Have you tried to lower you laptop's screen resolution to 800x600?
Have you tried one of these:
1. You need to manually enable video on tv by pressing two buttons on your laptop keyboard. The first is "Fn" (at the left bottom). The second depends on your laptop manufacturer. Look at the function keys. F1....F12 for the LCD/CRT or the corresponding sign. Press and hold Fn and press second button. Sometimes you need to press second button several times. This means you need to cycle through all available options to enable Laptop's screen and TV screen at the same time (clone).
2. Intel Extreme Graphics video cards sometimes doesn't support a procedure described above. You need to find intel video card options manager running at the sys-tray (right bottom of your screen near the clock). Right click on it. Select Graphic Options -> Output to -> Laptop + ... clone (or something similar)
Note that not all video cards are capable of showing the movie on media player at the same time. You need to choose then,- Laptop or TV

My HP 2840 Printer not fully functional via USB with my HP KQ752AA Docking stations (running Windows 7 32 bit), but if connected directly to the laptop it works...what is the problem w/the docking station?


Are you using the same cable to connect? The 2800 series printers do not tolerate USB cables over 10 feet and I have had some that would not connect properly unless a 6 foot cable was used. If you are using the same cable then it is possible that the drivers for the docking station are not installed properly on your laptop and you might need to update them from the manufacturers website.

Sorry, but you can use only one port at a time, not both, It is either DVI or VGA. If you want to drive two monitors, you need to lok for docking station with dual video card.

Change the resolution on the cable box or satellite box, witch ever you have. A set by itself cannot change the resolution, if the cable is giving you 720p, that's what you'll see for that station. All stations do not transmit in HD. The best picture is only as good as they're giving you.

I have a Pioneer Plasma tv without the media reciever. Is there another product out there that will let me get a picture or do I have to find a reciever ???


Get a Kworld KW-SA295-Q DE, converter box, If the screen is good it will drive the DVI input, its output is DVI-I. I am using one at present till I can find a fix for the Media RX. NewEgg has it for $70.
It is over the air or cable digital only has a DVI-I external input also.

Running two external monitors


Okay. Thanks for the info too...

I looked at the user's guide for this laptop and see exactly what you're saying.
I found it here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/MacBook_Pro_Users_Guide.pdf

So, the laptop comes with a DVI to VGA adapter because the only port on this system that will allow you to connect an external display is one that connects to a DVI port (in short, you don't have a VGA port).

moz-screenshot-3.jpgmoz-screenshot-4.jpgOkay, you have a couple of options here:

  1. You can purchase a docking station which, depending on where you buy it from, will be more expensive than the other options. If you decide to purchase one, first make sure that it will provide the ports that you need. For example, my docking station has one DVI port and one VGA port. If and when I connect a second monitor, I will connect it to the DVI port using a single DVI to VGA adapter (as I don't have any flat panels that connect directly to a DVI port). 63efdf2.jpg If you purchase the docking station, make sure it has both the DVI and VGA or you're stilling floating up the same creek without a paddle.
2. You can't use the cable that came with the laptop because it only connects to the DVI port
of your laptop with one VGA connector on the other end, therefore, supporting only one
external monitor. You need either a DVI to DVI and VGA adapter or a DVI to VGA and VGA
adapter
.

This is a DVI to DVI and VGA adapter

This is a DVI to VGA and VGA adapter

bacdb24.jpg
Okay, now that we covered that information, let's get down to business...
Since you already have your monitors and probably don't want to spend $200-300 on a docking station, this is the best and quickest solution:

You have two monitors both with VGA connectors. Your laptop has 1 DVI port on its side (correct?).
Look at the image of the DVI to VGA and VGA adapter. You need to purchase one of these. It will allow you to connect one end to the DVI port on the laptop and connect your monitors to the two VGA ports on the other end...viola!!

You can use the DVI to VGA and DVI adapter but it would complicate your situation unless you were trying to connect a VGA and DVI monitor so we can eliminate that option unless you are desparate and that's the only adapter you find to purchase.

These adapters are very inexpensive (probably anywhere from $9 to $19. You should be able to purchase them at a store that sells computers, hardware, software, etc. You may even find them at Wal-Mart or RadioShack. If need be, you can purchase one online. However, if you go out and search a couple of stores or computer places, you should find one and be able to connect your monitors when you get home.

Feel free to leave any comments if you need further information.

Thanks for using Fixya and don't forget to rate this solution.

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 ..
