Re: Connect laptop to cpu and use laptop as monitor

Go to "tiger direct" and purchase a usb to usb interconnect cord. the software they supply will install an ansi and unicode driver so you can use two machines with win xp, win me or win 98. xp and me use the unicode driver while win 98 uses the ansi driver.

Computer does not recognize the monitor. what should i do to fix it

First Thing to do is power down your computer. Run a virus quick scan and remove any threats...Before powering up again, unplug your monitor from the CPU...Power up and plug in your monitor, this should reload the drivers. You can then go to your display settings box and select your monitor, as it will be the only one to select...This should solve your problem...

My dell inspiron pc 530 desktop monitor does not come on at all when starting

Check in order:
1 Is the monitor power line connected?
No? Connect it
2 Is the monitor switched on (bezel switch with telltale light)?
No? Find the switch and toggle it.
3 Is the data cable (VGA or whatever) properly connected?
No? Connect it.
4 Does another monitor work on this system?
No? You have bad graphics on your PC. Replace card or PC.

If you answer YES to all those questions, then your monitor is defective. If so your most likely problem is a failed back light. Consider replacing the monitor - the cost of a service call goes a long way to the $100+ you might spend on a replacement.

The CPU is making a beeping noise and the monitor wont display anything while its on

Basically video card is not inserted tightly. If you know how to locate your video card on your PC try to push it down to set it tightly.
