If the TV display cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly, the floating "Dell - SelfTest Feature Check" dialog box appears on the screen (against a black background).
While in self-test mode, the power light remains blue and the self-test pattern scrolls through
the screen continually. This box also appears during normal system operation if the video
cable becomes disconnected or damaged.

Turn off your TV display and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and
the TV display. If your TV display screen remains blank, the problem may be with your
computer or graphic card.
