Question about Compaq Presario SR1120NX 2.66GHZ Tower w/ CD-RW (2018267632) PC Desktop

1 Answer

My SyncMaster 930b suddendly went blank except for "Check Signal Cable" box floating around. All has been working fine on my Windows WP Proffessional system. The cable from the desktop CPU has not been disturbed and is still connected properly. Turning monitor off and on does not help.

    So you are saying it probably is not a problem with the monitor, but in the CPU. Correct?
    Give me a few minutes to plug the monitor into this laptop as a check.


  • dnvjohnson Jul 27, 2009

    Plugged into this laptop. No image. In display properties shows monitor 2 is inactive. Since I have used this
    laptop to drive my large Samsung TV using the same settings, it would seem that the problem is with this 930b
    monitor.

    Not sure you got this so sending again.

    Connecting monitor to this laptop did not change image on monitor. In the past, connecting my Samsung tv
    to this laptop worked fine. I am using the same settings.

    for this monitor, the Display properties shows 2 not active

Try a different video card or booting up PC via cd rom. Possibly bad video drivers or card.

My screen just stopped working and I have a rectangular box floating around in a counterclockwise rotation that says " Check cable signal " Do you have any ideas? It was working fine up...


that means your monitor is working fine, just check your video connection on both ends of the monitor and PC.

maybe your PC has two video cards, try to plug in another video connector

Check signal cable


Check if the monitor is not working by connecting this monitor to another computer.

If the monitor woks on another pc, then the pc is the issue and not the monitor.

If monitor doesnt work on the other pc, then it's the monitor that needs replacing.

I hope this helps you :)

A box stating not optimum mode-get distorted internet images


Sounds like your resolution is not set correctly.

Try going to Start-->Control Panel-->Display and choose the Settings Tab

Under there change the resolution slider bar to 1280x1024

Should do the trick!
