Using 42HP66 as a Computer Monitor for a Compaq Presario 2150NX Desktop
I can't seem to get my 42HP66 to work properly with my desktop computer. I can run it in Safe Mode w/ networking but can't run it in Normal Mode....I keep getting a NO SYNC SIGNAL messege. Also when i run it in safe mode i get 3 blurry spots on the screen, one in the center of the screen stretching the width of the screen and 2 more on the top as well as the bottom. Anyone have a solution?

Re: Using 42HP66 as a Computer Monitor for a Compaq...
Reboot your PC! When the pc starts booting up push F8 it will take you to the same screen asking you if you want to run the pc in safe mode! What you want to do is to select the Start PC in VGA mode! It should set your video card to a default setting allowing it to work with the TV!
I hope this helps you!

If you mean you didn't get any display in your monitor the first solution is u must reinsert your memory and memory slot.if still have the same issue confirm your monitor is connected to your tower properly.if you still have the same issue just replace your memory (ram).thank you.
first check the power cable if its properly plugin, and check if ac to dc adaptor has a output power. you can check it by using digital voltmeter or an analog multimeter, you can see the pin output in the back of the adaptor, it has positive and negative sign.
Try using your windows cd to boot up the computer and if that does not work then you may need to reset the bios. Inside the case if it is desktop there is a way to reset the the bios. There is a jumper that needs to be switch then switched back that will reset the bios. If this does not work may need to get a new hard drive. The MBR ( Master Boot Record) may have been corrupted.
atomikhound, May need to find correct drivers for this unit. Try search at HP website using the unit's product number on rear of the monitor. What is date of manufacture on this unit? It seems that this monitor only works with a Presario 4800 series desktop computer for which it was custom designed for. The article I read at "Epinions.com" said it should be used as a boat anchor if you can't get a copy of original 48xx system restore disks that have the special "drivers" needed for it. Good luck. 12fixlouie
