Assuming that you are using Windows Vista, and the monitor is plugged in and connected correctly (with power on!), right click on your desktop, and select Personalise, and then Display Settings. You will see the second monitor greyed out. Right click on the greyed out monitor and select "Attached". Click Apply. The monitor should now be activated.
Sometimes, there are specific graphics card programs loaded on laptops, such as NVIDIA etc.. which may also control the settings.

Black screen death

non working ram leads to no boot at all or crashes. if ur laptop able to boot but unable to detect the built in monitor while at the same time detects external monitor just fine then the problem probably lies on the built in monitor itself or probably some lose cable between the mainboard and the monitor. i can assure u the GPU is working fine. if u can locate the RAM, it doesn't hurt to check them out tho. try reverting to stock ram by removing the newly installed ones and see.

My screen on my hp latop is completely black.. my screen will not come one but all of my lights are on.. what should i do

replace the screen. Check on Ebay for a similar laptop, or do a search on google for the same size screen. Your best bet if you want to do the repair job cheaply is to shop outside of Australia, you may wait longer for the item to arrive but it could potentially save you $$$.

Compaq presario 700 monitor off

Maybe, depending on the problem. Laptop monitor problems fall into three categories. 1. Screen electronics or lamp. 2. Inverter. 3. Laptop video chip. I've been repairing latops ever since they arrived on the market. First connect an external monitor to the laptop - this will show you whether or not the laptop motherboard is working correctly. If it is then you'll need to replace either the screen or the inverter. So as not to waste alot of money, at this point I would suugest going to a reputable repair person or check my website

Connecting a laptop to an LCD

your best bet f or picture quality is to use a standard monitor cable VGA or DVI output on your latop like a normal desktop PC, if it's a flat large TFT TV they normaly have one or both of these types. S-Vidia is poor quality compared.

Adjusting your duel display will depend on the graphics card in the laptop and the drivers.

The sound will be simple, a standard 3.5 jack to phono (red and white connections) or to 3.5 jack. it really depends what your going to plug it into for sound, it's it's a hifi then phono is the way to go. you can buy these cables from places like dixons, or any other good electrical retailer, or ofcourse online.

Toshiba tecra 8100 no display

this problem occurs in the video chipset,because when you hook up the external vga there is no display right?
if you hook up the vga into the monitor it would come display if the problem only with inverter or lcd.
