Question about ViewSonic G790 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Have no sound

I inherited a ViewSonic G790 19" CRT. I hooked it up to my hp pavilion a510n without any obvious problems. Everthing seems good, but i have no audio. My only previous experience is with my old hp pavilion m50 monitor that had external speakers that hooked on the side of the monitor. What do I need to do to get audio with the viewsonic g790? does is even have internal speakers? sorry such lack of knowledge! any suggestions?

I tried replacing my sata drive in my hp pavilion a1330n with my ide drive that was from my hp pavilion a510n. When i boot up the a1330n with the ide drive i get a blue screen saying that it has shut down...

yes the 2 computers are different. Different processors, different memory,different graphics card.To get your ide drive from your hp pavilion a510n to work in your hp pavilion a1330n, you will have to completely re-load the drive when it is installed in the hp pavilion 1330n. Then it will work fine, but you will not be able to use that drive in your hp pavilion a510n. because you will have the same problem but in reverse.

My hp pavilion doesn't have a sound. The drivers

The main reason would be sound drivers, i recommend uninstalling the drivers in the control panel, hardware sound, device manager, right click, uninstall.. and reboot afterwards, if that doesn't fix the problem than it could be the sound card it blew out, i recommend buying a new sound card.... try hooking up a pair of speakers to it, if you get sound, then its the speakers on your laptop that are bad... good luck!!

Speaker in the Monitor?

It looks like there are no speakers according to:

You should be able to use any external speakers to your system. The question is looks and power. You will likely have to buy speakers that have power in order to get enough volume.

Most speakers that come with monitors are of very, very low quality. You now have the option of buying good speakers (if you want to pay for them). If you are in a hurry you can likely pick up cheap speakers at the drugstore or Walmart. Another option is headphones.

Good luck finding the right sound.

HP Pavilion dv2500 - FTB

The troubleshooting you have done seems to be fine. It does not seem to be a problem with the power supply,cord or battery.Did you try a hard reset. If there is a reset button on the bottom of your laptop, you might want to try pressing that with laptop plugged in, not plugged in, with battery, without battery and different combinations thereof.
If this does not work or you don't have a reset button read on.

Before assuming it's the motherboard, there is one other possibility. There is a part called a PCA switch. It is possible this switch has gone bad or a plug might have come loose.

If you are comfortable with doing your own work, you can obtain a repair manual for your laptop online. Within this manual, it should explain what is involved in replacing this part. It is really not too complicated.

It does not sound like a hard drive problem simply because it doesn't seem to be getting power to any other part of the laptop.

You can try these steps.
