After connecting it to the laptop using the correct cable you must configure it as a second monitor. You must do that from Control Panel / Display - just make sure it's set as an extended and the resolution is set to the default one of the monitor.

I've tried to connect my laptop to a projector but i just get the information projected but cant be seen on my screen of the laptop


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

LCD video cable. Plus, to connect and activate an external monitor, you click Fn + F2, not F8.

It displays colorful lines on the monitor...cant see nothing


Test your laptop with an external monitor and find out if the external video goes bad too. If both, internal and external images go bad, you have a problem with the video card.
If external works fine and only internal goes bad, most likely it’s either bad video cable or LCD screen failure.

I cant get signal from my computer


Many computers don't automatically turn on the external VGA connector when you hook up the cable to another monitor. One of the function keys (often F5, but not always) will turn on the connector. Usually the key has a symbol on it that looks like a monitor screen. When you press that key it will turn the external VGA connector on or off. On some computers the sequence goes laptop screen on and external monitor off, laptop off and external on, both on. Once you have the external connector turned on your projector will work properly.

Cant see anything but white screen after bootup


Plug in an external monitor and use the F key with the FN to toggle between lcd and external monitor. On my laptops It is the FN and F5. If the external monitor works the problem is the the inverter board, the flex ribbon cable or the LCD. If the external monitor is also messed up then the problem is probably the video card/ motherboard.
