I want to know if my monitor is Vista compatable

I was wondering if the brilliant (but old) HP Pavilion MX70 monitor is Vista compatable - I need to upgrade, and don't know if I'll need a new monitor?

    Thanks for answering. Sadly I bought a new computer, and monitor only a fortnight ago, as I found info on two other sites that said the monitor would flicker so you could not see the image!

    As my monitor no longer worked when I went from '98 to XP, I believed this. (something to do with frame rate, I belive) I should have waited, I'd have saved money and not been stuck with a horrible flat screen.

    Again, many thanks.

Yes, the monitor is Vista compatible. A monitor is just a display device, simply showing you what's coming from the computer's video card. That video circuitry is what would need to be compatible with Vista.

If you are upgrading an older computer by installing Vista, you might need to be concerned about video hardware compatibility. If you are upgrading by simply replacing the computer with a new one, it will already be Vista ready. In either case, the monitor will be fine.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you've found it what you need, and thanks for asking here!

I have an hp pavilion a720n desktop with an hp pavilion mx70 monitor and windows xp home. There is a problem with the color displayed on the monitor. I see mainly black and white, but blue shows up fine....


First of all you can check the computer by connecting another monitor to it to see if the problem goes away...if so then the problem would be in the monitor. If not , then I would try to change the video grafics card in the computer(assuming you don't have built in video). If you have built in video on the mother board then you will either need to replace the motherboard or disable the onboard video and install a video card

Hi

Not cleaning per sey but a tune up. CRT monitors have alot of things going on inside (high voltage and high heat). This causes parts to change value. You can send this to my company for a tuneup or take it to a local serviceman. The average price price should be +- $100.00.

Thanks

Monitor won't come on right away


Sounds like the CRT is starting to go bad cause its taking longer and longer for it to boot up. CRT's aren't available now so a new monitor would be the only option.

Monitor is missing pins?


If the monitor is working correctly, there is no problem. Not all 15 pins are used, therefore there is usually two missing.
