This is not enough information for me to diagnose this problem, but I bet if you could give me some more info I can get you fixed right up!

Are you trying to use an external monitor at the same time as the laptop screen? Or just one or the other?

How is the desktop screen connected to the laptop?

If you get me as much info as you can about what is going on I am happy to help!

    FPD1930 gateway monitor powers up then a small box saying power save mode appears then it just goes black what's wrong with it

    Hi. power save mode being displayed by the monitor could be caused by 3 things.
    1)VGA cable to monitor is unplugged - check connections at computer and monitor
    2)video card has been partially dislodged from motherboard socket. -remove computer cover and ensure video card is firmly pushed down into motherboard socket - do not use excessive force.
    3)Monitor does not support video settings on the computer. - to fix on PC, turn on computer and press F8 button a few times during bootup - Windows will go to bootup screen - select SAFE MODE and hit enter. follow onscreen instructions - dont worry about weird colours and huge desktop icons - this is simply to get you going. Right click on desktop, select PROPERTIES>SETTINGS TAB. select screen resolution 1024*768 0r lower, select Apply or Ok. Now restart your machine

    What does two beeps on a dell Inspiron 530S mean and how do you get it out of power saving mode?

    Power off. Wait a full minute. Discharge static from your hands by touching exposed metal part of chassis (case). Open your case and re seat memory chips.

    Hard drive message

    Probably the hard-drive has gone bad.. First try a complete re-install of windows (you will lose all saved data on the hard-drive, so if you can, back up all important files first)..

    If that doesn't work, you need to purchase a new hard-drive
