F8 is only toggling between 2 settings: [1] laptop monitor only and [2] projector only. It is not toggling to monitor and projector. Please help!

Welcome to Fixya. Please follow the steps below so that you can use the mirror or clone display
1. Go into Display Control Panel
2. Click Settings tab
3. Click Monitor 2
4. UNCHECK "Extend my Windows desktop..."
5. Click Monitor 1
6. Click Advanced
7. Click ATI Displays tab
8. In here, the display you're trying to clone to should have a red icon in the corner. Click the red icon, then click Apply. It'll turn on the external display and ask you to confirm.

You should now have a mirrored/cloned external display!

Please let me know what happen. Thanks for using Fixya

I have an HP DV9000 laptop and did a presentation yesterday. When I arrived at the site I had to attach the display to an LCD projector. I connected the project via a porft connector, I believe that...

I think it's probably FN+F8 that may do this on the HP laptops. The key should have a little icon on it in the same color as the function key (typically blue) that will toggle the screen from the laptop screen to the external. There are usually 3 modes to this toggle
1. Laptop screen only
2. External screen only
3. Mirrored on laptop screen and external screen

So try toggling with the FN+F8 key combination.

Also you can probably start up in safe mode to disable the external VGA toggle.

When you see the HP Splash screen, start tapping the F8 Key to bring up the boot menu. From there choose safe mode and see if you get the video back in safe mode....After that reboot and see if it will bring up the video in normal viewing mode.

Good Luck

HP Mini-1101 Atom 1.6GHz 10.1in 2GB 160GB Laptop.Its screen has turned green.Nothing visible. where could be the problem. Thanks

The problem could be with the monitor or the mother board. I would suggest you to take it to the Authorized Service Center.

Just to confirm, I would also suggest you to get the display connected to an external monitor. This could help you to confirm, whether the problem is with the monitor or the mother board. To do this
Connect a external monitor by fixing the wires to the display out and toggling the display from the laptop to the external monitor by pressing Fn + F5

Lcd screen will not light up

You can check to see if the rest of the laptop is working ok, by toggling to an external monitor, by holding down your function key and hitting the monitor swap key, usually f5 thru f8, depending on the laptop. If you get a good display on a external monitor, then you are down to needing a LCD inverter board, or a new LCD.

Computer is on, black screen?

If you have an external monitor try hooking that up, if it works then either your LCD is bad orTry toggling the Fn + the function keys with a monitor on it You may have your output mode switch to the external port on your laptop.
If you power it on and you see nothing at all, not even the BIOS then your motherboard is toast
