How do I connect a ultra high definition monitor to a dell Inspiron 2330 which only has a VGA connection?

Hi Guys I have struck a similar problem with a brand new Samsung 27 inch U28d590d UHD monitor. I have an Inspiron 2330 which as we know has only the VGA out put. I have been given multiple adaptors that takes the VGA to a DVI and / or HDMI but the computer still does not recognise the monitor. I have followed the installation process back to front but I cannot get a signal.... Any ideas?

You could use an HDMI to VGA converter.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: hdmi to dvi

This message may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor (monitor not HD enabled).

The video adapter setting on PS3 for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.

SOURCE: "No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable

Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port



No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

SOURCE: dvi to vga

You will not benefit from the DVI input unless you have DVI output on your computer. The great advantage of DVI is that the picture is transferred in digital form all the way from your computer to the individual pixels on the monitor. If you only have VGA output on your computer then you will never get a better picture than by using a good quality VGA cable to link that to the VGA input on your monitor.

The DVI plug is designed to carry both digital and analogue (VGA) signals on the various pins, so "adaptors" exist to allow a VGA monitor to attach to a DVI output on a computer. Monitors may also support VGA input from their corresponding DVI input sockets, but the picture quality will never be better than by using a good VGA cable because it is still not using the digital capability of the DVI interface. What's more, because you may need more adaptors and thinner conductors in the cable, you will probably achieve a marginally poorer picture than with VGA to VGA.

When you next buy a PC or a new video card, get one with DVI to take advantage of your new monitor. In the meantime, your best bet is a quality VGA to VGA link.

Sorry that's not what you were wanting to hear, but I hope it will help you avoid further frustration.

SOURCE: My monitor says cable not connected

If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck

According to technical specifications for both devices they each have a VGA and HDMI connection. So, you would need a VGA cable, which is not high definition, or an HDMI cable, which is high definition, to connect the two.

My inspiron intel laptop screen has been darkening and flickering and I tryed to do what my laptop told me but it doesn't work is there another solution?


What did your laptop tell you?
Just curious

1) "Help, I'm being held prisoner inside this laptop"
2) "I'm tired, and I'm going to bed. Lights off"
3) "Use the Brightness control, and brighten this screen up"

J/K

An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

An Inverter (Screen Inverter) is used to convert the power from the laptop, to the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the Inverter, when it's a Display Assembly issue.
The rest is a bad LCD screen.

The Inverter is a small rectangular circuit board.
Example,

http://www.nylaptopparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=91_95_125&products_id=299

It is mounted behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen.
{The Display Bezel is the thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen. Resembles a picture frame)

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9400/en/sm/display.htm#wp1006390

Scroll the page down.
(The Inspiron 9400 and Inspiron E1705 uses the same service manual)

Suggest you connect a VGA monitor to the back of the laptop, to the blue VGA connector.
(Laptop OFF, external monitor {VGA} OFF)

You can use a VGA monitor that is a CRT. Looks like a small TV.
Or you can use a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If it is a CRT model, let it warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

The display should automatically be on the external monitor. If it isn't press, and hold down on the Fn key, then tap the F8 key once.
No? Tap the F8 key again. (Still holding down on the Fn key)

If the graphics (Display) is the same on the external VGA monitor, as they it is on the laptop's internal monitor, you have a graphics chipset problem.
Usually requires motherboard replacement, unless you know a really skilled tech.

If the graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have problems in the Display Assembly.

More than likely the screen Inverter.

Pictorial guide for replacing the LCD screen, and the Inverter,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-in-dell-inspiron-9400/

Suggest:
1) Use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
(I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
You can also connect to a unpainted surface of a metal table leg )

2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, you can use a clean egg carton as a substitute.
Label each egg holder.
Some screws look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

Hi hassy786,

Regarding your question if you will use a converter from VGA to HDMI will it provid High Defenition video?

I believe that it will provdie video converting the signal from VGA to an HDMI connection but I do not think that the video will be High Definition since the VGA is just being converted to HDMI signal and not an actual HDMI but just a converted signal, and it is possible that it may not work properly or the LCD TV may have difficulties recognizing the signal from VGA converted to HDMI.

Thanks for chosing Fixya,

Your dell should pick the TV up as a monitor if you have the VGA cable connected. The vga cable has a blue color on the TV but on the laptop, the color of the port is usally brown or dark in color. Windows should pick up on the new device and enable it. The Dell has an Fn key combination to allow you to toggle through the integrated / external monitor choices that you would have with two monitors active, that being clone both desktops to both monitors, extend the desktop from the laptop to the TV, use only the tv and turn the integrated off, use just the integrated and leave the TV off. The key combination is: Fn + F8
