Settings for dcl lcd monitor

External monitor for laptop displays only about 80% of laptop screen.

Laptop is Systemax, running XP professional

It's a 19 inch monitor; however, the window auto-scrolls; if I try to change the size or make any other change, everything gets wiped

Hi,
Your laptop resolution is greater than the external monitor can handle. From your laptop, try changing the screen resolution to 800x600, if it works, up the ante to 1024x768. You can bring it up again until you find a comfortable screen resolution. You will eventually stop to a point when your external monitor displays about 80% of the laptop screen. That is, back to your original problem. But you get the idea. Cheers!

Screen lights up, but no display dell precision m6300, display with external monitor


Hi,

Looks like the LCD screen has gone bad as you are getting the display on the external Monitor.
Try This to run a test to check if it would still work or not:

1. Turn off the Laptop
2. Press and Hold the D key on the laptop and then press the ower button to turn it on..
3. Leave the D key when it starts

This would run the check on the Laptop and if you see the color bars then the LCD is fine, if not then you would need to get it replaced.

Check this article for more info about this test:

I dropped my dell notebook on the floor. The screen is 80% frozen however when I turn it off and reboot I can tell from the little corner I can see that the computer function but the screen stays stuck....


Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop via the 15 pin VGA connector located on the left side of the laptop.If the laptop display is normal on the external monitor then most likely your LCD (liquid crystal display) panel is damaged and needs to be replaced. The spider web effect is due to cracked display panel.

My problem is I turn on the computer and the monitor. Then the monitor says it has no signal. All the cables are plugged in properly I don't know what's happening. PLEASE HELP!


Is your computer a laptop. I will assume it is since this is a common problem with laptops.

So you are using your monitor as an external device for your laptop.

Does your laptop screen still power on. If so you will need to go to your
control panel under Display and select connect to an external monitor or display.
Varies depending on your operating system. Also if you laptop as a special
key designed for external display you should also click on that key, usually is an
Fn function key. Really hard to help because we do not know which laptop model you
have.

Thank you

My laptop is on and plugged to the monitor, but the monitor says no signal


You have to switch your laptop to a different display mode. Usually it's done by pressing Fn key and F8 - look for a description near this key showing rectangle / rounded rectangle, or text "CRT / LCD".
Usually there are 3 modes:
LCD (internal laptop display) only
LCD + CRT - the picture shows on both displays
CRT - the picture shows only on the external display, allowing you to set a different screen resolution, equivalent to the external monitor's optimum resolution.

DVDs do not play on LCD monitor


If you see the dvd on the laptop and not the monitor:
Your problem is probably with your video card and its settings and not the monitor.
Some video cards wont support dvd playback on two screens at once.
What you have to try is to enable only the external monitor and disable the laptop lcd.
This can be done using shortcut keys on the laptop (usually this involves using the Fn key and one of the F# keys at the same time- the F# key may have a picture of two screens on it or be labeled CRT-LCD)
You can also change the settings in the display properties settings.

Sometimes the display settings as far as resolution are set too high for some dvd players. Lowering the resolution can take care of that problem.

I want to connect a Ultrasharp 1907 FPt monitor to my Dell inspiron. I have a power cable and also one from monitor to lappy, do I need a driver?


Hi,
to toggle the screen between your laptop and the dell 19" monitor. Hold down the Fn key on the laptop and tap the F8 key. The screen would move to the external display.

There are three settings that can be done by the Fn + F8 key combination
1. Both the laptop and external monitor works
2. Only the external monitor would work
3. Only the laptop screen works


Thanks
