To get the screen to display on your external monitor instead of on the lap top?

Press the Blue FN button with F6

or maybe it's Blue FN button with F7 until your monitor shows the image.

I've had the most success by pressing this key combination once and waiting 3-5 seconds to see if the display changes.

Press again until the desired display comes up.

Good luck !

New computer, new lg monitor. monitor is black


Is the monitor plugged in to the computer's VGA Video Output (15 pin connector, 3 rows of pins)?
Most motherboards are able to supply very basic 640x480 video but you might want to install whatever drivers you have onto the new computer, if not already installed. This should get you off to a start, anyway. After Monitor wakes up the process will be lots easier. LCD Monitors ought to work for initial Installs.

Dvi to vga


You will not benefit from the DVI input unless you have DVI output on your computer. The great advantage of DVI is that the picture is transferred in digital form all the way from your computer to the individual pixels on the monitor. If you only have VGA output on your computer then you will never get a better picture than by using a good quality VGA cable to link that to the VGA input on your monitor.

The DVI plug is designed to carry both digital and analogue (VGA) signals on the various pins, so "adaptors" exist to allow a VGA monitor to attach to a DVI output on a computer. Monitors may also support VGA input from their corresponding DVI input sockets, but the picture quality will never be better than by using a good VGA cable because it is still not using the digital capability of the DVI interface. What's more, because you may need more adaptors and thinner conductors in the cable, you will probably achieve a marginally poorer picture than with VGA to VGA.

When you next buy a PC or a new video card, get one with DVI to take advantage of your new monitor. In the meantime, your best bet is a quality VGA to VGA link.

Sorry that's not what you were wanting to hear, but I hope it will help you avoid further frustration.

Hooking up a HP L1755 17


What is the way to get the very best picture quality when hooking up my new HP L 1755 Flat Screen Monitor to my E-Machine W3052 which is about 3 years old.First would it be compatible or the best idea to hook up VGA to VGA.DVI to DVI which means buying a new Video card for my Computer so the DVI could be hooked up to my computer, or hook up the DVI to VGA Connector ? Would a DVI Video card be worth the extra costs if I went that route ?This HP L 1755 only has a response time of 25 ms, is that good enough to watch Music Videos or not ? I do not do any gaming.Can you tell me the best detailed step by step way to hook up this monitor to my E-Machine W3052 Computer and which Connector to use ? If I need a DVI Card what would be the Part number or Card I would need to get ? Sorry about all the questions.Any guidance and input would be greatly appreciated since I have a disability and need some help and to be honest I do not have 50.00 for a DVI Video card. Sincerely & God Bless ! Thanks,Diehard16
