How to connect the HDMI Cable from monitor to Computer which has no HDMI ports?

Hi there,

You need a purchase a new cable. I assume your HP pavilion is under 5 years old. And you should have a white DVI port in the back for a monitor. If you do have that connector, then all you need is a DVI - HDMI cable, make sure the DVI will be to the computers end and HDMI to the monitor.

for example this cable:

The monitor does not turn on. Thank you.

check the power cord connections and the COM port if its connected properly to the CPU or Video card slot.

or try another monitor to be able to see if your old monitor is damage.

My pc lights and fans work, but the screen shows nothing.

Check everything you need to check.

Follow the following tips and guides.

  1. Check if your computer monitor is tightly connected or rather properly connected to the CPU.
  2. If it is connected properly but still doesn't functions, try plugging another monitor and see if it lights and works.
  3. If the other Monitor runs then the old monitor is your problem. (maybe the problem is the cables or the tube itself.
  4. As for me, i advice you to use a monitor which gets its power from the CPU. (the power cord of your Monitor is not a plug but rather a connection from Monitor to CPU.)
If you have other questions and concerns regarding your problem and the guide shown above, feel free to update this post.

If you also need some drivers, kindly update me.

I have laptop. & monitor with CPU.

I had this same problem, but I could find no solution. There are some companies that make a device that would work but they cost far more than a new monitor. Sorry.

My monitor doesnt work while my cpu does

Try connecting the monitor to another desktop/laptop, to see if the monitor still works.

Try connecting another monitor to your computer,
to see if the video-card on your computer is producing any output.

There is no way you can hook up your CPU to your laptop monitor. Sorry to say. You will need a replacement. Goodwill? eBay? Friend? Yard Sale?

Samsung 940B monitor, 14 months old. Power light on when connected to PC, but no images, not even menu or Digital/Analogue prompt. PC recognizes the monitors presence,any ideas please?

Monitors are passive components in a computer system. These just receive signal from the CPU. You may find another CPU and connect your monitor to it to test if it really doesn't work. If it works, this may just mean that your video adapter has a problem.

You can also check the cable attached to the monitor. It may be damaged due to twisting or other causes. Check also if the port is inserted firmly.

Before we moved to a new house my samsung syncmaster 710v monitor was working fine but when I reconnected monitor to the cpu, no picture appears but green power led flashes and when i disconnect the...

First make sure all cables are tight and secured, and try pressing the Auto Button on your Syncmaster? It's for auto configuration.

If problem persist and if possible can you try using another known normal monitor/LCD? Also try your monitor using another cpu or laptop.
