    It is a HP Pallillion Media Center m8530f PC. Yes the monitor was part of the purchase. Yes the power light comes on, when you turn it on it is blue at the start then starts to flash in orange/yellow. No nothing happens when you push the menu button. But when you turn the monitor on the LG logo does come up and then it says "Power saving mode"

    What kind of computer?

    Was the monitor part of the purchase?

    Does the power light on the monitor come on? Does it change colors? (like green or orange).

    If you push just the menu button on the monitor, does it show anything on the screen?

This sounds like more of a problem with the computer then with the monitor. The monitor is just responding the the signal.
What I have seen in the past, when I see the power save mode/blue/orage, is that the computer is having motherboard problems.
Since this is a brand new system, I suggest you call the place you got it from, and find out how soon they are going to be either giving you a new one, or how soon a tech is going to be on-site to fix the one you have.

If you got it through a retail store, call them first, but odds are, they will tell you to contact HP. But something worth checking. Depending on the store is how they handle return/replacement policy.
If you do have to call HP, have the computer information handy, they base everything on that (with Dell's, it the Service Tag, I don't know what HP uses).

1/2 of 1% of new computers are DOA, so this is not something completely unusual.
That's why they have warranties.
And with that said, the warranty will cover everything, except your time on the phone with them.

Would like to connect speakers. Does this computer have a sound card in it? Moniter is hp w1701. Does it have speakers in the moniter?


well depends on the Computer brand! most computers come with a sound card... sometimes there is onboard and pci :) either way look behind your computer where all the plug-ins are and there should be 3 small holes that will allow the plug of speakers... :) hope this helps!

I have just installed a Acer LCD #X223W moniter. What do I need to do to get my speakers to work with it? Is there a missing port or do I need a new cable. This moniter has a HDVi cable but the Computer...


Did you give the correct model of the Acer monitor you have?

When I looked up the X223W monitor, I see a monitor with a DVI-D port and VGA port. Only the VGA cable is usually included in the box. If your computer has a VGA port (most older computers that came with only the video chip on the motherboard), you can either use the VGA cable or get a VGA to DVI adapter and use a DVI-D cable (purchase separately). Alternatively, check the specs of your power supply and available card slots and buy a new video card with a DVI port. If you have only a DVI port on your computer, get the DVI cable (the VGA to DVI adapter would work but isn't a good option).

If I read the specs correctly, this monitor doesn't have speakers. You should plug your speakers into the audio out of your computer. If you use the on-board audio you will see at least two jacks (microphone/line in) and audio out (speakers). Many audio cards and some motherboards come with additional jacks for surround sound so check your system information. Audio extension cables are a cheap solution if the speaker cables are too short to reach to your computer.

I hope this helps.

1 speaker only working. why


I like your thinking...that's just too simple. Nope you must plug the left speaker into the right speaker and pug the power supply into the right speaker. Then plug the right speaker into the GREEN receiver.
That works if you have two speaker..(and/or a sub woofer) it you have four...five...then we use all of those pink, black, white, yellow receivers. But that is a lesson for another day...good luck my friend.

Speakers killed my moniter


Well as you have already tried disconnecting the peripherals from your computer, and tried restarting the computer too which did not help you, it sounds to be an hardware issue with the monitor. However if incase you have not tried this, you can disconnect the monitor completely from the tower, power on the monitor, if it powers on and you get a message as no signal, your monitor is working good. If not replace the monitor. If the message appears on the monitor screen, disconnect everything from the tower, push and hold the power button on the tower for a minute. Connect just the monitor and check for any display. If you do get display, thats good, connect one device at a time and check to see if the display appears.

If theres no display with just the monitor connected, the issue would be with the graphics card. You may need to replace it or get the system repaired.
