Usb and monitor ports and screen do not seem to be getting power

I tried connecting the laptop to another monitor without success, the usb devices don't light up when I plug them in, but the little camera card does seem to light up. The screen does not make any attempt to start. I have a parts computer if there is some power wire or something??

A cooked GPU will cause that. If it has overheated, there are companies that can replace it but may be time to budget for a replacement motherboard or laptop.

I want to connect a moniter to projecor to cue product so i dont do it on screen..how do i do that...i have tried but without success


you need a laptop with a HD15 (monitor out) port, or a computer with 2 monitor out ports (one for the monitor, and one for the projector)

you then can use the default monitor (as your desktop) to select specific slides to be sent to the projector from within the presentation app (Powerpoint)

If the laptop has a vga port plug a desktop monitor into it. If you do not get output to the external screen then it might be a motherboard problem. If you get output then the problem is between the plug into the motherboard and the screen. Make sure you have nothing else plugged into the computer, ie. usb ports.

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

When i put the USB cable and connect to the LAP, its not getting charged. How can i solve the problem? do i need to install any software?


Hi - when you say "LAP" I assume you mean laptop or notebook computer. Some computer USB ports do not have sufficient power to charge (or operate) devices like cellphones, GPS, large external hard drives, etc. You may be able to charge if you disconnect all other USB devices that aren't needed to run the computer. In order to get around the problem without having to do all that, either purchase an external charger for the GPS (which may be fairly expensive) or purchase a powered USB hub.

An external powered USB hub looks like a traditional USB hub, except for the fact that it has a power cord to connect to your home power outlets. The power cord will often look like AC adapter. The powered USB hub is ideal because they provide additional USB ports, are fairly inexpensive, they provide all the power for the USB devices that are connect to them (the computer's internal power supply is not used) and it can power or charge devices connected to them without needed the computer to be powered on. Simply plug the USB hub into a USB port, and AC power source - then connect the devices that need a large amount of power to the hub's USB ports instead of the computer's USB ports.

The parts included with powered USB hub (clockwise from left): USB hub, USB connecting cable and AC power adapter.

Many powered hubs will work without the power adapter - however they will supply power to the devices connected from the computer's internal power supply.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Do other devices work in the USB ports on the desktop? Do you use the same cable when you connect to the desktop and when you connect to the laptop or does the laptop connect to the printer via the network?

First try a different USB cable, unless other known working devices do not work. Try a different USB port. If you use a hub, try a direct connection.

I suspect you may be dealing with a port issue. Try going to the Device manager from the Control Panel and checking the status on the USB drivers. If you see a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x, try updating the drivers (right click on the driver). Then reboot the computer and check if this helps. Next try uninstalling the drivers and rebooting. Windows should reinstall the drivers.

Check your BIOS settings (depending on the computer press F1, F2, Esc, F10 repeatedly after turning on the computer - this may take a few tries) and make sure the ports are active. Also check in the screen saver advanced settings for a USB power saving setting.

You can try resetting the computer - unplug the accessories from the computer and remove the power cord from both the computer and the wall outlet. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. If you are willing to open your computer, try changing the CMOS battery (wait a minute after removing the old battery before inserting the new one). This battery is usually a lithium button battery (CR2032 is common).

I hope this helps.

Seems that your laptop's USB ports are not providing enough power to the cooling pad. This could be due to you connecting too many USB peripherals to your laptop. Test if you can get the cooling pad to work by disconnecting all other USB devices.
As a permanent fix, you can buy an active USB hub (one powered by external power source) & connect your cooling pad to it.

First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.
