Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet

Open Question

Dear sir/madam I have a Packard Bell Maestro 242DX Monitor hooked up to a MacBook running Snow Lepard and I can not get the full screen of the laptop to show on the monitor. Thus for example if open an application I have to move the frame around on the laptop to get it to show on the monitor. Also the menu bar and the dock showing on the laptop will not show on the monitor. Thus when I open an application, for example a word document, and move the whole frame so that it shows on the monitor, the menu bar does not does not show. This means I can not work the application from the monitor. Also the cursor does not does not show on both screens. I have to move the frame off to the side of one screen to get it to show on the other. Finally when I highlight the menu on the monitor, the "auto" option will not highlight. Thus I can highlight Main menu, cancel and source but not auto. The same things happens on the full menu. All items except auto will highlight. Can somebody please help? I rang the support line and spent 15 minutes but got nowhere. Sam Semoff

SOURCE: Monitor not Running(shows only orange light)

Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted. Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.

Hi

Check ASROCK P4i45GV R5.0 User Manual Page 17 - http://download.asrock.com/manual/P4i45GV%20R5.0.pdf

Note: Check Page 11 for the CLRCMOS0 location on the motherboard. From the picture CLRCMOS0 is number 18. You can locate CLRCMOS0 just below the CMOS Cell Battery.

Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord, then use a jumper cap to short the pins on CLRCMOS0 for 3 seconds. Please remember to remove the jumper cap after clearing the CMOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down before you do the clear-CMOS action.

Regards
Mike

Wow, it's about time to dump the Packard Bell. Maybe the Video Card has gone bad in the Packard Bell and if you fix it your old monitor might work.

How do I connect the speakers to a packard bell computer


You need a Packard Bell motherboard for this. look on the side of the monitor in the slot, and you should see 2 dark patches (holes). poke the hooks of the speakers inside these holes then pull down. if they are correctly placed, they will not come out if you pull the speakers away from the monitor. Hope this helps! Max
