Look at your functions keys. most common is F3 but sometimes another key, it will have a little monitor on it, or two screens with a slash.
Press your function (fn) button and this key, it should toggle between Laptop monitor, External, both.
(this is assuming you want to clone your monitor, which is what you described).

How do I use my hdmi to vga converter on my envy 15


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

When I turn on my HP Pavilion 1x1000 It stays on ,but there is no image on the screen, and stays on please help.


A) Post THE Product Number on the bottom of the laptop. It's in the white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number.

B) On the left/bottom side of the LCD screen frame (Display Bezel), there is a switch. Looks like a small button.

This is the Internal Display Switch. (May not be in this exact position for your model. Look around on the Display Bezel, that surrounds the LCD screen)

When the laptop is closed, the switch turns off the display, (Image on screen), with the computer still on.
Tap it a couple of times lightly, with the eraser on the end of a number 2 pencil.

See if anything happens. That switch may be bad.

C) Laptop off, monitor off, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.

Example of a VGA cable, and VGA connector, (Port),

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

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

C) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type of monitor 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 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 Display Toggle-Over key.

Don't know what exact HP laptop you have. For most HP's it is the F2 key, or the F4 key, that is the Display Toggle-Over key.
(Key has an empty rectangle on it, with a vertical line on each side)

Still no display on the external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again. (Bottom left of Keyboard)
Tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key

NO display on the external VGA monitor, means you have a bad graphics chipset.

(By using an external VGA monitor, you are bypassing the Internal Display Switch, and the Display Assembly. (Internal monitor of laptop)

If you have a display on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with;

1) Video Cable, (Display Panel Cable for HP)
or
2) Display Assembly

Post back with your results, and if you have a display on the external VGA monitor, we will go on.

If you do not have a display on the external VGA monitor, you are looking at motherboard replacement.

Post back in a Comment.

Th problem is lcd


No display on laptop's internal monitor, and there is no blinking cursor?
Start with seeing if it is a display problem.

Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop. If the display does not show on the external VGA monitor, the problem is the graphics chipset.

You did not state the model number of the Fujitsu laptop, therefore all I can give is generic basic information.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.
This is an example of a VGA Cable, and a VGA connector,

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

The VGA connector (Port) on your laptop is either on the side, or back of the laptop. May be marked on laptop as RGB.

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

2) 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 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 the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.

The Display Toggle-Over key is one of the F keys at the top of your keyboard. F1 through F12.
It will have a monitor symbol on it.
(For example most HP laptops use the F4 key )

No display on external VGA monitor? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

If no display shows on the external VGA monitor you have a bad graphics chipset. Motherboard replacement.

If a display does show on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

Post back with the results, after using an external VGA monitor, in a Comment.

Screen blank with white dot


Problem with;

1) Video cable:

A) Video cable connection on motherboard side is loose, and/or on back of LCD screen.

B) Video cable is damaged.

2) screen Inverter:

screen Inverter is bad.

3) LCD screen:

LCD screen is bad.

4) Graphics chipset:

Graphics chipset is bad.

Suggest you connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (Connector) on your laptop.
See if the problem is the graphics chipset, Or video cable, Or display assembly.

You didn't state what manufacturer and Model Number of laptop this is.
All I can do is state generic information.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

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

The VGA connector will be on the side, or back of your laptop.
For the VGA monitor you can use a CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the external VGA monitor to the laptop.
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;

There are at least 3 display options.
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(For an example HP's usually use the F4 key for a Display Toggle-Over key)

Display shows the same on the external VGA monitor?
You have a bad graphics chipset.

[ Some laptops have been erroneously stated as having a graphics card, when in fact they do not.
The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered directly to the motherboard.
This is Integrated Graphics.

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

There is no changeable, replaceable graphics card. Therefore the solution is motherboard replacement ]

IF, the display is good on the external monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

After diagnosing with an external VGA monitor, post back in a Comment.
Also post the manufacturer name, and model number of the laptop.

I have a Dell inspiron 5100. When I try to turn it on, it just stays blank. It shows the Dell and Windows logos, but the screen where I'm supposed to choose my user account doesn't appear.


Are there any error messages displayed? Does the laptop switch off, or does it still remain on? (are lights etc. on?). Also, have you connected to an external monitor recently? I suggest attempting to connect to a monitor or TV using the S-Video or VGA connectors on your laptop, this should get the login screen to show up.

Your TV must have a VGA in port for your to be able to hook your computer to your TV. All you need is a regular VGA cord.

My computer was working fie. i closed it for a second and when i opened it again the screen was black. the back light still worked but the screen was blank


Try testing it out through your external ports like the vga, svideo (hdmi if you have one) port to a external monitor, or a tv and see if you get anything there. If you are able to get display to a tv, or external monitor through your external port, then you might have a issue with your screen inverter, or loose connection somehwere between your screen and your laptop base. Secondly if you can't get a display to a tv or external monitor using the external ports, or you get the same display like your screen, then your vga chipset is screwed, and you motherboard will need replacement since the vga chipset is solder onto the motherboard. At this point you can either try to replace the motherboard, (which is going to cost you almost or more then a brand new laptop) or decide to go ahead and get a new laptop.

Can't connect to external monitor or to Sony bravia tv. When vga connected nothing happens at all on laptop but external monitor says " check cable" ( have tried another cable ). If connected in power off...


You need to:

- Connect everything with the laptop turned off
- Boot the laptop
- Use the Fn key plus F8 or F9 (I'm trying from a small picture of the keyboard!) to cycle through the external display options.

Broken screen, external monitor via VGA won't


Press "Fn+F7" once, wait a few seconds, and press it again, to "cycle" through all the possibilities (LCD-only, VGA-only, both).

Try the monitor with some other computer (desktop or laptop) to see if the monitor works at all.

Restart your computer -- does the initial "splash" screen (showing CPU speed and RAM-test) show? Does the "Windows" screen (with the crawling worm) show on the external monitor?
