You have to go into your graphics settings and set the video output to the external monitor. If you don't it will just display out to the laptop monitor.

SOURCE: can't connect to external monitor or to Sony

You need to:

- Connect everything with the laptop turned off
- Boot the laptop
- Use the Fn key plus F8 or F9 (I'm trying from a small picture of the keyboard!) to cycle through the external display options.

SOURCE: Hi I have a Acer

The inverter/backlight combination isn't the whole picture. The inverter powers the backlight, but the inverter is controlled by a signal commonly called "Brite-On", which comes from the motherboard. If the "Bright -On" signal from the motherboard is missing,then the inverter (and thus the backlight) won't work. The problem you are having is on the motherboard. here's a link to a datasheet of such a device:

The lines on the screen point to a failing graphics chip, faulty VGA lead or more probably, the screen itself beginning to fail.
The bios problem is most likely due to a damaged bios chip, this is usually caused by attempting to upgrade the bios by flashing and the flash process going wrong, resulting in a series of instructions on the bios chip being incorrect. Changing the Cmos battery will have no effect.

You need to reflash the bios with a stable version, this can be done via floppy drive or USB stick, but you will need to obtain a usb floppy drive (I THINK the bios on the laptop supports this). On the floppy drive, you will need to install a windows 98 type boot disc
http://www.bootdisk.com/

and obtain the bios and flash file for this laptop
http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/downloads.html ( dos version)

On another computer, copy both to separate floppies, boot to the floppy drive, let it load the OS then swap floppies and load the bios flash from floppy

I believe that you can also get the ISO (cd image) which, as long as the laptop can read the cd drive, will be a better option.

If you cannot even get the bios to recognise the floppy or cd, then the problem will need a replacement bios chip installing to sort it out

SOURCE: Problem connecting Dell D610 operating on Windows XP to TV. Nothing on screen when VGA & S-Video connections tried

OK ..the first thing you should check is the video driver to be installed..cause even if the main display will work without the video driver ...(only with the standard one from the operation system ) , the secondary monitor will not ...so ..check if you have the latest driver installed ..and if it is working ..If you are not sure of it ..just get to the manufacturer site ..and select the model of the laptop and the operation system ..and download the driver again and run it into the system ..restart and now you will know for sure you have it ..
The next action is to try to activate the secondary monitor ..in case it is not activated..This is done from the settings of the video driver....either select video settings from the control panel ..or ..just click right on the desktop ..and select properties..and than settings ..(the last in the right 0 ..In there you have the video settings /display ..
Open them ..and you should see 2 monitors displayed...The no 1 is the one you see on the laptop ..and no 2 is the one needed to be activated.
Click ..on the secondary ...and click activate ...and select a way to function ...as a clone ..or extension ..(cloning means you will see the exact same thing on both ...and extension means that your secondary monitor will act like an extension of the primary one ..and you can set its position by dragging it ..and you can go with the mouse from one to another if you point on the edge between them depending on the position you select in the settings..)
In short ..the important thing is to enable the secondary monitor ..and after that set it as you need..
Usually ..there is a hot key for to enable the monitor ..and it has a monitor sign on it ..and if you press Fn + hot key ..it enables it automatically ..this key can be F5 or F4 or F8 or F10 ..depending on the model and settings .....Please rate teh answer if it helps...have a nice day !

SOURCE: got an acer aspire 5735z laptop, its running but got a black screen

It only means that either the Inverter Cable/LCD cable or the LCD itself is defective, because if you still see the contents of the laptop to an external monitor, then it means that the rest of the computer's components are working.
You can have the Inverter Cable reseated or have the LCD screen replaced. Have it tested by a local technician.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply


  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

Samsung syncmaster 275t won't start - what to do?


The Samsung monitor is okay, the problem is a compatability issue between the laptop and monitor. The VGA toDVI is the problem you are converting a analog signal to digital, the signal level degrades when that is attempted. If I understand this the laptop puts out the analog signal "VGA" and the monitor has the DVI input, "digital" The only other suggestion is turn off the laptop screen to see if the monitor will work.

Can i connect two monitors to a nvidia geforce 315 card so as too use two monitors


hi,
yes the 315 desktop card does have multi monitor support. you may however need an adapter for one monitor as it only has one dvi ,one hdmi and one vga.
so you can hook up any 2 as a combination but they have different plug configurations to do this

hope this helps

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

Have refurbished Dell Optiplex gx280. Plugged Dynex VGA display cable in & got nothing. Still only seeing the Dell Digital Input Self Test Feature Check bounce around the screen, as if the computer is...


Hi!

If you are able to use a known good monitor with Dell Optiplex GX280, obviously the problem is with the monitor. If you only have one monitor, try to reseat the cable from the monitor going to the blue port if its analog (white port if its digital). if it does the same thing tried to open the chassis then reseat the video card (check this site for the instruction for the manual, http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx280/en/ug/index.htm)
if you still dont get anything on the screen, most likely the problem would be the video card.

If you tried to connect the monitor to a laptop make sure to toggle it using FN and F8. Toggle it three times and observe if you'll be able to see display either on one screen or both. if you're able to see something on the laptop and nothing on the monitor then its a problem with the monitor.

Hope this helps!
