I have an HP desktop PC 6316UK with an HP2229H screen. I also have a 10 year old Evesham PC with an LG Flatron Monitor. I need to acces some old stuffm on the Evesham but the monitor has packed up. Can I connect my HP monitor to the Evesham temporarily while I transfer old files to an external hard drive. I don't want to try this if it might damage the HP screen. Thanks

Hi

It should be fine - you may get a poor screen resolution which you can either accept whilst you are transferring the files or spend a little time trying to improve. The graphics card in the older pc may not have enough memory to run much better than 800x600.

Thanks very much Jollyjohn. That puts my mind at rest.
