Split screen on the monitor

My monitor is split into two pictures. i know most monitors have settings that allows you to do this. but its split in the most inconvenience of ways. it splits horizontally and shows half of the picture and when you go into the settings theirs no way of changing it. i'm wondering if this a simple wiring problem or a component problem.

SOURCE: image set up of screen is only half of the monitor

If you v-size is already at 100% then the issue is with the picture being sent to the monitor. Based upon what kind of input you have for the monitor there is a number of different ways to fix this. I will assume you are using the monitor with a desktop computer. If this is for XP, then there is a simple fix as follows, adjusting your display properties:
Right-click on your desktop background and then click on "Properties" this will open up a new window. Select the "Settings" tab, then drag the green arrow in the "Screen Resolution" field to the desired setting. Since you have a "widescreen set-up" you more than likely have a resolution where the first number is about twice the second number...they should be close to even to have a square image (bigger numbers show more detail than smaller numbers).
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: hi, I have my macbook connected

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

Connecting a monitor to your MBP gives you more space to work on. You may want to check on the following and see if it was done properly :

  • Ensure physical connection - either mini DVI or mini DVI-VGA will work
  • Turn on the mirror mode by pressing "F7" or "Fn+F7"
  • Adjust the resolution of the monitor through the system preferences or the "Display status" in the menu bar
  • Put the macbook into "Sleep mode" to obtain the full (optimum) resolution on the AOC monitor
  • Keep the lid of the laptop open to access kybd and track pad
  • To boot the computer using the AOC monitor, turn on the computer and close the lid of the laptop at once.
Please let me know if this wont work.

Thank you for using Fixya.

How do i fix a split screen of my Toshiba c600d-t36b laptop


The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
connected):
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop

I have a Dell 1704 FPVt monitor I use it in conjunction with an touch board with a monitor split cable. when I plug the team board in the dell monitor goes blank. It doesn't do this with the old m


Isolate the problem per above. Eliminate the monitor, split cable and software settings so that each, individually work. Then eliminate team board - do you have a spare?
It could mean sharing the monitor signal means weakens it so that one can display and the other does not work. Prove it with a different source computer. Don't know if buffer devices exist or how to increase input sensitivity.

I cannot get any sound through my tv from my acer ao531 notebook i have a picture but no sound


Try these options
1. Click on sound icon in Taskbar and make sure sound is up on HDMI volume. If this doesn't exist-
2. Start => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound. Under Sound tab click on Manage Audio Devices, right click on HDMI tab and enable. Or this: Computers have two seperate systems - one for video and one for sound.

The only computer (or laptop) connection that carries both video and sound is HDMI. If you do not have a HDMI/DVI connector on the back of your computer, then you will have to use the VGA-composite or s-video connectors to display your PC's output on an external monitor like an LCD TV.

On both my HP and Dell laptops the display settings (Start/Control Panel/Personalize/Display Settings) allow two modes - single or dual monitor mode. Single monitor mode allows me to switch between any one of three possible video outputs - VGA-composite, S-Video or laptop screen, or a split-desktop (display spread over two seperate monitors). Dual monitor mode allows the same display on any two of three possible video outputs.

Switching is performed using the fn keys on the keyboard (fn key plus the F2, F8, etc. function key with the display marking). You guys use single monitor mode until you figure out what your are doing. Select VGA-composite or S-Video.

Non-HDMI sound to your TV monitor or sound system must be obtained from your laptop's Headphone or S/PDIF jacks. Headphone is stereo and S/PDIF is 5.1 surround sound. Headphone is electrical, but S/PDIF may be electrical or optical (laser light). You must set the sound jack that you intend to use as the default on the PC control panel (Start/Control Panel/Sound).

None of these connectors is two-way in the context of an LCD monitor - your PC cannot record a TV picture or sound from the external monitor. To accomplish this you must purchase a video converter box that converts cable TV or video+sound inputs to USB format usable by your laptop. Do this and you can turn your laptop into a Tivo recorder/DVD burner using Beyond TV, Sage TV or a variety of other software packages.

Hello, 2 monitors running off d600 loptop one moniter not picking up windows wat is the problem help p'se


Hi. I hope this helps.

You need to open display properties, click on advanced, and make sure that the video adapter settings are configured to allow more than one monitor. some diplay adapters will only run on one monitor, some will allow cloning, where the same thign is displayed on both monitors, some allow span, which allows the total display to be split between the two monitors, and another setting to allow one to be the primary, and the second monitor for applications.

Also, check to make sure that on your power settings, you don't have it configured to power down monitors if not active. This can sometimes cause the second display to shut down when there is not an active signal going to it, and upon resumng it can cause the second display to not restart as it is supposed to.

Also, check each monitor seperately, having only one hooked up at a time, to ensure that the monitor isn't the problem. This is especially true if you are using flat screen monitors. They are notorious for working one minute, and the next they just quit. Almost all flat screen monitors..i.e. lcd, plasma, and dlp have capacitors that precharge to energize the screen, and those capacitors are quite prone for going out without warning.

I hope this helps you out.

Lcd screen is split howing the whole picture


Check the same in bios if it gives the same issue, it is something to do with graphics card. You may try to disconnect the monitor from the computer, it will show a message, if the message also is split then its a monitor issue.
