I am piecing together a desktop system for my daughter for christmas. I have an LG CPU and am trying to connect an LG CRT monitor which i got from somewhere else. On the motherboard, there is a monitor connection but it is male and so is the connector on the monitor. There has been a graphics card added to the computer and presumably this has been set up with a monitor before but although the CRT fits the connection perfectly, it is not being recognised on bootup and stays black.
I'm presuming that the monitor is alot older than the CPU. is it possible to get a male/male adaptor cable so i can plug it directly into the CPU's motherboard and if i do this, will it be sufficient to make it work?
apprently there is windows XP on the CPU. i can't see that though obviously LOL!!!

Re: Can't get LG CRT monitor to work at all.
If the computer has DVI male, you simply need a VGA to DVI adapter.
However, the plugs on the computer should all be male, and cables coming from the monitor female. It seems you may be trying the wrong port. http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html

problem with the monitor Display cable. it is damaged.
Normally monitor will receive 3 colors red, green, Blue signals from CPU. If one cable i.e Red wire connection is missing in display cable which is connected to monitor, Red color image on monitor wil be replaced with other fade color.
So, need the replace the display cable or display connector!
probably itz either minor case of improper ground/cpu fan/faulty power cable.. or major case of faulty or defective main board/ram/daughter or addon card(s)..
..plz do check the following as in order:.. the Hardware part:.. 1)a)in power
on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see
if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is
ok..else replace the monitor and see..[not applicable in case of
laptop].. b) in case of laptop try to get output from external
display unit/monitor using vga port..if there's proper display in
there..the problem is probably with either the 'lcd'or 'ccfl' or
2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..
3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..
if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide
formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby
5) a) see if ur hdd is noisy or emitting any 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr').. b) or if the system is not supporting either the newly installed device or itz software/driver /firmware if so, u need either a fresh os installation or ur hdd is likely to b replaced..
neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause
jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase
7)open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the
socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics
chip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink
*** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..
board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for
defective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's
south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock
generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..
9) [in case of desktop] the
smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v
(black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg&
grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..the 'oscillator and
error amplifier ic',or pwm switching regulator circuit..look
for defective protector-transformer/resistance (esp 4.7k)/mosfet.. check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..
if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....
it simply means that your cpu is not giving back signal to your monitor to process, in fact, it is a cpu problem that is why there is nothing to display in your monitor.
Your cpu froze because of that usb thing. the only way to unfreeze it is to manually reset your hardware in this order.
1. RAM modules. If you can unplug your RAM (memory modules) connected in your motherboard, please do it. Just unplug the modules and then plug it back in. if you have 2 rams, then interchange them when plugging it back. this will force your mobo to refresh its resources.
2. CPU. if you can pull out your cpu chip, then do it. this will refresh your cpu setting in your mobo. (mobo = motherboard)
if another monitor is available check it on your system and check yours on another. this is the simplest way to eliminate possibilities. could be your video card all together, just not kicking out a signal
