If there's a graphics card in the PC, it's possible the connection in its slot isn't quite right. Carefully pulling it out and plugging it back in may help. You can tell if you've got a graphics card as if you do your monitors would be plugged into a big card plugged into a long slot in the motherboard (though sometimes Dell hides things away under covers).  If you don't have one, your monitor cables will be plugged directly into the motherboard. When handling internal cards, use an anti-static wrist strap and ensure the power is turned off on the PC.

Try changing the VGA or HDMI cable which is connected to your desktop(depends on the cable you are using)  

Or you can try plugging in a known working monitor to determine if it is an issue with the monitor or the desktop VGA port.

the strange this is that i'm able to see the DELL log and i can go in cmos F2 and F12 for diagnostics, then after that I get the windows 10 window and the circle spinning and then it goes to that auto adjustment.

Go it to safe mode and remove the graphics card from device manager.

Either the screen refresh rate is to high (hertz) or your graphics card is outputting a strange resolution that your screen doesn't support.

Make sure you are using the latest drivers for both graphics and screen.
