Can't get pic back on my Lap top after using nvidia & ext monitor

Used Nvidia to utilize External Monitor, Now I can't get anything on my lap top screen, I'm SCREWED! It only has the option of the 2207 Hp monitor when you look for displays... Don't know what else to do. Originally it had the option of HP2207 + lap top display, clone, or one or the other, that's how I got it that way in the beginning! The fn F4 hot keys wouldn't work, that's why I went into the nvidia setting (with guidance from the Hp support people)... now they won't help me get it back, because I'm out of warrantee. If I can get it back I'll set it up to clone so I don't run into this problem again.

p.s. he had me download the most recent of all the drivers (I have the GeForce 7600 something Nvidia.

How to switch the meso lap top to external monitor

If you have an external monitor with VGA interface and you have a VGA monitor cable then should simply plug it into the netbook VGA socket and reboot. The monitor should then start up and can be used as a screen. If you are using Windows then you can right click mouse on screen to select display properties and configure the resolution and profile of the setup.

Check whether blue lines are present in bios screen, if Present then Hardware issue

If Blue line not present in bios screen, Software issue = Restore system back to factory settings

Connect External Monitor, use Fn + F8 to extend display on external Monitor ,

if display is fine on Ext Monitor = Replace LCD Kit

if Blue lines are displayed, on Ext Monitor = Replace Motherboard

My color on my lap top went to purple you could still see every thing its just primarily purple. How can I fix this?

power on laptop keep tapping F8 then select last known good configuration. if fails then boot in safe mode then uninstall then reinstall video driver. if fails then connect laptop to an external monitor check if the display is purple from the ext monitor then if yes this might replace motherboard if not then LCD is the problem.

MY Dell Inspiron 8600 all of a sudden the LCD only comes up white

There will be a function switch to select the view mode ( Lap top monitor only/ LCD only / Lap top monitor and LCD Monitor) Select either the last two.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Dvi port doesn't work with 23'' samsung monitor

yeah, you can set the display setting as extension display your DVI

Intel, ATI,Nvidia have tools also to set up,

i have ATI and use the ATI Catalyst tools and autodetect the monitors that i connected to my docking station, intel and nvidia also have this utility.

it depends on setting if u wanted the external monitor as CLONE monitor of your laptop or extension Monitor...

or they might have problem on DVI port of your docking station.

download and install the video utility ( must have .net installed before you install the utility)

the utility will detect your video ports (VGA,DVI,S-video)

let me know the update ..

Monitor not coming on

Are you sure it's just the monitor, can you hear the Windows sound prompt when it starts? If you have an external monitor, connect it and see if the machine works properly, or if it's not starting at all. Try the external, get back to me, and we'll go from there.
