Within the last 1-2 weeks my monitor has had a few instances of going on the "fritz" with a screen that seems to "flicker" and freeze with a "flickering image". This can happen when both using the internet on not.
I have a DELL XPS Dimension 8300 with a long screen monitor (about 18 inches x11 inches). The monitor is a DELL IN2030M (Analog). I am using WIN 10 OS.
I have run the DELL PCSupport Diagnostics and I got an error message:
"Monitor DELL IN2030M (analog) with error code WMN01-LPE ---failed.
I tried contacting DELL (by-phone0 but they have "no idea" what this error code means. [my warranty is expired for this computer as bought in 2011]. I did just recently buy a DELL Laptop which I would like to be able to use the bigger monitor with, if possible.
I would like to find out exactly what is wrong.
Do I need a new driver?
Is video card going "bad"?
Do i need a new monitor?
If any event logs, diagnostics etc. can be run to better determine problem I would appreciate this assistance.
