Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor
I have connected the monitor to the jack on the back of my Dell laptop. All lights on all devices are on. When I go to turn on my monitor screen, it displays "No Signal" and then the light on the monitor turns orange.
It DID work, on the laptop, for a couple of times when I first brought it home. It works perfectly on the PC at the office. However, we closed the business and I inherited the screen. I would like very much to use the larger screen, as the laptop screen, over time, hurts my eyes. Can you please help?
You have to activate the video out of the laptop.
Two ways to do this depending on how you want to use the monitor.
To use the monitor by itself laptops have shortcut keys.
Usually they involve using the Fn key and one of the F keys (Usually F3-F4-F5) KEy will either show two screens or say CRT-LCD
Pushing both keys at once will switch you to both screens, pushed again will just run the monito, Pushed again will return you to the laptop screen.
If you want to use the monitor as an extension of the monitor to be able to drag windos over to it then go to your display properties from the control panel and activate the monitor in the settings box. You'll have to click the monitor first then activate it as a extension and adjust the resolution here.
