Question about Compaq P 1220 22" CRT Monitor
I just bought a used HP dc7600 Convertible Minitower. I have two monitors, one of them came along with the computer and it's a Compaq p1220, the other one is a rather old HP monitor. A HP w19b I think. Anyhow, neither of the monitors will power up fully when I've connected it. With the p1220 (Which I've personally seen working with the computer before.) goes into power save mode as soon as I turn it on. shortly after it fades to black. With the Hp w19b, something similar happens, but it says "No Signal" and it too goes to black. I am 90% positive. it isn't the computer as I can hear the "Windows opening theme" thingy, (The little melody that plays when the desktop comes up) and I can also hear the USB-thing-connected/disconnected sound effect. Now, as I'm no computer freak, I'd appreciate some understandable words here, and thank you for the help. ;)

Your monitor is operating normally. After Windows starts it is setting the video resolution to something outside of the monitor's range. That's why you see the Windows splash screen, then the message from the monitor about the settings. Most likely the computer was used before with a monitor that had a wider range of resolutions available.
Restart the computer. When the manufacturer's logo screen appears, press the F8 key three or four times. This should get you a startup menu screen. Pick the option of starting in VGA mode, and Windows will start with video settings that your monitor supports.

Try this first : Load the bios (F10 - vista or F1 - XP), Load setup defaults F5. then Save changes F10, and try restarting your pc.
Secondly, after restarting your pc, on the HP invent screen, keep tapping on F9 for the diagnostic test
If theres no any error message, press any other key ACCEPT for the 'R' key to restart or repeat the test.
Other sollution ----------------------
Try loading into safe mode F8, select on the safe mode and let the computer stays into safe mode for sometime.
If the pc doesnt restart, it means theres no any HW problem in ur pc. If it does the same, it means, you will need to check your Power supply, M/board with your tech

SOURCE: Monitor moving on its own
On your physical monitor adjust the verticle and horizontal lengths to take up the full length of the screen. The CRT guns have to draw the exact location of your screen, so extending them to the edges will be easier on the guns. You can also try raising the refresh rate, although that probably wont fix it but it will help on your eyes. and if You have other options like convergence, focus, etc. Try messing with those.
