Hmmm..using Vista by chance? some of the older monitor drivers are NOT included with the Vista driver sets. And, looks like it's only xp compliant.

Bought HP Compaq monitor with desktop pc and hooked the monitor with old computer and message dispalys input not support on the screen


This means that the Operation System is not equipped with the appropriate drivers for displaying any images on the monitor. You will need to find either a different monitor, or upgrade the video card for the computer.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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

I have a compaq presario s3040se desktop the monitor quit


Try turning on the monitor before the Compaq system box, if Win is doing what it should, it will 'find' a 'new device' and reinstall the drivers for it. It may not look right but you can change the resolution after it boots up.

Just says going to sleep


I will assume that you have already try this monitor with other PC nad also try new VGA cable but still getting the same result. Then the problem will be inside the monitor which you will have to open it up and inspect the inside for failed components. Most common failure in the monitors are capacitors in the power supply section, see some pictures here as a guide to what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Someone gave me this monitor but without a manual. How do I make the speakers work and what are the three buttons on the front for?


One can usually identify the purpose of front panel buttons just by trying to use them. However, you may need to download a driver specific to this piece of hardware in order to make it fully functional. Here's a link.

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/5017/get31112.html

As for the speakers not working, there are several possible explanations for this. For example, installing the driver may bring them online. More likely though you need to make sure there's an audio cable connected to the back of the monitor and plugged into the appropriate audio port on the back of your computer. Good luck.

Won't turn on... keeps "going to sleep"


Try another monitor on the computer, if it works properly then you know that the original monitor is the issue.

If the 2nd monitor gives you the same issue then you know its a problem with the computer. At that point, unseat and reseat the memory. Try another power supply. If the monitor still shows sleep mode then the motherboard in the computer is bad.

No speaker hook up on new moniter


If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)

Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.
