Can I close the lid?

I've just bought my first laptop and will be using it as a desktop replacement - will plug in my big LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse. Will it damage my laptop if I close the lid when not using its own screen?

    Just for the monitor. There should be a key on the top row that you use with the FN or Function key to activate the external monitor.

    Since this is your first laptop you will learn as you go. Just refer to your user's manual for the exact key functions.

    Have fun.

I want to use a external monitor keyboard mouse and close the lid and keep working on the computer


I'm not sure if you'll be able to close the lid because you might need a laptop that is designed to work with a docking station to do that.

Anyway, you can hook an external monitor, usb keyboard, and usb mouse to the laptop and continue working as usual.

When i turn on my dell vostro a860 the screen is black.When I plug in external monitor shows picture only on external monitor. No boot screen when turning on, nothing, only sound that windows loaded.


Since you say the screen was blinking when you opened or closed the lid: 1) It could be as simple as the cable that attaches on the back of the monitor is loose and needs to be reseated (pulled out and plugged back in) then secure it with tape where the connections meet. 2) It could be that the cable from the monitor that plugs into the motherboard needs to be reseated. You'll need to disassemble the monitor to remedy the 2 problems mentioned. And for problem 2 mentioned you'll need to remove the Keyboard and Palmrest.

Have you shined a flashlight on the black monitor screen to see if you can faintly see images on it. If so, then the problem is your LCD Inverter. You can purchase them for less than $10, but you'll have to disassemble the lcd screen. It sits at the bottom of the lcd screen just above the keyboard.

If you don't see anything when you shine the flashlight on the lcd screen, then your screen is out and will need to be replaced.

I have a Dell Vostro and would like to lock the laptop and use a monitor and wireless keyboard whilst at home. Can you tell me if and how I can do this?


This is assuming you are using Windows 7. (Since you didn't specify. -_-)
Software lock at same time = No. Hardware lock at same time = Yes.
When you have the keyboard connect and the laptop plugged into the monitor, go to your Windows Mobility Center. Go to "Power Options. Look for "What to do when you close the lid." and tell it to do "Nothing".
Then close your laptop and lock it.
Viola.

Has a Toshiba Tecra 9000 won't power up. Power light on front is blanking which appears to be a code 3-3-2


The problem is cause due to one of the following: the backlight or the display, check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes your brightness may accidentally have been all the way turned down, resulting in a blank/dark screen. The monitor controls are on the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys.
Look closely at your laptop's screen if the steps do not restore power to it and if it remains blank. Can you see a faint image on the screen? If so, the backlight may be off due to the LCD "lid close" detector malfunctioning. This malfunction likely happened due to the lid close switch being stuck in the "closed" position even though the lid is open. The switch is located beside the LCD's screen hinges, and tapping the switch a few times should unstick it.
Use an S-Video cable and plug your laptop up to an external monitor, such as your television set. With the laptop and TV hooked up, turn both on and see if your computer's desktop is displayed on the TV. You can also use a fifteen ( 15 )pin monitor desktop monitor by connecting it to the blue fifteen ( 15 ) connector at the side of the laptop if you cannot see anything on screen it is the display problem. If it is, your laptop's display needs to be replaced. If not, your motherboard and/or video subsystem may need to be completely removed and replaced.

While at home I plug a wide screen monitor into my Dell studio 1737 Laptop. As long as I keep my lid open the icons and print on my monitor are the right size. When I close the lid, icons and prints get...


You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.
You should be able to wake the system with an external keyboard, by pressing the spacebar, if the system is sleeping

Signal is not compatible with this input when i connect my laptop


If the screen resolution on your laptop is to high or not supported by the TV, that is the usual error message.  I'm not sure what video output you are using but if it's the common S-video output, high resolutions will not be supported through it so maybe try a lower resolution and work your way up until you get the message again.  Then you will know the threshold.

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.


Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

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
