Just found a neat little GUI utility to monitor the health of hard drives as reported by SMART - GSmartControl - http://gsmartcontrol...dex.php/en/Home Available in Debian repo and probably yours too. My old 320GB drive reports 44060 hrs power on time and 763 reallocated sectors. Warning! Imminent failure! It's been reporting its imminent death for over a year. Only a data drive with everything backed up so I'll see how long it lasts.
Greetings. I have a bad monitor and a friend who's good with electronics and circuitry who's interested in trying to fix it. So I was wondering if anyone would have some idea what the problem is with this monitor and what to look at once we get it opened up. The monitor turns on just fine. The problem is when it it connected to a computer. Once I plug in the VGA cable, the computer desktop shows for a few seconds then the monitor just goes blank and that's it. When tested, the computer still detects that another monitor is been connected, but the monitor itself shows no image after a few seconds. It's a standard 15 inch LCD Dell monitor, VGA input. It's just an old monitor and if it can work again, that would be great. If not, no big deal.
To get sound on me Pi, can I connect a cable from one of the sockets at "7 above" on me monitor to the socket on the PI ? If I get a HDIM to DIV conector will I get sound out of the monitor as it has "DVI (with HDCP support)" ? Will I need to get a special type of connector ? Do not even ask me who has been mistaking micro usb with mini usb
