Purchase just about any USB keyboard and it should work with your laptop as an external keyboard. Even better ... get a wireless keyboard/mouse set for complete freedom!!

I have a dell laptop that I want to add a second monitor to. My monitor is a HP L1755 and my laptop has Windows 7 Ultimate on it. I can not find a driver for this... any suggestions?


Hi there, if i read you correctly you are trying to connect external monitor on laptop. As you use old Monitor for this you can probably establish only VGA connection . For this you dont need any special drivers if you use VGA external connector on laptop. You just need to find out right combination on keyboard to activate external monitor to be activated or right click on desktop then properties and display option multiple displays. Of course when you manage to activate mode for external screen please use lower resolution like 1027*768 for second display aka monitor to test .Cheers

I want to use a external monitor keyboard mouse and close the lid and keep working on the computer


I'm not sure if you'll be able to close the lid because you might need a laptop that is designed to work with a docking station to do that.

Anyway, you can hook an external monitor, usb keyboard, and usb mouse to the laptop and continue working as usual.

How to use external monitor on a toshiba laptop with external monitor


It's probably best to buy a keyboard off auction sites or a new screen, the Function keys are not OS sensitive so a different keyboard will not work with them, they are device specific and require special drivers to operate.
Are keys broken or are they just missing? the membrane will still work to a firm press even if the key is missing.

keyboards can be found on auction sites

sorry I can't help more.

Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.
