My monitor is black but i can still see the desktop somewhat. what could be wrong with it?


Your lcd's inverter has gone bad. Google: "Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 Inverter". They're about 20 bucks. Then to replace Unscrew or pry apart your screen bezel and it will probably be under or above your lcd. Then just unplug and replace.

So I hooked this moniter up to my hp and all I get is two blinking lights


One monitor serves as the primary monitor, and this monitor displays the Logon dialog box when you start your computer. In addition, most programs will display windows on the primary monitor when you initially open them. You can select different screen resolutions and different color quality settings for each monitor. Multiple monitors can be connected to individual video adapters or to a single video adapter that supports multiple outputs. To configure the arrangement of multiple monitors:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  3. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors. This shows which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  4. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
NOTE: The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.
Change Primary Monitor
  1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click the monitor icon that represents the monitor you want to designate as the primary monitor.
  2. Click to select the Use this device as the primary monitor check box. Note that this check box is unavailable when you select the monitor icon that is currently set as your primary monitor.
View Same Desktop in Multiple Monitors
  1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click the monitor icon that represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.
  2. Click to select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box. After you enable this feature, you can drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors. Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.
Move Items Between Monitors
  1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors. This shows which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  2. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply.
  3. Drag an item on your desktop across your screen until it appears on the alternate monitor. Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.
Using DualviewOn many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor that is attached to the first video out port. Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use the Display tool in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. You can use Dualview with docked or undocked portable computers.

LG Flatron L1930B lcd monitor - 3 vert. stripes, center one dead


sounds like the pixel controllers have gone bad or one or more of the color (RGB, RED, GREEN, BLUE) controllers have gone out. this is quite common in lcd monitors/tvs and is usually caused by pressure on the edges of the screen (you grabbed it too tightly when moving the monitor) or just faulty controllers. they are expected to eventually go bad, ask LG for yourself, they will tell you the same thing. If you just bought it, that can be considered a mfr defect that they will replace, IF IT IS IN WARRANTY!!!!! Unfort. there is no fix due to seal that placed on the actual lcd panel inside the plastic casing. Youd spend more money trying to find the part and install it than just buying a new monitor. hate to say it but im an avid gamer and have gone through about 4 lcd monitors in tha past 3 years due to everyday use

Dual monitor setup


Assuming you are using Windows Vista:

All you have to do is connect your laptop to a monitor via a VGA port (located on either the side or at the back of your laptop - it's the port with about 15 holes).

Once connected , you will need to configure how your 2nd monitor will function - as an extended or duplicate monitor. To set this you will need to go to Display Settings > and select your option.
