Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

Monitor in "off mode" cant get it to be in "on mode"

I've plugged a second monitor from an old computer into my laptop and try to get a second diplay up on it, everythings working apart from the fact that my monitor comes up with the words "off mode" whenever I click the buttons on it. My laptop is recognising the monitor though. None of the buttons on the actual monitor seem to be doing anything apart from bringing up the message.
How do I get it to work?!?!?!

Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Flashing screen


Flashing screen when? What is on the flashing screen? Try plugging an external monitor on the laptop and see if it flashes. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and plug it to the laptop.

It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If it diplays on the borrowed monitor that proves your video card is ok and your original monitor is bad. If it does the same flashing on the borrowed monitor, then the video card in the computer has an issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

My compaq sr181nx diplay monitor is now blurry


This could be a faulty monitor. Trying plugging in a different monitor to the computer.. If you continue to have the same problem with the second monitor, then it is your video card or on board video that is going out. If the video is fine after you tried the second monitor, then you need to get a different monitor for your system.

Hi my IBM 2635-6AU, ThinkPad 380ED 26356AU screen is dark and i cant see


From what you are stating it seems like your backlight in your lcd needs to be replaced. Plug an external monitor up to your laptop. Press the fn & f key (the one with the picture of a monitor in it.) Your diplay should project to the monitor. Display is ok.....replace the backlight.

Hope this helps you

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged


This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
