My old del monitor all of sudden would stay on for 5 seconds then shut off. I got a new Acer P205H monitor and it says 'no signal'. I have a Dell Dimension 8300. Is it the monitor or the PC? Thanks for the help...

Sounds like a video card issue. sometimes they actually work loose if the one screw has been removed. Or it could be a cabling issue. If you or someone else has added a video card, then there are 2 places to plug the cable in the back of the tower, and one may not be active. So many possibilities:)

Cannot view some webpages with acer p205h on ubuntu


This is unlikely to be a monitor issue, more likely a browser issue.
Please ensure you have the latest version of Ubuntu, Firefox and/or Google Chrome.
If this does not solve it, let us know which web pages you're having trouble with so we can take a look.

Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

Depending upon the video port/s you have on the graphics card, you need to connector one video cable, either the DVI or the 15pin DSub to the monitor.

Your monitor is going into power saving mode. When it receives no video signal from the computer, it will stay powered for a few seconds before giving up and presuming the PC is off hence why it stays green for a while, then goes orange.

The problem is with your PC not the monitor(s)

No Signal


Not all monitors can display the same resolutions. You may have has the Dell monitor set at something the Acer can not handle. Try rebooting and if you can see the Dell startup screen press F8 as soon as it disappears. This will give you the Windows Startup Options menu, which is text and should display on any monitor. Then select VGA MODE, which is the lowest common denominator for graphics. You should be able to see the Windows display at a much lower resolution (ie, larger fonts and icons) than usual until you can reset your graphics properties to work with the new monitor.

I hooked up my new acer p191w to my dell laptop 1525.HELP!


Not sure what the problem is, but I would suggest pressing the Fn+F5? There is a function key that toggles from dual screen, just the laptop screen or just the monitor. Hope that helps..

G'luck
