Having problems with your Compaq P 1220 22" CRT Monitor ?

When I hook up my moniter it does not work like other moniters.

\015 I bought this moniter of a garage sale.\015\012I plugged the power cord, usb and the pc to moniter cable.\015\012Anyways so my moniter is hooked up and when i turn it on and turn my pc on i get this screen that you normally get if your pc to moniter cable is not connect. I even tryed turning it off and on and i tryed to switch between the two ports but it dosn't work.\015\012Do i first need to install the moniter drivers and then hook this moniter up or can i intall the driver after wards. The main point is that this moniter is not working it keeps bringing me to the screen that your normaly get if your pc card cable is not connect to your moniter.\015\012WHAT should i do.\015

Ok sounds like you have a broken pin on your cable if you look in the end of the cable plug the part thet goes into the box but also check both ends if they are there

It sounds like your monitor is broken. Try another computer with it and see if you get an output.\015\012
\015\012Do you see anything while the computer is POSTing? (Starting up, you should see white letters or a splash screen as it goes through it's Power On Self Test.) If so, the resolution of your video card may be set too high for your monitor. If that's the case, as it POSTs hold down F8 (if you have a Windows OS) and start in safe mode. Go into properties for your video card and lower the resolution. If it's an older system, you can boot in VGA mode.\015\012
\015\012A monitor doesn't need drivers to work. "Drivers" are usually little extras that allow you to control certain aspects of the monitor that are special to that system, but that's all. It doesn't need them to work.

Speaker trouble I just got this moniter for Christmas and just got it all hooked up and running and I can't figure out how to work the speakers. under the volume menu it says that the speakers are working and the volume on the computer is hooked up, but I just don't hear anything. Is there supposed to be a seperate cord for the speakers? what can I do?

There has to be separate cord for the speakers. Look for an Audio port on the back of the monitor. It looks like a small hole and should be marked "Audio". Connect this to the Audio out on the PC using a cable with two Audio jacks at both ends. ... Acer AL1914 19" LCD Monitor

Have just hooked up my Viewsonic VA720 moniter as the main moniter to a new laptop that I have. The laptop is an ACER Travelmate 6293 running windows XP. When I come to start up my computer each morning the Viewsonic screen only flashes on for a few seconds and then goes blank....I have to turn the screen off and on about 40 to 50 times until eventually it stays on....It is almost like it has to warm up......Any Ideas..??
