Re: dual or mirror monitors

Their is a button located on the 1-9 keys, it looks like a little monitor. Maybe 2 monitors.

Hold down your FN key (Function) and press that button, that will turn on the svga connector. Also if you press it again it should keep both monitors on, and again will switch back to only the LCD.

I connected my Dell laptop to my Vizio HDTV with an SVGA Monitor Cable, but I get a blue screen and "No Signal" when I select Comp on the television's input menu.

It's because the tv is connected as a second monitor and it must be configured accordingly. Follow this
 the tv will be the second (2) display. Also make sure you select the native resolution of your tv for the best image quality.

I am trying to hook my PC to my HDTV. I both a cable VGA/SVGA cable to do that. I am having problems trying to see my pc screen on the tv, what can I do to make it work.

First turn off TV+PC. Then switch on TV only.Press TV/AV on your remote to AV2 or .. Now switch on your PC. It will detect your TV as a new hardware & install the drivers automatically. You can use options from your graphic card later such as dual monitor or clone monitor..

My dell inspiron 1300 notebook seems to be working but I cannot see anything on the screen. I was told to hook it up using a VGA cord to a monitor to solve the problem. It doesnt seem to be working and...

after u connect it to VGA u need to change the display signal interface to monitor from lcd, the option is available in display properties in Control panel
under Display prop, go to Settings/Advanced/Monitor or Adaptor depending on the choice.
there u will get LCD or Monitor or TV to chose.
the big ? is if you cant view anything on the LCD laptop how will u do it....?
check if u can view any bit of display in ur laptop like a filim negative....if it's totaly dark then u may visit a tech shop to replace the lcd screen

I have an acer aspire 5515 and im trying to hook it to a flat screen Regza tv i am using a svga monitor cable and it still isnt working

Somewhere on your computer's keyboard, you have a 'fn' key. Usually, this key is in the lower left corner of the keyboard. This key will need to be depressed simultaneously with another key on the keyboard that should have two pictures of monitors seperated by a '/' mark.

When you depress these two keys simultaneously, the computer switches from the output on the laptop screen to the output on the vga port.

Additionally, you will have to configure your TV to receive the signal from the svga port. Different TV's do this diffrerently, so I'm not sure exactly how you need to do it on yours.

Lastly, the sound does not follow this connection. So, while you are enjoying the use of the TV screen for viewing whatever on your laptop, if you are watching a movie or similar activity, you will not hear very much. Laptops are not designed to fill a room with sound.

good luck

S-video output not working

I think your problem is because the monitor is not activated. Right click desktop, click properties, click settings. Drag the gray scaled monitor on top of the black monitor and click ok and it should send the signal to the external monitor. try draging the mouse over to it because by default the external screen will be black.

Hope this helps!

Using s video output


Two things you can try:
1. You need to Activate your TV OUT feature in the Monitor setting of your display properties and select Clone so as to mirror what you see in your laptop's display in your TV. As you posted, the S cable must already be inserted before powering up your laptop; and/or

2. You may need to lower your laptops screen resolution. Most but not all TV units have lower resolution capacity than monitors. Perhaps try with the lowest possible setting (800X600) and when it shows on your TV, slowly increase till it blanks out again. pressing escape would revert you back to last setting that worked. Additionally you may need to lower likewise your laptop's Color Quality setting and/or the Screen Refresh rate.

Hope that this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
