I have got acer aspire net book size is 8.9 inch. Ca i connect it to external monitor


Hi.

Sure you can with a standard VGA video cable.

Maybe you will have to change your screen resolution to get the best display layout.

Hope it helps!

I am trying to hook up my monator to the computer(cpu) and only nave one wire to it. I think there should have 2. I was looking for a hookup diagram. Can't find one HELP


There should be two cables coming from your monitor -- one that hooks up to the computer and one that goes to the outlet, for power. The outlet cable looks almost like a normal power cable, with three prongs on one end and three holes on the other end.

The cable that hooks to your computer is likely a serial cable, with a blue connector that hooks up to the blue port on the back of your PC. Instead of the serial connector, you might have a DVI connector, which is skinnier and should have a removable white cap on it. If your computer has a DVI port, than you can use the DVI cable, otherwise you'll have to use the serial cable (with the blue connector).

Hope that helps.

The screen is black and the power light is flashing not constant and I don't think the hard drive is turning


If the screen remains black and does not show the BIOS window when powering up, coupled with the lack of hard drive power, then it sounds like you have a motherboard failure.

If your fans also do not come up, then that will confirm it.

Do a Google search on video adapter cables.
You did not give details of what type of video connectors on the monitor and video card on the computer.

It turns on and turn off automatically


Either your monitor's cable is kaput or the display device feeding the monitor has croaked.

Can you test your monitor on another computer?

If it works on the other computer, then it would be your card (add-on or on-board) for the display.
If it doesn't work on the other computer then your cable should be bad.

No sound coming from my Dell 173FP monitor


This monitor does not have built in speakers you will need to buy some... The AS 500 soundbar fits on to it but is now not available. See if you can find it second hand.. Or buy USB speakers that fit into the back of your PC as the mointor does not have any ports.

Powerpoint 2007 get sound from one monitor to another


Some monitors have speakers built-in, some don't. The sound never travels through the 15pin d-type VGA connector. If the monitor has sound, there will be a small 1/8 inch stereo jack in the back or bottom of the monitor. Most all laptops have a headphone output jack (again 1/8 inch stereo) which is perfect for patching to external amplified speakers or to a monitor with speakers built-in. This patch cable can be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc etc.
