Hi lynn,
I believe it is the function key in combination with the F4.  If this doesn't work then you may need to right click on your desktop, select properties and enable the second monitor.
Hope this helps, and please take a second to vote!

Look at the F keys on your laptop (F1, F2....)

find one that has a monitor picture on it. if you have one (mine is F8), hold the Fn (function) key and that F key.

that should turn the external monitor on

Can I use just the upstream hookup to connect an external monitor to my laptop? Also need to replace power cord. was not included Not the output needed Pwr rating says 12v dc 5.5a. That's all.


I use either VGA or HDMI connectors to connect to an external monitor.
I'm not sure what you're asking on the "power cord". Are you asking about the charging "brick" and such? Or?

You have the standard data cable that attaches to the back of the computer (it's built in to the monitor), then you have your power cord. It is removable.

How to hook up speakders?


The monitor does not have output sound since it is only an input device. You will have to hookup the speakers to your device (laptop, computer, gaming console) that you are connecting to the monitor. The speakers in the monitor are ready to receive a signal so that it can amplify it and let you hear it. If you hookup your speakers to the monitor it is the same as if you were trying to hookup two sets of speakers to each other.

DVI CABLE AND AUDIO CABLE. NO EXPLAINATION OF HOOKUP OR USE


Plug the audio cable into the LIME GREEN port on the computer.

You can onlly use a DVI cable if your Video Card has that kind of connector.

Trust me, you don't need one. Use the D-shaped 15 pin connector.

External monitor cannot stop moving


You need to right click on the desktop, select properties and then settings.  Change the resolution to be correct (or smaller) than that of your monitor.
I suggest you start with 800x600 and then work your way up till it starts scrolling again.  then go down 1 resolution.

I cannot find the hole to plug in my Comcast Cable hookup?


You are missing the Coaxial Adapter.

Visit www.samsungparts.com
At the search by dialog box at the top right, type SYNCM910MP
You should find 16 parts for your LCD monitor.
Click on 3705-001191 which is the 2nd part listed.
The part title is called CONNECTOR-COAXIAL, MALE TO FEMALE.

You can download the manual at www.samsung.com. Search 910mp and download the 20mb user manual for tips on setting up and troubleshooting. Good Luck.

DVI connection not working


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
