Hi there.
You need to set the screen resolution.

What is vga/dvi cables


VGA and DVI is in the way the video signals travel. VGA connectors and cables carry analog signals while DVI can carry both analog and digital. DVI is newer and offers better, sharper display compared to VGA. You can easily tell them apart because VGA connectors (and ports) are blue while DVI connectors are white.

1 Answer

Just go a dell precision 380 hook up for the monitor has 3 prongs and the computer has 2 what do I need to hook it up.


http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Workstation-Performance-Interlaced-Professional/dp/B008D3NKAS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366389036&sr=8-1&keywords=dell+precision+380

On the left side are different views. I am looking at the REAR view

At the Bottom, of the Rear of the computer, are 6 expansion slot openings.
Two of the expansion slot openings have an adapter card in them.
The other 4 are covered with an expansion slot cover. (Metal)

One of the adapter cards is a Graphics Card.

Looking at the Back of the computer, and from Left to Right;
there is a;

1) S-Video port
Black in color, round in shape

2) DVI port
White in color, parallelogram in shape

3) VGA port
Blue in color, parallelogram in shape

This article shows a graphics card with the same setup,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/fullimage.php?image=879

S-Video,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Video-Connectors-Tutorial/157/4

You can use the S-Video port, or the VGA port, or the DVI port; to connect a monitor.
However out of all three, the DVI port is the best.

VGA is Analog.
Your computer puts out a digital signal. (Digital video signal)

DVI is Digital Visual Interface. In otherwords - Digital.
Therefore DVI is the best.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

Armed with the above information, can you clarify more about your problem?

For example;

Monitor cable has three prongs........

Using the above information, can you tell me what monitor cable it is?

Computer has two...........

Can you tell me where on the computer, you are trying to plug the monitor into?

Please post back in a Comment.

1: Resolving Laptop LCD Lines,
Fuzzy, Color, or Blurry Issues

Verify that the BIOS and Video drivers are the latest available from Support.Dell.Com Website, for more information refer to Dell Knowledge Base article, "How to Use the Drivers and Downloads Website"


Test the LCD in the System Setup (BIOS).
To enter the computer BIOS Setup Screen perform the following steps:
At the first text on the screen or when the Dell logo appears, tap <F2> until the message Entering Setup appears.
Note:
Some older Dell computers use an alternate key sequence instead of to enter System Setup. These key sequences include:
<Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Enter>
<Delete>
<Fn>+<F1> (laptop computers only)
<Fn>+<Esc> (laptop computers only)
If you observe the same issue on the setup screen, it is not an issue with the Operating System, it is a hardware issue, Contact Technical Support/font>.


Run the Laptop Built-In Self-Test (BIST).
To run the Built-In Self-Test perform the following:
Turn the computer off.
Press and hold the D key while pressing the power button. This will start the BIST.
The screen will display multiple flashing colors. Look for lines, distortion, or any other video issues you have observed.
The laptop will restart when the test is finished.
Click the following link to see an English-only video of this test How to Run LCD BIST Video .

If the LCD BIST passes, proceed to Step 4, otherwise Contact Technical Support.

For information on Beep Codes/Error Codes refer to Dell Knowledge Base article, Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics and Error Codes For Dell Computers

Connect to an external monitor (if available), for the different types of external monitor ports that may be available on your computer refer to (Figure 1).


Display Port
Display Port is a new digital standard for connecting monitors to computers and has the capability to provide a scalable digital display interface with optional audio and high-definition content protection (HDCP) capability. Display Ports usually resemble USB Ports with one side angled.
A Display Port cable should be used if Display Port connectors are available on both the computer and the monitor.

DVI
Digital Video Interface (DVI) is the digital standard for connecting monitors to computers. DVI connections are usually color-coded with white plastic and labels.
DVI cables provide a higher quality signal than VGA cables. A DVI cable should be used if DVI connectors are available on both the computer and the monitor.

VGA
Video Graphics Array (VGA) is the analog standard for connecting monitors to computers. VGA connections are commonly color-coded with blue plastic and labels.
A VGA cable should be used if DVI connectors are not available on either the monitor or the computer.


Once it's connected, press and hold down the FN and press F8, this should display the screen on the external monitor.

When the external monitor does not work or you did not have one to test with, Contact Technical Support.

When the external monitor does work it may be an issue with the Operating System. Verify that all the drivers are the latest available from Support.Dell.Com Website, for more information refer to Dell Knowledge Base article, "How to Use the Drivers and Downloads Website". When that does not fix the issue the Operating System may need to be reinstalled, for more information refer to Dell Knowledge Base article, "How To Restore or Reinstall Microsoft Windows on a Dell Computer".


Check for visible damage to the LCD. To identify any damage not visible to the ***** eye, ensure you run LCD BIST on the system (refer to Step 3).

If the LCD has damages which is not covered by any applicable statutory warranty, limited hardware warranty and/or Dell-branded service, including Complete Care / Accidental Damage service, there may be a cost incurred by you for the replacement of parts.

Connect dual monitors


The port with 15 holes is a VGA connector and most monitors have a connection for those it's a blue connector. The other you describe sounds like a DVI connector. Most new monitors have that as well and it's a white connector.

11750867-tewsfb12kpevcqwroz5uwqx5-2-0.jpg Once you have both monitors hooked up and turned on, they should automatically come on and show your Windows desktop. You may have to tweak the resolutions if the monitors are different. That can be done in the resolutions settings : Control Panel\Display\Screen Resolution

This video, starting around the 2 minute mark, gives a good overview of those settings and what they do.
How to Windows 7 Multiple Monitor Setup

One thing he mentions that is important is that the monitors are set to the right inputs or source. Look for a button, usually on the right or bottom of the monitor, that says "source" or "input" or has a symbol of an arrow pointing at into a screen - it looks like #2 in this photo:

http://en.community.dell.com/resized-image/__size/550x0/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/3529/6354.monitor-settings.JPG

The monitor connected with the blue VGA connector usually says "VGA" or "Analog". The monitor with the white DVI connector usually says "DVI" or "Digital".

Good luck!

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

mvincentc
