Question about LG L1530S 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Two monitors, one computer....

I have a laptop (Toshiba w/ ATi graphics) which has a port to connect a second monitor. I tried connecting my LG L1530S 15" LCD Monitor, but it doesn't quite work. The monitor aknowledges being connected, but the computer doesn't seem to know it's there, and hence sends it no information. Any advice?

Gateway with 2 data ports

The "Connect monitor to alternate video port" message suggests that it is the motherboard video port. Since your computer has a video graphics card, the motherboard connections are disabled in the BIOS. (This avoids conflicts.)

Many video cards have several display ports each of a different type (VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort (less likely on a low-end desktop)) . Some of these cards can drive two monitors at the same time. Look at where your current monitor is connected, then consider an adapter to connect the second monitor to that video card. (For example, a DVI to VGA adapter will let you connect a VGA monitor cable to the DVI port.) Some DVI ports will let you run two monitors from the one port with a splitter.

Gateway has support documents for their computers here: . You'll need to use the model number and look for the User's Guide, Top Answers and support documents tabs.

The only way to use the blocked port would be to enable it in the BIOS (usually press F2 on start up for Gateways). Press this key repeatedly from power on until it responds. I frequently miss the timing, just shut down and try again. However, first you would need to remove the graphics card drivers (uninstall program (Catalyst for AMD/ATI) and the drivers) from your Windows OS. Then remove the graphics card from the desktop. Since this requires opening the computer, you will need to be careful to remain grounded relative to the computer. (Use a ground strap or work carefully touching a metal surface of the case.)

Please add a comment with your computer's model number and I'll be glad to give you specifics on running two monitors from your system.

I hope this helps.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?

the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

LG LCD Monitor L1530S problems

Most screens will show nothing or go to power saving mode until the PC is turned on. The monitors need a signal in order to be 'active'.
From your description it could just as well be a problem with the PC rather than the monitor. The easiest way to find out is to connect another PC or laptop to the screen or connect another monitor to the PC unit.

Did you try pressing the Del key or F2 key when you turn on the unit to get into the Bios?

Low brightness on second monitor using Radeon X1300 video adapter

According to the X1300 specifications here it does support multiple displays. The option to configure the display is found in the Catalyst application. Do you have the latest version of that? You can get it from their website.

Configuring Laptop for Flat TV S-Video Connection.


Connect the second monitor to the blue VGA port. Download catalyst control center from the below link and install it. Using catalyst control center, you can configure dual monitor. You may need to check 'force tv detection' setting in catalyst control center.

Revert back for any clarifications.

3 monitors on dell vostro 200

Go to your bios and check if your bios allow that. Usually if you connect a card on the motherboard slot automatically the on board card becomes unavailable.
If your bios doesn't allow to make changes you can add another pci video card or connect some vga split signal to get the image on 3, 4, or more monitors with a single device.
