Question about Targus (ACP60US) Docking Station

My external monitor has a male connection on its cable. My laptop has a female connector so no problem, but the docking station has a mail connection. Female to female connectors seem to be non-existant. What to do?

How do i connect macbook pro 2011 to external Dynex monitor? Close clamshell?


Make sure that the connector fits both Male/Female ports on the monitor and computer match. Then make sure that the software is installed properly. If the cords don't match, go to your local best buy or tech store and purchase an adapter.

Why my usb docks no works in my monitor dell 1707 fpv


I have the same type of monitor and i use the monitor as a external monitor with my laptop. I have already done on my monitor the same thing that your trying to do. The solution to this problem is that the monitor itself needs a "USB 2.0 Data Cable -A- Male/B-Male" which one end of the cable will be connected to your desktop or laptop and the other end which is the around shape goes behind the monitor where the connectors are. I have added the picture of this cable. USB 2.0 Data Cable - A-Male/B-Male - 3 ft 9efce73d-dd31-46b9-97a0-7d3865632e38.jpg

I would like to know what adapter (DVI to VGA Cable Adapter) I need to connect to a Macintosh G4. Thanks


Without knowing what Model Number of MAC G4 you're referring to, I can only give you generic information.

If your MAC G4 has a DVI port it is generally the female style.
The DVI connector on the adapter will need to be a male DVI style.

The VGA end of the adapter will be either male, or female. Most VGA connectors on a monitor cable have a male VGA end.

(The DVI end will have the pins sticking out on the adapter. The VGA end will have the socket holes)

Also stated as the monitor cable end will be a DVI male. The port {Connection} on the computer is a VGA female)

Example of a DVI male to VGA female adapter,

http://sewelldirect.com/dviaftovgam.asp

Barring that you need the other style of DVI to VGA adapter, (DVI female on the monitor cable, VGA male on the computer), this is an example,

[ Note* The newer VGA connectors are also known as an HD-15 connector.
More information on the Video Graphics Array connector,

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

More information on the DVI connector styles, and the Digital Visual Interface technology,

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

If you should find all of this confusing, simply state in a Comment as to what connector is on the end of the monitor cable, and what connector is at the computer.

State whether the connectors are Male (Pins sticking out), or Female (Socket holes)

Changing cable port


The monitor is a Fujitsu VL-15DX5G. 15 inch LCD.

The monitor cable uses a female DFP20 connector.
(Display Port 20-pin)

http://auction.thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp/@0_auc/image50/cb/4a/00010523850/a1/85/img00149858603.jpg

So you need a male DFP20 to male DVI-D adapter, or adapter cable.

DFP20 Male to plug into the monitor cable, and Male DVI-D (Dual) to plug into the graphics card's, female DVI-D connection.

So far, all I have found from a quick search is a Male DFP20 to Female DVI-D adapter, such as this example,

http://www.worldofcables.com/store/viewitem.asp?idproduct=768

Of course this won't do.

IF, this is all that's available for DFP20 adapters, you'll need an adapter of Male DVI-D to Male DVI-D, also. (Yes, I am aware of how crazy that sounds)

(It would appear, adapters are sold to connect a normal DVI-D monitor cable, {Male}, to a computer with a female DFP20 connector)

Should your searching only find DVI-D female to DFP20 male adapters, or adapter cables, then here is an example of a DVI-D male to DVI-D male adapter,

http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/m-sgc-dvid-mm.htm

(DVI-D male to DVI-D male cable would probably be better as there would be less strain on the graphics card's DVI-D connection)

Can i plug a desktop monitor to a lap top?


Yes, if you have a video connector on the back of your laptop. Most often you will find a VGA type connector, which will work with most monitors and LCD's. The connection will look like this.

Hook the monitor up and turn it on.

Then, you will need to go into Control Panel, Display or Personalization
and choose to Extend you desktop, which will allow use of both monitors.

Here's a great tutorial on the subject...

Inspiron 600m,"no input signal check video cable"?


Do you have an external monitor for use when the laptop is on the docking station? If so, does your laptops screen come on when it's not docked?

If you're using an external monitor while the laptop is docked, make sure that the screen selection is for external monitors, by pressing/hold the FN key and then press the F8 key to cycle through the choices between LCD, Monitor/LCD or Monitor only.
