Question about Toshiba Advanced Port Replicator III (PA3314U-1PRP)

1 Answer

Dual monitors: DVI and VGA not supported simultaneously

I can use dual monitors with one being the internal screen, but I would like to have two external LCDs connected instead.
From what I've read online, it seems the Port Replicator II can't handle DVI and VGA simultaneously, but can I use the VGA on the laptop (Tecra M5) and the DVI on the port replicator?? NVIDIA should be able to handle it, I assume.

It looks like this a problem for the Port replicator III, not II, right? I'm not an expert on port replicators, but if you have even an ok video card, it should work fine even running all three...

When i turn on laptop screen is white

Probably a hardware fault I'm afraid.
It could be the video card - to test this, plug in an external monitor via the VGA port and turn on the computer.
If it works fine there, the video card is probably OK.
(With some computers you may need to activate the external port via pressing a key combination such as Function key and the F7 key simultaneously.)

Most likely its a loose LCD data cable where it attaches to the back of the screen, or less likely, where it connects to the mainboard.
If, after reseating the cable at both ends, its still white, it may be a faulty LCD panel, or the cable itself is damaged.
I'd replace the cable first, as its the cheapest, then the panel.
Hope this helps.

Can I connect my LG flat screen tv monitor to my toshiba satellite L505D-GS6000 labtop. There is an HDMI-DVI IN port on the back of tv. On laptop I don't see an HDMI port but there is an RGB (monitor)...

Ok in order to hook up the laptop to the TV you have 2 options
First option.
Buy something like this it will directly interface your laptop with your tv. The benefit will be you will get sound to your tv from the laptop

second option.
you will need a vga to hdmi cable like this one
you can buy this here
now this option will only let you have just the video from your laptop on the television because a VGA cable is a video only cable and port.
I hope this helps you.

I'm trying to get two external monitors to work with the PR02X. Only one is working currently.

You need to plug them according to a special schematic - the monitors will work only in specific pairs, not between any video connectors.And you should use the VGA for one of them to insure maximum compatibility.
The specific pairs are listed in the manual at page 14. if you need the manual here it is

No backlight in my lcd but the whole laptop work properly,

Try to connect external monitor to your laptop then hit the short cut keys(see your manual)to use dual monitor. if you got screen on dual monitor. Try to check your laptop screen if something can still be view from screen, if you have then backlighting circuit is to be check. Practical solution is to bring it to a shop if you are not inclined on fixing it yourself.

Laptop to pc monitor

Connecting the laptop to an external monitor hooked uip to the VGA connector at the back of the laptop cannot damage the laptop, even if the monitor is connected to a different power supply, as on the VGA port and cable there is not high voltage being carried.

Laptop screen does not work when plugged into projector

If you connect a laptop projector or external monitor before you boot up your laptop, the video most likely will go directly to that external device. To have both the laptop LCD and projector you will need to press the Function key that has the monitor/laptop symbole (this key will be a dual function key and you will need to press the Fn key first and then the Function key with the monitor/laptop symbole. This Function can be any key between F3 and F12, it depends on the brand of the laptop.
When you press this key it will toggle between
LCD only
External monitor/projector only
or both LCD and external monitor/projector
