Dell monitors

Dell sells LCD-based computer monitors. Dell bundles monitors with its desktop computers as package deals, as well as selling them separately through their online store. They also sell monitors from other manufactures, such as NEC and Viewsonic.

LCD monitors

Many of the Dell monitors have been reviewed by hardware reviewers in their own right. When the 2405FPW 24" screen was launched it received a lot of press attention for being much cheaper than comparable models from Apple and Samsung.

Certain Dell monitors have a hidden service menu, which may only be accessed with a special procedure. Please be warned that changing the service menu items is generally not a good idea.

  1. Press and hold the "AUTO" & "+" button (some models use "ENTER" and "+" button), then power on the monitor.
  2. Once the monitor is on, press the "MENU" button to open the osd menu.
  3. Now, in the osd menu, go to "factory reset" and you can see at the bottom of menu have an extra menu item named "FACTORY".
  4. Go to that "FACTORY" selection and press the "ENTER" button.
  5. You are now in the Dell service menu.

The general procedure for monitors manufactured after 2005 is as follows [e.g. 2007FPW]:

  1. Press and hold the "AUTO" & "+" button (some models use "ENTER" and "+" button), then power on the monitor. Keep holding all three buttons until the monitor is fully on.
  2. After the monitor is on, release the buttons and press the "-" button.
  3. The factory service menu should appear.

The Dell 1901FP service menu can be accessed as follows:

  1. Turn the monitor off.
  2. Press and hold the MENU and "-" buttons (the two left most buttons), then power the monitor on.
  3. Press [MENU] and two new yellow tags should appear on the title bar of the main menu. If not try again.
  4. Enter Factory Reset option at bottom
  5. Select the Factory option at the following menu.
  6. To exit this mode power off then on again.

Dell SE198WFP service menu can be accessed as follows:

  1. Turn the monitor off.
  2. Press and hold the [MENU] and [+] buttons (second and fourth), then power the monitor on.
