    I have the HP 2207 monitor. I cannot view the entire screen either up or across unless the whole screen moves. It didn't do this before, but when I moved the desk and reattached everything, now the screen moves and I cannot view the start button or the time unless I move the mouse to scroll sideways or up and down.

    How do I fix this?

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.

Can I use just the upstream hookup to connect an external monitor to my laptop? Also need to replace power cord. was not included Not the output needed Pwr rating says 12v dc 5.5a. That's all.

I use either VGA or HDMI connectors to connect to an external monitor.
I'm not sure what you're asking on the "power cord". Are you asking about the charging "brick" and such? Or?

Does the LB 23" monitor not have the capability to allow me to view one file on the LB monitor and another file on my notebook monitor?

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.

We have the monitor hooked to a docking station for a laptop. I can not view the screen on the Viewsonic, but does display on laptop. I have been able to do an extende monitor view, but not the main view....

when you connect external monitor to a laptop u get two options in the monitor section of graphic properties tab

1.) extended
2.) clone

it is clear from ur post that u are using extended view

try using clone mode then both laptop screen and external monitor will show the main screen

other method is to disable the laptop screen and just allow external monitor to work, in this case laptop screen shows nothing but external monitor shows main screen

Nec laptop screen not displayin

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.

Settings for dcl lcd monitor

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!

The monitor cant view video

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.
