I connected RGB from toshiba m45-s169 to tv. Had a signal but now cant get it back. Tried updating video driver. Help?


You can switch to an external monitor, TV 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 Dell = Fn + F8

I need to know the function key that I can use to stream video via an s cable to my external monitor. My labtop is a Dell D600


Right-mouse click anywhere on the Windows "wallpaper".
Click "Properties".
Click "Settings".
You should see TWO screens -- one for the internal LCD screen,
and one for the SVGA output.
Click "extend my Windows desktop onto this screen".
Then, you can pick-up your "streaming-video" window
and "drop" it onto the second screen.

Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.

Wanting to use tv as monitor with benq a52 v03 joybook


Yes, you need to press the key combination for your laptop to direct the video output through the external VGA port. It varies by laptop, but it usually involves the use of the Function (Fn) key and another key like F4...look for a picture of a screen in the same color as your function key.

How do I use s-video output to s-video input on the tv


Once they are connected via a S-video cable, you need to hold down the Function button on the keyboard (near the lower left corner, beside the Windows key) and press the key along the top that has the picture of the external monitor. These function buttons are used in conjunction with the function key (hence the writing is the same colour) much the same as a control key or a shift key.
The button will toggle through 3 modes - internal display only, external display only, and both displays.
