Post by kata » Sat Feb 15, 2014 8:23 pm

No help needed thanks,

I am having problems with my monitor, I can buy a new cable for tower to monitor see if that is the problem.

I f it does'nt come on which it tending not to do unless I wiggle the cable then its a new monitor which will be at least a moth.

Hope it lasts till then but I could be missing a while.

If you are off line for a few weeks, I doubt you'll miss much this time of year. A few discussions about the weather and the like :wink:
Monitor, crt or tft? Have encountered numerous problems with tft adapters rather than vga or dvi cables. If crt then it's definitely time for a new monitor icon_thumleft icon_thumleft

There might be a monitor lizard hiding in it.

Flounder thanks,

I had the same messing with cables/leads this morning, took me some minutes to get it to load. When I shake the leads and push them in as far as I can the monitor comes on. I am going to order a new lead that goes from tower to monitor If that does'nt work then a new monitor.

Seen one reasonably priced at Amazan. Or I am open to shop Ideas similar price.

I think with having the 50" TV it would be amazing to surf off it as well.... :lol: If I did that I could take back a corner of my lounge and cables...sick of that scene.

Some monitors I notice have speakers included in the works, anyone any positives on this?

Using a 50" tv as your computer screen would take a bit of getting used to, it feels like you need two hands to control the mouse as the cursor is HUGE! :lol:
I prefer external speakers for computer work, on board ones are a bit 'tinny', but if it's just about space saving.....

I just bought Hercules speakers recently. I think second computer I had was an on board graphic and speaker card...hopeless.

I then got my son to shop at a comp fair and he built this one. It got a new tower recent so the monitor is now complaining.

Thanks Flounder I will be buying that monitor.

a 50" tv would be terrible for browsing, you can get a decent 22" now for £79 (this would come with a new VGA cable)

a new VGA cable for £2

DVI cable if your pc has it
