MONITOR IS BLACK, POWER LITE IS ON, I CAN HEAR COMPUTER SOUNDS


By computer sounds do you mean the sound of fans and hard drives spinning? If there are no loud distinct beeps indicating a startup error (See Post Beep Codes), then I would check the following.

I'm assuming you mean the power light on the monitor is on. If that is the case then it is one of two things.


  1. The monitor is not set to the correct input source.
    • Make sure you go through the monitors menu and select the input. Example
  2. The video cable to the monitor has a bad connection.
    • Make sure the cable is connected properly
    • If repositioning the cable differently restores the image than the cable is most likely failing. Try replacing the cable with known good one.
    • If the cable is good it could be a problem in the jack on the monitor or the computer.
      To repair this would require disassembling the monitor or computer and replacing the jack.
      However, most computers and monitor have more than one type video input/output. Try the other input/output jacks. Example

No sound from speakers


You don't mention the sound card(s) in the PC nor the method of connecting to the monitor. Some video cards have HDMI connections for audio and video out to a monitor and will not allow any other audio outputs to work. Regardless of sound source interface, check to be sure that the audio source is the one that is NOT part of your video card and is NOT set to output DIGITAL audio signals.
Once this is done, select the the "add-on" or "expansion slot" sound card (if it is the type that plus into a slot on your motherboard) or the "built-in to the motherboard" type (if the jacks are soldered directly to the motherboard) as the DEFAULT or ENABLED. Set to ANALOG output - NOT digital if a choice is offered. Connect the speakers. This should be via cable terminated with a stereo mini jack - NOT a special digital optical or coaxial cable / connector. Most modern PCs will have several mini-stereo jacks from which to choose - nearly all use the GREEN ringed jack for the FRONT (or main) left & right stereo speakers. Regardless, if yours has GREEN jack, you should use it - if none have a color code, look for markings that indicate either "speakers" ,"output", "front" or "L & R". If there are no indications, check your manual. Set your volume level on the lower side, play an audio source and adjust speaker volume and / or audio mixer settings in the system tray as needed.
Only one sound card will work in a PC. Make sure that all connections are made to the ENABLED card, otherwise no sounds will be heard. Digital output is primarily targeted to facilitate connections to external amplifier and speaker system - most often like those found in a Home Theater PC setting - or a monitor / TV connected by an HDMI cable.
I hope this helps & good luck!

You need to connect both monitors to a computer. Monitors do not daisy-chain (in general). The exception are some SCART-enabled monitors.

What is your source (desktop)? What is the make/model of your new monitor? Please add a comment with the video outputs/inputs for your source and second monitor.

Many newer desktops have two or three outputs. (Some video cards have display port outputs which with active adapters can support 2 monitors each.)

If your computer has two or more outputs and your new monitor has an input compatible with the extra output, get the appropriate DVI, DVI-HDMI or HDMI cable for your new monitor. See the next section if both monitors have VGA input.

If you have a desktop with only one video output, you may be able add a video card to support two monitors. (Depending on your computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply to support a video card.) Then get the appropriate adapter or cables to add the second monitor. (Note: if both of your monitors have only VGA inputs, check the specs for video cards carefully. Not all modern cards support analog outputs on their DVI, HDMI or Display Port connections. These digital outputs would require a digital to analog converter to give the VGA out.) However, if one of your monitors will accept DVI digital signals and the other VGA, add a card with one of each of these connections and a DVI cable to match. (This is an if needed extra; many monitors still ship with only a VGA cable.)

Then turn off your computer, open it and add the video card. Install the drivers with only one monitor attached. Then power down the computer and connect the second monitor. Turn on both monitors before turning on the computer again. Most of the time, the second monitor should be recognized (by Windows) and the appropriate refresh rate and resolution chosen. If not, you may need to enter the Display settings to set the monitor up.

I have seen some computers/video cards where only one output is initially enabled. You may have to go into the device settings to enable it. (Laptops often need their external video ports enabled in the BIOS.) Bad video ports/cards/cables do happen so RMA if needed.

The USB video adapter, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 , can be added to a desktop to give a second VGA output but it isn't the best solution. USB bandwidth limits are significantly lower than those for a PCIe x16 slot or an old AGP slot.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your system if you want more assistance with this problem.

(who has done dual monitors with older and newer computers. My old Pentium 4 with a Radeon x1350 video card was fine for driving a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor (using a DVI to HDMI cable). My second generation i5 and P8Z68 motherboard system is also fine using the on-CPU video graphics for those same monitors. A video card would improve gaming but isn't required.)

Well, a driver is not required to use the internal speakers! You just have to plug the OUTPUT from your computer sound card into the input jack on the rear of the monitor. For this, of course, you will require a suitable lead (or cable) with stereo jack plugs on each end. The sound output from the speakers is only 1 watt so don't expect wonders..but it does have a headphone socket so it would make a convenient point for you to plug your headphones to, but of course, you've got to feed the output from your sound card to the monitor first.

Make sure it is plugged into the right connector on the back of the pc. If you have intergrated video and a later installed video card make sure it is plugged into the right one. Does the monitor say "no signal"? Have you tried a different monitor to verify that the connection works. Also try a different cable, as the cable could be bad.

My monitor says "no input signal" every time I put it on. I have checked all the wires and connections and they seem fine. Any suggestions?


Starting from the monitor and going to the video connection to your computer, make sure everything is connected and undamaged. If your video card has more than one output, try switching the cable to the other output. If neither is working, and the monitor works fine from a different computer, then its the video card, otherwise its the monitor. But again, before dropping any money on a new monitor, try a different cable, and try switching the cable to the second output if there is one. A video card is definitely cheaper than a monitor.

Dear acaldwell,

Your monitor uses a HD-15 type cable. There should be 3 staggered rows of (5) pins each. (Some cables are missing the 4th pin in the second row, this is normal). If you used enough force, it's
possible that a pin was bent or even broken. I suggest looking at the connector (if not both) and make sure all the pins are intact and perfectly straight! If pins are badly bent or missing you should replace the cable. Next, check to see that all the monitor and power cables are fully seated, and of course, the wall outlet you are using has power. Do you know if your computer has a video card installed? If it does you may be trying the wrong monitor jack. (you'll know if there's a video card because toward the bottom of the computer, in the rear, there will be a 'horizontal' monitor jack as well as the 'vertical' jack near the serial port - make sure you're using the horizontal one if this is the case).
If this has not solved the problem, there's a good chance the monitor is no longer working and should be looked at professionally or replaced. Nowadays you can buy a very nice LCD Flat-Screen monitor for under $150, and you will be able to use it with your 'next' computer as well. Good Luck!

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

Connecting computer to tv


If your computer has an S-video jack, (and if your tv has one)then all you need is the cable. If not, you need some sort of pc to tv converter, which run a wide range of prices, depending on if your tv has s video or not.
