Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

How to use external monitor on a toshiba laptop with external monitor


It's probably best to buy a keyboard off auction sites or a new screen, the Function keys are not OS sensitive so a different keyboard will not work with them, they are device specific and require special drivers to operate.
Are keys broken or are they just missing? the membrane will still work to a firm press even if the key is missing.

keyboards can be found on auction sites

sorry I can't help more.

My Sony Vaio VGN NR32Z computer screen remains black, even though the startup lights are lighting up and the noise is the same, what is wrong?


Hello there, Do you by any chance hook your computer up to an external monitor/tv? In any case, if you are able to hook the computer up to an external monitor, you should try that. Just to see if you get a picture there.
Also, On your keyboard there is a key called "Fn" (Usally near the bottom left-side) If you hold that key down, And look for a key with a small sun shaped object. (Usally on the number key's and one for tuning up, and one for down.) Hold down "Fn" and press the "up" Brightness. ("Sun"-key)
If that does not work it is very likley that its 1 of 3 problems.
1. Your computer's screen has a broken Backlight. (Basicly a flourecent lighbaulb. You can check by turning the light down in the room and pay REALLY close attention to your screen, Since everything is still displayed on it. It is just Extremely dark.
2. A cable might have gotten disconnected between your motherboard (GFX) and your monitor. Since you will most likley void any warranty if you open up your computer i suggest you leave that to someone who is fairly familiar with what they are going to find inside. However there is a small chance that you can get a picture by adjusting the screen back and fourth a bit.
3. The actual screen is broken, or the Graphic-card. And that is not an easy fix. and requiers a well trained techie to fix (And addition hardware).

My laptop ( sony viao laptop) fell and now once turned on I have a black screen all lights and sounds are good. Could this be a led disconnect problem or a video card situation. What type of video card...


Unlikely to be a vga cable loose, but you can check by removing the switch panel cover and the screen to check it is still firmly housed.

test the laptop first in an external monitor, if you get an image, then the graphics chip is still ok

This then points to the screen, may appear undamaged, closer inspection with a torch, shone through the back of it will show any cracks you do not see straight away.

If the screen will not light up, fault is probably with a damaged backlight or inverter, you are then looking at a new (or 2nd hand) screen

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken


Hi:
Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!

Sony Viao Display Problem


Sounds like you have some internal issues going on with this Laptop! If you are getting the same response when you connect an external monitor, then you more than likely have a few things going on here: A bad VGA port for starters, Issues with the Data card, and your graphic card is cetainly not helping. In addition you may want to check appropriate drivers as they are sometimes updated! But my best guess is that you are having issues internally! That could be costly! Sorry!
