How can I hook up my laptop to my laptop?

This samsung model monitor comes with a dual link DVI-D plug only> The adapter that I got to make the connection with the laptop fit perfectly but the screen on the monitor never came on. The monitor only gives a quick orange flash when pressing the power button and nothing else. What is the problem?

2nd monitor does not work with DVI to VGA converter cable. My video card has VGA and DVi ouputs.


The problem could be in the adapter to the video card. There are different types of DVI connections. If the adapter does not have the proper set of pins then the card will not recognize that a monitor is connected at that port. Monitors themselves have no bearing on whether a single or dual monitor set up will work or not. Digital Visual Interface Follow this link, it may help you determine if the adapter you are using is correct for the graphics card.

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean by VGI. I will assume you mean VGA (Analogue - D Shaped with 15 pinholes).

When pixels or line of lixels fail on a monitor, they usually fail in spots or in a vertical lines due to the design of the matrix.

Since both monitors are sharing a single cable and the graphics card is a new one, the fault automatically isolates itself to either the monitor or its VGA connector.

Check that none of the pins in the end that connects to the faulty monitor are bent and/or touching one another and shorting.

Then try changing the resolution of the graphics card itself and test the monitor's performance at various settings to see if the resolution seeting is straining against the limits of the monitors range.

Right click on open space in the desktop > properties > settings > click and hold the slider scale step by step, up and down the scaled to test the monitor > apply > ok > test for a reasonable period > reset.

Also test the monitor with a single VGA cable to another computer (even a laptop, using the Fn key + external monitor function key).

Thses tests should tell you if the monitor is failing.

I hope this helps.

How do I hook up the moniter to the CPU?


First figure out what output video the computer has. These days it can be VGA, DVI, or HDMI. Then determine what video inputs are on the monitor (same list). Then plug in the desired cable. Many monitors only come with the VGA cable. If you do not have a VGA port on the computer you would need a DVI to VGA adapter to use that cable. Otherwise buy the DVI or HDMI cable. (DVI to HDMI cables exist if you have HDMI but no DVI on the monitor and only DVI on the computer. However, you need to check your video specs closely. A Single link DVI is different than Dual-link DVI and the cables are not interchangeable.)

Once the data and power cords are plugged in, power up the monitor and then the computer. The computer should find the new hardware and install (or ask for a disc to install) the drivers.

I hope this helps.

How to add second monitor to asus cg5270?


The Asus Essentio CG5270 is a desktop computer, so I see it was placed in the wrong category. No prob!

Certain selected models of the Essentio CG5270 come with a graphics card. If you have this graphics card, you can use two monitors at the same time. (Dual monitors)

If you do Not have one of the selected models with a graphics card, you have to purchase, and install a graphics card.
You can purchase a decent graphics card that has dual DVI ports, and is relatively inexpensive.

Looking at the back of your computer,

1) View the purple PS/2 port. The port where you can plug in either a Keyboard, or a Mouse.

Come straight down to the blue VGA connector. This port is to connect a VGA monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or an PCD monitor that has a VGA cable.
(Flat screen monitor)

Look to the immediate right of the blue VGA connector. This white port is a DVI connector.
You can connect an LCD monitor to it that has a DVI cable.

This two ports are Onboard graphics ports. (On the motherBoard)

You Cannot connect a monitor at the same time to these ports.
BIOS will only recognize one port.

You have to have a graphics card also.

You can connect two monitors to a graphics card,
IF, it has two graphics ports. For this model it looks like the best they are offering, for connecting two monitors is a DVI port, and a VGA port.

You Cannot hook a monitor up to the Onboard graphics port, and to the graphics card port.

BIOS will only recognize Onboard, or a graphics card. It won't do both.

IF, you have a graphics card.

There are four horizontal slots, on the bottom of the computer tower. IF, you have a graphics card it is usually in the second slot down.

It - Should have a white DVI port on the left, and a blue VGA port on the right.


Again as stated above, you can purchase a graphics card that has two, (Dual) DVI ports on it. Then connect two monitors to the graphics card.

(Digital Visual Interface:
A DVI-I female port is White in color, and has 3 rows of 8 holes. To the right of the holes is a metal bar, shaped like a Plus Sign.
{ + }
There is a hole in each of the four corners, of the Plus Sign.
Four holes in total.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

VGA:
The VGA female port is usually Blue in color.
There are 3 rows of 5 holes. They are staggered.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If you wish you can plug 1 monitor into the VGA port on a graphics card, and the 2nd monitor into the DVI port on the graphics card.

They also make a Male DVI to Female VGA adapter plug. Has Male DVI pins, and female VGA socket holes.

This is for a monitor that has a VGA cable, and you are adapting it to plug into a DVI port on the graphics card.
Useful if you have two monitors with a VGA cable.

(They also make a Female DVI to Male VGA adapter. Make sure what you want, and what you are purchasing)

NOW, (Not shouting),

The following applied to Windows XP. I see the Essentio CG5270 comes with Windows Vista.
See if the following will crossover to Vista.

1) You have two monitors plugged into your graphics card. Monitors are On.

2) Computer is turned on next. Windows loads up.

3) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.

4) In the small menu that comes up, go to the bottom, and left-click on Properties.

5) In the small Display Properties window that comes up, left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You will see a large blue rectangle with the number 1 in it. This is your Primary monitor icon.
This is your main monitor.

You will see a smaller rectangle in the background, and it will be 'ghosted' out. This is your Secondary monitor icon. This is the second monitor you hooked up.

Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.

7) The Secondary monitor icon will 'light up'.

NOW,
IF, your Primary monitor is sitting in front of you, and your Secondary monitor is sitting on the Right, it's okay.

IF, your Secondary monitor is on the Left, you need to make a change.
Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon, hold the mouse button down, and drag it over to the Left side of the Primary monitor icon.

Why?
Because you need to have those icons sitting the same way, as your two monitors are sitting on your computer desk.
More will be revealed as you read on.

8) Go to the bottom of this window. You will see -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor,
and a square box to the left of it.

Left-click in the middle of that square box.
Go to the bottom right, and left-click on Apply.
Go to the left of Apply, and left-click on OK.

Bling! Your second monitor has your desktop on it!

When you go online with your computer using dual monitors. Your Primary monitor will have the what you see online. Your Secondary monitor won't.

Go all the way to the Left side of your monitor screen, with your mouse cursor.
Left-click, and hold the mouse button down. Drag your mouse to the Left.

You should see what you're seeing on the Primary monitor, being dragged over to your Secondary monitor.

No?

Then go to the Right side of your Primary monitor screen, and drag it the other way.

1. Yes, the monitor will just display the resolution set by your laptop.
2. There should be a VGA port on your laptop, it's a trapezoid shape with 3 rows of 5 holes and usually blue. Since your monitor only has a DVI cable, you need to get a DVI to VGA adapter to be able to plug your monitor into this spot.

Samsung T220 monitor hook up to new macbookpro-how-pc driver only-help


Hello,

I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.

Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).

There are two great instructions on how to do this, just google for "macbook switch to external monitor"

One here.

Second one here.

Switch to alternate 2 computers and dual monitors


What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.

I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.
