Sure Teng, no problem!

I believe what you have is a DVI connection on your LCD monitor.

Looks like this,

What you need is an adapter.

Make SURE you get the adapter that has the DVI socket holes, and the VGA pins!
They make an adapter that is the other way around.

[I bought one at Radio Shack a while back. $14.99 since I couldn't wait. Compare the price of the above one. Even with tax, and shipping it would be way cheaper. There are a Lot of online stores that sell these adapters]

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

I cannot get my Dell E173FP out of Powersave. I switch on the computer, but nothing appears on the monitor screen. I press the menu select on the front of the monitor and it says "In Power Save mode,...


Hi Ron,

It sounds like the monitor is not receiving a signal, or that the signal is one that it can't display (wrong screen resolution etc).

Can you make sure the monitor cable is securely plugged in at the monitor and the PC?

Do you have another PC you can try with that monitor?

Do you have an spare monitor cable you can try?

Is this the only monitor connected to your PC or are you using is as a second monitor?

I'm happy to try and help you solve this.

Kind regards,

Chris

When plug in my SyncMater 910v monitor, there is only colorful line in it, no image; when I unplug it, there is "Check Signal Cable" on it. What sould I do to fix it?


Try to connect the monitor to a different desktop/laptop, to see if the monitor works at all.

However, it may be cheaper to REPLACE the monitor, with a new LCD monitor, than it would be to take the monitor to a TV/video repair shop, to try to REPAIR it.

Computer in safe mode and monitor will go to sleep mode....help what can I do...my husband tried everything....


First, Shotdown your computer from start ,
then remove your computer power, remove VGA cable, remove VGA power cable. then
1- connect vga cable to computer.
2- connect VGA power but do not power on.
3- connect computer power on but do not turn on
4- turn on computer first and 3 second turn on your lcd.

if NOT try powering on computer then Monitor then power the computer then monitor.
IF NONE worked, YOU may have LCD that need drivers from manufacturing, some newer models required that, Specially for vista.You may use older Monitor to get drivers to computer and extracted, then you may connected, you will have solved the problem.
Goodluck

Tv connections


Depending on the model of video card you have, it would be either the VGA or the DVI connector. Many new cards have one of each or 2 of either VGA or DVI.

Many newer LCD monitors can to plugged into either connector, as they have connections for both. There are adapters that will allow VGA to be plugged into DVI as well.

If you computer does not have multiple outputs, you can only plug in one monitor, however.

No 9 pin video socket


Most video cards use a 15 pin VGA connector.

There is also a 9 pin VGA connector, but they are a lot less common - I'm guessing this is what you have.

Is the video cable hard-wired into your monitor or is it connected via a plug? If it's a plug, is that a 15 or 9 pin? If it's a 15 pin, then all you need to do is buy a new 15-15pin VGA cable.

If it's hard-wired, you'll need to buy some sort of adapter. These are available and don't cost much either, but you might need to try a more specialist computer store to find one.

Hope this helps!
