My asus universal 3.0 docking station will not show monitor with my ux32vd Zenbook


Ok It would help if you mentioned what operating system you have! Windows 7 or 8 or MAC
In windows go to display then resolution you will have a choice to duplicate displays or extend displays, make sure the external monitor is plugged in to the VGA or HDMI port.

Why does my monitor have a dull display?


not it isn't the card
go to control panel , display and personalization, click on the display , click on the monitor (1 or 2) and adjust the pixel size by sliding the knob to the desires screen size
click apply and ok
after a few minutes you may get a message saying are you happy with the setting --will revert back in 10 seconds ---you just press apply or ok and that saves the setting

Just purchased a , HP xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base cant get the component output to work with my TV, how can I get it to work to expand my monitor? thanks


Hi orlandobusa1,

If assuming your connection is via VGA cable, because that's the only way I can see for you to get external video, connection should be a VGA cable from the docking station to the TV. Once you have cables plugged in, all you need to do is to set external display from your video card control panel.

Most computers have a video card control panel, please follow instructions below for the settings:

1. Right click on your desktop and choose graphics control panel
2. Once windows is open, look for multiple display settings, and there you will see if the TV is detected or not
3. then you should see a setting there, to either, extended or clone your display.

Solution provided are basic for setting up external display, however, my solution would not be applicable if the cables or ports used are different.

Hope this works!

Thank you for using Fixya,

Remove Any Docking Stations or Port Replicators From the Computer Note: Docking stations and port replicators are optional equipment. If you are unsure if you have a docking solution attached to your computer, refer to Table 1 and Table 2 for examples. To remove the docking station or port replicator, perform the following steps: Shut down the computer. Remove the docking station: Universal Docking Stations: Disconnect the docking station's USB cable from the computer. D/Port or D/Dock: Remove any cable locks from the security slot on the right side of the docking station. Move the slide lock forward to the unlocked position. Press the Eject button and lift the computer from the docking station. C/Port II or C/Dock II: Remove any cable locks from the security slot on the left side of the docking station.

unplug everything from the docking station, and press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. Afterwards, plug in only the power and the monitor to the docking station and dock the laptop (make sure the laptop is turned off before docking and turn on after docking). If you still have issues it could still be hardware or software at this point. If you do not have issues, plug in one thing at a time to the docking station (mouse, keyboard, ect.) and restart the laptop each time until the problem starts again. this is how you will know if a device in the DS is causing the issue. if your monitor is vga (port on back of docking station where monitor is plugged into is blue) try plugging it directly into the laptop. also try plugging in the keyboard and mouse directly into the laptop (if they are usb) and anything else you may have plugged into the DS. This will be a better way of testing your devices. If all devices work fine, i would say that it could be more of a hardware issue with your DS.

Running two external monitors


Okay. Thanks for the info too...

I looked at the user's guide for this laptop and see exactly what you're saying.
I found it here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/MacBook_Pro_Users_Guide.pdf

So, the laptop comes with a DVI to VGA adapter because the only port on this system that will allow you to connect an external display is one that connects to a DVI port (in short, you don't have a VGA port).

moz-screenshot-3.jpgmoz-screenshot-4.jpgOkay, you have a couple of options here:

  1. You can purchase a docking station which, depending on where you buy it from, will be more expensive than the other options. If you decide to purchase one, first make sure that it will provide the ports that you need. For example, my docking station has one DVI port and one VGA port. If and when I connect a second monitor, I will connect it to the DVI port using a single DVI to VGA adapter (as I don't have any flat panels that connect directly to a DVI port). 63efdf2.jpg If you purchase the docking station, make sure it has both the DVI and VGA or you're stilling floating up the same creek without a paddle.
2. You can't use the cable that came with the laptop because it only connects to the DVI port
of your laptop with one VGA connector on the other end, therefore, supporting only one
external monitor. You need either a DVI to DVI and VGA adapter or a DVI to VGA and VGA
adapter
.

This is a DVI to DVI and VGA adapter
28fefbe.jpg

This is a DVI to VGA and VGA adapter

bacdb24.jpg
Okay, now that we covered that information, let's get down to business...
Since you already have your monitors and probably don't want to spend $200-300 on a docking station, this is the best and quickest solution:

You have two monitors both with VGA connectors. Your laptop has 1 DVI port on its side (correct?).
Look at the image of the DVI to VGA and VGA adapter. You need to purchase one of these. It will allow you to connect one end to the DVI port on the laptop and connect your monitors to the two VGA ports on the other end...viola!!

You can use the DVI to VGA and DVI adapter but it would complicate your situation unless you were trying to connect a VGA and DVI monitor so we can eliminate that option unless you are desparate and that's the only adapter you find to purchase.

These adapters are very inexpensive (probably anywhere from $9 to $19. You should be able to purchase them at a store that sells computers, hardware, software, etc. You may even find them at Wal-Mart or RadioShack. If need be, you can purchase one online. However, if you go out and search a couple of stores or computer places, you should find one and be able to connect your monitors when you get home.

Feel free to leave any comments if you need further information.

Thanks for using Fixya and don't forget to rate this solution.

Dvi port doesn't work with 23'' samsung monitor


yeah, you can set the display setting as extension display your DVI

Intel, ATI,Nvidia have tools also to set up,

i have ATI and use the ATI Catalyst tools and autodetect the monitors that i connected to my docking station, intel and nvidia also have this utility.

it depends on setting if u wanted the external monitor as CLONE monitor of your laptop or extension Monitor...

or they might have problem on DVI port of your docking station.

download and install the video utility ( must have .net installed before you install the utility)

the utility will detect your video ports (VGA,DVI,S-video)

let me know the update ..

Inspiron 600m,"no input signal check video cable"?


Do you have an external monitor for use when the laptop is on the docking station? If so, does your laptops screen come on when it's not docked?

If you're using an external monitor while the laptop is docked, make sure that the screen selection is for external monitors, by pressing/hold the FN key and then press the F8 key to cycle through the choices between LCD, Monitor/LCD or Monitor only.

USB ports in docking station stopped working suddenly


I was having the same problem - the USB ports seemed to have stopped working so I could not use the mouse, keyboard, or printer, even though the monitors and power could still operate through the docking station. Finally, I just unplugged the docking station for 30 seconds, plugged it back in, and everything resumed working. I was surprised it was that simple, but it's working for the moment.
