Sorry Earl but this is not too clear

The monitor has VGA and HDMI

You say it gives no picture.

I asked you to disconnect but your now referring to analogue and the statement was not too clear...

Can you please clarify in a bit of detail the issue? Or I can call you if it is easier?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok thanks.

  1. Connect the HDMI cable to both the PC and the output device, for example, a television or home entertainment set.
  2. On the PC, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution.
  3. In case two displays are not listed, click Detect to start re-detection of the screens. One is greyed out. Click this screen.

Tell me if it then displays

You have 4 monitors connected to the one computer?

How exactly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
one monitor with tow connection, hdmi and vga
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

But the monitor only uses one of these Earl, either VGA or HDMI it does not use both at the same time

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
connecting the hdmi then you get hdmi, in this case no picture
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

yes Earl, so as I requested, only connect the hdmi

  1. Connect the HDMI cable to both the PC and the output device, for example, a television or home entertainment set.
  2. On the PC, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution.
  3. In case two displays are not listed, click Detect to start re-detection of the screens. One is greyed out. Click this screen.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, You need to only connect the monitor via the HDMI port, not the VGA and HDMI

Then click detect please

Then check if it shows
