Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4
Can the monitor work with an older HP computer? A box comes up in the middle of the screen saying out of range can't close box mouse goes behind box.
Your query - "can the monitor work with an older HP computer?"
Normally yes, assuming that there is no hardware fault. The message is an indicator that somehow the settings of the display of the old HP computer does not match that of the Emachine 15' LCD monitor.
Perhaps what you can do is to run the old HP PC in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows starts), using the arrow keys, select top mode setting in the Menu which is Safe Node, hit enter. Windows should then start and normally should be viewable no matter what settings the monitor can handle. On Safe Mode Windows, right click on any clear area of the desktop, click on properties, Settings tab, move the Screen resolution to the left most position, set the color quality to the lowest possible choice. Click on Advanced button, click on Monitor tab, set Screen Refresh Rate to lowest possibler, OK, OK, reboot.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back if things worked out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards
