Is this computer monitor compatible with a Dell computer?

If your computer has a HDMI out port or a VGA out port it will work you may need drivers but it probably came with a driver cd if not just go to and search for ""Hannspree 19" Drivers"". A VGA port is blue with 3 lines of 5 holes and looks like a triangle with the top cut off.

My monitor suddenly has become distorted. It appears scrunched horizontally, from both the right and left sides. The whole monitor image is visible, but it is distorted. I have checked the cables, reset...

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer (desktop/laptop).

If the symptoms persist, it's time to responsibly recycle the CRT, and to replace it with a 19-inch LCD monitor.

Use a different monitor to test and set up the PC, try lowering down resolution settings, and test also the video cable.

Try also changing the monitor input channel, just in case this is set on a different connection input.

No XP driver for Hannspree New york 19 inch monitor

Hi David,

Thanks for the comment regarding what type of computer equipment that you have. The integrated video card that you are using definitely is not designed for the widescreen monitors and will not work properly with the widescreen (as you have noticed). The solutions that you can use would be to get a non-widescreen standard monitor or install a new video card that has widescreen capability.

Hope that helps,

Take care,

No display, clipping sound appear

The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor.
It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short).
Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works.
CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT.

Distorted digital photos

Most likely the resolution of your desktop has and aspect ratio that in incorrect for your monitor. The native resolution of that monitor if 1440x900. Use the Windows (if using windows) desktop properties to set the desktop resolution to 1440x900.
