How do i switch to external monitor


Virtually all IBM and Lenovo ThinkPad and ThinkCenter laptops allow you to hook up an additional monitor or projector to the computer. When you add an external monitor or projector to your notebook, you can choose to view the display on the computer, on the external device, or on both the laptop and the external monitor or projector at the same time. Toggling between viewing devices is as simple as pressing a couple of keys on the keyboard.

Shut down the laptop. Plug the VGA monitor cable from the external monitor or projector into the blue VGA port on the back of the computer. Turn on the external monitor or projector first, and then the Lenovo laptop. Allow the notebook to boot into Windows normally. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys at the same time to switch the display from the laptop to the external monitor or projector. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to enable the display on both the laptop and the external display device. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to display screen contents only on the laptop LCD. choose support you need http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54305.html http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4YQHUC.html enable tv out on thinkpad http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58625

I have a hp laptop. was on line and screen went black. and will not show again. it strats up sounds but black screen.what do i do


1) Do you have a VGA monitor that you can use for an external monitor?
{VGA monitor is also referred to as a CRT monitor. Looks like a small TV}

The back of the laptop, or side, has a VGA port. The VGA monitor is plugged into it.
{Laptop off}
Then the VGA monitor is turned on, and allowed to 'come to life'.

Now turn on the laptop. Press the Fn key down on the keyboard, and hold it down.
Now press the Monitor toggle over key.
Since you did not state the HP laptop Model Name, and Model Number, I can only give you generic guidance on this.

The monitor toggle over key has a monitor screen symbol on it. It will be one of the F keys.

(It's an External Monitor toggle key.
Press it one time and the display toggles over to an external monitor.
Press it again, and both the laptop LCD screen, and the external monitor have a display on them.
Press it once more, and the display goes back to the laptop's LCD screen )

If display shows up on the external monitor, you have a problem with the display of the laptop.

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is used as an additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp {Bulb}
Similar to the fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

{Average Backlight is 3 to 5 inches long, and half the diameter of a No.2 pencil.
The Backlight is located on one edge of the LCD screen}

An Inverter is used to provide power for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 percent of the time the problem is the Inverter.

Inverters are relatively cheap, and if I knew the Model Name, and Model Number of your HP laptop, I could give you a link to HP Support where you could download the Service Manual for free.

This way you would have a manual to show, and detail how to replace the Inverter, and I could guide you.

I could also give links for your perusal for Inverters.

There is one more thing however.

HP Pavilion DV2000, DV6000, and DV9000 series laptops, have a graphics chip overheating problem.
The laptop comes on, the blue indicator LED lights light up, but the LCD screen is black.

This video explains why, shows a solution to fixing the problem, and details out a lot more than I am privileged to state here,

I have an hp pavillion laptop that has not worked in a few months first the screen was black when you turned it on. now i can see the screen somewhat but not 100% its dim please help


Have you tried connecting an external monitor? If an external monitor works good, then you'll have to replace your lcd screen. You may be able to replace it yourself. You can purchase a service manual for you laptop online through ebay. If not then it's going to be your internal display adapter and that will require a trip to the shop.

Compaq 610 when i start vdu is white screen and


hI,
if the screen is completely white the problem could be a bad LCD cable. To cross check if the problem with the LCD or the motherboard. Connect an external monitor to the laptop. Tap the Fn + F8 key together to get the display to toggle to the external monitor if the display comes on the external monitor without any problems the problem is with the LCD and you would have to take the laptop for repairs.

Thanks for using Fixya

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.


Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

How do i set my acer travel mate 2312lm to 1440 by 900 pixel so i can work my lcd tv


**Your Laptop has VGA port for connecting external monitors :

Laptop Video Specs :

Laptop's Max Resolution1024 x 768
Integrated Video card : SiS Mirage M661MX

NOTE : If LCDTV does not have a VGA port, you will not be able to use it a external monitor.

Steps :
1. Connect Laptop to LCDTV using a VGA Cable
2. Right-click on your desktop and select "Properties." (or click on start > Control Panel > Display)
3. A new window displaying several tabs will appear. Select the tab called "Settings."
4. You will see boxes with numbers on the middle, in your case 1 and 2 will be present.

5. Click on 2 and click on box beside "Extend my windows Desktop onto this monitor" then choose the resolution that you like (1440 by 900) then click on apply. If 1440 by 900 is not available, choose the closest under 1440 by 900. Don't go over 1440 by 900 since that is the max value that will work on you LCD TV.

6. After clicking on Apply, the display should be present on the LCD TV. (The disply is an extended desktop so you will not see the start button nor the taskbar on the LCD TV. but it should have the same wallpaper. You can Drag the windows to the LCDTV. This will serve as an extension of you desktop. (Ex : You can watch movie on the LCDTV and you can do documents on the laptop's screen at the same time).

I am trying to use my plasma tv as a screen to watch my movies from my computer. i have a acer plasma or lcd not sure. and i have a acer laptop.


First of all you will need an SVGA monitor cable (male-male) like this one on Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/2M-SVGA-Monitor-Cable-MALE/dp/B000J1J790

Then plug it into your laptop and TV. On the Acer you may also have to press the fuction key and f4 or f5 (this changes which monitor displays the computers output)

Hope this was helpful

I have hp pavilion dv6226us and when booted up the screen stays dark. You can see display only if you shine a light onto the screen. I tried to turn up the brightness and did't have any luck.


The VGA card or the VGA driver is not properly installed,perhaps.Try reinstalling the driver.
If you suspect the monitor brightness controls then try fiddling with them untill the brightness is good enough.
Check monitor cable also(VGA).

My laptop foll down and display is broken what can i do with that


Hello janavesel

You can connect an external monitor to your laptop to ensure that everything else is OK w/ it. (And to determine if the laptop monitor is actually damaged or broken.)

If you still do not see any display on the external monitor then there are other issues w/ your computer that may or may not include the monitor.

Please, let us know what happens when you use an external monitor and we'll help you to proceed w/ trouble-shooting the problem further.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
