Your computer and monitor will both have power cables.

Your monitor will have a cable with a blue end on it. This is your video cable.

Connect one end of that cable to your monitor. It will only fit in one spot.

Connect the other end to your video card or on board video, again it will be a blue port and only fit in one spot.

That will be all you need to do in order to get video.

My crt monitor has gone half black...tried it with different CPU...still the same problem... Please advise me what to do...

Check the controls on the Monitor. Find the one for Up / Down. You may have to hold a Function Button at the same time. If this obviously older monitor has an AUTO SETUP button or something similar, try using that. If all else fails, check to see if there is a proper connection between the monitor and the computer. Some monitors don't like some brands of cables. Try using another type of cable like a VGA or SVGA cable and see if that works.

My View Sonic VX2250-wm-LED monitor has suddenly gone pink. I work on a Mac Mini and the monitor has always looked beautiful. I just recently bought this brand new monitor within the last 4 months. ...

I would replace the cable that connects the monitor to the computer. If that doesn't fix the problem then return the product, it should still be under warranty.
Good Luck!

My monitor is dark. I can barely see what's on the screen. Please advise. I increased the screen brightness but it did not help.

It is either the screen is bad or the flex (the cable connection board to screen) is broken. You will need to have the screen and its flex check. Either way it will have to replaced.

Try a different "data" cable between the monitor and your computer.

Try connecting your monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor has the same problem.

Try connecting a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer's video-card is the source of the problem.

Free advise on lcd monitor not responding to cpu?

You need to isolate the problem first. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Connect the problem LCD monitor into different computer (to see if the problem is the monitor or it could be the video card in your computer).

2. Try connecting a known working monitor to the problem computer.

If the problem monitor worked with other computer, then you may need to contact the computer manufacturer for the second opinion.

If the monitor did not work with other computer, then you may need to refer to the manufacturer of the LCD for repair.

Have a great day!

USB outlets

I'm assuming you are speaking of the USB ports on the Monitor?

Do you have the USB cable running from the back of your computer to the back of your monitor? For those ports to work, you need a USB cable that runs from the computer to your monitor. This is a cable in addition to the power cable and the video cable. Verify you have three cables connected.

If you are not speaking about the USB ports on the monitor, please advise...

I have received a new monitor as a gift for my computer. It is the W1934S and I was wondering if I should have sound with this display. I do have speakers from my previous monitor but there does not seem...

It doesn't come with speakers. see for yourself here.

If you want external speakers, connect the speakers to the back of the computer. the port will be a small, round green hole. to connect 2 speakers, you need a 3.5mm splitter.
