Double check the connection. Once you are sure that the cable is properly connected and the cable itself is not damaged, you may need to switch the output on your portable PC, assuming that is what you are using, based on the icon. If it is a notebook PC, they often have a switching hotkey command that is used to switch output of video between internal display and external displays. Try that... Also, make sure that the external display is capable of displaying the resolution your PC is sending, as this can also cause it not to work.

I deleated the comp.admin. acct . how do i get it back, someone told me safe mode , don't know what to do . will have to scrap the comp. 32 bit dell xp

Hopefully, you know about what date you deleated your stuff. If so, or even if you can guess pretty close, you can restore your computer to an earlier date -- which will result in you still having this stuff.....

Go to: Start; all programs; accessories; system tools; system restore. Choose "restore computer to an earlier time"; follow the will walk you through

Hope that helps

How do i fix if my computer scan is out of range

I am assuming you are talking about your monitor. What this message means is that your monitor can't handle the resolution your video card is set to. Re-start your computer and as soon as the first screen goes by (you know the one with all numbers and stuff) start hitting the F8 key. This will start the computer in safe mode which uses a very low resolution (usually 640 x 480). Once you see the display set the resolution to 800x600 which any display can handle. Re-boot and log in again and change the resolution to something higher. Test different settings. If you set one that is too high and you can't see the screen again don't touch anything as the screen will revert back to the previous setting if you do not confirm.

Hope this helps. If it does don't forget to give me a thumbs up.

My compaq nc6220 laptop wont boot up . it starts up gets by first screen then about 15 seconds after that it resets. also after first screen fan stops. ive tried last known config that works, safe mode etc...

Most likely your operating system is corrupted. There a couple things you can try but you will need a second computer to create a bootable disc, or if your computer has a build in recovery partition you might already have the tools required.
  • Do you have access to a second computer?
  • Do you know how to enter BIOS?
  • Do you know how to burn an image to disc?
Comment back with what you know how to do and don't and I will walk you through it.

My LP130 wont show my computer screen, i think its all hooked up right. Bulb fine.

Activate the external screen connector on your computer. If you are in windows, go to Start - Control Panel - Display and you should see two displays connected to the computer. Set the computer to CLONE the internal display and you should now see the second display on your screen. If this does not work, please tell me you Computer make and model as well as you operating system and I will walk you through the setup for the hot-key that activates your display.

Playstation 3 is on however the tv screen is

Since I don't know if this has worked for you before I can only give you advice. I'll do my very best to help you in whatever way I can.

If it's a new system I need to know how you have it hooked up. I'll start by having you troubleshoot some things:

If you want it hooked up through HDMI connection you'll need to hook up both the composite (Red White & Yellow) cord that came with it; along with the HDMI cord.

Turn your console on and set your TV input to whichever input the composite cable is hooked into.

Assuming you have picture:

Go to your settings and select Display Options. At the next menu, you'll want to switch it from composite to HDMI. Your screen will go blank.

Set your TV to whichever HDMI input you have it hooked to and you should see a display. Confirm if necessary.

If you still have no picutre:

What I would initially do then is make sure the system is off, turn your TV input to the correct video settings for the composite, and when you turn it on, hold your finger on the power button for a few seconds after it's on to set the default picture display.

You should have a picture now. If not, it could be your TV. Try these same steps on another TV.

Please let us know if you're having further issues & Good Luck!

Dell Inspiron8600 display is blank. It begins booting, the screen flashes with the Dell logo then it goes blank. I can see faint images on screen but can't read anything. Can I hook up to an external...

If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

Kodak easyshare 5300 Message: Printhead is not installed correctly. Continue to get message after reinstalling.

More than likely you have a faulty print head. You can go to Kodak online troubleshooting. After you runa a few of their fixes, they will send you a new one if it's under warranty or recall. The did mine, plus manually walked through fixing the software to correct the issue after all that. The unistall doesn't always remove everything, so there are some files that have to be maunally deleted and other "techincal" stuff.

Hello Milligan,
Your problem is the inverter board in the display. Thats the reason why its working with an external display. The external display input is from the video card not from your display. You can get an inverter board for around 30-50$. Be advised that if you are not experienced in electronics better leave this job for a tech.
