MY acer ZD1 screen has gone black how do i connect it to a pc screen blind


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the Right/Rear of the laptop.
Example of a VGA connector (Port), and a VGA Cable,

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

Scroll down a little for an example of a VGA Cable.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Yes. You can also connect an HDMI cable to it, and HDTV with this capability.

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 VGA monitor.

If not;
There are at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

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

My laptop is vga,so i have bought a vga cable,and a converter box with HDMI cable. My samsung series 5 tv will not pick up the laptop. i have tried all the options available but it just says check devices...


Wouldn't it be NICE to know what laptop you are referring to

Oh well...........maybe one day

By factory default settings the display should automatically show in the external VGA monitor. (TV. Whatever)

HOWEVER;
Your laptop has at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

By factory default settings the display should automatically show in the external VGA monitor. (TV. Whatever)

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
Which key is the Display Toggle-Over key?
Dunno. Laptop manufacturer and model number wasn't stated.

(One of the F keys at the top.
Generally;
Acer = F5
HP = F4
Lenovo/IBM = F10
Dell = F8, unless it's Alienware - F6)

Did that? That's how it worked on your friend's TV?
Then your TV is the problem.
Settings I assume. NOT a TV tech.

How to disabled vga onboard motherboard 865g m8r


There are lots of different Bios's out there and all are different so I cannot give specific instruction. You need to restart your machine and on boot up you will see a screen that has options like (F2) Settings (ESC) Boot menu things like that. They vary by brand but you need to watch for what you need to press to enter your settings that will take you into your Bios If your not fast enough on the first reboot try again until you get into your bios once in your bios you will be looking for a setting that has something to do with your display ie: onboard VGA your bios may not have the option to disable your onboard but instead give you the option to enable a PCI-E Graphics Card as your first display. Keep in mind that if you do not know what a setting does Don't Change it. You can cause major system problems by changing settings that need not be changed. direction for navigation through your bios should be listed at the top or bottom of the bios screen. Be sure to save your new setting when you leave your bios.

Set up TV as monitor for laptop with Fedora


Try pressing the function key and the monitor key (Fn+ F key). This will cycle through the display modes (Internal monitor, external display, or both). Your monitor key will look like one of the following: 5eab006.jpg009092c.jpg41a2ff0.jpgUsually after you reboot the default setting should be to run the internal display only. Your monitor could possible have gone out, possible the LCD panel or the backlight.

Hello, i have disabled the option NO INTERNAL DISPLAY on bios afterhavingthe restart i have no display


It is because you turn off the onboard vga device in your motherboard that is why you don't have anymore display in your monitor. This will happen often if you don't have a separate video card in your system and you only use the onboard. To solve this problem, you should reset the bios of your motherboard. To do this refer to the motherboard manual.

Graphics card has error code 10 (device cannot start) on boot. Screen resolution is terrible, I've uninstalled and reinstalled driver. still not working


Hello

I found this solution for you on Nvidia's site, the say it is only a simple setting in the bios at start up.
Here it follows:

The Code 10 error is most often a result of not having the option "Assign IRQ to VGA" enabled in your motherboards system BIOS. Please note: Making changes to your system BIOS can cause your computer to malfunction or become inoperable. If you are unsure how to make BIOS changes, don’t. Seek assistance from your system administrator or technician. If you are familiar with making changes to your BIOS, you may proceed with this section.
To enter the system BIOS for most PC’s, you need to repeatedly click the “F1” or “Del” key on your keyboard as soon as you turn on your computer until it brings you to the system BIOS. If this does not bring you to your system BIOS, consult your motherboard manufacturer or system manufacturer for more information. Once inside of the system BIOS, search for the option “Assign IRQ to VGA”. Check that this option is enabled and then save these settings. Exit the system BIOS and boot back into Windows. The error code should be gone.

Please rate the solution.

Best regards

My ASUS P5SD2-VM Is Having A No Display Problem


If you are using the motherboards built in VGA graphic display, check your bios settings. Open your manual to page 2-22. Read the page.
Make sure you have the bios set to, Primary Graphics Adapter [PCI-E] set to, [IntVGA].
Set the internal VGA to, [Enable]. You will also need to set an amount of your system memory for the VGA to use. It is recommended if you are using Windows Vista that you increase your 1GB of system memory to, 2GB. Or instead you can buy a decent PCI-E video card that will use its own memory instead of your system memory. If you do this you'll need to change the bios settings to, Primary Graphics Adapter [PCI-E].
Also change, Share Memory Size to [Disabled].
If you need the manual for the Asus P5SD2-VM. Click on the link below;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5SD2-VM&SLanguage=en-us

Click the dropdown menu & click on your operating system. Than click Search. Asus list all drivers, manuals, FAQ's ect.
To view the manual you'll need Adobe Reader. You can download Adobe for free at this link;
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

Again, if you do not have any display & your using the built in VGA graphics card try resetting the bios. Doing this will reset the bios back to normal default settings. The bios will auto use the built in VGA. To clear the bios see page 1-22.

