Question about HP Pavilion F1903 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

HP F1903 turns itself off when connecting DVI

The monitor will turn on and work fine with a VGA input, but when connecting it with DVI it will turn itself off. This is the second (F1903) monitor to do this, the first was a warranty return. I have switched both video cards and DVI Cables. I appreciate any help/advice that can be offered.

Re: HP F1903 turns itself off when connecting DVI

Sounds like your problem is hardware and lies with the port on your PC, this may be due to a bad driver, or bad port! Sounds like you have tried everything else!

in this situation, there are two options. 1.The device connected to your TV via DVI cable is off. 2. DVI cable connected to the HP L1950 is burned.
if you try to connect a device to the HP L1950, it has two ways to connect:
Input Signal - Two connectors: one 15-pin mini D-sub analog VGA and one DVI-D. Try VGA them.

Using with a laptop

Connection the monitor depends on the connections you have out of your Toshiba laptop.

The monitor has both VGA and DVI.

If the Toshiba has a VGA out, all you need is a VGA cable available online, computer or electronics store.

If the Toshiba has an HDMI out, you can connect it to the DVI on the monitor with an HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI Adapter.

You can also use USB out with either a VGA converter or a DVI converter (go with DVI for the better picture). Converters can be found online at Amazon, you may also need a standard male to male DVI cable to use with the converter.

No signal input wen connected to the VGA port of my Dell M1210 (Win 7). using an VGA to DVI cable. If i connect the CG223 to an old laptop (vga) it works fine.

The Dell M1210 hos only a VGA output or s-video output, both being analog. If you are connecting the M1210 VGA to the DVI input on the monitor then this will not work. You need to connect to the VGA input on the monitor.

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,
to replace the video-card with VGA output,
and then use a DVI-to-DVI cable.

I moved and lost the video cable to my HP Pavilion F1903 monitor where can I get a new one

Any "male-male" video-cable will work.

Check whether you need a VGA-to-VGA cable, or a DVI-to-DVI cable, depending on the connectors (oval for VGA, rectangular for DVI) on both your monitor and your computer's video-card.

Try the local "Thrift Shop" (Salvation Army, Value Village, et cetera).
Try any local computer-store.
Try any "big-box" store (BestBuy, Walmart, Staples, OfficeDepot, FutureShop).
Try ''.

F1903 not turning on with tower when restarting

Get a PCI or VGA video Card!

I'd recommend at least somethin like a

nVidia GeForce 7300 GT (256mb) Video Card
You can get one for dirt cheap on
Or your local PC store/Repair shop.

The Problem you are having is your Video Card Driver isn't the correct one, or it's got issues...
You should get a better video card.....yours might be onboard or really low-end rated.

Pre-Manufactured PCs generally ****..... I build WAY better PCs for less.

HPs ****, but not as bad as a Dell (Dell does make the best pre mf 'd Servers which is ironic!)
but the worst pre mf'd PC I've ever fixed was a GATEWAY........

DVI input on monitor not working

Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
