Question about Computer Monitors
I would like the new 20" monitor to replace the laptop monitor. How do I move the display from the laptop monitor to the new monitor. ?
Find the connector on your laptop that matches your new laptop. Plug it in and let Windows discover it....
It probably will say something like "found new hardware" and will install a "generic" driver for your new monitor. After the driver is installed (and Windows should tell you that the device is ready to use", Find the row of keys known as function keys. Usually, all function keys on the top row have a second set of symbols on the "f1 through f12 keys. You should see one the looks like "lcd" which refers to the monitor on your laptop and the other that shows a rectangular symbol with an arrow indicating out to an external monitor. Once you hold the function key down and press whatever key shows the symbol, the laptop image will switch to the new monitor. To switch back to the laptop screen, reverse the process.
