Hi, it looks like i'll be getting a 19" tft monitor to replace my ailing CRT. I have an ACER Aspire T120. The monitors that I am looking at (cheap) seem to have DVI conectors. I'm sure that my Acer dosn't have a DVI socket,,, so is it just a matter of getting an adaptor,,, or do I need a new card ? Is there anything else that I ought to know please ? thanks all
Thanks both,,,, I'll try to get the retailer to drop one in ???? Any idea who are doing cheap tft's at the moment ? I've done the usual searches & it seems like £125 is about the cheapest (I saw the HannG HU196D 19" but I just don't like the look of it !) thanks again
De Marcus - thanks for that. It does look nice enough,,,, not sure if I want Widescreen tho' ! I 'think' that the only use I would have is s.sheet stuff in Excel which I only use infrequently. I don't watch TV/Movies etc on it. Never used w.screen on a computer,,,, & I assume that you lose a bit of height for the sake of width,, to get the 19" (or am I talking b..... ?) I did note the VGA interface tho - in my favour. I might have a better look at w.screen in the High Street before I make my mind up. Thanks again for your help
My CRT (ACER) is away at the moment being fixed. I have planted the seed that if it isn't worth repairing, that I'd 'consider' a tft replacement (!!) I was hoping to have heard from them by now,,,, but as soon as I do, I'll know which way to jump.
If they don't replace it, i'll use it on Puter number 2, as this 'stand-in' monitor (Daewoo) has gone very soft through non use (I assume) & i'll get a 4-3 ratio tft for now.
Thanks for your advice Furkin
