Question about ASUS LCD Monitor

Open Question

I don't know how to begin to connect my new Asus VS 208 monitor to my "old" Dell computer. There is only 1 cable from my current monitor to the computer. Which of the new cables will I use?

On the back of my new monoitor there isi ithe AC-IIN port, a DVI port, and a VGA port. On my oldl/current monitor there is no cable connected to the DVI port. Do I need to use thisi port on the new monoitor?

Since you have narrow down the problem to be the monitor, the next to do is to open it up. First place to look will be the capacitors in the power supply (common problem with ALL monitors). Please look here to get some ideas what to look for inside.

What happen if you use the VGA or the DVI ports? Do you get the pictures OK on the other two ports. Only one port at a time can be used.

Click here to see your screen specifications.

Your screen Supports DVI, HDMI 1.3 and VGA inputs.

Your Computer should have at least one of these connectors. The cables should have come with the screen.
Match them up, I would use either HDMI or DVI as these are digital signals.
VGA is analog, but if you can only use this one then go for it.

I do not see a reason to purchase an adapter.

Simply plug in at the wall and into the Graphics card of your computer.
You might have a card or onboard Graphics.

Thumbs up!
Let me know how it goes!

Plugged in my emachine LE1938 to my dell without the DVI cable, screen displays 'no signal'. Shouldn't the monitor work without the DVI cable?


The DVI cable transports the display signal from the video card to the monitor.

I think what Ron is asking is if you used a different cable to connect the monitor to the computer. (I'm assuming you used an old 15 pin monitor cable or whatever those old cables were?)

Without getting into your BIOS:

So on your computer, you probably have an onboard video card (a video card built into the motherboard itself), and a dedicated video card (probably where you're seeing the DVI out).

It may be possible that you have the on board video card (with the traditional connection) disabled, when the dedicated video card is plugged in.

This isn't rocket science, so don't worry. Phillips head screwdriver is all you need.

Pull the side panel off your computer (assuming it's a tower... if not, it's the top panel). Once you have it off, you'll see that video card plugged into a slot on the motherboard, with 1 phillips head screw holding it in place (inside, near the back, where the DVI port is).

Pull the screw, and the video card should come out. From there, the BIOS should recognize your card is missing, and thus revert to using the onboard video card.

  1. VIA a serial cable (looks like monitor cable is not). You have use something like telnet. Old school and very technical.
  2. Just connect a monitor, keyboard, and mouse and treat like a regular PC. Can't go wrong.

I cannot hear any sound from my Dell monitor 1702FP. Are there speakers installed within the monitor?. VGA cable is connected. When I use a spare monitor using the VGA cable the sound is loud and clear. ...


The Dell 1702FP doesn't have speakers.The specs of the Dell 1702FP are available here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/1702fp/en/specs.htm . (BTW neither does the Dell 1704FPT.) However, some Dell monitors can have a sound bar (speaker set-up) mounted on the monitor.

VGA cables don't carry sound. Check if a second cable (an audio patch cable is connected to the computer and the second monitor). (There are some cables that actually bundle the 3.5 mm patch cable with the video cable for convenience. (I've seen a number of DVI cables with that bundle option.) The plugs will separate into separate units at each end.

Other monitors do have speakers built in - look for a 3.5 mm audio input jack with the rest of the input connections on your monitor. There are some monitors that accept an HDMI input with a 3.5 mm audio out jack; these monitors don't have speakers and thus are enabling a daisy chain to connect the speakers to the monitor. So you do need to be careful and look for the audio in label.

You can attach a set of speakers to your computer using the audio out (look for a lime green 3.5 mm jack on the back of a desktop). For laptops or to use the front audio ports, look for a headphone jack.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your monitor and computer for additional assistance.

I just reconnected my kds monitor and it does not come on I only have one cord and it connects to the computer should there be another power connection. Don't know where my skematic for this monitor...


you can get the support information on the monitor from KDS here
All monitors have at least 2 connections, 1 power and 1 data cable (Some have multiple data input options all have at least 1)
In most cases the power is a standard 3 pin PC outlet cable (Same cable as a desktop computer uses) some more compact designs us an AC adapter and DC input similar to a portable computer.
If you post the exact model I can post a more exact answer

Hello, i have a dell inspiron 530 and when i turn it on, all you hear is the fan spinning and it doesnt stop. Nothing comes up on the screen and i've checked all the parts and everything seems fine....


Hello-

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Most of the time if a Desktop computer turns on but you see nothing on the screen,
It may be an issue w/ the monitor or it's cable connection.

Please verify that the monitor cable is connected to the correct port. By default the Dell™ Inspiron™ 530 only comes w/ a VGA monitor port (built-in graphics adapter) at the back unless you installed a discrete graphics adapter on the computer.

If the monitor is connected to the correct port then you might consider running a monitor Power-on Self Test (P.O.S.T).

How to do a Monitor Power-on Self Test (P.O.S.T)
1. Unplug the monitor's data cable, this is the cable that goes to the back of your computer tower.
If you are using an old monitor most likely you have a VGA monitor. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Make sure the monitor's power cable is plugged in.
3. Turn the computer on.

My Compaq 1825 monitor is showing pink/green instead of its usual colours. I went for dinner and came back to this.. wat do.


This is probably one of three problems that often screw up the colors on a monitor.

This is most likely a problem of your computer overheating. To fix this:

1. Open your computer and clear out any dust particles with a vacuum. Just make sure not to hit any of the parts of the computer and break it.
2. Get a cooling system. This could be as simple as pointing a fan at your computer and turning it on to buying a water cooling system. Just do something to try to keep your average heat lower.

This is most often the problem and will clear up your problem. If not it may be a problem of a bad cable.

1. To test this you could go out and buy a completely new cable and connect the monitor with that cable. If you don't want to pay for a new cable not knowing if that's the problem, just borrow a cable from a friend, neighbor, or your work and test with that. If it works with the new cable, buy a new one and that fixes the problem.

If neither of those solutions fix the problem it is most likely just a problem with the hardware in the monitor. If the monitor is still under warranty, contact Compaq support and have them replace it. If it is not, you'll need to buy a new monitor.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Why does my asus monitor always read "no signal".


nah that happens with me sometimes..
have you connect the cable properly?
if that still can't make it works, first turn on your PC and monitor..
then plug off the cable that power them, so that your computer and monitor will suddenly off..
plug it on again, then your monitor will work again..
that works on mine cause my CPU is too old and had a power problem..

Hi ,
You are probably facing a power supply issue , though this device isn't exceptionally gready in power consumption .
You will need to replace the PSU by a larger one . 450 Watts will do but don't hesitate to go for a 600 W since these units are fairly cheap .

Whenever the monitor is turned on, it displays for about 3 seconds and then goes black. what to do? It is only about 3 yrs old


One of three things is the most likely culprit.

1. Onboard video card is either disabled or bad.
2. Cable is bad
3. Monitor is bad.

You can check the last 2 relativly easily by hooking the monitor and cable up to another computer to see if they function. if they don't then first try swapping out the cable (i say this first because its cheaper) then swap out the monitor.

To see if the video card is bad try hooking up a different monitor to the system. If the new monitor is not displaying anything then you most likely will need to put a new video card in the machine.
