Question about Sylvania SF150 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
The computer SHOULD have a display output. In recent years, various types of connectors have come out to transfer the huge amount of color data to the new screens.
First we are beyond RGB. So lets start from VGA (Video Graphics Array) A fifteen pin D-type connector. This connector is either a part of the mother board (integrated) or as an add on card (expansion). The newer digital display use a DVI connector. some displays may have both. The types of interface on the computer motherboard are also varied, go here for a description;
Although the slots are there, there is no telling what will go into them. Plug and play is a misnomer in that the computer must know what you are plugging into the slot and have the software ready for it. This is technically impossible.
Therefore, you must have drivers to aid the motherboard and software to communicate with the new hardware.
The display usually just takes what ever the computer puts out and displays it as best it can. The signal comes from the video card. If it is set up right (via software) then it will work well.
To test if you are getting a good video signal, use another monitor. If you have an output, then the problem rests with your display and not your computer.
I know this was a roundabout, but it was to let you know about the system.
Good luck and don't forget to vote.
