Try going to Control Panel on your computer and going under the display option. Under Settings you will find two monitor options. On the display number two, try selecting that to extend your windows by checking the appropriate box.

I purchased a component cable (rectangular plug I think called VGA plugs into female left side laptop toward the back and red, blue and green RCA type jacks for LG TV.


Look for a Function Key (fn) on your laptop for activating the VGA external monitor.

If your fn button is blue (for example) all of the keys on your laptop that are activated when you hold down the fn button will have an option in blue. Look for a blue icon on a key that roughly looks like a monitor or two monitors.

With everything hooked up, press and hold the fn key, then tap the corresponding key to turn on the external monitor.

Having said that... the cable you are describing has a VGA (blue 15 pin connector) that plugs onto the VGA jack of your laptop and splits that signal into a set of component RCA plugs. Its critical how you plug these into the correct place on your LG TV component connections. I know such adapter cables exist but I've never seen one work.

JUST KIDDING!


http://www.asus.com/ph/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_VivoBook_X202E/

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Right side, all the way to the back)

Or you can use the HDMI port, and use an HDTV.
The HDMI port is on the Left side.

Turn the monitor/TV on.
Turn the laptop on.
Does a display show on the external monitor/TV?
No?

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
Go to what you are using as an external monitor. VGA monitor, or HDTV. Hold the Fn key down, and tap the F8 key until you get what you want.

Have a display on the external Monitor/TV?
Problem is NOT the graphics chipset.
Problem is the Video Cable, or LCD/Touch screen.

Post back in a Comment, as to the results of the external monitor test.

MY acer ZD1 screen has gone black how do i connect it to a pc screen blind


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the Right/Rear of the laptop.
Example of a VGA connector (Port), and a VGA Cable,

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

Scroll down a little for an example of a VGA Cable.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Yes. You can also connect an HDMI cable to it, and HDTV with this capability.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not;
There are at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor.
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key. At the SAME time tap once on the F5 key. The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

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.

Make sure that you set your laptop to external display by using the proper F key, located on top of the keyboard. It looks as though there are two computer monitors on it. My Gateway is F4 for example. Press the function key and the proper F key simultaneously. There are a few choices, so you may have to push it more than once. I hope this helps and good luck!
