Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I received an LCD monitor - Samsung SynMaster 152N and would like to use it as a 2nd monitor but do not know how to "install" it in order for it to work as a 2nd monitor. Do I need a CD? Or can I install it by plugging it into my laptop?

    HP laptop, XP operating system. Not sure what a video card is. Is it needed in order to utilize a 2nd monitor? Sorry I'm a novice.

  • dmiller188 Apr 29, 2008

    OK I did what you said and there is no Displays tab. The tabs are General, Color Management, Adapter, Monitor, Troubleshoot and Intel R Graphics Media Accelerator Driver.

    Any idea what I should do? BTW, thanks for your help so far. I really do appreciate it.

Yes it is needed to utilize a 2nd monitor. Laptops are ready to do two monitors so you are in luck. It should just be plug and play for the most part but I will give you a run down of what you are going to need to do. Go ahead and plug in the new monitor into the back of your laptop in the designated port. It will be the only one that the cable will fit into. Then turn your lap top on if it is not already turnd on. Right click on the desk top and click on properties. When the properties opens up click on the settings tab and then click on Advanced. Once the new windown opens up click on the Displays tab. in this tab there should be a few different monitors listed, your default panel will already be active so just to the left of it (atleast on my window) will be the second monitor. Click on the power button for it then click apply. The system will do an automatic resolution change and then you will be promted to either keep the setting or to change back. Click ok and presto you have both monitors up and running. Any more questions please feel free to ask.

    I would like you to do something for me... click on start then go up to my computer and right click on it then click on properties. In the properties window click on the hardware tab. Then click on the Device Manager button. When the device manager opens up I waant to you find the Icon that is listed as Display Adapters and click on the box and tell me what It has listed as your display adapter. So the display adapter and the lap top model is what I need right now. And I will try to make the rest of this quick and painless as possible so you can enjoy the multi moniter joys of computing.

Does it have warranty? If so, you can contact your monitor provider to check it with their technical support personnel. If the unit is out of warranty, check if it has power or the power indicator is responding. If responding, try pressing the auto configure button.

Check if the monitor cable is OK. If you have spare working monitor, you can isolate the problem.

If the monitor has the problem, there is a deffective capacitor inside it or a portion that needs to be re-solder.
