You're best off getting one with an HDMI input, something like this http://www.dabs.com/products/benq-v2210-eco-21-5--widescreen-1920-x-1080-hdmi-vga-lcd-monitor-69M7.html?refs=54290000 , or this http://www.dabs.com/products/viewsonic-vx2239wm-22--1920-x-1080--full-hd-lcd-tft-with-2ms-vga-dvi-d-hdmi-monitor-77T8.html?refs=54290000.
is this what you are looking for?
yes,i was just havin a look at this,i realise it sounds a tad thik,but is this compatible with both my laptop & ps3? i'm not sure what vga is.
VGA is the 15 pin connection which is arranged in 3 rows of 5, usually coloured blue or with a blue cable connector.
your laptop should have one of these VGA ports which you can use, and use the PS3 with the HDMI.
yes,many thx altair,i feel reasured after your tip.yet i am now confused as to why i cannot cancel my order.after 3 attempts it is still showing as being processed.if there is a monitor reading this,please advise as i mean not to offend.
dabs seem to be having some residual backlog left over from the last few weeks. give it a little while and it will get sorted
mny thx altair,am i right in thinking that no money will out of my account until order is shipped.
dabs make a big point of not taking payment for anything until it is despatched and you have received email confirmation of the despatch
ok,but something does not seem right as i have successfully canceled another order after i assumed the previous had also been canceled.reason being,the first is still showing as being processed,so,not wanting to end up paying for 2 items,etc,etc.i hope you follow all this.sorry to bother you with these tedious replies,but,well..............!!
try sending a PM to one of the moderators with any questions you have.
they are all very helpful.
how do i go about this altair?
on the main forum page, just above the "what's going on" box which tells you who's online, there is a link which reads "view forum leaders" this takes you to a list of moderators. try someone with Dabs in their name, or PaulC, or DanP.
on the right hand side of this list for each person is a button which reads "Send PM", click on that then type your message and submit it just as you do with a forum post.
I would recommend starting with Sam_Dabs, or PaulC first
again mny thx for your help.
not a problem, hope it works for you:D
