    I just got the monitor, don't have any software or anything that came with it. It'll turn on, but I can't get the screen to widen or adjust.

    Plugged in a USB cable, and it didn't read on the computer as anything, but I dunno if it's supposed to or not.

    The speakers don't work, nor do the buttons. Do I need a driver, or do I need some software, or is the monitor only supported by certain video cards?

This monitor came with a computer I bought years ago.

To get the USB working, you need to run a USB line from your computer to the back of the monitor. There are two connection types provided. The line provided to us when we bought the system was the more square-shaped connection on one end.

To get the sound working, you'll need to run up to two more lines.
1 stereo line with headphone-style jacks on both ends. Connect one end to the sound output jack on the back of the computer (usually light green), and the other to the RED input jack on the back of the monitor.
1 mono line with microphone-style jacks on both ends. Connect one end to the sound input jack on the back of the computer and the other to the BLUE output jack on the back of the monitor.
after that there's only the problem of amplification. On my monitor, even with the system sounds turned up to max, the output of the speakers is pretty low.

Unfortunately I no longer have a proper driver to run the front-pannel buttons (which is where I need help). there aren't any knobs on the exterior to control the width or height of the image. I believe you need the driver to access those commands. Thanks a lot Com-**** for all your proprietary B.S.

I hope this helps you.

    Yes, the monitor turns on and has limited functionality.



    The only way to view a proper image on it is to leave the desktop resolution @ 800x600. Otherwise, the screen is cut off on one side or the other, or doesn't use the entire screen area. Of course, that low of a resolution doesn't give much useable area to view web pages :(



    I've tried different driver packages, but the usb and front-pannel drivers never seem to work in XP SP3. So no front-pannel button functionality, which means no screen adjustments other than contrast and brightness.

Do you mean you can get it to turn on?

    Do the buttons on the front function or do you need help with getting them setup?

You don't really update the drivers for your monitor. If you want to update your video drivers. I'm guessing because it's a Compaq Presario PC that it uses Integrated Radeon graphics acceleration so to update those drivers go here. Once there you will need to select Integrated Motherboard Graphics in the first block. From there on I will need to know the exact model number of the Compaq PC to proceed.

Powers up screen is black, will work on external moniter


atomikhound, May need to find correct drivers for this unit. Try search at HP website using the unit's product number on rear of the monitor. What is date of manufacture on this unit? It seems that this monitor only works with a Presario 4800 series desktop computer for which it was custom designed for. The article I read at "Epinions.com" said it should be used as a boat anchor if you can't get a copy of original 48xx system restore disks that have the special "drivers" needed for it. Good luck. 12fixlouie

COMPAQ PRESARIO FX700


I'm having problems locating a manual. Compaq doesn't seem to support the model anymore. Reading a review online, It almost looks like Compaq had an Application control this instead of practical buttons on the front. Here's the review I read that talked about it -> http://www0.epinions.com/content_28050886276
Hope this helps a bit! Sorry I don't have much else, I've been digging for a few days now to find more.

CRT Monitor-Compaq presario VM700


Hi Snandy, I absolutely despise monitor and computer sleep or hibernation modes. Before I started routinely disabling this on all the computers I supported my users were always having problems no matter how computer literate they were. I know this sounds simplistic and you may have already done it but have you just unplugged the monitor? If that doesn?t work maybe the PC itself has gone to sleep as well. Try moving the mouse, hitting a keyboard key. If that doesn?t work try pushing the power button on the computer to turn it on. If all else fails pull the power plug on the computer itself, plug back in and it should start up. I would suggest disabling all of this via Windows Power settings in the control panel. Let us know if you have any other questions and again please don?t forget to rate the post.
