SOURCE: i start up my pc and get no signal to the monitor

You will have to go into BiOS and change the graphics settings from on board graphics to PCI, AGP, or Pci-e depending on what kind of graphics card you have. It will be one of the 3 listed, if your computer is relatively new it's more than likely PCI-e, If it's fairly old it could be one of the other 2.

When switching monitor and tower on the screen shows great distortion


Make sure that the monitor cable is firmly connected to the tower and monitor. If it is and the screen is still distorted then remove the Graphics card from the tower and re-insert it in. THis should resolve the issue

Please rate if this helped you.

Thanks

I moved recently and also got a new tower (windows 7) dell, anyway, when I set up my monitor/computer I couldn't get any sound out to the speakers on the back of the monitor. Is there something else I need...


Should be a green line out wire that plugs into the green port on your sound chip / sound card and into a 2.5mm jack on the rear of the monitor, can get one of these dirt cheap from maplins/ radio shack

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Just bought new tower pc,when connecting to monitor getting error box which says"not optimum mode,reccomended mode 1280 x 1024 60hz ? any thoughts?


hi,

I think the operating system your using has less color drives or on board VGA has less color dives which would work with the monitor .
An upgrade of your operating system would fix it .or buy a VGA card and this will come wit its color drive installation CD ie

Good luck

Sir: I just recently purchased a system on the payroll deduction program thru my work. the problem: the first cd tray on the tower does not come out when the button on the side of the tower is pushed....


Hi,

May be the CD ROM is not correctly fixed in the CPU Cabinet. Please check whether it is showing in the My computer list or not. Give some ****, by slapping or pushing it suddenly, might works. Otherwise as it is a bran new one, contact to the seller immediately.
