Hi

Fn+F3 is the hotkey for Standby. However you can use Fn+F5 to toggle the display. If Issue persists disconnect the AC adapter and take the battery out then press and hold the power button about 5 seconds. Put back the AC adapter and battery. Turn on the computer. If you need further assistance please post your question.

Good Luck

Does Lenovo 3000 Y410 support dual monitors


Yes.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF.
Connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the back of the laptop.

The VGA port is on the right side, as you view the back of the laptop.
This is a basic example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port, (Connector),

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

NOTE* Color does Not matter.

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

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key.

No?
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

Hold the Fn key down, and tap again on the F3 key.

(The Fn key is down at the bottom LEFT corner of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is at the top of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key )

Need more information post in a Comment.

Top half of my monitor screen shows at the bottom


Try plugging an external monitor to your laptop and see how it displays on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old fat crt's as long as it has a vga cable that will connect to your laptops vga port.

If the display does not immediately show up, then you will have to hit the FN (Function key)+(F1 thru F12) to show the image. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have either CRT/LCD written on it or it will have a display icon on it.

If the image displays correctly on your external monitor, then you will need to replace your lcd screen.

I accidently removed something from my toshiba satelite A55-S1066. now my screen won't come on. Although I hear it. What do I do?


If you can't see anything as it is booting up then the black light on the display is out, as in broken. Get close to it and look on the edges and see if you see any light. If you see something but no picture your back light is out.


There's a function key, look for a pix of a moniter on one of the f keys. That switches it off and on. Try using an external monitor and see if you have a display. It may be stuck on external monitor if you were using one. Using another monitor will allow you to see and change it to the laptop display.

It could also be that the video chip went out on the motherboard...

Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301 PC Notebook will not


Hi! You may want to toggle the function button designated for turning the monitor on or off. Press FN button together with th efunction button that has a monitor image on it. some system uses F2 of F3 button to do this. (Example: press FN+F3 or FN+F2 button together once while computer is on to turn on system display)

I don't have video on my 400sd4 laptop


If the system is booting up completely and you can hear is starting up then the problem is limited to your video.
First try this
Boot up your system so that it's in windows (listen for start sounds and windows music etc)
once you believe the system is fully booted press and hold the FN key. While holding FN press and release the F3 key one time and then let go of FN. Wait a few second and see if the LCD screen comes on. If it does not try FN-F3 a couple more time, waiting a few second in between.
If that does not work then try plugging in and external monitor to verify that the system is working otherwise. If the external monitor does not come on right away then press Fn-F3 again with it attached to allow the system to send a signal to the external port.
If it works on the external monitor but cannot come on the LCD screen, the that indicates a problen inside your laptop or LCD screen.

Connecting Gateway 450 notebook to tv using vga to svideo convert


It is possible that the signal from the portable is not compatible with your convertor or device, however, if you are getting no image at all (not even lines etc.) then the laptop may not be set to send a signal through the VGA port at all.
To toggle the image to the VGA port do the following
  • Press and hold the FN key on your keyboard
  • While holding the FN key, press the F3 key one time
  • Let go of the FN key
  • Wait a few seconds to see if you get anything thing on your external device.
  • If you do not then press FN-F3 a couple more time waiting a few second in between each try.
the Fn-F3 toggle switched between the LCD only, LCD+CRT, and CRT only modes. You may find that it works on the CRT only mode but does not work correctlly with both. When this occurs it's a limitation between the compatibility of the settings requires for both screens, so you would only be able to use each by themselves not together.

Swithcing from laptop screen to lcd monitor


Hi
Connect the monitor, flat panel, or projector to the laptop's 15-pin video connection on the back of the computer as shown to the right. Once connected, your laptop may automatically switch to the new external display or you may be required to press a sequence of keys in order to switch from the laptop to the external display. video.gif For example, often either Fn + F3, Fn + F5, Fn + F8, or Fn + F9 is pressed to switch between alternate displays. So if your laptop was Fn + F3, pressing and holding both Fn and F3 at the same time would switch between displays. Often, the alternate key pressed in conjunction with the Fn key will be labeled as CRT/LCD and/or have a picture of a monitor on the key or close to the key. Unfortunately, the keys pressed to switch displays is dependent on the model and manufacturer of the laptop. If none of the above key sequences work, consult your laptop documentation or consult your laptop manufacturer.
Some laptops also have the ability to have the display on both the laptop and external display and/or one or the other at a single time. Laptops with this ability can switch between these modes by continuing to press the same function keys until in the mode the user wants.

Try this: Open the Control Panel, then Display; check through the tabs to see if the video chip maker has provided the choices you need. I haven't yet seen a laptop in years that didn't allow simultaneous use of internal and external displays although very early laptops did not offer that possibility since there are load considerations involved in running parallel monitors of any kind.
