Your HP notebook PC probably has a VGA (aka HD-15) connector. Check page 16 of this PDF to make sure - connector #2 is the VGA connector.

Your Compaq monitor also has a VGA HD-15 connector, so it should plug directly into your laptop's port after unplugging it from the other PC.

You will still need to plug the Compaq monitor's power cable into a wall outlet for power.

If you are going to share this monitor between your notebook and the other PC, you may want to consider purchasing a Keyboard-Video-Mouse switch (known as a "KVM switch") - there are many different models - you will need one with VGA, and whether you need USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse connections depends on what your other PC's keyboard and mouse are.

Will a hp vp17 monitor work on a compaq presario?


All monitors will work on any pc/mac computer.
The only concern might be how old is the monitor (low resolution) connected to a brand new computer (high resolution). But it usually auto adjust at windows boot up.
Check the VGA connector (blue) or DVI connector (white) for the monitor matching the pc tower

Flickering


Hello,

If the screen of your monitor is flickering, this is indicating that your picture board is about to go bad or already bad, but i would suggest you replace the cable that connect to the monitor before concluding on this, if after replacing the cable, problem still persist, you will need to replace the picture board on the monitor to solve the problem.

Take care.

Can a compaq fs7600 connect to a wireless internet or is it too old?


The monitor is just a display device, it how fast your PC is. I can easily surf the web for simple email and browsing the net with P3 1.GHz machine running XP PRO. You will need WIFI card for the PC.

I have a HP tower and compaq monitor, does this affect the speakers on the monitor? Since I changed the towers out the sound hasn't worked


HP and Compaq are actually now one company. So depending on the age of your tower and the age of the monitor they should be compatible.

First you should check the small speaker icon located in the task bar in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Is there a red circle with a line through it?
First check your connections to the speakers. There are a couple ways to get the audio signal to the speakers so make sure you have a connection that can carry the signal. The primary one is through the Green Audio Out jack on the back of the tower to the Green Audio In jack on the monitor. HDMI cable can also carry a audio signal.

Still no signal?
If not left click the icon and make sure the Mute Box is not checked.

Signal?
If not then right click on the icon. You will be given two choices from a small pop-up dialog box (Win XP and Vista OS), click on Adjust Audio Properties. Click the Advanced Button in the lower right side of the window that opens. Again a small window will open with Speaker Setup choices at the bottom. Go through the list and pick Monitor Mounted Speakers or if Stereo Monitor Stereo Speakers.



If there is a red mark through the icon follow all the steps above.
Remember to reboot your computer after every change.
Additional you may need to go to HP to update your monitor and sound drivers.

In the Adjust Audio Properties, at the top click on the Hardware tab. Now click the Properties button at the bottom. A window will open that should say "This Device Is Working Properly". If not then it's a driver issue. Click on the Driver tab of the same window and click Update Driver button. Sometimes this will work great sometimes not so great and you will need to manually install the drivers.
Let me now if you need any thing clarified or if you are still having trouble after trying the above.
Hope this helps.

Need to swipe-out pc


there's a couple things you can do...

you can contact HP/Compaq and order replacement recovery discs.. visit this link for more info
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=bph07143

you can try running ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com/ on your computer, its pretty easy to install and its really neat. its very different from windows however but it works great. best of all its FREE!

of course you can look filesharing sites for copies of Windows XP or Vista (wink wink), but i can't help you with that since its agains't FixYa's piracy policy and i don't want trouble.

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
