Thread: power for monitor




  1. #1

    Default

    got a bit of a problem i think. i have an old compaq v50 monitor (it does its job) and it plugs into the psu for power. the new case im getting has a new, hopefully better psu but i dont think it would have the spot to plug my monitor in. is there some sort of adapter i can get to plug the monitor straight into the wall or am i doomed to use my ****ty generic power supply? thanks

    Just buy another normal power cable and plug the screen into the wall. The only reason that I know of that people plug the screen into the PSU is convenience. It saves a power point and will turn the screen off with the PC (it used to, some still have passthrough power that doesn't)

    The standard power cable should be exactly the same as your PC's power cable

    Whatever you use to connect your power supply to the wall.
