Is this monitor dead?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I go to turn on my mom's monitor and it is showing a bunch of non-static lines. They are constantly getting worse. I took a short video of it so you can see what it looks like. 10 minutes later 3/4 of the screen is a static black with bleeding back light while the remaining portion is still flickering lines. It has something to do with the monitor because I unplugged it and it shows a auto test screen when unplugged but, it was still flickering. It is a dell E171FPb.

Click the picture below for the video.

Try a different cable, and try reinstalling drivers.

Even when I unplug everything except the power cable it still is distorted. (it shows a RGB table for an auto test when VGA is unplugged)

Goodness gracious what did you do.

But on a serious note, it seems like it is about to die.
