Hi I am trying to connect a LG w2042T monitor (very old) by my HDMI to the DVI port in the monitor via an adaptor.
I cant get it to screen the computer.
I have check the monitor with another DELL computer and it works
Any idea what the problem might be?
Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Select a connection type based on your second monitor.
Monitor: USB-C , Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , DisplayPort , DVI , VGA
TV: USB-C , Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , DisplayPort
High Definition TV: USB 3.0 , Mini HDMI , DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , HDMI , DVI , VGA
Connect the TV or monitor to the computer using the cable you chose.
Connect a power cable to the TV or monitor, and then turn it on.
TV connections only: Change the TV video input source to match the video source connection from the computer (Line-1, Video-1, HDMI, etc.). Refer to documents that came with the TV for instructions.
Depending on the TV, the image quality might not be as good as that of a monitor.
Turn on the computer.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
