    I can only see the top left corner of my laptop, about the size of a half dollar coin. On the external monitor i plugged in the only thing I see is my desktop background. No icons, cant see the mouse arrow, or the start button

You somehow changed your display settings to show desktop and not what it normally should be which is to mimic what you normally see on your laptop's lcd screen. You can do this by going to start_control panel_display settings or right click on the desktop and click properties then click display settings and make sure the "extend the desktop onto this monitor is checked." Make sure the cable is plugged in for the TV and is connected.

Polk computer speakers work in laptop but not on desktop computer


desktops now a days have more than one plug for the speakers. try playing some music and play which hole works.

if there is a 5.1 or surround on the desktop then most likely the light green jack isnt stereo out but rather unamplified signal. thus when you plug head phones into it the internal amp drives the headphones, but wants the computer to drive the speakers.

try plugging it into the black one... or play pick a hole till it works.

Monotor not working


Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

Here is the disassembly guide:

Hope this helps.
