If you have a newer computer, Im assuming that you are hooking this monitor up to a computer, if the computer has a dvi connector on the back then hook the monitor to the dvi connector and away you go. In some rare cases you may have to install the drivers that should be included in an (Install CD) that came with the monitor. If not u can obtain them from HP's website follow the links to support, downloads, drivers, input the model of your unit when prompted and then just follow the instructions for downloading your monitors latest display drivers but you probably wont need any of these steps it should be plug n play compatible as long as your computer and monitor are within a few years of each other.

I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.
Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).
What is the way to get the very best picture quality when hooking up my new HP L 1755 Flat Screen Monitor to my E-Machine W3052 which is about 3 years old.First would it be compatible or the best idea to hook up VGA to VGA.DVI to DVI which means buying a new Video card for my Computer so the DVI could be hooked up to my computer, or hook up the DVI to VGA Connector ? Would a DVI Video card be worth the extra costs if I went that route ?This HP L 1755 only has a response time of 25 ms, is that good enough to watch Music Videos or not ? I do not do any gaming.Can you tell me the best detailed step by step way to hook up this monitor to my E-Machine W3052 Computer and which Connector to use ? If I need a DVI Card what would be the Part number or Card I would need to get ? Sorry about all the questions.Any guidance and input would be greatly appreciated since I have a disability and need some help and to be honest I do not have 50.00 for a DVI Video card. Sincerely & God Bless ! Thanks,Diehard16
Most of the time when this happens it is due to a bad monitor, if you have another pc try to hook this monitor up to that one to see if it actually works, these monitors sometimes get damaged during shipment!
