Using my notebook with a desktop flat screen

I use my Compacq V2000 with a desktop flat screen to help my posture and when I close up the lid it goes into stand-by because the flexible on/off switch is depresssed. Is there any way I can circumvent this?

Re: using my notebook with a desktop flat screen

Open display properties (windows xp), select power options (I believe within the appearance, or screensaver tab) power scheme settings - change settings for when you close the lid of your laptop.. set it to "do nothing"

Can i close my laptop while using other mouse and keyboard

I am assuming you mean the laptop screen, not power off. The other mouse and keyboard is an external mouse and keyboard connected to your laptop. either way .. the answer is use.
Just keep in mind what your settings our when you do close the screen lid as this will either place the computer into sleep mode or power off.

I have a compaq v2401 cl, screen is turning black but when i pressed the lid button it turns back on for a while and after that goes back off.need help. thanks

This is likely an issue with power management- are you using the computer when the screen goes black? Or does it happen if you step away from the system...? If this is the case, go to control panel > power options and adjust the delay for your LCD turning off. If the situation is where the screen turns off constantly, that is an issue w/in the hardware of the laptop, and requires you to contact either HP or a local IT firm like Geeksquad or others for repairs to your laptop.

Compaq V2000 Display blacks out

sounds like the backlight has gone....test with an external monitor....if the external monitor works without any problems...the backlight has gone...better to get a professional to do this as its kind of fiddly and involves taking the screen apart

Dell inspiron 1150 screen goes black after standby

Let me help you regarding this, As your notebook is not having low room to handel the standby applications, i suggest you to change the power options in the control pannel. There you find POWER OPTIONS icon click on it and go to advance tab, there u find the option called WHEN YOU CLOSE THE LID, put it to DO NOTHING. So that nothing happens when you close the lid. I hope this helps you. BYE

Using the laptop w/o an docking station

go to control panel>power options>choose what closing the lid does.... in this screen Choose the option that says DO nothing. This will allow you to close the lid and still work of the externals.

Lid Switch

Are you referring to the switch that turns off the LCD screen when the lid is closed?

The switch may be attached to the mother board, in which case, advance soldering skills may be needed.

Are you sure the switch is bad? I believe you can actually change the power settings to force the LCD to remain on, even with the lid closed. Perhaps that warrants a look.

Black screen

Yes, it could be stuck in hybernation

Or.. Check to See if the Lid Switch is Stuck Down... Some laptops have alittle Movable plastic pin that depresses when the lid is closed to turn the screen off... this can sometimes get stuck down to the board button.. causing the symptoms youre experiencing

Compaq presario v2000 monitor is having horizontal purple lines that flicker.

Try reloading the drivers, delete the device in device manager and reboot. It should then pick up the drivers and reload them, if that does not work I would suspect the screen is on its way out (flickering normally means the screen or its connection is bad)
