Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor Splitter I have an IBM thinkpad docking station that has only one monitor port on the back. I bought a new monitor and wanted to run dual monitors but my question is. If I buy a Y splitter cable to hook up both monitors, will that make them both display the same thing or can I still use the dual monitor setting and have two different things going on the two monitors?

I have CMV 946D Monitor and i am trying to connect it to my laptop via DVI cable and it doesn't work. my laptop is already connect to another monitor using VGA cable. do i need any driver or does DVI...


Sorry, but you can use only one port at a time, not both, It is either DVI or VGA. If you want to drive two monitors, you need to lok for docking station with dual video card.

I am trying to install my new X223W monitor to my IBM thinkpad laptop. I can't do it even though I have the 15 Point connections and the power cord installed correctly. No pic on the monitor.


Go to your helps directory in the Thinkpad and there should be a helps to assist you with you monitor to laptop connection.
Also look at the monitor instruction to see if you have missed a step or two.
There is also an IBM forum online for IBM Thinkpad owners to get specific help.

ViewSonic VP171b resolution problem


If you went from a standard screen to a wide-screen, you have to upgrade the video card.
Also, try going into the menu option on screen and have it automatically detect settings.
First thing you should do is update your drivers.
Should have said that first.

Hi...there,

It's seems your Thinkpad need a new inverter, due to a backlight inverter burnt out. Get a new one or repaired it. Good lucks!

Dell FP1905FP Stopped working


First try on another computer just to see if there is any other problem then the LCD. Also check power supply to the monitor. I believe this has one that's internal, but if external, swap with a similar specs one. If internal, check to see if any popped up capacitors. Video boards are most likely ok.

Input not supported


This is a communication issue starting with your docking station. Sometimes updated drivers are neede to insure that a device works with all devices between your pc and your laptop. Check on Dells website to see if there is an updated driver. In additon you may want to run the cd that came with your monitor, they are always shipped with a cd with drivers on them!
