The cable for the monitor has to plug into the desktop. So it's a VGA cord or DV Cord depending on the type of video card you have on your desktop. Some have a built in VGA port. Make sure you connect this to your desktop.

My computeris running but I have a black screen. Could this be the battery in the mother board?


the battery on the motherboard is what keeps your cmos and bios up to date. this problem could be a bad connection of the monitor cable into the back of your computer, a bad monitor, try hooking up another monitor, or a bad video driver. i would try and hook up another monitor to your computer or hook your monitor up to another computer to see what happens.
if your moniter works on another computer and you have an onboard video driver, try installing a video card.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

HP Pavilion M9040N Elite, power lights come on, will not boot


unhook everything that is hooked to it ! Except the keyboard mouse and Display. now try it ! If that doesn't work try to start in safe mode then do a system Restore to an earlier date. there could be a number of things to cause this even a mouse, So one at a time try to remove all that you can and then go from there and one at a time hook all back up until you find it. if not there have to start inside the machine, Doing the same thing/ video,sound,cd roms/floppy/etc.hope you find it in the first round.

Some CD's are protected and will not let you rip them to your computer. You may be able to find programs that can get around it, but they are probably illegal.
