Re: studio display m7649 picture will not come up when...

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.

Monitor not coming on

First check to see if you have a Funtion button that looks like it has a desktop pc on it and a screen next to it...this button, when pressed with the "fn" key switches the display from external to internal and visa versa...if this dosen't work..then you can try to connect an external monitor to the vga connector to see if the video driver is working ok...if you get a picture,,,then you will need to have the laptop serviced for a dead screen problem...another possibility is that the backlight may have become defective on the laptop and there againg will need to have it serviced

My samsung LCD monitor display blank but blue light is blink.


Check to ensure all connections are in good place and are properly connected, if they are and yet no display, the picture board on your monitor is faulty, since the power light is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.
take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board.

Your Studio Display uses an ADC connector, which is very much like DVI but also supplies power for the monitor and adds USB pins so that you can use the USB on the monitor. In order to use it with something that has DVI instead of ADC, you need this adapter from Apple; there are a couple places that have it $5-10 cheaper, but you may as well get it from the people who made it, Apple probably has a better return policy than anyone else in a situation like this. You hook this adapter into the wall and into your laptop, and hook the monitor into the adapter. Hope this helps!

My laptop is on and plugged to the monitor, but the monitor says no signal

You have to switch your laptop to a different display mode. Usually it's done by pressing Fn key and F8 - look for a description near this key showing rectangle / rounded rectangle, or text "CRT / LCD".
Usually there are 3 modes:
LCD (internal laptop display) only
LCD + CRT - the picture shows on both displays
CRT - the picture shows only on the external display, allowing you to set a different screen resolution, equivalent to the external monitor's optimum resolution.

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.

Trouble hooking external Viewsonic monitor to Toshiba laptop

If I understand You are using a Monitor connecting the Monitor...
and the background is shared byboth the display however the Cursor stays only on one of them at a time.However it can be toggled among the 2.

If yes,
then this Feature is called the Extended Display.
Use the same Key Combination that you would use for external Display one More time and it should Work.
