You need to configure your Display Properties to manage TV screen to get an effective connection.
Either you have a generic Video Grafic Driver add on (I'm using Intel Graphic accelerator) on your display properties either you are using a specific (NVIDIA) driver for your video card.
To check go to CP/ Display, settings Tab and in advanced you should be able to check your choice (if you don't want to go to user manual.
You can also (in CP/ Display, Settings tab configure TV as a monitor and select your option accordingly: use screen resolution on screen # 2 not over native resolution of your VIZIO screen (1080 x 960?) and be sure to use all the parameters as TV can accept.
As soon as TV is configured as per resolution and refresh etc..
check the presentation function on your PC: it's normally a FN key showing a screen icon on key top (on my Acer travelmate is FN + F5) on aspire may be it's FN + F4.
This function key will circle between: PC mail screen -> External screen (as you configured on Display settings) -> both screen.

Rt clk on the desktop, properties, settings and in settings ,enable or extend my windows desktop
In vista it's rt clk personalise, display settings, enable the 2nd monitor, if there is no second monitor, there should be, as I have been running multiple monitors from windows 95, it became an option in windows 98, before that you had to use extra video cards, as we traders did back then. But you should have the abiility to use an extra monitor with your laptop, I just looked at my vista laptop and it has it just as I explained. Unless you don't have a video card or shared video that supports it.

On many laptops you cannot use the LCD display and the external monitor at the same time, as the BIOS control function excludes either one when you press the associated function key.

To switch to external monutor you use <FN><F4> or do the following:

Right click on any empty space on the desktop
properties
settings
advanced
ATI Displays
click the red power icon next to monitor.
chose apply

This will disable the built in LCD, therefore you cannot use both at the same time.

There is some confusion here. Are you using your Viewsonic as your only monitor, instead of your laptop screen, or are you using it as a second monitor, using your laptop screen at the same time?

If you are using it as a second monitor, you description indicates all is well so far, it is normal for the second monitor to only show another copy of the wallpaper. In order to show things on the second monitor you must drag them over, the same way you drag anything else on your screen. Support for two monitors is rather limited. Generally programs display okay, assuming your video card supports two monitors, but programs don't remember the position you last closed them in very often.

Click on your graphics card on the bottom right on your display and then you can open up the program and then you can set it up to show dual monitors' that should do it for you.

First, your video card has to have the ability to serve two monitors it is not a standard feature. You have to look on the Microsoft website and see if your card supports it. There are articles on the proper hardware you need and the steps to do it in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

When using dual monitors the 2nd monitor will only show the wall paper by default. TO show anything else you must drag it over. This includes desktop icons as well.

Hi, that is as its supposed to be, you can move your windows to the other monitor by draging them off one of the sides of the main display and it appears on the 2nd one.

Give me password for compaq evo n600c


You can remove your bios password by reseting your CMOS battery or jamper. You need to open your notebook remove first the battery and all screw at the back of your notebook. You can see there a CMOS battery together with the CMOS jamper. Just read it you can read CLRSCR which means clear cmos, just pull it with in 10 seconds and insert it back. Now you are done to reset bios.

I do believe that there is no wireless switch on that model. To enable or disable the card is done through software. Check your Device Manager to ensure it is enabled and or correct drivers.
