnt werk ,... you have a bad monitor . ( hope you kept the reciept).

My Dell Inspiron 1521 stopped working and the screen went blank. I tried to reboot, but no luck. I removed the battery and changed to a 9-cell, but that also does not do anything.

The power light is on and the battert light blinks about every 7 seconds. I tried to press the on button and hold the Fn key, but all that does
