SOURCE: what motherboards are compatible with a compaq presario sr1500nx?

I doubt you will find a non compaq mother board that fits the case.
It might be easier to get a new case and motherboard and then move all other parts to the new case.
I checked the specs online, the system was designed in 2005. The system RAM and CPU will limit you performance.
You might want to try or a similar type of supplier. They may be able to find a replacement that fits.

SOURCE: ATI AGP card and Compaq Presario S3100NX with open AGP Slot

This particular model of the system is basic home use system not built for games.
You can put in either a PCI graphics card or an AGP 4x graphics card that should not take more than 1.5v of power.
The max you can put is 128 MB , you can try the 256 MB, but i would suggest against it .

Thanks for using fIxya

SOURCE: sound problem

This is fairly common after installing new hardware or software.

There are several easy fixes, but the one that works best is to:

Uninstall your Sound devices, reboot, and your system will automatically reload them either from your System drivers or from the Internet/Microsoft.

There are many other simple ways, but this has the highest positive results and usually removes problems and reverts back to the working defaults.

SOURCE: 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

Regards :)

I figure I need a replacement graphics card. The PC worked fine yesterday. Turned it on today and no signal to monitor. Tried both DVI and HDMI with the same result. Monitor is Gateway LP2417.

try pulling the power cord out of the monitor and then wait 30 seconds and pull it back in to monitor . Are you dealing with a graphics card or a motherboard video chip. May have DVI and HDMI plugged into motherboard rather than PCI video card. Check Bios to see if conflict exists between motherboard video chip and PCI video card.

I am having a Problem with my video card not letting me run an addition monitor off the vga output on the motherboard. I know it works because I can go to the bios and change it and it works but they want...

When using a PCI or PCI-E graphics card, it will disable your standard VGA output port because the up-dated graphics card and your factory VGA port require different display drivers. Usually, the drivers are conflicting and will make your system unstable and cause it to crash. In short, you can't use both at the same time. I have a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card installed on my PC and it too has disabled my standard VGA port. If you are trying to use more than one monitor, you have to install a graphics card that supports a multiple display output. The graphics card will either have 2 VGA ports, 2 DVI-D ports or 2 HDMI ports or even any combination of the 3. My card, for example, has 1 VGA, 1 DVI-D & 1 HDMI. I can run up to 3 monitors at a time via my graphics card, but I cannot run a 4th monitor from my factory VGA port. My graphics card uses ATI/AMD drivers while my VGA port requires the use of Nvidia drivers.
I hope that you find this useful.

How to add second monitor on ECS RS482-M

Doesn't work that way Max.

You can use EITHER the OnBoard Graphics,
the Add-On Card graphics. (Graphics card)

BIOS will NOT support both at the same time.

If you wish to use dual monitors, get an AGP card that has more than one graphics port on it.

For example, although I'm using a graphics card based on the PCI Express technology, and not AGP technology; my card has a VGA port, DVI port, and HDMI port.

1) VGA Connector;

2) DVI;

3) HDMI;

I use the VGA port, and the DVI port.

RCA EN-V L26HD31, (26 inch HDTV) to the VGA port.
HP 2009M 20 inch Widescreen monitor to the DVI port.

Had to install drivers for HP 2009M.

Let's say I had two DVI ports on the graphics card.
(ATI Radeon HD5450 is the graphics card I have)

But I have a monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor with a DVI cable.
I would (And have) use a VGA to DVI Adapter.
One example,

Note that the DVI is Male, and the VGA is Female.
The graphics card DVI connector is Female.
The VGA Cable connector is Male.

So.............what is the manufacturer name, and model number of the graphics card; plus what type of monitors are you trying to use?
That is, what type of monitor cables do they have?

Know this;
My HDTV I'm using as a monitor is Digital. However I'm using a VGA cable on it. Best quality would be achieved if I got off my lazy rear, and attached a DVI Cable to it. It uses both.

VGA is Analog. A computer however puts out a digital video signal.
The computer has to convert the digital video signal to an Analog one. This slows the video signal down, and the quality is not as good.

Best to use a digital monitor. (Or a digital monitor WITH a digital cable. DVI Cable. Such as I need to do)

You are also using a PCI Express graphics card, NOT an AGP graphics card.

I'm wrong? OK.

In the meantime turn the computer off, unplug from power, and yank that AGP card out of the slot you put it in.

Tell me what expansion slot on the motherboard you put it in.

The Orange expansion slot on the motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot. Uses a PCI Express graphics card -> ONLY

The white expansions slots are PCI.
Can use a PCI graphics card. CANNOT use an AGP graphics card.

Alba 22 Inch monitor drivers

You need to explain your actual problem. What operating system, graphics card, PC, resolution required, monitor model number, connector type being used (VGA, DVI, HDMI) etc.
Monitors don't usually require drivers to work. Drivers for your graphics card may affect operation or you may be using the wrong lead/connector/interface.

I have an AOC L19WH LCD monitor. I am trying to get sound out of the monitors speakers but am having problems.

I can't find the model number you posted from the AOC website, so its hard to help you.

The only way you can get sound from a monitor is if you plug in the HDMI cable, this means that you need a graphics card with HDMI, very few computers have onboard HDMI.

Monitors that have speakers use HDMI and they need to be plugged into a HDMI port.

If you are using the DVI port, you will NOT get any sound.

You need to post the correct model number or a link to your manual, you also need to post what computer and what graphics card you have.

If you post this info, then someone can help.

The posts above are funny, a PSU has nothing to do with sound.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?

the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

After replacing HDD and installing Windows 7 computer appears to not recognize 42" plasma TV as monitor connected to HDMI port. Worked before HDD replacement.

You will likely need to reinstall your video drivers. You'll need to find the make and model of your video card and then go to the manufacturer's website to install the proper drivers.
