A monitor or a display is an electronic visual display for computers, usually comprised of the display device, circuitry, casing, and power supply. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) thin panel, while older monitors used a cathode ray tube (CRT) about as deep as the screen size. They are connected to the computer via VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, LVDS or other proprietary connectors and signals.

I am having problems with my Benq BL2400 monitor. Windows 7 doesn't detect it and offers me horrible resolutions to use.

Any ideas on how to make Windows 7 detect my monitor?

I have a Sapphire 280X Toxic graphics card that is not showing any picture on a Benq BL2400 screen.

When I connect the GPU to my TV via HDMI, it shows a picture like it is supposed to when the PC boots. But Benq BL2400 doesn't have HDMI. So I connect to Benq using a cable with DVI in one end (for the Benq screen) and HDMI in the other end. That doesn't work. I then connected a cable that is DVI in both ends, and that didn't work either.

Seems like my Sapphire doesn't like my Benq screen,

Is there any trick I am missing to get it to work?

Hi, I have a docking station that I've used for three years.  It has not caused any problems.  The hardware that evolved over time is the latest purchase of a Latitude from older model to new model.  Also, I have went from one monitor to two monitors with an extended mode screen setup.  The Dell Latitude docking station has two display port connections on the rear of the dock.   The latest setup has been holding up well with Windows 10 until the last month.   I've always placed the computer in sleep mode to eject from the dock environment and take it on the go.  However, the monitors fail to display lately when I redock unless I flip open the laptop screen.  Then one screen pops open while the other display remains dormant.  I can't get the dormant screen to activate unless I shutdown instead place in sleep mode.  Then turn on the computer and the two screen finally pop up after logging on to Windows 10.  Is this Windows 10 or hardware?  I'm leaning towards Windows 10 but I have no idea how to fix it.
Finally, my Dell Latitude e5430 battery went bad after 5 months.  Any recommendation on Dell adapters?  Does it not like the old Dell adapters?  Why would the battery go bad so quickly?

Hello, I am needing assistance with taking apart a Dell S2209Wb monitor.  I have a replacement power supply board that I need to install however I can only get as far as removing the 4 screws behind the monitor stand.  There seems to be no way to get the bezel off, there are no guides or grooves to use as a starting point and it simply won't come off.

Upon searching online, there are absolutely zero tutorials on how to do so with this particular model.  All other Dell model tutorials are immaterial since this model seems to be special and does not go along with the general rule of prying off the bezel.

Can anyone provide any assistance on this?  I need detailed steps and illustrations or video is a major plus.

Got a Toshiba laptop with a dead display. Connecting to an external monitor works fine, so I replaced LCD & then I'm getting a very dark display, that can only be seen if I shine a light up against the screen, which makes me think inverter, right? Replaced inverter & no change. Could I have a bad replacement? Is there any way to troubleshoot further? I suggested just trashing it, but owner says there are programs that only run on it (Vista?) & she doesn't have the disks to reinstall.
She does have a new Win 10 computer, I believe - could a VHD be created from this, allowing her to run it as a VM on her Win 10, if it supports Hyper V?

if it is other brands also, I'd be interested in your feedback on laptop models that are outperforming for you?

I have a VGA and a DVI-D input on my monitor. I have a new PC with only HDMI. I have an HDMI male to male cable. Is there an HDMI female to DVI-D male adapter that you know works to fix this?

I have a KVM with a VGA male. The computer has an HDMI 2.0b female input. I want/need to use the cable that came with the KVM switch. At the other end it is a VGA female to attach to a VGA male on a legacy computer. The converter must have VGA male on one side to connect to the cable and HDMI 2.0b male on the other side to connect to the computer. What do I get? I can't find the converter I am looking for on Google or Amazon.

I have a POS system that uses two monitors one for customer display and one for the employee display.  The customer display is a Dell 17 inch monitor using a display port.  The employee monitor is an Elio 17 in Touch Screen monitor using a VGA.  I am using a Dell Optiplex 3020 with Windows 7 Pro 32bit with an Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400.  

When starting the computer it is defaulting for the Dell (Customer) Monitor to be Monitor 1 and the Elo (Employee) Monitor to be Monitor 2.   The POS software automatically puts the Employee Screen onto "Monitor 1" and the Customer Screen onto "Monitor 2".   So I need to have the computer assign Monitor 1 to the Elo (VGA port)  and Monitor 2 to the Dell (Display port).

