I am not sure how youve manage to connect these 2 items. You did not specify whic Portage you have, but even the most recent only has SXGA video port. The Apple cinema display connector is ADC. APPLE DISPLAY CONNECTOR. No computers on the planet have this port except for apple's. It's basically a modified DVI connector. In order for you to use this monitor with your computer, you would have to purchase a DVI to ADC connector , which is another APPLE only item and selld for $100 new. You would then have to purchase a SXGA to DVI adaptor...It sounds like a costly endeavor, and with a connections your Portage's onboard video card , amynot even support the resolution for this monitor.

Hope this helps.

Is there a spray or something that can get static out of my Toshiba Satellite laptop

Step 1:
Static, or fuzz, on your computer display is often caused by interference or an improperly functioning driver. Eliminate static using a two-part process. Ensure that your connections are tight and then ensure that you have the most recent display software installed on your computer. The entire procedure can be done in about 30 minutes or less.

Reach around to the back of your computer and ensure that your monitor cable is tightly connected to the machine. Perform the same task at the point where the cable connects to your monitor. Go to the website of your video card's manufacturer and click on the "Drivers Download" page. Enter the model number of your video card and click "Search." Download the latest driver for your system. Click "Save" to store the file on your hard drive. Double click on the file and click "Install" to install the driver to your system. Restart your computer when the installation is complete.

My laptop "toshiba tablet portage

If your computer is still under warranty you can contact the Toshiba support site and order recovery media. They will refer you to the company that sells them. The cost is about 45 dollars + taxes.
Even if your computer is no longer under warranty you may still be able to obtain the recovery medias.

Failing that, you may consider buying a retail version of the Windows Operating system and install it on the computer. Some custom buttons may not work, and you will have to go to the Toshiba support web site to download the drivers for your computer. Before buying a version of Windows, check the Toshiba site for your computer and your intented OS (WinXP 32/64, Vista 32/64, or Win 7 32/64) )to see if they have drivers.

Hello i have a problem i have a epson ex30 projector and i cant make it work with mt toshiba labtop

When connecting a projector or second display to your laptop, you may need to tell the laptop to "clone" or "duplicate" your display onto the second device. This can be done one of two ways:
  1. A key combination on your keyboard.

    A. While holding the Function or Fn button on your keyboard, press the
    Function key that shows a picture of a monitor or a computer and a
    monitor. On my Toshiba laptop, this is F5.

    B. You may have to press the Function key multiple times. If this doesn't
    work, proceed to option 2.

  2. The video card driver's settings.

    A. Navigate to Start>Control Panel>Display

    B. In Windows 7: On the left-hand side of the window, choose "Connect to a
    projector". A dialog box will popup. Choose "Duplicate".

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro

Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.

Display Problem

Try connecting an external monitor if this also shows a "bad" picture then probably the graphics chip on the laptop is faulty.
