    Need help.
    OS is Vista
    Computer Dell
    I turn the monitor and computer on. The flat panel monitor screen is black. I check the keyboard and mouse and both are working, Cap key works, Number lock works and the mouse laser is on. But the screen is still black. I press a key and the montior tell me to that the monitor is power saving mode then press any key or move the mouse. Nothing works. I have now plug the monitor into another computer and it works. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    Kim

    If you have a second monitor you should plug that in to the Dell that you mentioned. If it does not work you have a bad video card (or some part in the motherboard).

    Is the Dell still under warranty? If so it would be good to call them and start getting a replacement set up.
