Head Up Display (HUD) Adjustment

1) remove the two Torx screws above the monitor (the stereo / navagation screen). Use a T10 Torx socket to remove screws. 2) The monitor easily comes out as a single piece. No need unplug the monitor, just let it hang off to the side. 3) You will see a cable secured to a clip. Un-clip the cable and you can spin it (by hand) and the HUD will move left and right. 4) Further back and to the left is a 13mm nut on a shaft that has 6mm hex end. Loosen the 13mm silver nut a full turn or two. To loosen, use a 13mm deep socket with a long extension, ¼ inch or 3/8 inch tools will work fine for this. 5) Now to twist this shaft, use a 6mm socket on a long extension. There seems to be a low and high position, anything in the middle seems too hard to get it to stay in position. Tighten the lock nut, check the tilt with the cable, install the main screen with two torx screws. 6) Done!

I have a philips 32pf5531d 32 inch with 1 mdmi socket which i use from the tv to my sky hd box.What i want to do is cancel my sky so am wondering if i got just a broadband package without tv package i can...

If you have an hdmi output in the back of your tower pc then you can just plug this into your telly to get your pc images on your telly. If you have an older monitor with a different type of connection then you will not be able to connect your pc to your telly.

Hope this helps

Is any displayport have in Intel D865GBF Motherboard


It has a VGA port for a VGA monitor. The port is BLUE in color, NOT PURPLE.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector,

Note the number of socket holes, and the arrangement of the socket holes.

There are 5 socket holes across the Top row.
There are 5 socket holes across the Middle row.
There are 5 socket holes across the Bottom row.

The Purple connector with 5 socket holes across the Top row, and 4 socket holes across the Bottom row, is NOT it.
Not the VGA connector.

You can connect a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor, IF it has a VGA cable.

[ There is also an adapter that you can plug a flat LCD screen monitor into, and the other side of the adapter plugs into the VGA port, on the back of your computer.

This is if the flat LCD screen monitor has a DVI cable,

DVI to VGA adapter,



Look at the pins on the adapters. Now look at your monitor cable, and the VGA port on the computer. Make sure which adapter you need ]

For additional question please post in a Comment.

Yellow light is on and monitor is not coming on

This has worked three times on a Dell PC: shut down; turn off monitor and PC at wall socket, unplug wall sockets, wait 30 seconds, plug back in to wall socket or power board, turn on, all should be well?

My monitor will lose its signal from the computer and won't come back on even after I tighten the cables are replace them with different ones. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

the most likely problem here is that the computers video card is failing, if it is a name brand computer like Dell, HP and so on the video card is built into the motherboard which will have to be replaced to correct the probem, the only way to confirm this is to hook up your monitor to antoher computer and see if it wotrks ok, if it does the motherboard is bad.

Have a look on the back of the monitor for the output socket.

If the socket is blue with 15 round holes then this is a SVGA socket, if it is white then it's a DVI socket. Though I believe that this monitor only had SVGA outputs.

Look for these same sockets on the G4, and connect the cable to the matching socket.

If you have one which is blue and one white you will need an adapter for the cable.

I have an LCD 1970GX monitor. I had to get a new

Your NEC 1970GX monitor as two video inputs; an old-school VGA socket (socket and cable connectors usually coloured blue), and a DVI-D digital socket (socket and connectors usually coloured white). Purchase either a new VGA-VGA cable, or if your PC has a white DVI-D socket, a DVI-DVI cable, both relatively cheap options and test this simple option before any further troubleshooting. Many computers and monitors will go to sleep (automatically switch off) after not being used after an adjustable period of time. If this is your problem, you will need to adjust the setting (in power options of both the monitor and PC) to a setting suitable to your usage. You can also, in power options, usually turn off "automatic sleep".
