Plug in the screen to the laptop if it had the port for one.
then right click on the desktop and select personalize, find "Display settings" and then use that to configure your system for a 2nd monitor.

Plug the VGA cable from the monitor into your laptop's VGA port if you have one. If you don't, you cant connect them.

I need to extend my screen so one programme is on tv while desk top stays on computer


Just hit function then F7 (on most laptops). This will allow you to use VGA out and your laptop screen at the same time. Easy-peazy!
FYI, that is how people do presentations where the screen is behind them. You just hook a projector up to the VGA out, then cycle through function F7 until both the laptop and the TV are on, or just the TV is on.

If you have access to a desk top computer monitor, plug it into the side port on the laptop. (usually a blue port) and see if you have a video signal. If the Desk Top Monitor functions, and the Laptop is black; your Laptop screen is NG.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

My laptop has lines and blotches on the screen. Can't tell if it's loading or not. Is it fried?


Try hooking your laptop up to a monitor from a desk top computer and see what happens. If you still see the lines, etc... you have a problem with your video display card/driver, if not, the laptop screen is bad or needs repair. You may be able to find a used laptop screen on ebay...
Good Luck.

Screen does not work on my latitude c840


If your LCD screen on the laptop does not display a picture and if you hook up an external monitor and it doesn't display anything either, then your video card is bad.
But--before you go trash the thing, when you hooked up the external monitor, did you push the Fn key and the corresponding special function key at the top of the keyboard that switches the output to the external screen? (It does not just display to the external screen without you telling it to.
What your uncle describes is a problem with the laptop LCD monitor, not the video card.

Screen shift


Try setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz. (Maybe 75).
Is it xp?
Right click an empty part of the screen, properties, under monitor (I think; I'm on Vista) you can choose the refresh rate.
Most LCD's should be at 60 Hz.
