Re: nx 5000 dual screen problem

What program are you using for the dual setup? Place a shortcut in startup. usually an external monitor is used in place of the laptop LCD. The Monitor may need to be #1 and the laptop LCD#2 This site may help too. Good Luck, Tim

external devices must be formatted to work properly. You can try to roll back your onboard dvd driver to an earlier version and possibly by doing so it will once again work properly

Using an external monitor with 1920x1080 resolution in my laptop

Well IF the Drivers support it then YES you can. Simply, make sure that the setup, is dual monitor, with extended desktop, active. Now, go into properties, and click, on the external screen, IF you can set this resolution, to what you wish, you will be able to do so. Both Monitors Do NOT have to be the same, usually, a laptop['s screen, resolution, isn't that large, but certain, screens and drivers, can support this. Ensure you have the most up-to-date Video drivers, for your Card.

Hp nx 5000 - memory problem

The memory modules are located at the bottom of the laptop under one of the panels.
The memory modules may be OK and may only need reseating. Then boot up the laptop to see if it works, if it doesn't work, the memory may be faulty, take it to a computer shop to get it tested.

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..

I have an A105 set up on dual screens, and it works great. As I recall, you have to do the dual screen setup in the control panel, display, settings.
