Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop

Switching from Dell monitor to LCD monitor

I'm trying to figure out how I can transfer or "switch out" the audio on my Dell 4500 to the new flat screen monitor I am now using. As ridiculously easy as this may be, and the answer under my nose, I can't figure out what to plug into what, or if I need some new cable from the audio source of the Dell to the audio input of the flat screen. What to do?

Benq 567s lcd monitor does not power up. Switch led blinks but goes dead. Tried replacing capacitor 450v 82uf with 400v 100 uf but did not work. please help.

That cap is for the Primary power supply switching circuits. How is the DC secondary side, no blown fuse, shorted transistors in the inverter circuits? Pictures will help,
It may have the same bd as DELL since BenQ makes monitors for DELL and HP.

1. Try on another monitor to rule out VGA card.
// If overclocked return to default values, disable automatic overclocking if selected in BIOS, check cooling

2. Try another cable, if both VGA and DVI connections exist try switching between them ( cables )

Dell 1703FP monitor issue

reduce the hardware acceleration on it. I resolved it by reducing acceleration and changing my screen size. It works. I wanted higher resolution but it doesn't seem to be possible for some reason.
Good luck.

Hi bsut96,
Check the cable between the monitor and the box for damage. Try a new cable. It may be a problem with the input board but it sounds like a cable problem. Let me know what you find and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Monitor goes black

it depends whether it displays anything. There's only one fuse which determines if the power is on or nor. If your monitor turns on, I would not look for the bad fuse.
