I got a monitor off of a friend because my old one quit working. The monitor is called a (SuperCom) very old. lol but can't complain it was free.
And my tower is called an (Emachine).
Well I plugged the monitor into the computer and turned it on and it looked as though it was gonna work until it gets to the desktop. Well it started to go crazy. There were lines running so fast across the screen you could not see anything. It looked like when you have a vcr tape in your vcr and you have to fix the tracking.
So I shut it off and started it in safe mode. and i could see the screen except it was fuzzy.
so I checked my colors and it says I only have 16 colors. but I know I have more because I just hooked up anouther monitor and it worked fine.
another thing I did was go in to Device manager and there is a question mark over other devices and PCI Communication Device. What does this mean?
What should I do To make this monitor work with my tower. And can you have different monitors and towers together or do they have to be the same?
Thanks for the help
