Looks for a button located on your laptop that might resemble a TV or you may have a FN (Function Key) that you would simultaneously press along with a button labeled something like LCD/CRT.

Have a Gateway Notebook KAV-60 with a broken screen. Trying to connect to an external monitor without any prompts or commands, as I can't see the screen. With an Acer Netbook I just plugged in the


Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken


Hi:
Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!

Lcd monitar


If you use OS Windows, try this :
Start Menu - Control Panel - Display (double click) - in tab Setting - read this sentences :
Drag the monitor icons to match the physical arrangement of your monitor
Click in the right-mouse on screen 1, click in "Attached". May be you can see LCD. Or, try this : you need monitor CRT of computer. Plug in to slot VGA inside your laptop. And restart your laptop. See in your monitor CRT. If your monitor CRT will see your display and your LCD laptop didn't see anything, it's that mean for your laptop is broken in video display onboard. Replace new one of your laptop mainboard.
Or, press button of 'Fn' and 'F3', will be switched between your LCD laptop or other monitor in your slot VGA.

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

THE SCREEN IS BROKEN ON LAPTOP CAN I CONNECT IT TO MAIN COMPUTER SO I CAN USE SCREEN ON THAT


You may need to press a key combo to switch displays. Many times this is Fn + F7 or Fn + (some F key)
You may have other problems with the system that prevent the display from working.

My screen wont turn on


Hiya, have you tried plugging in an external monitor to the Blue VGA port of the laptop ?

If so, do you get any display then ?

Hint : you need to plug in the external display 1st, then turn on the laptop. If the External monitor doesn't come on, then you may need to press the Function key on the laptop & the F4 key (Or whichever shows a monitor logo) to get the laptop to switch to external monitor.

If you CAN get display on the external monitor then the problem could either be that the Invertor for your laptop screen has blown, or, the backlight for your Laptop Screen has broken, or the Laptop screen itself has gone faulty. In rare cases, the cable from the Laptop Motherboard to the screen may be faulty or have come away form the connector on either end.

Hope this helps.

ACER X193 MONITOR DISPLAY ISSUE


Windows doesn't know your display is broken as it see's your display adapter for the laptop. By adding the monitor windows is adding a second display to the one you don't actually have, your icons and start bar are still on display 1

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged


This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
