Can I connect a DVI to a Compaq W17q

No - it uses VGA 15-pin D-type connector according to the specs.

The guide you told me to use did not have my model number W17q so I could not use any of the information.

Hello, try this link to the hp website where you will be able to view a user guide.
If you want further info, then go to the main hp website:
and select 'Support and Drivers' then on the next page, type in your
product 'W17Q' press 'search' then on the next screen scroll down and you'll see several options from which you can choose.

No sound from speakers

Ok newer monitors come with a HDMI connector and would need a compatable HDMI video card that has the ability for sound. The older monitors have a 3mm plug like a head phone jack you can plug this directly into the GREEN portion of the sound card that is installed in your system!

Compaq w17q monitor keeps going on and off how can i fix it?


1. check the power cords- make sure all are snug.
2. check and make sure no pins are bent in the cord to the computer
3. make sure that the monitor is not in auto-power save. Or in auto off mode. For example- is the light amber or green.
4. finally, make sure that your settings on your computer are not set to power off your monitor- as in a blank screen saver, power save or hibernate

Need to over-ride built-in speakers so desktop speakers work. Ever since I hooked up my Compac W17q monitor, the built-in speakers have taken over, but I want my desktop speakers for sound instead. How can...

Assuming your using a Windows operating system, you need to got to the sound settings and set your computers soundcard as the preferred output device. (Its under Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices in XP)
