I have an external monitor hookup to my laptop @ the office. but the external monitor screen cannot be fixed. it constantly move up and down: when i have the mouse on the bottom of the screen, it moves up and vice versa. i just want it to fill the screen and not move as it gives me a headache.

Re: external monitor cannot stop moving
You need to right click on the desktop, select properties and then settings. Change the resolution to be correct (or smaller) than that of your monitor.
I suggest you start with 800x600 and then work your way up till it starts scrolling again. then go down 1 resolution.

this is not a pc problem... this is because the connection loss between pc and monitor... not all pc's have sleep mode in externa vga connection.... it just cuts power off... u can configure monitor of possible to do that..
It is not a question of monitor capabilities, it's down to what the video driver on your laptop is capable of. First try to make it show video on both monitors - usually it's Fn + function key that has "crt/lcd" on it or an icon of a display hotkey pressed once for laptop only, again for both, and again for external only) and then play with the desktop settings to have the desktop extend to your external monitor, instead of showing the same picture on both. Then you can move an application window out of your notebook screen to your external monitor.
What have you tried so far?
Connect your laptop to an external monitor to see if it is the adapter or the screen that is broken. Toggle on to the external monitor. If the external monitor works, you'll know it is the laptop screen(or a component of it) that needs repair
Check your laptop latch to see if it is broken.
Hi, Your laptop resolution is greater than the external monitor can handle. From your laptop, try changing the screen resolution to 800x600, if it works, up the ante to 1024x768. You can bring it up again until you find a comfortable screen resolution. You will eventually stop to a point when your external monitor displays about 80% of the laptop screen. That is, back to your original problem. But you get the idea. Cheers!
To use the external vga connector of a laptop, you have to activate it. In many notebooks it is Funtion and F7 (Fn-F7). In your notebook it may be F5 or F6, look for a monitor sigh in the F keys.
The activation may sometimes rotate in sequence , ie, External + LCD, LCD, External... and so on.
