Connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop. Power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop, the video data will automatically divert to the external monitor.

No screen display msi megabook s260


If you have a desktop monitor available try hooking your laptop up to that. if you get a display on your desktop monitor then that means your laptop screen needs replacing. If you get no display on your desktop monitor then that means the GPU chip in your laptop has gone bad.

Monitor hook up


You should be able to connect the LCD monitor providing your laptop has got a VGA connector to allow this, then you will need to change your display settings depending on whether you want the same desktop on both monitors or whether you want to extend your laptop desktop on to the second monitor.

I have a toshiba laptop with bad screen.I would like hook up external monitor as a primary monitor


Laptops dating back some 10yrs ago had VGA ports on them. Unless your Toshiba is a dinosaur, it should also contain the VGA port. From this port, you could hook up an external desktop style monitor and still use your laptop.

Laptop doesn't see the monitor i attach to it


1st off there is a Fn key, I think Fn + F5? to turn the monitor on. It is a toggle button that toggles between only the monitor or monitor and Laptop screen both or just the laptop screen.

I hope that can help, if not, please tell me what you have tried. As in, does the monitor work on another PC/Laptop?

G'luck
