Question about Compaq Presario SR1103WM-B (PC183B#ABA) PC Desktop

LCD Monitor stays on 4 bit resolutionm

I have a Compaq Presario SR1103WM PC and bought an ACER 2216 LCD monitor. I tried installing the software that came witjh the monitor and it keeps telling me that I need drivers.

I tried going to Start - Control Panel - Display to change the Settings to 32 bit and the monitor size but it keeps flipping back to 4 bit after I enter. This should work with plug and play even without the CD software??

Is there something I can set on the PC or do I need drivers..Helllp!!!

(The monitor is fine with another PC)

Its your VGA card that's having issues with the LCD display. Try reinstalling the VGA drivers see if it works.

Hp computer monitor


Hey, the problem you are getting is caused by the pc, when you switch on the pc it sends a signal from the graphics card to the monitor to come off sleep mode and display a picture,

it could be the graphics card, or memory or something more serious,
would try taking out the graphics card and memory and putting them back in see if the machine starts up.. works most of the time..

All the best

Blank screen


When you say "When I turn on the computer the monitor acts like it is getting no power", do you mean the light on monitor doesn't come on or it does and it states it has "No Signal"? If it says no signal then it is receiving power just no signal from computer. What kind of connection is it? Digital(white) or analog(blue)? Is the keyboard wireless or is it PS/2?

If the keyboard isn't wireless and you're plugging the monitor in correctly I would say it's a power supply issue. Try changing the outlet you're using and/or bypass the surge protector to plug directly into wall.
