Does the monitor work with any other pc/laptop? If it does, try pressing one of the Function keys (i.e. F3, F4, etc) that toggles the external display option on your laptop after you've plugged into your external video port.

Is the port VGA or HDMI?

    Thanks for info. The monitor does work with another computer. The port on my computer is a VGI port. I tried pressing the Funtion Keys as well, but the message on the monitor's screen still comes as 'No Video Input'.

    Well, if you can see video with another pc on the monitor, then your monitor is fine. I'm wondering if you laptop's external monitor vga port is working. Can you use any other monitor with your laptop?

After i power up sign on it goses to white screen


You could have a loose video cable connection that attaches to the motherboard or you may have a faulty on-board video.
Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop, power up the external monitor fist and then boot up the laptop. The video will automatically divert to the external monitor if the on-board video is OK.
This means the video cable/connector needs re-seating or the video cable is faulty.

Why doesn't my laptop display when I hook the VGA cable to the projector


If the vga connection does not display the image it means the secondary display is not enabled into your computer ..Go to the image settings in control panel ..(the driver settings for the video card..)..open them and look for the option for enabling the second monitor ..It will start a wizard and you have to choose the mode and settings fro it ..(by mode I mean choose how you want to be displayed as clone ...or extended...first will clone the monitor and the second one will extend the monitor and you can even run different applications )
Also be sure you have the video driver installed cause if it works with the windows generic driver will not have all features for it ..and will not work )
for most laptops..the enabling of secondary monitor is possible when you press Fn+ the F key indicated with the monitor sign ..(it can be F4 or F5 or F7 ) ..

Monitor keeps going to sleep


Hi,

This issue is related to the Video cable. Better check its connection. Unplug/replug it to both computer and the monitor. If this doesn't work, then you need to replace it.

Auto Adjusting in progress keeps popping up?


Might be a loose connection, a bad cable, or a bad video card. I'd try the monitor on a different computer--even a laptop. Should give you an answer as to what's wrong. With the laptop, reboot it with the video cable attached.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

Popping up of ''Auto adjusting'' on 15'' TFT BENQ monitor


Check the cable connections from the computer to the monitor, you might have a loose cable or bad connection.

Otherwise: did you upgrade your graphics driver lately ? And when do you get these popups, always or only when (i.e.) watching video ?

Connecting and recording camera with s video output on 1221 tx


Hi,

The cam setup you're trying in your surgery is similar to the type I often setup in Dental operatories for there intra-oral cameras.

You need an tuner, if your external has S-Video port, you can simply plug into it and use windows media center or the cards software(if it came seperate) to record from the s-video feed.

Then you can hook the S-Video output from the laptop to the TV monitor in question and run the laptop in mirrored mode to show the same image on both screens.

Hope this helps,

Chris
