Go to pricewatch.com.....check the appropriate sections. They have pictures. Also, if your computer came with a manual (and if it is equipped properly) it will give you a name...i.e. DVI out. That name equates to a cable you need.....but if your motherboard does not have that "out", then you will have to buy a card. All of that you can not only figure out at pricewatch or the compaq help site but also save a few bucks probably. Hope this helps..Tango.

How do i connect my lcd tv to dell optiplex computor using hdmi to vga cable


Most of these cables will not support signal from your computer to monitor. See notes associated with cable description at: http://www.amazon.com/A-Sonic-HDMI-HD15-Male-Cable/dp/B001OLCHJ6
If the pic of the cable at that website looks like your cable, I don't believe you will be able to make it work. You still might be able to get signal by using your LCD TV remote and change the 'input' or 'source' button until you see a picture. Good luck!

Gateway a computer desktop has power but nothing on screen the computer doesn't have a tower


1) Computer doesn't have a tower? Means it is a 'pancake style' of desktop computer. A flat model.

2) No signal on monitor screen?
Good.
At least we know the monitor is good.

Problem is monitor cable, IF separate cable; or computer.

Computer isn't sending a video signal.
No Signal, Power Saver Mode, etc.

If an older CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), and monitor cable is not detachable; use a known to be working monitor, and monitor cable.

If a separate monitor cable, use a monitor cable from a working computer, for a temporary test unit.
Put it back when deemed monitor cable is the problem.

Logic at this point, would deem something is wrong with the graphics chipset.
Whether mounted directly to motherboard, (Integrated), or a separate graphics adapter card. (Graphics/Video Card)

However, computer could be dirty inside, or have a bad Power Supply.

LED's (lights) light up? Maybe fans spin?
Means nothing.

1) If ALL of the Light Emitting Diodes were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 130 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

Older desktop computer?
Ummm, 35 to 40 Watts.

That is why LED's can light, and maybe fans spin, but no computer.
NOT enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer needs to be CLEAN on the inside. Inside of Power Supply too, as well as possible.

Proper method to do this procedure, post back in Comment if you need guidance.

Also remove ALL Ram Memory modules, and clean gold plated contact pins on bottom; with pencil eraser.
Reinstall. Make SURE they are seated in tight, and Lock 'ears' are locked in place.

Post in a Comment, as to the model number.
Example, DX4300-05. Should be on back of computer.

Regards,

I NEED TO HELP WIRING MY COMPAQ HOME COMPUTER


Set all items up ready to be installed Plug in your mouse and keyboard into the back of the tower. If u are using the old style connectors these have pins and will also be colour coordinated so you know where to plug into tower. They will have a notch inside so plug in carefully so not to break pins. If they are USB connections they will be square at the end and u will see where these plug in at the back of the tower these do not have colour coordination as u can plug in anywhere. Next your VGA cable, this is the cable that looks the same both ends with 15 pins in it. One end goes into your monitor and the other into the back of the tower these are shaped so they only fit in one way, again caution that you do not force in as you could bend the pins. Next ensure u have the power leads into the tower and the monitor, these are the cables with a plug on one end and a female 3 hole socket at the other, u will see where these plug into both devices. Next plug into wall ensuring socket is off first Then switch on Switch on your tower....monitor should come on by itself, if not hit the power button on your monitor Voila ...done

How to use rca entertainment series 32 inch as pc monitor


Assuming that your RCA 32 inch tv has an HDMI or VGA input, all you need is the proper cable to connect the two units. If your computer has a VGA out (blue female connector) and so does your TV, you would need a male to male VGA cable. If your computer has a DVI out (white connector), you would need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable. The combinations can me played around with depending on what connectors are on the back of the TV and what you have as an output for your PC.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Got a used Compaq Pressario SR1303wm and need to set up correctly


Monitor into Small Blue connector at back.
If Mouse and keyboard are Round and not Rectangular in shape then that's a PS/2 Mouse and keyboard. Purple goes into Keyboard slot at back. Green goes into Mouse at back. Watch for the design as the pins inside each one need to be inserted accordingly.
If they ARE rectangular then that is a USB connection. On the back connect the keyborad and mouse to the top two. Again, only going to insert one ways.

Desktop monitor


Hi

Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.
