Question about Cornea MP 704 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

External Monitor I'm trying to use my Cornea MP704 as an external monitor for my MACBook running Leopard - 10.5.1 - and I can't get it to work. I can see my wallpaper on the monitor, but none of my icons or desktop stuff shows up. Do you think this is a compatibility problem? The monitor works fine with my G5 running 10.4.11

No. This is almost certainly a setting issue. Go in to the control panels and change the way the monitor is used. I.E. extension desktop, mirror, etc. Then check the settings for the second monitor and make sure it is not set to some huge size or resolution. This is a function of the MacBook and OSX. I had a similar issue when connecting it to a 71" DLP.

I am using a MacBook with an Acer Monitor with a mini connection. The monitor shows the start up screen of the MAC but known of the icons nor does it reflect what is on the MacBook while I am working.


This is a very simple solution, fortunately. The default behavior of an external monitor connected to a portable Mac is to act as extra space, effectively extra screen "real estate," where you can move windows or do whatever else you need to.
Verify this by moving your mouse to the right-hand side of your screen, and then keep going - you'll see your mouse appear on the external monitor.

If you want to have the external monitor reflect exactly what you are doing on the primary monitor, simply go to Apple menu > system preferences > displays > arrangement and check 'mirror displays.'

And that's all there is to it!

No image on screen


Make sure the monitor is working first. Try hook it up to a regular PC. If it works on a regular PC then make sure your Macbook's output is setup to show the video onto an external monitor.

If you can't get the monitor to show video on a regular pc then that means the monitor is bad.

Need driver for Cornea MP704


Hi
I have the same monitor on one of my test benches. For a long time I tried to find drivers for this because I thought it would make a difference. Finally a year or so ago I found a drivers company which said they had it. For $20 I could download it and many others. I did so and didn't really see much improvement when I installed it. I finally got to thinking that maybe I should look closer at this code I purchased. Well as I suspected this code was actually the Microsoft generic LCD monitor code which had been relabeled. I turned it over to Microsoft. But to answer your question I have never found drivers that are specific for any Cornea monitor. Sorry

Samsung T220 monitor hook up to new macbookpro-how-pc driver only-help


Hello,

I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.

Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).

There are two great instructions on how to do this, just google for "macbook switch to external monitor"

One here.

Second one here.

Cornea Monitor Troubleshooting CT1700


it could be something as simple as your power settings in control panel> power options, then the first window called power schemes pops up and all monitor, harddisk and system standby should be set at never. Also check on you monitor menu for any power saving options and turn them off. If the monitors still turn off then there has to be a deeper fault with the monitors and not with the power options.
