Black screen on advent5431


1. Check in Screen settings to make sure the video output is going to the laptop screen, not the secondary out put.
2. make sure that you choose Extend displays.
3. There is probably a FN key at the top that will toggle between primary and secondary displays.

Why doesn't my laptop display when I hook the VGA cable to the projector


If the vga connection does not display the image it means the secondary display is not enabled into your computer ..Go to the image settings in control panel ..(the driver settings for the video card..)..open them and look for the option for enabling the second monitor ..It will start a wizard and you have to choose the mode and settings fro it ..(by mode I mean choose how you want to be displayed as clone ...or extended...first will clone the monitor and the second one will extend the monitor and you can even run different applications )
Also be sure you have the video driver installed cause if it works with the windows generic driver will not have all features for it ..and will not work )
for most laptops..the enabling of secondary monitor is possible when you press Fn+ the F key indicated with the monitor sign ..(it can be F4 or F5 or F7 ) ..

My guess is that a recent Windows Update changed the drivers for either the monitor or the video card.

Google your 'video card make drivers', and then similar for the monitor.

You can also Google the secondary monitor by make and model specs and it will tell you the recommended resolution and of course that affects the aspect ratio.

Settings for resolution are done from Windows. Click Start, Settings, System, Display

Secondary drive 0 not found


Hi there.
Sounds like the boot order has been changed in the bios.
The secondary drive sounds like the CD drive as most laptops only come with 1 HDD installed.
Change the boot order to the primary drive by Pressing F1 during startup when the ThinkPad logo is displayed..
Once in the bios change the boot order, save and exit, the computer will restart and boot from the hard drive, when you get into windows check to make sure that the CD rom recognizes CD/DVD's.
Please post back if you need any more help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

If you are looking at Device Manager, the computer must be working to some degree. Since there are no drives on the SATA controller, you're probably using an IDE drive and don't need the SATA controller anyway. Disable it in the BIOS. And get more memory.
