Dell Latitude. You have to press the Blue (Fn ) button on the bottom row of keys at the same time as (F8) function key at the top on Dell Latitdue laptops. You can toggle back & forth between laptop monitor only, TV monitor only or both monitors on at the same time. No need to install extra drivers unless something is broken. There are more neat blue function keys that you should read up on. There are a lot more features that come in handy with those.

You need to download the ATI Hydravision software, that is what I had to do before the picture would show up on my TV using the VGA-->Svideo connector
you can download it from here: http://ati.amd.com/products/hydravision/index.html
Hope this helps, if so please rank my answer accordingly please.
Thanks, David

How to make the picture from laptop to projector the right size.


I would suggest it's probably a screen resolution an older laptop VGA output was probably 800x600. The projector will also have a recommended and maximum resolution. The newer laptop will have a much higher resolution. You will need to adjust the laptop's video resolution to the optimum projector resolution

Superscan tv


Since you didn't give the model SuperScan TV, I am going to speculate that your TV has composite video input only; like the 19TVD3S that I know. If your laptop has a VGA port, you will need a VGA to composite video converter. See http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011407&p_id=4724&seq=1&format=2 . Other stores have similar items. You can't use a VGA to composite video cable; these cables are for connecting to projectors that read the computer's RGB signal.

Other converters are available for VGA to component video. If your laptop has an HDMI output, then a HDMI to component video converter would be a good idea. (A few rare computers came with TV out; then you just need the correct adapter for the port to composite or component video.)
Next you may need to enable the external video output in your BIOS. The port can be disabled for power-saving. In that case, look at the splash screen as your computer boots up. It will tell you (in a brief blink) if you need to press Esc, Del, F1, F2 or another key to access the BIOS. Press the key repeatedly after turning on the computer (after shutting down); if you miss the timing, turn off the computer and try again. I've missed the timing several times.
Once the port is active, make sure that the TV is on and set to the video input. Then turn on the computer. If you have Windows, you will have to choose the screen to use for your display. For most newer versions of Windows, right click on a portion of the desktop (somewhere with no icons or running programs). Select Screen Resolution or a similar line. Then you can select using the monitors as duplicate monitors, extended monitors or Monitor 1 or Monitor 2 only.
I hope this helps.

(If your TV has newer inputs, use the VGA port if available. The HDMI port for many TVs do not always interpret a computer HDMI signal correctly.)

Have you tried installing the drivers from Gateway? If no, installing the chipset driver and the VGA driver will fix your issue. You can download the drivers from the following links.

1. Chipset Driver for Gateway 3018gz

2. VGA Driver for Gateway 3018gz

Click the above links to download the respective drivers, or you can get them from HERE.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I am trying to run pip with x box in the pip and regular comp on main screen but it dosent work the xbox is hi def cables


What inputs are you actually using? If you use VGA as the main display, the PIP feature will work with DVI, 480i (SD) Component Video, S-Video, or Composite video. If you use DVI for the computer's input to the TV, the Component video PIP doesn't have the 480i limit.

Thus if you have VGA from the computer, Hi-def from the X-box isn't going to work. Note: The component video can not be the main screen with VGA input in PIP.

I hope this helps.

How do I hook up my lap top to project onto my 42hdt79.


I got it to work using an HDMI output on my laptop. If you are using the VGA connection then you will need to buy a convertor to get it to work. The problem with this TV is that the resolution is 1024x1080 so the picture doesn't look quit right in a when using windows, but video playback looks good.

It would require two seperate components. The first is the cable, the second is the signal converter. The cable can be found at any A/V store and the converter can be found at:

Input video to nec 1740cx-bk lcd monitor


If you are trying to use a computer monitor to watch a DVD, you probably won't have much success unless your monitor accepts the RCA plug. I have found the VGA adapters to RCA plugs will not work in this manner.

Acer Aspire 5585 Laptop LCD Problem


Have you tried booting into "Enable VGA" mode via the "Windows Advance Option" screen? By press F8 before Windows XP loading screen comes up. In this mode the Video Card drivers are disabled. So if your screen appears normal and not white in this Mode then it is your video card drivers which are causing the issue.
