Question about E-Machines M2000S 15.4" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor to tower compatibility.

I just bought a 15" e-machines LCD monitor, and I'm not sure what I need to hook it up to my tower. The Monitor cable has 3 rows of 5 pins, and my tower only seems to have slots for two rows of 5 pins.....I went to Best Buy and Radio Shack, and neither of them seem to have any clue what I'm talking about.

    Sort of like that - the shape of the pins is kind of rhomboid, though, and there's only 5 pins across....although I'm fairly certain that the monitor says "VGA" on that part....

  • Squeakity Aug 21, 2007

    That's it exactly. I guess the one with only two rows is DVI?

  • Squeakity Aug 21, 2007

    Sorry - I don't remember clearly the connectors on the tower - just that it was 2 rows, but not how many pins were part of each....

Could the connecter with 2 rows be a DB9? Does it look like this? If not, can you describe in detail what it looks like?

It sounds like you have a DVI cable on your monitor. (See attached picture) If you go into radioshack ask them for a DVI to VGA connector. Let me know if the picture looks like the cable you have on your monitor. M

    Can you do a search on Google images for "vga Connector" and let me know if you see a picture that is the same as your monitor.
    Or are you able to take a picture and email it to me?

    It looks like you have a DVI Video Card.

    If you go to radio shack and ask them for this:

    You have VGA monitor connector and you have a DVI video card.

SOURCE: Black Screen-No picture

Normally when an LCD monitor goes black, it is because the inverter goes out (which essentially is the backlighting).  To verify this problem, hold a flashlight up to the monitor while it is turned on and see if you can "see" the picture.  If this is the case, it could be repaired, but realistically, the cost to replace it might be cheaper (and you would probably end up with a larger monitor to boot).

SOURCE: Monitor power light blinks blue but does not power on

if the screen was fryed the fuse would of blew which means there would be no lights at all.. the best thing you can do is plug your screen into another pc to see if anything happens.. if nothing happens then yeah your screen must of messed up somewhere.. but if your screen works on another computer then your graphics card config cant be right somewhere along the line

Hooked up New Hp comp (tower only) to slightly new HP2007 monitor but there is no sound.Could you give me an idea of what I missed?

Make sure the audio cable supplied with the monitor is connected correctly. Make sure it is connected to the green (speaker out) jack at the back of tower and the same green (audio in) jack on the monitor. Also make sure the volume on both your PC and monitor is turned up and not muted

My Sister has a dell monitor and a emachines tower, She cant get the monitor to turn on. is it compatible? Or is there something else she should try cause she has it hooked up right.

They are compatible, make sure your connectors are right... If the emachine is using a graphics card, make sure it is hooked up to the greaphics card not the motherboard but if you do have it hooked up to the graphics card, then try the motherboard's video output.

Will not power on... i have two of these monitors that experienced the same problem within 2 weeks of each other

Chances are that you have some problem with the power supply part of your computer. Depends on how your monitor is connected. If it is from the cabinet (tower) then, we need to check for spikes from the machine (chances of getting spikes from SMPS of tower is low). If it is directly connected ensure that the socket has proper stabilized power supply. Let me know how your machine is structured in terms of connection.

Blank screen

Disconnect the monitor , from the computer, switch the monitor on , if you have some kind of Dell self test box running on the screen. The monitor is OK . The problem can be with the video card or resolution settings.

Also, try connectin the old monitor you had hooked up with the system to check ,if you see anything

How to hook up flat screen monitor??

That's all you need. Just a standard power cord plus the VGA connector cable. Plug the new monitor into the same spot as the old one.
