One is power one is standard vga and one is a dvi cable, the only time you would need the dvi is for a higher quality of picture. if you do not need the higher quality (ex. you don't watch hd movies, you don't play games with awesome quality gfx, you don't do professional gfx.) you only need the standard vga (the one your used to). [note: you might need to upgrade your video card to use the dvi cable]

THE MONITOR KEEPS TURNING ITSLEF ON AND OFF EVERY 2-3 SECONDS ALL THE TIME


is it just your monitor and not the computer turning on and off

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions EIDE SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to have a finishing point to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as faulty fan and the fans electrical lead can cause you problems

Dell inspiron 531s will not power on. It worked just fine and after I moved to a different home, it does not power on at all. I have tried different electrical outlets


Assuming you have tested those outlets with another electrical device (such as a lamp) and they are getting power, the problem might be the power cord, or static inside the computer. Try this:

1. Remove the power cord completely from the computer.
2. Press and hold down the power switch for 10-20 seconds. This drains any residual static in the circuitry.
3. Re-attach the power cord. Make sure it is seated firmly on the end that attaches to the back of the computer.
4. Plug it into a known good outlet and try to power on.

If that does not work, try replacing the power cord with a known good one. If it still doesn't power up, the problem could be either the power on button, or the power supply itself. Either could have been damaged during your move. You could open the computer case and see if anything appear loose, or any wires are obviously detached.

Power supply modules do ocassionally go bad on computers. They are not that expensive to buy, and not that hard to replace, though it might be a challenge for a novice. Before you buy and/or replace the power module, be sure to have the machine tested at a local store (Radio Shack, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc) to make sure that is really the problem. Many stores will perform a power supply test for a nominal fee.

My screen is going black when I turn it on.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

Acer x213W - setting the resolution


Sorry about the delay. I also just purchased an Acer x213w and had some trouble setting up my computer in order to achieve the optimum resolution of 1680x1050.

I'm using an HP Pavilion m7170n, so it's a bit old and thus could not support this widescreen resolution. However, my computer comes with an ATI Radeon graphics card and, upon contacting HP Support, was allowed to download ATI's "Catalyst Control Centre". After installation, these drivers added the option of selecting a screen resolution of 1680x1050 from Desktop properties.

So this is my solution to you: simply google your graphics card along with 1680x1050 driver and hopefully you'll be able to download a driver update which does the same for you as it did for me.
