We have a samsung syncmaster p2050 monitor and a dell tower but the screen does not stay on to enable you do anything pls help to identify if its a monitor problem or a dell problem?

At a guess it's probably a monitor problem but the only way to be sure is to test the theory.

You need to beg, borrow or steel another monitor and connect it to your tower, if it works Ok, your monitor has the problem, if not, its your graphics card.

Or, if you can't borrow a monitor, ask if you can connect yours to a friends tower or even a laptop with a vga port on the back (blue 23 pins).

With the laptop, you should be able to switch between the laptop monitor and the ancillary monitor by pressing the "Fn" and another key (look amongst your "F" keys and your Number keys, there should be a picture of a screen). Don't forget to switch back by pressing the same keys again.

Since you don't clarify what exactly your monitor model is, I can't tell you that it has (or not) sound capabilities. Either clarify me the exact model or make this simple test: check at the back of the monitor if a small green hole (connector) 3,5mm diameter exists. If you can locate it your monitor has the audio capabilities and you have to connect this connector with the same green connector at the back panel of the computer case using a cable like this:
In case you don't have a cable like this you can find at any computer or electronic shop, or buy on line for about 2$ to 7$, depending on how long the cable is.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Hi, I have an Acer AL1715s monitor and the VGA cable is cut about 5 cm from the backside. The monitor has no VGA input on the back but is connected inside with a 13 pin connector. I have to make a new...

you have a rgb connection or a dvi connection.

do not engineer your own version of a vga/dvi cable.

just go and buy a new cable, which should be cheap

here is a service guide for this monitor

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Display my laptop on my tv

You can't connect a standard TV to a computer using a VGA cable. If you have it, use the composite (yellow) RCA jack or S-Video from your laptop. As for turning off a laptop monitor, look on the function keys for LCD/CRT or icon for monitor (typically 3, 5, 7, or 8) hold down FN key and press the correct function key.

Monitor won't stay on

Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.

Connecting an external monitor will not mess up the laptop.

Most laptops have a standard 15 pin VGA external monitor connector. You need to connect the cable from the monitor to the laptop. Booth the Dell and power up the monitor. Soon as the laptop has gone through its routine of booting, press Fn + F8 or F4 (or whatever it is that needs to be pressed to activate the external monitor. It is normally an F key with the small monitor icon or the words CRT/LCD).

Pressing on the two (2) F keys would cycle on laptop display, laptop display + external, external only.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
