Hi psans,

Sorry it took sometime, out fishing and with the indulgence of skotkolr...

Re you concern on your laptop display -
Based on your brief description/post, I am assuming that you have a laptop (of unknown make & model) and you have connected an external monitor (again of unknown make & model) but there is no display on the external monitor. You have tried lowering the screen resolution and still a no go.

A couple of ideas:
1. if the external monitor is connected to the laptop using the yellow RCA connector, then you would have to reboot with the external monitor already powered on and connected prior to restarting your laptop. Additionally, if the external monitor is a standard TV you may have to lower down the PC's resolution really all the way down as well as lower the Screen Refresh Rate;
2. it may be necessary to enable external monitor in your laptop's "Display Properties";
3. to cycle through the different display options, you need to press Fn + F? key not 5. The F? depends on what PC you have. it normally is an F key with monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

On laptops, there is a key combination that will allow you to toggle between laptop screen, external monitor, or both. Look for a "Function" key, or FN. The location will vary, but I have seen it usually on the same row as the spacebar. Hold that down and look in the Function Keys row (F1, F2, etc.) and find the one with an icon of a screen (on my laptop, it's the F4 key). Hit the function key, and it should cycle through the three modes I mentioned above.

Good luck.

Attaching a second monitor to a Laptop, if its fairly new, will automatically load a second display. Right click the background on your LAPTOP screen and select properties after you attach the monitor cable. Go to settings. You should see two monitors. If not, you need to press Fn+ F6 on most Laptops to activate the second monitor. See your owner's manual on function key (Fn) Choose the second monitor screen and set the desired resolution.

Trying to run monitor from my lap top and goes in to autoconfig and I see my desktop, when autoconfig is complete, I get blank screen.


In general more info is required, but most likely this is an issue with your display settings. Try the following:

1) Try pressing the Fn and Display buttons (at the same time) on your laptop. Try it once, twice, and then a 3rd time.

Chances are that your laptop is displaying in a resolution that is not completely compatible with your monitor, so when the display settings are switched from laptop LCD and montor, to monitor only, the resolution should adjust automatically.

2) If that doesn't help you, try lowering or adjusting the resolution on your laptop. If in XP, right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust it. If in Vista/7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there.

Good luck. Let us know what happens!

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.


Good Luck!

Monitor problem


Melanie, The computers video cards resolution and / or refresh rate is set incorrectly for your monitor. The easiest way to fix this is as follows for Windows 2000 or XP: -While the computer is first starting press the F8 key every second till the Advanced Options Menu appears. -Using the up or down arrow key select the ?Enable VGA Mode? and hit the enter key. -You will be taken to another screen that may or may not have several items to select from. Find your operating system, highlight it and hit the enter key. -Your computer should now load Windows using a generic display mode. Don?t be alarmed if the objects on the screen appear large, this is just temporary. -Log into Windows (if necessary) and you should now see your desktop. -Ignore the popup in the lower right hand part of your screen saying that the display is set very low. Simply right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) make sure it is set to 1280 x 1024. This is the typical resolution for a 17? LCD but be aware that your monitor will probably be capable of supporting other resolutions. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -The typical LCD is set to 60 Hertz; however, I have seen where some Acer monitors like 70 Hertz. I would start with 60 for now and change it to 70 if this doesn?t work. -click the OK button twice. -Restart your computer normally and see if it works. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
