There should be a usb cable to link the monitor to a usb port on your laptop. Once the cable is connected, the port should work.

    @postexodus - Thanks for the tip, but I have already done that, and the pc does not recognise that there is anything plugged into the USB port :-(

    I would suggest trying other usb ports if there are others. If you have already done that as well, I would see if the monitor's usb port works with other computers if you have any others available. Has the monitor's port worked in the past? Also, are you on a Mac or a PC?

What is the use of rear usb ports


Hi,
The USB ports on the monitor will work only if you connect the monitor via a USB cable to your PC/Laptop's USB port. Sounds awkward. Doesn't it? There must be a USB cable with flat socket on one end and trapezium shape jack on one end. It should be in the box which the monitor came in. The USB ports in the monitor are just another extended USB ports for your PC/Laptop. If you can't find the cable mentioned above, it is the same cable you connect to a printer, scanner,........ In some cases you might need to install a driver which should also come along with monitor. Mostly you don't need to install.
Good luck.

Did you tell the laptop that you wanted to use the external monitor instead or in addition to the built-in display? There's a hot-key sequence you have to hit to engage the external display. In addition you may need to update the drivers for the HDMI. Some computers you can right-click on the desktop and select "Graphics Properties" and tell Windows which display port to use. Basically it sounds like a configuration issue where you're going to have to figure out how to tell Windows to use the HDMI port.

Usb powered aoc monitor is blinking


Hello,

Active USB cables boost the USB signal not the 5v power lines. After about 6 feet the 5v power lines will only provide 4-4.5 volts and this is not enough to power the monitor. For this to work you will you will need to also use a powered USB hub at the remote end by the monitor. The USB hub will supply the power and the monitor needs and the active USB cable will provide the signal.

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor


Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:

steve_con_5.gif

Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Hook up that monitor to another laptop or computer. If it works then its an issue with the vga port on your laptop. If the monitor still shows those lines then you know for sure the monitor is bad and it will have to be replaced.

The cable from the Monitor USB input to PC USB output is good? Check to see if you do have 5vdc on pin 1 of the USB connector. Your monitor is basically a powered USB hub when it is connected to PC through a USB cable.

USB drive problem


I had a client with this same issue. However, her issue was that the top left USB port would only accept flash drives. Your external harddrive is probably not getting enough power from your USB port. Try using two USB ports (you can get a connector for this) to power up the external harddrive.
