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!

Hi my MacBook pro screen isn't working. Any solutions?


Have you connect your macbook to an external monitor? If this works then it might not be too bad (lcd inverter) but if no signal comes to the external monitor then it might be bad. Try this 1st before doing anything else.

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

My macbook pro wont start and i can hear the noise of the starup but the screen is black


Connect to external monitor to isolate the problem. If you get a picture on external monitor, then you know your screen is fu.k.d up. Since its a MacBook Pro, it might still be under the 1 year warranty, so take it to the Apple store and have them deal with it. If you get no picture on the external monitor, then you know you got a problem with the computer.

I have just hooked up an external monitor (LG Flatron) to my macbook--no problem with web pages, but I am unable to see my desktop or any word files. When I boot up, it says analog in the upper right...


  1. When you connect an external monitor to your MacBook (or PowerBook, for that matter), you can combine your MacBook's LCD and your external monitor to create one big monitor. That means when your mouse pointer goes off the edge of one, it will appear on the other. Open the Displays Preference Pane to configure the resolution and orientation of the two monitors. This type of configuration works well when you want to keep your main work on your larger external display, but still keep things like IM, iTunes, and email constantly visible on the smaller laptop LCD.
  2. Some windows act like they don't want to be dragged on to your external monitor. If a windows is being stubborn, try dragging it up to the menu bar, and keep dragging, even if stays stuck below the menu bar. Sometimes once you have dragged it far enough that it has room to render the entire window, it will jump to the other monitor (Terminal used to have this problem, but Apple fixed it some time ago). If that doesn't work, try dragging it from a corner of your monitor. My Adium contact list doesn't seem to want to live on my external monitor, but I can coerce it up there by dragging up from either corner.
  3. When your laptop is open, you can't switch to using the full resolution of an external monitor. I have no idea why, but it's a fact of life for MacBook users. You can use both displays in "extended" mode, or you can mirror your MacBook's display (which most likely doesn't use the full resolution of your external monitor), but you can't switch to using only the external monitor. Very strange.
  4. If you close your laptop, you can actually get the full resolution of your external display. Put your MacBook to sleep, connect your external display and an external monitor, and wake the computer up by pressing any key. You will have full use of your external display while your laptop is closed.
  5. If you really want to have your MacBook open while only using an external display, after following the procedure above, you can open your MacBook, and it's screen will remain off, which means you can still use the MacBook's keyboard and trackpad. Why you can't get into this mode using F7, I have no idea. This is a good technique for allowing some heat to dissipate while still using an external display so the lid of your MacBook doesn't melt or warp.
  6. You can boot your computer using just an external display. Just connect your external display, open the lid, hit the power button, and close the lid again immediately.
  7. In order to output only to an external monitor, you have to have the power cable connected. I tried for several minutes yesterday to get my MacBook to wake up with an external keyboard and monitor before unpacking my AC adapter from my backpack, and it wouldn't work. It took me a while to make the connection (no pun intended), but I eventually discovered that with the power cable attached, everything works as expected.

Monitor non functional


Am I correct in understanding that your MacBook is operating properly, but when you attach your external monitor it doesn't show anything?
I often connect my black MacBook 2GHz to my flat screen's VGA port. Sometime the screen doesn't respond for one reason or another. The fastest solution is typically to mirror the screens then return to normal. When that doesn't work, it's usually enough to restart the MacBook while it's still plugged in to the external monitor. If neither of those work, try connecting to a different monitor or finally try replacing the connector.
Unfortunately those connectors don't have the best life spans. (See Apple's customer reviews on DVI connectors.)

LCD / External VGA output problems


Hi
If you are still faced with this problem.....
Possibly the video card has gone in the unit. The original screen on the laptop may have had an blown inverter which would not stop the funcioning of the external display. However for the external disply to stop working would suggest the video card. Before going this far have you checked to see if there is power to the external monitor? Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If the monitor works with another computer you can be certain there is more wrong with your poor old iBook. You will need to take it in to be looked at.

Hope this helps.
