My parents called me asking how to fix their monitor over the phone, so I'm sorry if the details in this question arn't as clear as might be desired. They say when they turn the system on, (Packard Bell computer and I think It's a U.S. Logic Monitor (Cheapo) only a 1/4'th inch by 1'inch square appears in the middle of the monitor. I had my dad change the monitor adjustments on the bottom of the screen and it did move the box around but not very large. Also, apparently the box changes colors so as to signify the information is going from the cpu to the monitor in some fashion. I had the system powered down, then unplugged the monitor from cpu and examined the plug. 13 male pins. Then the monitor was replugged firmly into the back of the cpu with no avail. can anyone think of some think I missed? Should I just have my parents go out and buy another monitor?
Thank you very much,
