Question about HP f2105 21" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

DVI connection not working

The DVI hookup doesn't display properly, I have to use the standard monitor hookup to see it. When I hookup my monitor using the DVI my screen comes up completely distorted and all yellow. I can't see anything but Id like to use the DVI if it can work. My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT SLi. I'd like to keep the SLi enabled instead of running on just 1 card.
Monitor is HP f2105

Re: DVI connection not working

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

What connections are required

Make sure the monitor works on a friend's PC using the DVI... let's not go backward to VGA when DVI is available on both the PC and monitor. If the monitor works, install the driver and reboot. It should work for you too.

2nd monitor does not work with DVI to VGA converter cable. My video card has VGA and DVi ouputs.

The problem could be in the adapter to the video card. There are different types of DVI connections. If the adapter does not have the proper set of pins then the card will not recognize that a monitor is connected at that port. Monitors themselves have no bearing on whether a single or dual monitor set up will work or not. Digital Visual Interface Follow this link, it may help you determine if the adapter you are using is correct for the graphics card.

Doesn't work? , DETACH the STAND to make it easy to work. The SCREWS to OPEN an LCD MONITOR are usually near the VGA/DVI/HDMI CONNECTORS. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Monitor only works with DVI/VGA adaptor.

if your monitor came with a disk try installing the drivers again you might still have the drivers for the previous monitor you had with your system if not try going to the manufacturers website and getting the drivers and install them

My monitor says cable not connected

If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck

Plug the audio cable into the LIME GREEN port on the computer.

You can onlly use a DVI cable if your Video Card has that kind of connector.

Trust me, you don't need one. Use the D-shaped 15 pin connector.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro

Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.

No display.

Make sure the proper input is selected

1: D-SUB for Blue VGA cable
2: DVI-D for White DVI cable

The option selected should be indicated on the power save screen.

If changing the input select and rebooting the computer have no effect an no video from the computer is ever displayed, then the monitor is in need of repair.
