After you installed the SSD were you able to install the operating system or you get a blank screen after installing the SSD?

I have done that before many times in my job earlier. so that is not the problem.
My problem is that my screen would not start. It is conected to my pc by vga cable, I just took it over from my old pc to this lenova.
Are there any specialities I should be avare of as regard connection from lenovo til my HP screen?
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

vga cables are universal and they have D type 9 pin connectors, one end male and the other end female.

Test the cable on a different computer then we can confirm the cable is good or not.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I had to cable back to my old pc and here as you understand, my screen is ok, and as my cable works between my old pc and the screen, the only thing I can understand is that there are something within the new pc.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Hello Michelle
now I am online and anxious to hear what proposal you have for my computer.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I saw what you had written yesterday, and to restore my problem I will make a list:
1. I am now using my old Multicom pc.
2. I have bought an used pc Lenovo ThinkCentre M91p without harddrive.
3. I have bought a ssd harddrive and mounted it in my "New" pc.
4. When I start up witg a cd With win 7 I can hear the cd-rom working and see light telling me that it is as it should be.
5. When I turn on the pc my screen does not answer, and after a short while it goes into sleeping mode.
6. I have used the same Connections between the screen and the Lenovo as I am using now as I am writing to you on this old pc..
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
