Monitor no signal


Thank you for posting your question.

Try checking your data cable. There are two cables in your monitor. A power cable and a data cable. The power cable is connected to the wall outlet while the data cable is connected to your computer. Try resetting the connection or checking the connection if it's plugged in properly. Make sure that you can check both end (computer and monitor).

If you need more help, please drop me a line.

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.

Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.

  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    Where is the HD so that I can take it out on the HP 873n?

    Turn your computer off.

    Disconnect the AC power-cable.

    Remove the side-panel.

    Look for two wide-and-flat "ribbon" cables connected to the motherboard. One cable will connect to the "back" of your CD/DVD drive. The other cable will connect to the "back' of your disk-drive.

    If you don't see any such "ribbon" cables, look for two wide-as-your-pinky-finger's-nail cables connected to the motherboard. One cable will connect to the "back" of your CD/DVD drive. The other cable will connect to the "back' of your disk-drive.

    There also may be a "ribbon" cable between the motherboard and the "back" of the 3.5" diskette drive; such a cable will have a "twist" in some of the leads in the ribbon-cable. Obviously, your diskette-drive is _NOT_ your hard-drive.

    I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv

    Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

    You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

    1. Connecting with an AV cable
    2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
    3. Connecting with an Optical Cable

    Connecting with an AV Cable:

    1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
    2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
    3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".

    Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

    HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

    1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
    2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.

    Connecting with an Optical cable:

    You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

    1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
    2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.

    Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

    The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

    I am having problems at times, connecting on the internet, and other networks online. (i.e.)an icon would appear and suggest an error/data was made and being reported, and automatically swicth me back to...

    Cable has changed it's policy and standards many times in the past

    if you have a cable modem you will most certanly need to decide
    if you're going to be using the cat5 ethernet connection or the USB connection cable

    if you have an onboard ethernet adaptor or a PCI ethernet adaptor
    it's best if you use the cat5 connection of the cable modem

    if you have no ethernet adaptor , you will need to use the USB connection of the cable modem
    and connect that to your computer , which will most deffinately require that you have working
    USB ports and at least service pack 2 loaded to enable USB 2.0 , and a driver from the cable
    modems driver CD

    if you're using a router , use the cat5 connection of the cable modem

    ( make sure you contact your ISP to walk you through the setup proceedures )

    I am at step 4 or installation and the message reads your ethernet cable does not appear to be connected properly. I have checked all cables and they are inserted properly.

    check if a cable is connected well the light will blink on the ethernet port. After that you cant see the whether the cable is connected just go to the My Network places(if you are using the microsoft windows) and goto network connections and local arear connections, right click it,and go to properties , now you can see the select button with message like (show icon in taskbar when connected ) just select it apply all the setting which is changed and close it reconnect the cable now you can see the message when is cable is connected
