Question about Sceptre Dragon Eye D50X (White) 15 in.CRT Conventional Monitor
I have just purchased this monitor from a thrift shop..it looked new...the bags were not opened...the power cord still in the original bag..etc.... I plugged it into my computer and it came on for the windows loading screen then went black..the lights seem to be going through some kinda scan but will not stop and the monitor will not come on(light is on but no picture)Is there anything I need to do besides just plugging it in, like drivers etc...I am using windows XP for my OS and the monitor has a date of 2001 on the sticker. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kenny
If a monitor shows a normal screen at startup but goes bad after the Windows logo disappears, your Windows video setting is probably not compatible with the monitor. You can start Windows in safe mode to select a compatible resolution for your monitor.
