Question about AOC Computers & Internet
Did you tell the laptop that you wanted to use the external monitor instead or in addition to the built-in display? There's a hot-key sequence you have to hit to engage the external display. In addition you may need to update the drivers for the HDMI. Some computers you can right-click on the desktop and select "Graphics Properties" and tell Windows which display port to use. Basically it sounds like a configuration issue where you're going to have to figure out how to tell Windows to use the HDMI port.

Not sure what the problem is, but I would suggest pressing the Fn+F5? There is a function key that toggles from dual screen, just the laptop screen or just the monitor. Hope that helps..

The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.
Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.
If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.
Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.
If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.
If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

inside the power pack is a pulse IC chip they fail and cause all kinds of havoc also caps can cause issues unaccounted for, I would start at replacement of the IC about 2 dollars on E bay, and replace any bad capacitors you can see, they look domed or are leaking color from the top creases. after that get back with me and we can either proceed or you can rate me fixya, have a great weekend

SOURCE: Nothing on the screen at startup
If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

The problem can be the lamp assemblies also, it will be hard to verify unless you have test lamps to find out if it is the lamps or the inverter problem, that is one of the first thing I check first if the board has no sign of damage. I save a lot of lamp assemblies for testing purpose.
