Hello soltaino, your board (K7VT2), did not come with a video card. (New). If you have a video card in your PC it was added. I'll need to know the name of the card to advise you regarding a cable to connect to the monitor. My guess is it's like the pictures listed below.
The Asrock does have an AGP 4x video slot. If your board has a video card installed it's connector would connect to a standard VGA connector at both the monitor & at the video card.
Whick looks like this.

The picture above shows a female VGA port, (like on a monitor).

b9662ed.jpg See the bue cable. That's a standard SVGA cable connector.
If you can not connect to the PC you need a new video card, not a new monitor. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3667003&CatId=876
Suggest this card. It has both VGA & DVI connectores.

Best Regards!

What cables would I need to set up a second monitor & set up my TV as a second monitor as well I have a BENQ 2201


First you will need to determine if your computer is capable of running multiple monitors. Some computers will have two video ports on the back of the video card allowing two monitors to be connected while some cards will have a Y cable that allows two connections.
Second, you will need to determine the type of connection that your TV will accept. Most TVs that I have dealt with will at least have a VGA port.

I attach my monitor and turn the machine on and I get a black screen. When I pull the monitor cable out of from the monitor connection on the motherboard I get a color display on the monitor. What is...


When you disconnect the monitor cable, the display you see is from the monitor itself. It's telling you that the monitor has power and is working, but that you don't have the cable connected to your computer. So the trouble is in your computer, which isn't sending anything to the monitor.

Your computer may not be starting up when you turn on the power. This is pretty common, and may be due to a bad power supply or system board. Or something may be wrong on one of the devices connected to the motherboard (one of the drives or a card plugged in to an expansion slot). You'll need to figure out what is keeping the computer from starting. The easiest way is to unplug all devices from the motherboard except for the power supply and try starting the computer. If the computer starts up you'll know that one of those parts you disconnected is at fault.

Another possibility is that the video card (integrated video on the motherboard in most computers, or a separate card) isn't working. The computer may be starting up and getting in to Windows, but you just never get any video to the monitor. If you are hearing all the sounds of a normal startup (disk drive activity and then finally whatever startup sound your Windows makes), then you need a new video card. If the board has integrated video you just need to install a new plug-in video card of whatever type fits the available slot on the board.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

All this video card and monitor business sounds fairly complicated although, if it's all running right, it's no big deal. Only when something goes wrong in the process do you need to get involved.
So what can go wrong? Here's a short list:
  • Your cables might be disconnected. If the cable from the video card to your monitor isn't firmly connected, all sorts of strange images can show up onscreen. Or, sometimes, absolutely nothing at all shows up. Cable problems are like that. So if you have a video problem, you should always check your connections, including the power cable. And while you're at it, make sure that you don't have any bent pins on your cable plugs.
  • Your monitor might need adjusting. Most monitors have the same type of picture controls as your TV set—contrast, brightness, and even vertical and horizontal hold on some models. Some monitors let you adjust the size and position of the display image itself. If your display doesn't look right, adjust it.
    tip
    tip_icon.gif To keep your monitor in tip-top shape, avoid dusty areas and strong magnetic fields. You should also use a soft, static-free cloth (or special "screen cleaner" wet pads) to clean your monitor screen at least once a week.


  • You might have a bad monitor/card combination. Believe it or not, some newer video cards don't work with some older monitors. In particular, you can't use a higher-resolution card with a lower-resolution monitor. Check with your dealer to make sure that you have the right monitor/card combination.
  • Your video card might be inserted improperly. The video card is just like any other expansion card in your computer. If the video card isn't seated in its slot properly, it won't work right.
  • Your video card might be set up incorrectly. Some video cards use either separate software programs or switches on the card itself to adapt to a particular monitor and system. If the card's switches are set wrong, the display might not work at all. Check your card's switch settings against those recommended in the card's documentation.
  • Your drivers might be set up incorrectly. If you've loaded the wrong video driver for your video card, you could get gibberish on your screen. If Windows doesn't recognize your video card, it will run a generic video driver—which will display the lowest possible resolution. It's also possible that Windows will recognize the wrong video card, mistaking your card for another card and causing all sorts of havoc. As is the case when installing any new device, you should always double-check your driver setup.
  • You might need a new video driver. Check with the manufacturer of your video card to make sure that you have the latest version of their video driver. Older drivers might not work with newer versions of Windows.
  • Your monitor might be on the fritz. If your TV can go on the fritz, your PC monitor can go on the fritz, too. If you get lots of lines onscreen, or smoke out the back of the monitor, or if nothing at all happens, suspect the worst.
  • Your video card might be bad. Enough said.thats all for now Good luck.

You shoould try a different video cable. If this does not work, you should make sure that the video card that you are installing to check are compatible with the system.

Dell dimension monitor output broke away from motherboard and now i get no output to monitor to "wake it up", nevermind being able to see anything on it. As soon as i unplug the monitor cable from the pin...


Depending on how much it has broke away, you may be able to resolder it back on, or find someone who can. Other than that it will be a new board, I suspect.

It seems at least a few connections are OK, so probably worth a try, before scrapping it.
