Question about AOC 19LVWK LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I was tring to Connect Two Computers to One Monitor, but i didnt get it, does someone know how to do so? I bought a KVM switch, USB to use between a new Acer running Win XP and old Dell with Win 98. Could not get the Dell to show up on the monitor, although the correct light shows up on the KVM and the USB mouse lights up when the computer boots. -- Read a few minutes ago about a source switch and found that my flat panel has a menu item to switch from analog to digital input. Could that be the problem? The Dell takes only VGA, Acer takes either DVI or VGA. -- Put the switch & all attached cables back in the box and want an answer before going thru the hassel of changing all the wires.

I guessing that since **-one responded you've given up and returned the whole mess but what the hey.

A lot depends on the KVM you're using. There are some high end units that will match different sources to the monitor but most work best with matched input and output. Unless you's specifically states that it will convert analog to digital it won't. So if it's an analog KVM then both the computer video boards need to have an analog VGA jack and the monitor does too. If the KVM is ditital you need to have all the systems and monitor digital. Savi? The Monitor may support boath analog and digital input but NOT at the same time. You can't plug in two computers at the same time, that's what the KVM is for.

The bottom line here is that you typically need to run the least common de**minator to use a KVM. Also, if the computers have different frequency (resolution) out put and you hit the KVM switch then the monitor will freak out. Some monitors will auto-switch between frequencies but most don't (especially the cheapies).

There are adapters that will down convert digital to analog. If you're dead set on using the KVM with that old Dell then you may need to plug the down converter into the Acer Video Board but you'll loose the high resolution and sharp picture from the digital video. If it was me and I had to use the KVM, I'd get a cheap digital video card for the Dell or just run two monitors.

I run 5 systems on my desk, Three of which are older servers with analog video. They share an analog KVM with video and keyboard on the wall. The other two systems are current generation and share a KVM and 27" flat panel center desk. I also have a laptop that hangs on the other wall with a laser blue tooth keyboard on the other side of my desk. Now if my wife would only let me turn part of her craft studio into a server room.....

Turning itself off


Well,the only reason it wil do so is a Loose conection in its power circuit.
You would not be able to Fix the Internal circuit.
Howver you can doublecheck the External connections.
By tring to connect them Securely.
by replacing the Power cord connecting the Monitor to the Socket.
If there are any surge protectors or UPS in the circuit then Remove them and connect them directly.

Gateway fpd1960 monitor not working


Sears can fix it about $80 an hour. or you can try the manufacturer of the monitor to see if they can fix it....shipping and handling would cost about the same as taking it to sears repair. would advise tring to fix it your self....take it to a professional.

Check the memory - I'm willing to bet it's the memory and not the monitor.  Make sure the memory is compatiable with the memory that's already in there.
