Question about Scanport 17" LCD Monitor

LCD Monitor (Model Number M17FBA) Signal Out of Range

My mother is trying to get our monitor to work with an older Compaq Presario with Windows XP. She keeps seeing the desktop flash for just a second, and then it says SIGNAL OUT OF REACH. Can anyone tell me, short of buying a whole new monitor, which we cannot do right now, how I might get this monitor to work with this computer? She has amde sure the cord is properly attached and everything. We have used this monitor successfully in the last 6 months, and have never had a problem with it.

Hi
Start the computer in SAFE mode. F8 before Windows starts. Once in SAFE mode change the screen resolution to 600 X 480. Do this by right clicking anywhere on the desktop. Once done then reboot into normal mode.

I get a "input signal out of range" with windows nt. Is it my frequency or resolution settings and can I correct it?


well it is maybe the video cards fault. But you could try installing windows xp or newer or older video drivers

Over Range Signal


OK, you need to boot up in safe Mode, then change your screen resolution, to say 800x600, or 1024x768, this will then allow your monitor to operate, IF this doesn't work, then you will have to swap out, the Monitor and VGA card to find out which one is faulty.

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 lcd monitor benq 751which has inbuilt sound system, but after reinstallation of xp, the sound is not produced at all.


You need to go to the website for your computer, then click on Support. In Support type your computer name, Model Name, and Model Number.

(Example:
Lets say I have a Compaq Presario SR1110NX.
I would go to HP.com/Support.
Hp bought out Compaq.
I would type the computer name,
Compaq.
Model Name,
Presario.
Model Number,
SR1110NX

You will find this information on the back of a desktop computer, next to the Windows Product Key, holographic sticker.

OR,
it may be up on the side, {Top}, of the computer case)

When you get to the page, click on Software and Driver Downloads.

In Software and Driver Downloads, look for the Audio file. If there is more than one listed, click on the newest version. Look at the date.
There should be a small window that will pop-up, and you click on an empty circle to the left of -> Save. Then go below, and click on Save.

If you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this audio download will go to your desktop screen. Close all windows, then Double-click on that file icon. Follow the instructions in the Installation Wizard.

Input signal out of range


Did you mean "out of range". Try reloading video drivers. If that doesn't work, perhaps screen cannot use that resolution.

Mymonitor is black and the on button from the monitor is green and is flashing


i havent seen this question asked, and believe me i have searched. i have compaq presario, windows xp media edition 2005, 64 amd processor, model # SR2017CL, with HP 1703 17" monitor. Prob-put computer in hibernate mode other evening, without turning it off. when i woke up, screen had diagonal lines going across it. i rebooted, well manually restarted, since comp would not respond.
Message comes up white with black writing, essentially, prob with active desktop, restore or turn off. i tried to turn off and screen went back to diag. lines. looks like the horizontal hold of a tv screen is asque. tried adjusting monitor to no avail.
tried a few more times, was fine for a few mins then went to same thing. now when i turn monitor on it blinks red, blue, and so on.
just whole screen that color. so i am at the point where i dont
know if its the comp or the monitor. (i am quite a newby)
ty for any help you can give
