Yes. It would be _stupid_ to design a monitor that was compatible only with _some_ brand-name computers.

You have a bad power supply capacitor or two. Very common. Not worth fixing, these are free on craigslist *replacement monitors like this

The sound for this monitor is connected with the usb cable that is attached to the monitor cable. Replace the usb cable from the pc to the monitor.

If you want people to help you, take a little bit of time to explain your problem with enough descriptive words so we can help. This is a waste of everyones time.

It sounds like that monitor has a leakage problem on the ground or shield. This is a common flaw that forces intel motherboards to keep from booting. If you carefully cut the outermost layer of monitor cable away (it looks like a basket weave made of metal threads) that surrounds the other signal cables inside, this problem will go away.

Your computer is putting out a digital signal and your monitor is too old to accept it.

This means your video card is set to a frequency that is too high for the monitor to match. Lower the switching speed via the properties window on the computer. Try 800x600 @ 60hz for starters. You can reboot into safe mode by pressing and holding F8 as you reboot. This will allow you to boot in a low resolution mode which should allow you access to these settings.

Your monitor is suffering an overheat condition due to the switcher internally working too hard and overheating, shutting down the switching supply. Replace the electrolytic caps on the board with new low esr ones and you should see this problem go away.

Most likely your issue is a bad video card or a bad vga cable. Try swapping video cards and see if this doesn't solve the problem. You could also use a vga signal generator, available for pretty cheap, to inject a signal into the monitor to determine if the problem is indeed your source rather than your monitor. If the monitor is the problem, you can try troubleshooting the various components on the circuit board with a huntron tracker while the unit is powered down. But then, I digress, as this is quickly becoming a solution beyond my ability to explain to you the inner workings of such things as a pn junction or the phase lag of a capacitor or the ringing of an inductor. Sorry, might be best for you to simply buy a new monitor. Ones like these cost, what - oh, look! FRee on craigslist.

You could also use better descriptive words and sentences to help me - help you. I have no idea what you're asking. Sorry.

It depends if the camera has composite video output or is an i.p. camera. Most likely it's composite video output in which case you'll need to purchase a scaler like this one. If the camera is an i.p. camera then you simply use a computer attached to the same router or subnet and open a browser window and navigate to the same i.p. address as the camera, you may need to know password and username to log into stream.

The power supply has a bad capacitor. It's 4700uf at 16v, electrolytic. You'll notice it from the slight bulge in the top that may be very apparent or barely visible. Replace it with a LOW ESR cap of at least the same voltage rating as the original if not greater. Simply de-solder the old one from the psu board using a soldering iron and some solder wick, insert the new capacitor, polarity correct, and you should be fine.

The capacitor will cost about $2.00 not including shipping. Here's a link to Mouser. Don't buy this capacitor until you've verified the value and voltage from the one on your monitor power supply. It's alright to use a slightly higher (up to 10%) value of capacitor and the voltage doesn't really matter as long as you're over the rated voltage of the unit you're removing.

Don't do this if you have no experience, the voltages are high enough to hurt you and you may regret it. This monitor is worth less than the cost to repair it but if you're set on it fine.

Sounds like the LCD mother board is bad. I have the same problem. The board cost $75 at sva-usa.com. I trashed it and bought a use Dell LCD off craigslist for $60.

Actually it was quite easy. I rebooted my computer in "safe mode" by restarting it and pressing the F8 key. At the start up windows gives you an option to toggle down to "enable VGA mode" and select it. After that, my computer recognized my monitor and it has worked fine ever since!

Replace your power cord, recycle the old one :)

It sometimes takes up a minute for video card to detect new moitor. Try attaching new monitor only and boot it in save mode.