Good luck!

Motherboard installation


Hello mecompe,

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card.

There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card.
First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to
section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to
[AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card.
Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software.
If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.

Need the Asus manual? Click this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4SGX-MX&SLanguage=en-us

To view the manual you'll also need Adobe PDF reader, click this next link for Adobe.

(The green led (light), means standby. The board is receiving 5volts DC.

If you still do not have display just let me know.
Good luck mecompe!

Frezes at verifying DMI settings. Already changed MB and Power supply. Lan connection only flashes green once in a while should be constant. Tried on a working terminal and does the same.


The Desktop Management Interface (DMI) is a new
method of managing computers in an enterprise. The
main component of DMI is the Management Information
Format Database, or MIFD (the DMI Pool Data). This
database contains all the information about the
computing system and its components.
At times, some systems may experience hang
conditions after partitioning, formatting and initial
bootup of a hard drive. The message, "Verifying DMI
Pool Data" appears and the system hangs. This
condition may continue after the drive has been
removed.
! WARNING ! ALL SUGGESTIONS LISTED IN THIS
INFORMATION BULLETIN ARE BIOS RELATED. FOR
A PERMANENT SOLUTION, MAXTOR RECOMMENDS
THAT USERS CONSULT THEIR SYSTEM OR
MOTHERBOARD MANUFACTURER FOR BIOS
UPGRADES.
Suggestions to Resolve the Condition:
1.Apply power to the computer. 
2.Access the system BIOS. 
Set the drive type as None or Not Installed. 
Load BIOS Defaults 
Load SETUP Defaults 
3.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. 
4.Shut down the PC after the memory count is
displayed. 
5.Reconnect the power and interface cables to the
hard drive. 
6.Access the System BIOS. 
7.Auto-Detect the hard drive. Ensure that the LBA
Mode option is enabled. 
8.Save the BIOS changes and boot the PC with a
System Diskette. 
9.Partition and format the hard drive via the
operating system. 
10.Reboot the system. On bootup, the screen should
read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
Other Possible Solutions:
1.Apply power to the computer. 
2.Access the System BIOS. 
3.Disable both the Internal and External CPU Cache.
These features are located in either the "BIOS
Features" or "Advanced Settings" options of the
BIOS Setup.
NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's
Manual for exact location of the Internal and
External CPU Cache settings. 
4.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen
should read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
5.After the system successfully boots, re-start the
PC and access the system BIOS. 
6.Enable the External CPU Cache. This feature is
located in the "BIOS Features" or "Advanced
Settings".
NOTE: Consult the System or Motherboard User's
Manual for exact location of the External CPU
Cache setting.
! WARNING ! User's MUST re-enable this feature
for optimal system performance. 
7.Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a
System Boot Diskette. On bootup, the screen
should read: 
Verifying DMI Pool Data
Update Successful
The system should continue booting normally.
NOTE: If the aforementioned suggestions fail to
resolve the issue, contact the system or motherboard
manufacturer to:
Remove the "Clear CMOS" Jumper and reset the
system BIOS 
Obtain a Flash BIOS Upgrade

from pc help;
SYSTEM HANGS AT MESSAGE: "VERIFYING DMA POOL DATA":
You did not say what operating system you are running but I assume Windows 95 or 98. It is possible some Windows
system files are corrupted or perhaps the system doesn't like your ram (if you added or installed ram recently). There
is also a possibility that there is something wrong with your BIOS and you *may* have to update it, but I would avoid
doing that if at all possible.
A quick fix - if the problem is software related - is to:
1. boot to a Windows startup disk (one that matches your operating system). this step assumes that your PC is setup
to boot to the A: drive before the C: drive (via the BIOS SETUP program). If you don't have a Windows startup disk,
you will have to make one on another person's computer that has the same version of Windows. You make one via:
my_computer/control_panel/add_remove_programs/startup_disk
2. run "scandisk c:" to make sure that any file corruption is fixed before going to next step
3. do a "sys c:" from the "a:" prompt to transfer a good copy of Windows system files to c: drive
4. remove the boot floppy, reboot the system and see if all is well.
If that does not solve the problem you may have to reinstall Windows 95/98. Ouch!
I recently had someone bring me a computer that had this DMI error message problem and I tried the "sys c:" method
(with the startup disk) without success and had to entirely reinstall windows 95 (and almost all applications except for
some programs that did not need to be placed in any Program Files directory or other special location) to cure the
problem. However nasty a job that is, it did cure the problem.
