You have function key (FN) that you need to hold down while pressing the icon screen key or CRT key depending on the model of your laptop at the same time. If you toggle this 3 times each provides a no image to the projector or an image to the laptop screen or projector and laptop image.

When I turn on my HP Pavilion 1x1000 It stays on ,but there is no image on the screen, and stays on please help.


A) Post THE Product Number on the bottom of the laptop. It's in the white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number.

B) On the left/bottom side of the LCD screen frame (Display Bezel), there is a switch. Looks like a small button.

This is the Internal Display Switch. (May not be in this exact position for your model. Look around on the Display Bezel, that surrounds the LCD screen)

When the laptop is closed, the switch turns off the display, (Image on screen), with the computer still on.
Tap it a couple of times lightly, with the eraser on the end of a number 2 pencil.

See if anything happens. That switch may be bad.

C) Laptop off, monitor off, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.

Example of a VGA cable, and VGA connector, (Port),

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

You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

C) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type of monitor allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
There are at least 3 display options,

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key. At the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.

Don't know what exact HP laptop you have. For most HP's it is the F2 key, or the F4 key, that is the Display Toggle-Over key.
(Key has an empty rectangle on it, with a vertical line on each side)

Still no display on the external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again. (Bottom left of Keyboard)
Tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key

NO display on the external VGA monitor, means you have a bad graphics chipset.

(By using an external VGA monitor, you are bypassing the Internal Display Switch, and the Display Assembly. (Internal monitor of laptop)

If you have a display on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with;

1) Video Cable, (Display Panel Cable for HP)
or
2) Display Assembly

Post back with your results, and if you have a display on the external VGA monitor, we will go on.

If you do not have a display on the external VGA monitor, you are looking at motherboard replacement.

Post back in a Comment.

I can't get the image on my Macbook to project using a Mini display port to VGA adaptor to connect to an Epson projector. It only projects the screen saver background image...any suggestions?


Go to system preferences and then displays, there will be a check box indicating to activate video mirroring. Click on the check box and what will show is what is showing on the laptop. Hope this helps.

I can't get a picture when I hook my projector up to my laptop.


HELLO,

If your LCD or DLP projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?

If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:

* Press Fn / F7 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F7 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.


Hope this helpout....

Want to use my tv as a monitor for my pc


Yes!
You need to look what ports your TV has and what ports your computer has.

If its a newer TV it will look better.
the Ports on a PC to connect it are VGA, HDMI, DVI and S-video

HDMI:
http://www.360drives.com/images/xbox360-hdmi.jpg

Now that you know what they look like look at your computer and look at your TV and see which ones you have in common. A adapter might be required.

Use the best one! From Best to Worst:
HDMI, DVI,VGA, S-video.

Connect hp pavilion to mitsubishi ws55511


Well, I do have an answer for this one, but your not going to like it. The only resolution this tv is compatible with through the VGA input is 640x480 @ 60 Hz. I have hooked my laptop up to a tv similar to this one and the best way of doing it is basically any other input that is available out of your laptop. Mine was an S-Video port. It just doesn't look good through the VGA. I know it's not the answer you were looking for, but it's the truth.

VGA Port:
b1eb548.jpg

Connect here a stardard Monitor to see if you have image.
But you have to press the combination of FN+F4 to alternate between Laptop LCD and External Monitor.

Anyway at starup you can see if you have any image when the BIOS starts...

FN - is in the lower left side of your keyboard, next to CRTL.

Connect to a Sony LCD Projection TV


Only if the tv is vga compatible. If it has a vga port then it is, a vga port is round and should be marked vga. Then you will need a vga cable, Walmart carries them. Keep in mind that tv's are made to be tv's not computer monitors, you may not get the resolution you want or are expecting.

Multi-media projection without image


A great deal of the time DVD players are very restrictive on outputting to multiple sources due to copyright protection. In my experience, if you use your laptops function keys to toggle output (For example, on my laptop, I hit FUNCTION + F4 to cycle between LCD,LCD+VGA,VGA), you should be able to disable the laptop's LCD display, only outputting via the VGA cable. It's worked for me with my HP VP6111 and Windows XP in the past. Hope this helps!
