Connecting a Dell Latitude D630 Laptop with an HP LP2465 monitor

I am working with AutoCAD and other graphics programs and just came up with an HP monitor large enough to keep me from going blind from using the smaller laptop screen. I have yet to hook up the two and I am hoping this exercise is not going to present problems or prove to be a non-workable deal. Any experience positive or negative with this configuration. Connection cables???

Thanks.

The Dell Latitude D630 has a 15 pin VGA port that can connect to an external monitor or projector. For detailed information go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag"(serial number) of the laptop. Confirm this is the model you have and select “manuals” on the left side column. Select “Get manual” and select the language option. You can view or download the “User’s Guide” in different formats. After you choose the format you want, select “Using the Display” for info.

How do I connect dual monitors


Connecting dual monitor is a 2 step process:
1. Verify how many Video output ports your PC/Laptop has. If 2 ports are present like an HDMI, VGA, DVI, S-Video then you can connect the two monitors to each ports based on the monitors compatibility. If only 1 port is present, then you will have to get a splitter or a new graphics card.

2. After connecting the monitors you can choose the type of display configuration whether a 'mirrored' or 'extended'. Mirrored will replicate same screen on the second monitor. Extended will merge both monitor screens and create 1 large screen.


Please let me know if the answer was helpful. I have worked as a Tech Support Associate in Dell in the initial days of my career and I love troubleshooting.

How can I adjust the height of the HP LP2465 24" LCD Monitor?


MOST OF THE TIME THEY WILL NOT ADJUST UP AND DOWN. LOOK FOR A SMALL LEVEL AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BASE OR JUST BEFORE THE BASE. I JUST GOOGLE IT AND FOUND PICTURE OF IT.

Dell E177FPB monitor has ghost images "bleeding"


I had dual monitor with color bleed to the right. The solution was
1) identify optimal resolution for both monitors ( Dell 198wfp @ 1400 x 900) and (Laptop @ 1200 x 800) 2) check colour setting (32 bit or 16 bit) 3) reduce colour setting down to 16 bit) 4) Check performance 5) reduce screen resolution 6) check 7) cycle between screen color and screen resolution 8) if no luck, check updating the drivers for graphic card 9) if no luck, check updating monitor drivers 10) if no luck, check altering memory set aside for graphics (onboard memory for example or off-graphics-chip-on-RAM-memory) 11) Monitor checking software is very helpful : try "http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?id=22" for the Nokia Monitor Test (a CRT tester) or any other freeware/shareware testing program such as passmark's products etc.,
You might just have to suffer with a large workspace and mungy grapics performance though ... I am.

Dell D630 Laptop starts when it likes.


Chances are your nVidia card is now defective due to a known issue with certain Dell models. The GPU has a clocking issue, and melts down due to heat. BIOS A16 released to combat this, but no real fix except to replace motherboard. See http://www.itexaminer.com/nvidia-dell-hp-sued-over-defective-chips.aspx Even if out of Warranty, contact Dell Support, as they have been known to repair these issues by replacing the motherboards with ATI Video Card models.

Your screen refresh rate may be too high for the monitor or one of the parts might be incompatible with windows try lowering your screen refresh rate. Or checking windows for a compatible driver for the chip or monitor.
