Dell 1703fpi


Dell 1703fpi LCD monitor,

http://philadelphia-pa.americanlisted.com/computers/dell-1703fpi-17-lcd-monitor-vgadvi-usb-hub-50-phoenixville_21225579.html

I got that part Dan.........

What I need is what Model Number of Dell Inspiron it is.
This is on the Bottom of the Inspiron laptop.

Why?
Because I do not know if the Dell Inspiron laptop you have, has a DVI port, or a VGA port; for an external monitor......

Generic information while I wait.........

Example of Digital Visual Interface port, and corresponding cable,

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

Example of Video Graphics Array port,

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

Can be on the side, or back of laptop.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the matching video cable from the external monitor; to the laptop.
Now turn the laptop on.....

By factory default settings, the display should now show on the external monitor. (Dell 1703fpi)
No?

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external monitor
3) External monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key. (Usually 2nd key from left on bottom row of keyboard)
AT THE SAME time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.

Which one is that? Dunno.
Laptop model number was not stated.
For a Dell Inspiron though, it's usually the F8 key.
(F1 through F12 keys at the top of the keyboard)

Hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the F8 key.
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

IF, F8 is the correct key for Display Toggle-Over, and there is no display on the external Dell 1703fpi; then I suggest you have a problem with the video chipset; on the motherboard.......

Awaiting reply in a Comment.

Regards,

I cant get the infocus lp70 to display whats on my computer. i have it connected to my computer.


Look on your keyboard for a dual display symbol (looks like 2 monitors) usually hit Function (F8) and that will cycle you thru the output options that the computer can do.... Good luck and have a great day.... Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

What function key, etc. do I need to use to communicate with a digital projector from my inspiron 1545 laptop? ...


The on-line documentation is scanty (there are about a dozen Ultralight models, but I could not find a link to manuals for any of them), but I've found the following general information:

To cycle between LCD, projector, or both displays, look for a Fx key (it may be F8) with either a monitor icon or "LCD/CRT" over it. To use the key for this operation, hold down the Fn key (labeled in the same color as the monitor icon, probably located to the left of the space bar) and press the Fx key. The brightness and contrast controls work the same way.

I found no reference to controlling the projector from the keyboard. The USB connection on models that have one works in the opposite direction; it lets you use the projector's remote control as mouse buttons to go through slides in a presentation.

Your dell should pick the TV up as a monitor if you have the VGA cable connected. The vga cable has a blue color on the TV but on the laptop, the color of the port is usally brown or dark in color. Windows should pick up on the new device and enable it. The Dell has an Fn key combination to allow you to toggle through the integrated / external monitor choices that you would have with two monitors active, that being clone both desktops to both monitors, extend the desktop from the laptop to the TV, use only the tv and turn the integrated off, use just the integrated and leave the TV off. The key combination is: Fn + F8
