XPS M1530 video issues


Check out the ribbon and other connectors that are powering/connected to your screen. It appears you may have an intermittent wiring situation.

Or the circuitry or keyboard switch that switches the video back and forth from screen to external output may be the culprit.

hi what you will have to do is make sure you have swapped over from the laptop monitor to the acer monitor, as you do not say what laptop it is, i will give you an example of what you have to press to do this, if you look on your laptop keyboard there is a key that has FN on it, normally on left hand side at bottom of keys ( but could be anywhere as well ) then look at the F keys at the top, and see if you have either a key with 2 monitors on it, or a picture of a side on laptop and a face on monitor this is normally key F4, it also could be F3, dependent on the laptop make, all you have to do is press FN key keeping it pressed and then press the ( either ) F4 or F3 key, or what ever key that has the monitor icons on it, this will then switch to the main monitor and disable the laptop monitor, when you want to Finnish using the external monitor, just press the keys again in that order and it will go back to normal...hope this helps

Hooking a PC to your laptop's screen


Unfortunately you cannot use a laptop screen to view output from other computer sources. As you are surely aware, you may plug another monitor into the VGA plug on the laptop to view the laptop's output, but the plug is only for the laptop's output.

Nice thought, though.

Have you tried pluging in the monitor in to the laptop before even starting the computer or Putting the computer in to "Stand by" then pluging in the monitor and then bringing the laptop out of "Stand by" or yet when you do have the computer on with the monitor pluged in, try "Fn" and a button hat has like two screens on it with a small bar in between them? All these should work.

HP Monitor comes on with bright white screen since changing PC


Try using a different wall outlet to plug in your monitor. Believe it or not this actually may help.
What ever breakers you are talking about to get the monitor going doesn't really have anything to do with the drivers. Monitors are "plug and play" meaning the drivers are installed for you when you plug it in. It"s possible you don't have the connections on securely or maybe one of the pins are bent. Does it say "restore active desktop" anywhere on your screen?
Also possible the power supply isn't strong enough for your lcd.

If the computer works with another monitor on it, it is likely a bad monitor. Try hooking the suspect up to another desktop to see if it turns on. If it doesnt turn on, you might want to call to get the monitor replaced
