External monitor not working on Insprion 710m

Do I need to turn on the external video port? How do I do that? The monitor is working as I get the floating "unconnected" menu.

    can you alter the settings through your display settings panel?
    do you need to add it like a second device on a pc?
    by this i mean when you go to display settings and click on the second screen and "extend the desktop onto this monitor".
    most of my laptop knowledge is with toshiba,sorry.

    try this. just spoke to a pal who has one. he said this is how he had to get his output to a tv working, may be the same fix?

    click the start button and click control panel.
    double click the Intel(R)GMA Driver for Mobile icon.

    In the display devices section,
    select the apropriate option for using either a single adapter or multiple displays.
    ensure that the display settings are correct for your selection.

Hello,
Try connecting an external monitor to the computer and check if the external monitor displays the same thing. If the external monitor is fine then you would need to fix the LCD of your laptop. or have it replaced.
If the external monitor displays the same thing, then you would need to update the video driver in your computer. You can use RadarSync to automatically update the drivers.

Toshiba m35x starts /stops intermittently with no power to display monitor


By whom Kathleen? You?

I ask because there are two ways to answer this;

1) You performed the procedure, and less for me to post.

2) You did not perform the procedure, and I need to explain from the beginning; using a diagnostic flowchart, pictorial guidance, and guidance from me.

While I wait for your reply, suggest perform this simple test first;
Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach an external monitor;

1) VGA monitor to RGB (VGA) port on left side of laptop.
Can use a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), or flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

OR;

2) S-Video port on left side of laptop for TV, or external video display device

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Video

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By factory default settings, the display should show on the external monitor. (Display device)

If not there are 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external monitor
3) External monitor ONLY

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the SAME time tap once on the F5 key.
The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Display on external monitor means there is a problem with;

A) Video Cable
B) screen Inverter
C) LCD screen

Which means if computer display was working correctly before;

1) Whoever repaired it could have used the external display option, and it needs to be set back to internal

2) The Video Cable connections are not tight, not correct.

Loose at motherboard, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

3) Anti-Static Procedures were NOT followed, and laptop is now an expensive paperweight.

Post back in a Comment.

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor


Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:

steve_con_5.gif

Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Screen goes into standby mode after a few seconds. Screen will not stay on. Started after the computer was on and coming out of standby mode. Computer works fine on external monitor.


Depending on the options you purchased the laptop with, it either has an integrated video circuit into the motherboard or a plug-in video card to the motherboard. If the laptop works fine with external monitor, your motherboard or video card is defective. Your LCD display is probably O.K.

How to connect external monitor in ibm type 2658


Most laptops have a blue external 15pin video connector. Connect an external monitor's video cable to this port, then power up the external monitor first then boot up the ThinkPad, the video information will automatically divert to the external monitor first.
You can toggle/cycle the laptop and external monitor so they display on both the laptop and external monitor or the laptop LCD screen or external monitor by pressing the blue Fn key and then the F7 key several times.

My laptop is Dell insprion it is a gift but one


Update the video card driver. If it doesn't fix the issue go to bios and check the line if it can be seen, if it is then try to plug in an external monitor if you can see the line in the external monitor then you got a bad video card if it is not seen then try to run the LCD diagnostic of dell then if you see the line in there. You have a bad LCD if not and you didn't see the line in the external monitor then you'll need to download a newer driver for the video card or find a older version.

How to set up multiple external monitors on a laptop


Since you only have one external monitor port, you need to use a video spillter, this will allow you to connect two or more external monitors.

NOTE: This video splitter will only give you duplicated displays. Please check the link below:

After reinstall XP windows, it wont recognize my USB external hard drive anymore.


The USB ports are controlled in the BIOS. When you first boot up you should see something like "F8 for system", this will get you into BIOS, then arrow over to the ports area. Ensure that USB ports are turned on..

Need help picking an external modem for an old Dell Insprion 2500


Any computer capable of running Windows ME is capable of supporting any external modem.

In the past, for "internal" modems, there were "hardware" modems and "soft" modems.
The "soft" modems had 50% of the hardware of the "hardware" modem,
and the rest of the "brains" of the modem were embedded
in a software device-driver that gets installed into Windows.

Fortunately, most external modems are *NOT* such "soft" modems.

There do exist external modems that connect to a USB port,
and external USB wireless-devices, if you want a higher-speed connection.
