If the monitor works fine when tested on another device like if you have a desktop or a friend will let you hook it up to theirs, etc. then I suspect the laptop does not have a compatible driver or just cannot drive the monitor with the onboard video card. That monitor may be too much work for the laptop. Also, have you looked into how much just the lcd would be then maybe see if you can get help installing it yourself?
Follow these steps : 1. Check whether your monitor has a DVI (digital) or VGA (analog) port, both of which are generally built in. Contact your vendor if your laptop does not have either. In this case, you can use a special adapter to connect the external monitor. These adapters are model specific and should be bought directly from the vendor. 2. Connect one end of the DVI or VGA cord to the DVI or VGA port of your laptop and the other end to the monitor. Your laptop should automatically identify the external monitor as a new hardware device. 3. Most laptops will show the desktop on both screens by default, which is known as the mirror view. You can use function keys with common combination such as Fn + F2 to toggle between the two screens. Refer to the laptop's user manual for the right key combination to toggle between the displays. Alternatively, with many laptops you can also switch to the extended desktop mode. This means your desktop screen will be stretched across both the monitors. Refer to your user manual to switch to this mode.
Is that a port for an additional monitor or is it simply an alternative method of connecting the monitor to the PC. My monitor has a vga input along with a dvi input and a hdmi input. These are all inputs not outputs.. Unless the port is specifically labeled as an additional monitor output, the chances are its an input..
You may have to use proprietry software to make any additional outputs available.. if the monitor is a Samsung, go to the samsung website and search for the monitor model. or read the manual..
Solution goes this way, to maintain the aspect ratio of the monitor, take note of this. Your HP 10inch notebook have different resolution compare to your additional monitor, But I'm sure you selected the dual view mode or the duplicate mode that is why you have distorted display on your additional monitor, to let the additional monitor decide and maximize its resolution, try using the extended view option, you can change the resolution of your additional monitor without affecting the resolution of your 10 inch laptop.
Go into monitor controls on monitor and adjust as they come up. Unhook monitor, power up computer, cut off, plug in monitor power up computer, right click on screen, settings, adjust for screen size and additional monitor by clicking 2 and saying yes in box. Hope this helps.
You might want to consider a default settings reset. To refresh or reset the monitor back to default settings, unplug the
monitor's power cord, and then press the the power button for five (5)
seconds to drain any residual power. Plug in and then turn on the
monitor. The default settings load.
Additional information about your monitor is available on the Gateway support website.
To my knowledge, most monitors would work with or without a driver. In your laptop pls press Fn + F? keys to activate the external monitor. Pressing on both combination would cycle on the choices of laptop display only, laptop + external monitor displays or external monitor only. The F? key would be specific to the brand and model of the laptop and would normally be with an icon monitor.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
