New LCD ACER 17

I bought a new Acer 17 " Flat monitor to use with a 5 year old Dell Dimension 8250 Intel Pentium 4 Processor and when I hook it up all I get is a blank screen. I have a 64MB GeForce4 MX Graphics Card with TV-Out...I was told it should work if I have the same blue VGA video cable and I did but nothing comes up on the screen. I can hear Windows XP trying to open up on the speakers bu the screen doesn't show anything except white? What is my problem?

    I tried your suggestion but it didn't help.....Not your fault because I had my computer tech at work look at it and the monitor was not working. He tried it on 3 different computers and it only showed a blank screen. Thanks a million for your help..I am returning the monitor and think I'll just invest in a Dell monitor and be done with it. Then when the time comes for a new computer I'll have a monitor. Thanks and Happy new year!

It sounds like it is a settings issue in Windows, you should be able to fix it by following this order:
Go to your Start Menu>Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced

Click on: "GEForce Go XXXX" and on nView Display Mode change from Single Display to either "Clone" or "Dualview"

Than click apply and that should fix your problem.

If that doesn't work, than download the Acer Driver with the for Windows XP if your monitor is certified for vista.

This is a common issue with vista,
Hope this helps!

The motherboard chipset of the Dell Dimension 2300 Desktop PC, will not support a processor with an 800MHz Front Side Bus frequency rate.

Only Intel Pentium 4's that use a Socket 478, 1.75 Volts, and a maximum of a 400MHz FSB.

The Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz processor has an 800MHz FSB, (As you have already stated), and uses 1.475 to 1.55 Volts.

The motherboard chipset for that Dell Dimension 2300, is an Intel 845GL.

This list on Wikipedia, shows you parameters the Intel 845GL chipset supports,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

Not a good outcome, sorry. Just stating the facts.

Hardware upgrade required for autocad 2009


Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Processor


First, what kind of upgrade do you expect to do? Many motherboards will not accept a different processor. That being said, you can use a small flat tipped screwdriver between the heat sink and processor. There isn't much room, but very gentle prying all around should do it. You may heat it up a bit with a blow dryer to soften the heat sink compound that hardens with age. You can't harm it with the temperature of the air from a hair dryer.

No power to monitor


4 years is a good life for a monitor, so i agree you can stick to Dell since its already proven itself... :) - As you mentioned, this monitor is not currently being sold from Dell, I would suggest an upgrade to a 19" - http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=320-5629 or a 23" one http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Displays/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-7339 ... if i were you, i would choose a 23", but for a higher pricing :) (Answered this earlier for someone else too i suppose!)

New acer 19 " moniter plug in will not turn on ?


Hi,
Try other outlet, check the power cord if it contacted the monitor. If nothing happened, maybe it's factory defect, since it still under warranty, you can still change it.
Thanks
