You will need to switch it to the external display by using the keyboard function key There should be a key in the F Keys above the letter pad that has a picture of 2 monitors on it, the color of the monitor on the key is blue it coincides with the blue function key. Using the function and the monitor keys you should be able to toggle your display options.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,

Hi sophie,

I see you want to extend you monito to an LG external monitor.

Have you tried selecting the input PC or the input that is for the cable that you are using for the Video.

If you are using HDMI select the Input HDMI on your LG if you are using DVI then you should select the input DVI to be able to get the signal from the Laptop come out of your LG.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

I'm using a lenovo L195 LCD monitor, and my Graphic Card is Geforce 9300 GE. It is said that both the card and the monitor support DVI. When I try selecting the DVI signal input from the button on the...


If it's got a DVI input then it can handle a DVI signal.

There is no reason to have two cables plugged in unless you have two screens. If you've got two leads plugged in then the second one is probably turned off by default. I remember when I had a dual monitor set up, I had to turn on the second output in order to get both screens working.

You haven't said if you removed the d sub when the pc was off, but I get the impression that it was on at the time. Try unplugging the d sub while the pc is off, check the dvi cable is inserted correctly on both ends and then turn your pc on. It should now be working.

If that doesn't work then turn your pc off again, plug the d sub back in and start it up. Go to your display settings and turn on the dvi port, you want it to display a copy of the first screen. if you extend your desktop then you'll only be able to see half of it at a time. This isn't an ideal solution and your graphics card will be doing double the work, so try it the proper way first.

You might not notice the difference though.

How do you connect LG W2261 VP Monitor to HP Pavilion 6310uk Desktop


The computer has VGA, DVI-I (dual link) and HDMI ports. The monitor has VGA, DVI and HDMI but only came with a VGA cable. Some computers have recently come with shielding covering all of the ports except the one that is currently live. Thus, check your hardware; the computers I've seen with only one active port, the HDMI port was active before resetting the video options. So get an HDMI cable (it will provide the best signal in addition). If the DVI-I port is currently live, you should get that cable as well and then change the settings to enable the HDMI port.

I hope this helps.

(you do not need to get the super-expensive cables; the low end ones will be fine. However a single link DVI cable is not the same as a dual link cable; sometimes using the wrong cable leads to no signal to the monitor.)

No display with vga or dvi, but "no signal" without cable


Stick with the VGA cable. You have tried several PC's but are you also using the same cable? Bad cable perhaps? How about software conflicts? Really should not be an issue as most are plug and play.
Try connecting a laptop to it with the VGA cable. Use the Function "FN" key with the F series on top row...the one with the LCD or monitor icon on it, usually F5, F7 or F8. This tells the laptop that you have connected an additional external monitor to it. If that fails, something is faulty with the monitor and there is not much I can do to help. Sorry...but let me know about the laptop connection.

Why won't the HD channels come in on my lg flat screen monitor? We changed the cable box and everything. Any suggestions?


The first thing you need is the HD tuner. Since you stated that you changed the cable box I will assume that means it's HD ready.
So you have HD signal coming in to the cable box box by-way of a coaxial cable. Now you need to get that HD signal to the monitor. For this connection the standard coaxial cable normally used between the TV and cable box will not do the job. How many connection options you have depends entirely on the what is available on the monitor.
Normally there are three choices. Your monitor could have anyone of these, a combination of them or none if it's not HD ready.
They are Component cable, HDMI and DVI.
Component is a combination of three RCA type (red, blue, and green), connectors. Simply connect the "Component Out" from the cable box to the "Component In" on the monitor.
HDMI cable looks similar to a computer monitor cable but bigger. Same goes for this one. Connect the "HDMI Out" from the cable box to the "HDMI In" on the monitor.
An indirect connection can also be made if your monitor has a "DVI In" jack by using a cable that will allow you to come from the "Out" connection of either the HDMI or Component on the cable box to the "DVI In" on the monitor.
If you are unclear about anything or you have any other questions please just ask and I'll try and help out.

Dvi port doesn't work with 23'' samsung monitor


yeah, you can set the display setting as extension display your DVI

Intel, ATI,Nvidia have tools also to set up,

i have ATI and use the ATI Catalyst tools and autodetect the monitors that i connected to my docking station, intel and nvidia also have this utility.

it depends on setting if u wanted the external monitor as CLONE monitor of your laptop or extension Monitor...

or they might have problem on DVI port of your docking station.

download and install the video utility ( must have .net installed before you install the utility)

the utility will detect your video ports (VGA,DVI,S-video)

let me know the update ..

Flat Panel Insignia 19


Lets see the cableing..

So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?

The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.

Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.

LG flat panel


Due to no model number I will assume it has bith digital and analogue inputs.
If possible, connect another cable the opposite of what you are using and try it again. (IE: if you are using a DVI cable now, use an analogue instead)
It is possible that the internal video card of the monitor has been shorted out and will not accept a signal any longer.
On the upside, if that is the case, the digital and analogue circuits are normally seperate to each other so losing one dosn't mean losing both. It could also be the output section of your PC's video card that has suffered the same fate so try the other video port (if you have 2 on the same card) or try another video card.
