Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I BOUGHT A USED COMPAQ FLAT-SCREEN MONITOR ON EBAY TO USE WITH MY DELL PC, BUT IT ONLY HAS A VERY SHORT UNUSUAL CORD THAT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY COMPUTER & DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANY KIND OF POWER CORD SEEN ON OTHER MONITORS. IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET AN ADAPTER FOR THIS?

Compaq has a habit of using what I refer to as a "mickey mouse" power cord, (because if you look at the connector upside-down, it resembles mickey mouse).
These cords ARE available in longer lengths at computer stores, but it might be cheaper and easier to simply buy an extension cord to plug it into.

Now, you say not compatible with your computer...are you saying that the computer connector AND the power cord are BOTH an issue, or were you just saying that this power cord would never fit your computer like most other monitor power cords would?

You need a new driver for the monitor. Are you now using a new Operating System? Perhaps Windows 7? Go to the http://dell.com websit and look up your monitor under downloads and drivers. Fidn the compatible driver for your operating system and download it.

I just want basic hook up from my hp compaq to dell flat screen


Most Monitors use the 15 pin cable that is compatiable with almost any computer. I would check the back of your computer for the blue monitor port and then check the cable on the monitor to see how many pins there is.

Armada m3000 screen


you can mess around and try to fix it but on those old machines its really not worth it(I own 5 of these).Might I suggest the Armada M700 or the E500--e500 is what im on now and it runs better than a brand new dell or compaq)you might get a new screen on ebay for about 40 bucks. It might be a better idea to buy a new one and save the parts from your old one. You can get a new one for 70 bucks on ebay.
