You have to turn on the laptop.Plug in the monitor.then you press the FN key and one other on the keyboard to make the laptop switch over to the monitor.I don't remember which key it is.It's one of the F keys.Look for one that looks like a screen.

Laptop is connected to the external LCD monitor, the monitor is on but screen is blank


There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor AND external monitor source
3) External monitor source ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F5 key.
Hot key through until you find the setting you want.
Release the Fn key

Dell XPS 140 monitor is blank, however the secondary monitor attached displays floating Windows XP. How can I transfer the primary monitor across to the secondary monitory to be able to use the compu


this is from the manual for your computer. you need to get it on both monitors simultaneously.


When you start the computer with an external device (such as an external monitor or projector)
attached and turned on, the image may appear on either the computer display or the external
device.
Press <Fn><F8> to switch the video image between the display only, the external device only,
or the display and the external device simultaneously.

Try hooking it up to an external monitor (or LCD monitor) and see if the same thing happens (first attach a monitor then do a cold start). My suspicion (from the a's you described) is that the motherboard is bad - I call it garbage video. Toshiba dealers will probably charge too much for these replacements. If you're a DIYer or you know a reasonable shop that knows laptops, then eBay would be a good source for replacement boards.

There is no display but fan and diskdrive are working


Attach an external monitor to your vga port and see if you can see anything if you can your screen is faulty and will need replaced. If it doesn't work on the external monitor your system board maybe faulty even with the fan and diskdrive working. If its under warranty get it fixed for free if not buy a cheap one online. Hope this helps

Partial lcd display on laptop


Hi

Sometimes the resolution changes to an unusual setting when an external monitor is attached. make the LCD screen your main monitor and change the resolution to 1024x768 or 600x800 whichever is best.

Stand alone monitor won't come on after Vista automatic downloads


I'm just "guessing" here, but when the updates are installed, you may have to restart the computer. On a laptop, unless you go into the control panel and designate which monitors are installed, it reverts to the built-in monitor and you have to use the Fn and whichever function key controls the monitor assignment.
Yes, there should be a way to permanently tell the machine that the external monitor is the primary one. I think (since I don't run Vista here) that you would get into the control panel and the display settings and designate the attached monitor as the primary. I'd be interested to know if this works. Be sure when you go to the display properties that you right-click on the external monitor and choose "attached".
Anyway, give that a try.
