Wavy display issue ... please assist!

Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

LCD VGA Display goes on and off.


Check refresh rate and setting for external display output. It won't work with unsuitable screen resolution, color depth or refresh rate. Check all three points and I believe you can troubleshoot the problem this way.

Attach the monitor using the vga cable and right click on the laptops display and get into the settings tab. Go to the advanced setting and see if the option is there to "enable" a second monitor, there are times when this setting has to be clicked on. Also make sure your graphics drivers have been updated.

I think there is some severe problem in the VGA of the laptop, that is not supporting your LCD. There may be some thing relating to a very sensitive golden color strip in the laptop that is used to VGA signals. If you have opened the laptop for repairing then it can be a issue. Better to try another VGA first and then tell me what happened.

Check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged


This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...
