Having problems with your Compaq MV 540 15" CRT Monitor ?

Blurry n want to know about mic - Compaq MV 540 15" CRT Monitor


Answers :

Blurry image is usually due to either a bad picture tube or failure of a part in the monitor called the flyback transformer. Both of these parts can go bad with age and use, and this is a pretty old monitor now. It is not worth trying to repair this; a new 17 or 19-inch flat screen is pretty inexpensive these days.

The microphone is wired to a connector on the back of the monitor which has a little symbol of a microphone by it. You connect this to the microphone jack on your computer. You can use the same kind of cable you would use to connect the sound output from the computer to a set of speakers. Once you plug in that cable just make sure the microphone is turned on in Windows and you're set to talk.
