Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a compaq presario computer using a compaq monitor. I have a Gateway HX2000 LCD flat screen monitor (year 2009) that I want to us instead of my compaq monitor. I have disconnected the compaq monitor and connected the gateway HX2000 monitor but when I boot up my compaq persario the gateway HX2000 monitor screen comes on and shows a message that says "no vga signal" and has a screen as it boots up for only 2 or 3 seconds. If I turn off the gateway HX2000 LCD flatscreen monitor and turn it back on it will again have a screen image but only for 2 or 3 seconds and turns off again. How can I download or obtain a driver for the gateway HX2000 monitor and install it on my compaq presario computer when I have no visiable screen with the gateway HX2000 monitor?

I'm guessing the different monitors are different sizes? The only thing a driver for a monitor will do will tell the computer the max resolution that the monitor will be able to go up to. However most 90% of monitors can use the built in windows driver without issues. Your best bet is going to be to change the resolution on the monitor. To do this you can either hook up the old monitor, lower the resolution, and then plug in the other monitor. Or you can boot the computer into VGA low resolution mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up and selecting that option. From there you can lower the resolution, and then put it at something more desirable with the new monitor.
The other possibility being your Gateway monitor is actually malfunctioning and you just happened to hook up a bad monitor.

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken


Hi:
Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!
