Hi All,

I have a problem with my Dell 15 inch flat panel ultra sharp monitor,
Dell dimension
2350, 2 yrs old.

Frozen in the upper left corner of the monitor is a pale,faded out
white circle
with circles within circles, resembling
an onion sliced across horizontally.
This circle shows up twice: on the welcome screen and again on the
windows logging off screen. (circle is
2 3/4 in. across and down)

A Dell tech had me do a selfhelp test
with her on my pc.This test did not show any thing. Now the tech wants a
test done on the tower to check the componemts,
the video card and more. Testing with the tower is not my cup of tea. I
don't know
anything about the workings of it.
Has anyone here had trouble with their
monitor?

Any advise or opinions will be greatly
appreciated.

Jay

It only shows up on those two screens because it's part of the graphic that
makes up those two screens. :))

Why can't I stop myself smiling (but not in a nasty EBKAS kinda way)

If you change your color depth to 32bit in display properties the "onion"
will go away.

That may be dependent on monitor size and/or display resolution
set, Alien.

With a 19" P992 set at 1280 x 1024 and 32-bit color, the "onion"
shows up on my XP logon screen just as in HBB's example.

[Of course, I never noticed it before the OP, jay, brought it up
and HBB posted the screen shot. 61-y.o. eyes I guess, or I never
looked at that corner, concentrating on logging in, instead.]
