Question about Compaq P 1220 22" CRT Monitor

Open Question

P1220 won't start

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. ;)

SOURCE: problem with compaq MV 520 monitor

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.

SOURCE: power problem with HP Compaq d530 Convertible Minitower Desktop

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.

No videos playing on my HP dc7600 convertible minitower PC

Have you installed Abode Flash Player? If not, get it here. If you did install it and the issue still exists, it might be the Windows Media Player plugin. You can go to Microsoft's website to get the plugin.

HP Compaq dc7600 convertible minitower version. CPU clock slow. Replaced CMOS battery twice just to be sure I didn't get a bad one the first time around. Get a new CPU? Get a new MB? Trash it and...

Try installing the system board driver and chpset driver.
You can also try setting the BIOS to factory default settings.
If you have a volt meter check to see if there is votage at the battery connector, and the power supply connectors are plugged into the mother board, which I suppose you are, just an idea, if the above suggestions don't resolve your issue.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a fantastic day.
