HP Compaq 2710p: External monitor does not display anything

When connecting a cable to external monitor - monitor says "no signal". In the Control Panel-> Display->Settings-> Advanced-> Intel-> Properties it shows two displays (internal and external) and when I disconnect the cable (to ext monitor) it shows that only one (internal) display is present. So it's like the tablet knows external monitor is plugged in but does not send out the right signal. I tried with three different external displays&cables (which work fine with other computers). Any ideas?

    Thanks, but this did not help. I run Windows XP/Tablet SP3. Problem occurred when I upgraded the intel965 video driver (before this was working fine). I did revert to old driver but the problem remains.
    I also observe one strange behavior.of "Presentation settings". If I set it to "extended desktop" it appears on the second monitor and when I drag mouse - it is there. But if I try to move a window to extended desktop - it goes blank. Any ideas?

Hi,

The display properties indicate the hardware is working, so it's likely just a setting.

On HP/Compaq models you will see a picture, usually on the F4 key that looks like a screen with two lines beside it.

You need to hold down the Fn key(bottom left) and then push the F4 key at the same time to cycle between LCD, external or both.
If it is a newer model, a menu will pop up when you do this asking if you want to duplicate the LCD on the external, switch to the external or extend the desktop onto the external. Select the appropriate setting or continue holding down Fn while pressing F4 to cycle between the settings to the one you want.

If you have re-installed the computer at some point with anything other than the factory recovery set this may not work and I will have to give you a longer set of instructions.

If this works please rate this as fixed, if not reply back and indicate what version of windows you're using and I will post the instructions for the "long" way.

I have an asus x202e notebook that does not display even the power is on and the wifi is lighted but still no display and the fan is not running also, why is my laptop does not display ?


Have you consulted any troubleshooting sections in the documentation for your notebook ? Do so.
Next you could try connecting an external monitor to your computer, using the port on the side of your computer Its a VGA port I believe so you will need a VGA monitor and suitable cable or another type of VDU and cable/adapter. There should be a button on your keyboard to switch displays (built in screen/eternal monitor/both cycling between the combinations on my HP it's the f4 button). If you cannot get this to work it is a problem either with your m/b or less likely software. If your external monitor works then maybe the small cable connecting your computer to its display has become unplugged, or else the screen has failed, most likely the inverter, which can be relatively easily be replaced. If the service manual does not describe these procedures search the internet, most likely there is a video on how to carry out this procedure on youtube.
You might need to carry out a lot of research and reading to diagnose and solve a problem.

Gateway M275 display scambles


I suspect it may be a problem with the video cable coming from the convertible tablet, up through the hinged support for the LCD screen, AND/OR the screen Inverter.

I would like you to connect a VGA monitor, to the VGA port on the back of the convertible tablet. The VGA monitor will now be an External Monitor.

[ Looking at the rear of the convertible tablet, start at the Left side.
Vent, USB port, Monitor port. The Monitor port is the VGA port ]

The VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

Notebook OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the M275's VGA connector. (Port)
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type, allow it to warm up.

Turn the notebook on.
By the factory default settings, whatever is shown on the convertible tablet's internal monitor, should now be shown on the external monitor.
(VGA monitor)

If not, press, and hold down on the Fn key (On the bottom row of the Keyboard, all the way to the Left), and tap once on the F3 key.
(Top row of Function keys. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over Key )

No graphics shown on the external monitor? Hold down on the Fn key again, and tap the F3 key again.
There are at least three options available;

1) Convertible tablet's internal monitor - ONLY
2) Convertible tablet, AND external monitor
3) External monitor - ONLY

If graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video cable, and/or the screen Inverter. At this time we will bypass the LCD screen, and come back to it.

At the bottom/middle of the tablet's LCD screen, is the Hinge. The Hinge Cover is 'T shaped', and has one single Philips screw holding it on.
If you remove the screw, and the Hinge Cover, you will see two wire harnesses.
One Black, the other White.

See that these two cables are plugged in tightly to the connector.

After checking this step come back in a Comment, and state your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Additionally;
Here is the Service Manual (Free) for the Gateway M275 Convertible Tablet,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-gateway

Where it states - Gateway 400, go down to the second line, and across to M275. Left-click on M275.
This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

Hey folks, first time poster here. I have a HP Compaq 2710p Tablet PC. The error is "Non-System disk or disk error. Replace and stike key when ready" Is this drive toast or can the data be recovered? If...


Normally this means the cpu is trying to boot from your cd drive and it is a non system disk in the drive. When you boot your cpu open the drive and make sure it is empty. If so if you have any other disks or mem cards in the cpu then remove them and your cpu should start up. If this is not the case, let me know and I will help you further.

When you connect a data projector or external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the data projector or external monitor first then the laptop. The video info will automatically divert to the data projector/external monitor automatically.
If you have already had powered up the laptop first, most laptops will allow you to toggle between the LCD screen and the external video port by pressing the Fn key plus one of the Function keys, this key will have a screen/laptop symbol.

Screen goes blank (white), sometimes screen display will get big


You can update graphics driver, if that does not fix the issue check the display on external monitor. If the external monitor works fine you can isolate checking the display in BIOS Setup scree (Restart your computer and keep tapping F10 to getinto BIOS). If the same issue in BIOS, you may have to change display of the unit.
