    I've tried the Fn and monitor keys, but nothing is going to the monitor (no signal). It's a Compaq CQ60 - 615DX

Assuming that you have Audio already functional, the solution is to set your system to "Clone" rather than "Extend" video. Right click on desktop > properties > settings > click on second monitor > uncheck extend monitor box (below). Click ok, press Fn + F8 to Clone.

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

How do I use my hdmi to vga converter on my envy 15


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

Where can i find a display screen for my acer liqiud mini e310? all what i find when i search is touch screens and i want the display one!


I'm assuming you want to hook up an external monitor? If that is the case than any with a VGA hook up, which is most monitors will work. You simply plug in the VGA cable from the netbooks vga port to the port on the monitor. You will need to from the FN key + one of the F# keys that says LCD or has a monitor icon. You can toggle to netbook only, netbook + external mirrored, external only. You can also configure it for extended display and use both displays at the same time.

Does Lenovo 3000 Y410 support dual monitors


Yes.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF.
Connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the back of the laptop.

The VGA port is on the right side, as you view the back of the laptop.
This is a basic example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port, (Connector),

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

NOTE* Color does Not matter.

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

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

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key.

No?
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

Hold the Fn key down, and tap again on the F3 key.

(The Fn key is down at the bottom LEFT corner of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is at the top of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key )

Need more information post in a Comment.

Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

Th problem is lcd


No display on laptop's internal monitor, and there is no blinking cursor?
Start with seeing if it is a display problem.

Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop. If the display does not show on the external VGA monitor, the problem is the graphics chipset.

You did not state the model number of the Fujitsu laptop, therefore all I can give is generic basic information.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.
This is an example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector,

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

The VGA connector (Port) on your laptop is either on the side, or back of the laptop. May be marked on laptop as RGB.

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

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

By default 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 the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.

The Display Toggle-Over key is one of the F keys at the top of your keyboard. F1 through F12.
It will have a monitor symbol on it.
(For example most HP laptops use the F4 key )

No display on external VGA monitor? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

If no display shows on the external VGA monitor you have a bad graphics chipset. Motherboard replacement.

If a display does show on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

Post back with the results, after using an external VGA monitor, in a Comment.

When I hook up a hp lcd monitor to my HP laptop . I get error message no input signal then the monitor goes to sleep


With the monitor hooked up, you'll have to use the function key to switch to the VGA output. This is usually the Fn key and the correct F-key. It'll usually have to boxes or something like that. For instance, if your F5 key had 2 boxes on it, hit Fn-F5 and it should start outputting signal to your monitor.

Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.
