    my advice is to throw the PC in someone else's trash.

    Monitor issue, Dell's recommendation

    * Turn off the monitor
    * Disconnect all cabling from the bottom and side of the monitor (especially the power cord)
    * While disconnected, press and hold the monitor power button in for 10 seconds
    * Reconnect the power cord to the monitor
    * Turn the monitor on. If working, it should say something about No Cable
    * Turn the monitor off
    * Connect ONLY one video cable from the monitor to the computer
    * Power on the monitor, then the computer
