LCD Monitor Question again thanks!!!

  Chrisann 13:01 01 Dec 2006

As I am going to replace my old Monitor on the old desktop Packard Bell Model with a LCD Monitor..I tried my HP LCD Screen to see if it would connect. It has the sae blue connector and pins but it will not go all the way in the Packard Bell Processor. Now what do I do as I was going out this weekend to get another one..but now now not sure if any will fit..and getting a screen home to find it won't will be a pain.

Any ideas.

Not trying to be funny or anything but I thought there was only 2 connectors that were used. A VGA one which is usually blue and the DVI interface one which looks completely different. Are you sure that you have been trying the correct socket?

check as well you have not bent any of the pins in the connector?

Its a VGA Connection for both,,looks the same but when I try to insert it into the Packard Bell cponnection on the processor it won't go all the way in..the pins of the VGA connector for the LCD Screen won't screw in at all...I tried but to no avail..but I am trying to connect in the same place etc. It looks like it will fit but it doesn't. The only slight difference is that the VGA on the Packard Bell screen is slightly fatter ..if this means anything. So not sure if any will fit now. Can't physically take the processor with me to try can I..?

Why not? - sure u can take it and ask stuff in shop to check the compatibility with your computer.

Wish I could help but I'm at a loss. I've only ever seen these 2 connectors used. If you're sertain you are using the correct socket on the PC. Do you still have the old monitor about? Can you compare it to the other monitor? Does the old monitor still work and if so can you try plugging it back in.
