How do i switch to external monitor


Virtually all IBM and Lenovo ThinkPad and ThinkCenter laptops allow you to hook up an additional monitor or projector to the computer. When you add an external monitor or projector to your notebook, you can choose to view the display on the computer, on the external device, or on both the laptop and the external monitor or projector at the same time. Toggling between viewing devices is as simple as pressing a couple of keys on the keyboard.

Shut down the laptop. Plug the VGA monitor cable from the external monitor or projector into the blue VGA port on the back of the computer. Turn on the external monitor or projector first, and then the Lenovo laptop. Allow the notebook to boot into Windows normally. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys at the same time to switch the display from the laptop to the external monitor or projector. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to enable the display on both the laptop and the external display device. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to display screen contents only on the laptop LCD. choose support you need http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54305.html http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4YQHUC.html enable tv out on thinkpad http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58625

How do i connect my hdmi cable from my ibuypower desktop to my sansung led tv?


Make sure the input on the TV is set to hdmi port 2. If it doesn't automatically view on the TV, you have to go into the graphics card adapter settings to set the view to an alternate monitor (your TV). Normally there's also a hotkey command as well (normally one of the F# keys) to switch between displays

Can you explain how can i view my advent 5421 laptop on my flatscreen tv - thanks - patrick


Hi Patrick,
If your tv has a VGA connector:

Once it's connected, you might have to change the video mode on the TV to see your computer screen.

Hope this helps!

I buy vga to rca and s video cable to conect toshiba laptop to tv and dont show grafic options how ican make work


There is a button to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor or can view on both monitors. There is a button with a drawing of two monitors, usually the F5 button. Press FN and F5 simultaneously to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor. Press them again to view both on laptop and external monitor. Press them again the third time to view only on your laptop monitor.

Linking hp pc (windows vista) with philips lcd via a hdmi and dvi cable. When computer turned on and tv uned into hdmi channel i can view windows loading but screen goes black when it has loaded and screen...


You need to set your system to output to the port the TV is on.
If it is a laptop, there is an F key to change from LCD to LCD+VIDEO to VIDEO.
If it is a desktop you need to go into your display settings (control panel or rt clk desktop/properties or whatever system you have).

Im already connect to broadband and now i am trying to add a wireless router. someone sorted it out on my last laptop but now i need to sort it out on my new laptop. please help


Right click on the tv symbol along the bottom of the screen, view available wireless networks and your desktop should be listed, giving you the option to connect, unless you have put security onto the network, in that case you should know the password.

You only need a USB port these days. TV Tuner adapters for laptops are available for laptops.

You can find reviews of these offerings here, and make you own choice which to get.
