How to change orientation of monitor


I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.

1) Screen has turned on monitor?

Press the CTRL key, and ALT key down at the same time.
Now tap on the Left Side Arrow key, until the screen is oriented correctly again.

2) Screen on monitor has shifted left, right, top, or bottom?
Use the controls on the monitor to set it correctly again.

3) Using dual monitors?
Right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on Settings.

The monitor 1 icon is supposed to be your Primary monitor.
The monitor 2 icon is the Secondary monitor.

Ordinarily the Primary monitor is on the LEFT side, and the Secondary monitor is on the RIGHT side.
Just as shown in the Settings window.

If you wish to move a monitor to the other side, go to the monitor icon you wish to move.

Put your mouse cursor on the monitor icon you wish to move.
Left-click, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now drag the monitor icon you wish to move, to the other side.

Not doing it for you?
Then post in a Comment with more exacting information, as what it is that you wish to do.

Tip

How to resize your desktop background.


If your desktop is smaller than the dimensions of your monitor then follow the following steps to get a full screen:

Setting the resolution:

1) Right click on an open spot on your desktop and select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu.
slasher_x_35.jpg

2) This will then open up the Display Properties window as shown below.
slasher_x_36.jpg

3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right of the Display Properties window as shown in the image below.
slasher_x_37.jpg

4) At the bottom left of the settings tab there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left or right until you find the resolution you like.
6) The click Apply when you have found the right resolution.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.
NB: If you are using a CRT (older screen) the max resolution will be around 1280x1024. Newer LCD screen (flat and thin monitors) can go way up to 1920x1080 and beyond if HD is supported.

NOTE: If when doing the screen resolution changes your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key to restore it back to your previous settings

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

This tip is useful when you plug in a monitor and the screen displays the No Signal or Signal out of Range massages. Simply change the resolution to something the monitor can handle and there you go.

I have a Dell Inspiron 531S, I have both two different monitor slot, does my PC support dual monitor systems?


Yes.

The area on the back of the computer, that has two ports to connect a monitor, is a Graphics Card.

It is a PCI-Express graphics card, and is plugged into a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard.
(Expansion Slot)

It has a blue VGA port, white DVI port, and black S-Video port.

The area on the upper left with a blue outline around a VGA port, is a VGA port connected directly to the motherboard. It is Integrated Graphics.

You CANNOT use Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card at the same time.

It's either use the Integrated Graphics VGA port, OR use the graphics port/s on the graphics card.
BIOS will Not support using both Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card.

HOWEVER, you can use the VGA port, and the DVI port when using two monitors.
You will be only using just the graphics card.

Example of a VGA port, (Connector), and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Example of a DVI port, and DVI cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVI_connector


1) Whatever monitor you have that has a VGA cable, plug it into the blue VGA port on the graphics card.

(There are VGA monitors {CRT} that resemble a small TV. VGA cable is usually attached.
There are also LCD flat screens that have a VGA connector, for a VGA cable, and may also have both a VGA, and a DVI connector.

To digress for a moment;
VGA is Analog. It uses an Analog video signal.
DVI is digital. It uses a Digital video signal.

A computer naturally puts out a digital video signal. This digital signal has to be converted by the computer, into analog for an analog monitor. This slows the graphics process down. This is one reason it is best to use digital )

2) Plug a monitor with a DVI cable into the white DVI port on the graphics card.

3) Turn the monitors on.

4) Turn the Inspiron 531s on.

5) When Windows has loaded, right-click on an empty area of your desktop computer screen.
Now left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You are now looking at a small window that has two monitor icons in it.
Monitor 1 icon, and monitor 2 icon.

Monitor 1 icon is your Primary Display.
Monitor 2 icon will be for the Secondary Display you are adding.

Note how monitor 1 icon is sitting to the Left, and monitor icon 2 is sitting to the Right.
This is how your monitors are supposed to be arranged on your computer desk.

If the second monitor is on the Left on your computer desk, you need to move the icons around.
Move monitor 2 icon to the Left.

Left-click on the icon, hold the left mouse key down, and drag the monitor 2 icon over to the left side of monitor 1 icon. (All the way over, or it will snap back to where it was)

It may matter to you how your monitors are arranged. It may not. Once you read the following it may help you decide.

7) Left-click on monitor icon 2 if you have not already done so.
Go down to where it states, "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

8) Left-click once in the empty square, to the left of Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor.

9) Now left-click on Apply at the bottom Right corner.

10) Finally left-click on OK at the bottom Left corner.

You should now see your desktop screen on both monitors.

When using the internet on both monitors, you have to drag the screen from the Primary monitor to the Secondary monitor.

Go to the left side of the screen. Left-click right on the edge of the blue frame. Hold the left mouse key down after you click, and drag the screen across to the left.

Doesn't work?
Go to the right side, click on the blue frame, and drag the screen to the right.

This is why it may matter how the monitors are arranged on your computer desk.

It's kind of eerie your first time dragging the screen across.

You will also find out why it is best to use two similar monitors, when using dual monitors. The pixel resolution is different for both monitors, if they are different from each other.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

The picture on my Compaq monitor shifted 1 inch to the left. There is a one inch black space on the right side. I have a HP Compaq d530 CMT


click menu button on monitor. you will see a series of Icons (or scroll through a series of Icons) and one will be a square with a smaller square inside it that is half inside the larger and half out. Navigate to that Icon. Use the + or - buttons to move the screen in either direction until it evens out. Use + or - button to navigate back to exit and and then press menu button to exit screen. Or, sometimes you simply push the menu button a second time. These 3 buttons will be on the bottom front of the monitor. Good luck

Is it possible for me to remover the on board screen of my laptop(MX 6956) in order to use the keyboard and HD with an external monitor?


You don't need to remove the LCD screen.

1) Laptop off connect the external monitor's VGA cable, to the VGA port (Connector) on the back of the laptop.
The VGA port looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

2) Turn on the laptop.

3) Plug the external monitor into power. Windows will recognize it as an new hardware device.
Windows will search through it's database of Drivers, and match one up.
However, if you have the installation disk that comes with the monitor, install it now.
Load the software.

(The monitor's Installation Disk (CD) has the proper drivers. It will set the resolution settings at the correct resolution for the monitor. If you do not have the Installation Disk, download the drivers from the monitor's manufacturer website)

4) Once the drivers are installed immediately Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties.

5) Now Left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You will see two rectangular shaped icons. One icon has a 1 in it, the other icon has a 2 in it.
The icon with a 1 in it represents your Primary monitor.
The laptop's LCD screen.

The icon with a 2 in it represents your Secondary monitor.
The external monitor you just hooked up.

Right-click on the 2 icon, then left-click on Attached.
Go to the bottom Right, and left-click on Apply.
Now go to the bottom Left, and left-click on OK.

you will probably find that you have set the screens to run side by side, do a check by clicking the identify monitors, icons will be normaly on the left screen, check the dispay settings and you probably want to set the monitors so they both are showing the same screen at the same time.
good luck.

Monitor displays a black half circle 1.5 inch diameter in upper left conrner of screen.


Depending on the age of the monitor, this could be a symptom of a failing LCD display (or CRT tube, if you're using one of the older styled big ones). one way to test for sure though, is if you have access to another computer (whether it be desktop or laptop, shouldn't matter) and hook it up to that one and see if the same thing happens. If it does, then you know that your monitor is at fault. If you are within manufacturer's warranty you can usually get it repaired through your place of purchase, or directly with the manufacturer themselves, but if not, then repairs are usually not worth it, and will probably cost more than the monitor is currently worth.