We have a couple computers laptop that has no HDMI connectors and needed to connect them to their external 55" monitors.  We purchased 2 'Insignia - SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to HDMI External Video Adapter' NS-PU37H-BK USB-HDMI adapter in  order to have them connected to their respected external monitor.  It works fine but we noticed that if we connect said monitor to a laptop that DOES have HDMI connector built in, the monitor resolution permit to make the character smaller and more define.

Why the diference in resolution?

Also, do we have to purchased another type of USB-HDMI adapter in order to get  the external monitor true resolution?

We have 2 large screen / HDMI input TVs.  We've been paying for 2 cable boxes - 1 is a (whole house) DVR and the other is just a cable box.  There's only 2 of us in the house / we never watch tv on both TVs at once.

I can return the 1 cable box and save about $12 a month, I'd like to be able to feed the 2nd TV (now without a cable box) with a signal from the HDMI output of the DVR cable box.  Yeah, we have to run between the 2 TVs to change channels, etc.

What's the max cable length for an HDMI cable and still have a usable signal at the far end?

I'm familiar with coax and A/B switchboxes and signal splitters to get the signal to both TVs (and either use the A/B switch or just splitter depending on signal quality). But don't know about HDMI.

Is there an equiv to a coax splitter for HDMI? Does signal suffer? or is it digital so it's OK if we are within that max length above?

Or is there an A/b box to split hdmi?

And is there a way to get the remote's signal from the 2nd TV down to the first? (that gadget that you clip the lightsource in front of the DVR box's infra red receiver?

is all of this going to cost more than the $12 / month?  or do you have some other ideas?

I have an HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Tower computer. The computer has an Intel HD Graphics 530 driver.
I have three monitors connected using Display Port cables. The problem is, when I try to duplicate the image on screen number 2 and 3,  I get an error stating "Unable to save display settings".
I have completely uninstalled the video drivers and downloaded the latest driver version on the HP website, but I still cannot duplicate the two monitors.
This is happening on multiple computers of the same model. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this working?

Large manufacturers that make monitors seldom make a huge mistake in manufacturing. And if they did they would correct it asap especially in an item that sells well and that they intend to continue to manufacture. The mystery: I have two brand new Dell 25" Ultra monitors model U2515H. Both of them exhibit what I and many others feel is unexpected behavior of the on/off switch. The switch is a capacitance type touch switch. Often the switch will not turn the monitor on. Often times when the monitor is working apparently fine the switch will not turn it off. This MAY be some type of "feature" that many, including me, do not understand. The monitor has been out for at least one year. I confirmed with Dell that their own monitors with the exact same model number behave the same as mine. When googling the model and "on/off" switch the hits are many describing the same actions.

Does any Expert know FOR SURE what the reason behind this seemingly odd behavior is? There are many opinions given on the net, but most of them have later posts in the thread that indicate that they were incorrect. Note: I have a strong suspicion that the actual manufacturer of this item is Samsung.

Why do these monitors behave this way?

We have a client that has an older bnc type camera system, we replaced the DVR with this Samsung model (previous was Samsung).

The DVR boots up and shows all the 16 channels; however, there are no screens that show up, just circles with a line running through on each channel, 🚫 like this. I am not using an official power supply could that be the problem?

They have 10 cameras.

I want an internet "TV" for Netflix and to connect a laptop for you tube etc

I want to avoid a traditional round Cable connection from a TV cable company as its very expensive per month.

So best bang for buck should I get a smart TV that only has ethernet cable ...  but no traditional TV service connected ?

Id prefer a PC Monitor but they are very expensive
Like so

just got a new Dell XPS 13 9365 laptop running windows 2016 and I can't seem to get one of my external monitors to work. I have the monitor itself plugged into a J5Create vga to usb converter, and because the laptop only supports usb 3.0, I have the converter plugged into J5Create hub (which contains 1 hdmi port and 2 usb 2.0 ports, along with an ethernet and usb 3 port), and for the life of me, I can't get it to be recognized. switching it to the HDMI port is not an option.

I've tried hooking it up to a usb3 to usb2 dongle, didn't work. I've updated my bios and drivers to the latest and greatest to no luck. The hardware works as I had it hooked up to my old laptop with no problems. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
