The settings are in your Video card settings. The video settings can walk you through the process. You did not tell me anything about the video card or the computer.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

I have msi model ms 6873d i try to connect with tv with vga cable in tv i can only see the backround of the pc why???i change the analysis but the same only backroung i saw in tv.


Your computer is set to extended display. That means that your desktop will extend to the other screen. I think what you want to achieve is to clone your display. That means that you are going to copy what ever you have on your portable system to the TV.
The path to the display settings differs from one OS to another but you have to get to the same option whether it is XP, Vista or Win7.
Right click on the desktop screen then go to Graphics option. Look for an option to clone your display. That should show the same thing on your TV as you have on your portable system

Hi i just formatted my Compaq nc6000 and installed windows xp. i tried to use an external monitor and what i see is only the screen saver on the external monitor. what do i do?


Assuming you have the proper video driver installed on your system after the reinstall, you should have the options to cycle through video output modes. On a Compaq nx6110, the keys to do this are Fn+F4. The F4 key has a symbol on it that looks like a large box with a smaller box inside that has vertical lines on both sides of it. Look for that symbol on your keyboard in case it's on a different key, or it may even say something like LCD/TV, which does the same thing. Press that key combination to cycle through the options. Normally those options are: laptop only, TV only, or laptop and TV, not necessarily in that order. If you get it so that you can see it on both, then you should look at the display settings on the laptop and make sure mirroring is turned on. Normally you can find this by right-clicking an open spot on the Desktop, then looking for either Graphic Options or Graphic Properties. If you don't see either of those go into Properties. From there look through your settings and try to find one that controls display cloning or mirroring, which is what would cause your laptop to output the same thing to an external display.

Screen display is sideways


Hi all5r_mine,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following options:

Upside Down or Sideways Monitor Display

Problem Description:
The user accidentally pressed a keyboard combination that turned the entire monitor display upside down or sideways. The user cannot recall the keyboard combination that caused the problem and has no idea how to rectify the display.

Possible Solutions:
Some graphics cards have rotation "hot keys" enabled by default and this is probably the most common cause of this problem. The exact procedure for rectifying the display may depend on the particular brand and configuration of the graphics card in the problem computer. One of the following options may help resolve the issue.

Option One:
Try using the keyboard combination, "Control + Alt + Up Arrow Key". Control + Alt along with one of the arrow keys is a fairly common rotation hot-key configuration and may just do the trick.

Option Two:
If Option One doesn't work, see if there is a graphics card icon displayed in the Notification Area (near the Windows Clock). Clicking (or right-clicking) the icon may reveal a "Rotation Settings" option that will allow you to revert to "normal" display.

Option Three:
If neither of the previous options help, try the following procedure.

1. Right-click an open area of the desktop and click "Properties" to open the "Display Properties" window.

2. Click the "Settings" tab and then click the "Advanced" button to open the monitor settings window.

3. Click the tab corresponding to your graphics card. You may need to click one or more buttons within the tab to reveal a rotation settings option. Exactly where rotation settings are located will depend on the brand of graphics card installed.

4. Once you locate the rotation settings, choose the "0 degrees" or "normal" option to change the display to upright. The rotations settings may also give you the option of disabling rotation hot keys so that the problem does not happen again.

5. Click "OK" to save changes and exit out of any open properties windows.

Navigating through menus and choosing options when the display is abnormal is difficult but certainly not impossible.

Hope it helps.

Please rate this solution if found useful.

Best regards,

HDMI from laptop to Mitsubishi TV worked once and stopped


Sounds like you set HDMI as your primary display device. Try reconnecting to HDMI and use the Mitsubish to make your changes while the laptop is connected. You will need to click the LCD Icon when it shows you the 2 monitors then turn off the HDMI device in that menu. Then select the VGA screen as your primary display device. This can be done with either the displays manager or the optional software supplied with your laptops display. remember to always switch back to your primary video device (LCD) before switching off your PC or laptop since the display resolutions on Hi-Def are completely different than a VGA device as well as the display frequency.
Windows, as well as Bios will prevent your PC from displaying resolutions and frequencies that may damage your Video card.

First turn off TV+PC. Then switch on TV only.Press TV/AV on your remote to AV2 or .. Now switch on your PC. It will detect your TV as a new hardware & install the drivers automatically. You can use options from your graphic card later such as dual monitor or clone monitor..
