Using 42HP66 as a Computer Monitor for a Compaq Presario 2150NX Desktop

I can't seem to get my 42HP66 to work properly with my desktop computer. I can run it in Safe Mode w/ networking but can't run it in Normal Mode....I keep getting a NO SYNC SIGNAL messege. Also when i run it in safe mode i get 3 blurry spots on the screen, one in the center of the screen stretching the width of the screen and 2 more on the top as well as the bottom. Anyone have a solution?

    I'm having the same problem running my Compaq Presario CQ62 on my Insignia NS-LCD22-09. It will run in safe mode, but not normally. I get a Mode Note Supported message if I try to run it in normal mode. I tried looking for a Start in VGA mode option, but to no avail. If you have any suggestions for my particular problem I'm listening. Thanks

Reboot your PC! When the pc starts booting up push F8 it will take you to the same screen asking you if you want to run the pc in safe mode! What you want to do is to select the Start PC in VGA mode! It should set your video card to a default setting allowing it to work with the TV!

I hope this helps you!

Please feel free to call or message me if you need more help!

My compaq 1725 computer moniter won't turn on when I press the power button. The actual desktop is on and seems fine but the monitor remains dark without even giving the orange light that it used to.

first check the power cable if its properly plugin, and check if ac to dc adaptor has a output power.
you can check it by using digital voltmeter or an analog multimeter, you can see the pin output in the back of the adaptor, it has positive and negative sign.

Powers up screen is black, will work on external moniter

atomikhound, May need to find correct drivers for this unit. Try search at HP website using the unit's product number on rear of the monitor. What is date of manufacture on this unit? It seems that this monitor only works with a Presario 4800 series desktop computer for which it was custom designed for. The article I read at "" said it should be used as a boat anchor if you can't get a copy of original 48xx system restore disks that have the special "drivers" needed for it. Good luck. 12fixlouie

Trying to hook up compaq presario 5000 desktop, monitor is not working correctly, it works with the old Gateway computer, so I know the monitor and cable are good

check to see if you have two ports in the back of your desktop, try the other one if you do. If not, there is most likely a loose connection.

Sr1720nx compaq presario no signal to monitor

Try changing the VGA cable or the other cable you are using.......

If that does not resolve your problem and that the monitor is good it means that your desktop's graphic card is damaged.....

Try replacing the graphic card or if it is an internal one..... add one in your agp or pcie slot
