Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a belkin adapter which connects my 2 pcs together sharing a mouse, keyboard and monitor. I recently bought an acer slimline 22 inches monitor to replace my old bulky monitor. However when I connect in the same way as before to my new monitor, the monitor does not work i.e. the screen is blank and no power light comes on - so there appears to be a problem; can you help?. Incidentally I made sure there is nothing wrong with the monitor - I tried to connect it to my laptop only (not 2 pcs together) and it seems to work. Your comments would be much appreciated - thanks. Fatima

    I have been away for a few days. However, I am going to try again today - maybe there is a loose connection. I will let you know how I got on.



    Incidentally, if indeed there is a loose connection does it mean I have to buy a new belkin adapter (which comes attached with power cross loop cable; one part needs to be plugged into the pc and the other into the monitor) or can the loose connection be fixed some other way?



    Thanks,

    There is no loose connection as the old monitor is powered up using the belkin router to connect 2 pcs together. This is not the case when the acer TFT monitor is replaced and connected the same way. The resolutions meet the specification of the acer monitor.



    The problem still remains but thanks for trying.

Hi Im Rain.
I may have bad news for you. Its a very bad sign when your keyboard and monitor are not working at the same time. Sounds like the technician was right.
I also think its your motherboard. If you really just like the computer you can invest in another motherboard.

Acer desktop mouse,keyboard not functioning, monitor also not wor


If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too.
If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time.
If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

I have purchased a Belkin N Router & connected per instructions. I have ATT dsl connection. Also bought high speed modem when troubleshooters said I need to do so. Still.........althought all the lights so...


WHEN I BOUGHT MY BELKIN, THE RETAILER SUGGESTED THAT I PURCHASE A BELKIN ROUTER WITH THE SAME QUALITY AS THE ADAPTER
IF YOU HAVE A "BEST" ROUTER, GET A "BEST" ADAPTER
IF YOU HAVE A "GOOD" ROUTER, GET A "BEST" ADAPTER

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.
