Personally, I would advise that you purchase a separate set of speakers - they don't cost much but it would save on any potential wiring problems!!

Is this a MS-7184 problem? My son's computer has a wavy screen, so I replaced the CRT monitor with a new flat screen. Still wavy. Next, I replaced the onboard video card with a PCI card and nothing shows...


you need to install drivers with the new video card but first you must uninstall the old one-definately a driver issue(assuming all cables are good,etc)

Speakers need power scource


Yes, a general purpose 12V DC power adapter can be bought easily from your local electricals shop.Should not cost much.

Alternatively you can look for a cordless phone or CD player adapter with 12V DC output.

oh i see the first question was way to vauge to really answer. it sounds that this is a powered speaker meaning it requires that 12v that you are reading and wont work without it. i am assuming that the cord coming from the speaker is a male end that plugs into female if that is the case it will be difficult to find an adapter to plug into the wall as those have male ends as well. if there is a female plug on the speaker you should be able to find an adapter that plugs into the wall outlet(transformer) just be sure to match up all specs i.e. 12v 1.0a

Good picture for 30 seconds then screen goes black with a faint ghost of the image


the 12V is for speakers.. the 245bw takes regular 120V AC (same cord as your computer)

the buzzing is annoying, though. i don't know if it's a "feature" or just a side effect.. ie, if i could take the case off and poke around, i would. 4 times out of 5 it's some dumb piece of tin reverberating from a transformer or something..
