    Thanks a lot guys!
    RobLW, apparently it is detecting fine, and I should hope it should since it is a DELL monitor attached to a DELL notebook...although perhaps that does not count for much these days.

    I had this problem occur once in the past with the same machine at an international conference & same thing happened with a projector....system promptly crashed a few minutes later. End result was a complete wipe of hard drive and total fresh reinstall of all software. A year on and I have the problem again.

    But get this....I rebooted defragged the hard drive and now it is all fine again! However, I suspect that PauldLucky is on to something. I am gonna check out the Intellitype advice and try and end this ****** for good!

    Thanks for all your help! I could find nothing online regarding this problem so I really appreciate your fast help! Cheers!

    When you turn on the external monitor after attaching it to the notebook, is Windows automatically detecting and installing the device correctly?

Hi,

This poblem occurs on the computer which have the Intellitype software for their keyboard.

Uninstalling it from the system will resolve the prolem.

Try downloading & installing the latest version of the Intellitype software from the microsoft site.

You can download the Intellitype 6.0 from here

Good Luck.

Why can't I view the entire screen on Windows 8.1. Why does it cut off the tiles on the left?


Windows 8.1 keeps adding tiles of programs that you install and all tiles/ programs cannot be listed/accomodated in a single view and so you have a scroll bar at bottom that can be used to browse through all the programs that are installed on the system.
also please try changing the display resolution to meet the best resolution (for ex: 1440*900pixels) that your widescreen monitor supports.
as that seems to be the actual issue

I've got a Dell Inspiron One 2305...the problem with it is that when push the start button I can actually hear the computer starting up BUT the display is BLACK....no logo,no sound,no nothing. It&


You can try connecting an external monitor to see if you get a display on the external monitor. If so then you have a problem with Inspiron LCD screen or video circuit on the motherboard. Here is a link to the setup guide which has the location of external VGA connector on the back view:

How do i switch to external monitor


Virtually all IBM and Lenovo ThinkPad and ThinkCenter laptops allow you to hook up an additional monitor or projector to the computer. When you add an external monitor or projector to your notebook, you can choose to view the display on the computer, on the external device, or on both the laptop and the external monitor or projector at the same time. Toggling between viewing devices is as simple as pressing a couple of keys on the keyboard.

Shut down the laptop. Plug the VGA monitor cable from the external monitor or projector into the blue VGA port on the back of the computer. Turn on the external monitor or projector first, and then the Lenovo laptop. Allow the notebook to boot into Windows normally. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys at the same time to switch the display from the laptop to the external monitor or projector. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to enable the display on both the laptop and the external display device. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to display screen contents only on the laptop LCD. choose support you need http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54305.html http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4YQHUC.html enable tv out on thinkpad http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58625

Dell speaker driver missing for dimension 6400 speakers won't work


Do you mean Inspiron 6400 laptop? You need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the 6400 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.


Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience.
Thank You.
