Solved No video out on Dell hp u2106F3
I was not sure if I could post this here, since it may not be software related. My Dell MODEL NUmber HP U2106F3 fails to display anything on monitor. Monitor works ok with other computer. Power supply and CPU fan come on, I get beeps when I unplug memory modules. I plugged in a good HD. I have both a Dv port and standard monitor port. I am using the standard monitor port. Do I have to enable any jumpers to use the respective monitor port? This computer was purchased from a State Surplus sale, so I do not know the history behind it. It does have a Pentium 4.-2.6. Is there any way I can rule out the Processor as the culprit?
The DV..card is replaceble, if the standard monitor port goes out, is it possible the DV port is still good, if I get a DV capable monitor? Frank
I took my computer to the local Flea Market and a guy selling computers let me test my DV output with a DV monitor. It did not work, on my computer. He then took out my DV card from my Dell computer, plugged in a conventional monitor, (dont remember the correct name), and the monitor worked. I brought my computer home and now regular monitor works. My conclusion is the DV card was bad, and tying up the resources for my regular monitor connection, and was the source of the problem.
