Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I currently operate an HP nc8430 Laptop with a docking station. Attached is a Phillips a 24" Widescreen LCD monitor. The problem is as follows: • At startup, the Laptop and LCD work fine up until the point where I log in; • Once I log in and the scripts start to run, the LCD goes offline and enters sleep mode; • I then have to go into ATI Catalyst or the Display settings to enable the LCD and change the resolution; and • However, even when I do this, the resolution on the Laptop is off (the whole screen is not visible and when you get to the edges it will scroll over) and I cannot close the cover, as it will make the LCD go into sleep mode.

1) Change the power settings to not do anything when you close the lid under AC power. The LCD isn't entering sleep mode, the laptop is.

2) Change the monitor setup so that monitor 2 (the LCD) is the main monitor.

3) Change the resolution for the LCD to the way you want it. (You may also have to use the monitor's adjustments - on the monitor - to make the display a little smaller, so you can see everything. Different monitors are masked differently.)

Is there way to connect an external monitor to this? Maybe you can find a docking station. If the LCD went bad it can be very expensive to replace.

I have two docking stations for my Travelmate 8103WLMi both docking statins have lost there USB port connectivity. Is there anything that can be done so that the USB ports work again?


Try updating the drivers for the docking stations. Even in commonly used items such as docking stations which can be used without drivers, if you go to the manufacturer's web site and download drivers or management software, you will find it works better.

Otherwise, try somone else's laptop with those docking stations to make sure it's not your latop causing the problem. If it doesn't work for them either, the docking station is broken and there is really nothing you can do about that short of paying more than it's worth for someone to change out the USB component of the docking station.

I bought a Universal Notebook docking station (Targus) and it appears not to have an input for a monitor. Model # ACP45US.


The universal notebook is for a laptop, thus making it completely uncompatible with a desktop, or in your case a monitor.
