Two things to look for:

1) Make sure that the resolution is one that the projector can understand.
2) make sure that the projector is looking at the correct input.

The laptop should have either the external monitor enabled alone or both the laptop screen and monitor enabled.

Keep us posted.

Have a Gateway Notebook KAV-60 with a broken screen. Trying to connect to an external monitor without any prompts or commands, as I can't see the screen. With an Acer Netbook I just plugged in the


Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

I have connected my pc to my Phillips hd tv and set the source on HDMI3 to pc. However, I still don't get a signal. What else do I need to do?


Whenever, you connect a TV or monitor to a notebook, you may need to toggle the display from notebook LCD to external display. For this you need to use the key combination of Fn key and F4 or F5(Which has a monitor symbol on it) to toggle the display.

Assuming you are connected to the projector via the VGA port On the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - there will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, but can be any of the F keys ----- (assuming F5 as an example ) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>

When i hook my L455 to my sony hdtv the screen on the lap top turns black and the tv only says no signal in the pc mode. do i have to change some settings on my laptop


TV:- probably has a PC input - which is a VGA connector looks like this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/SVGA_port.jpg and then you select PC input on the TV to display whats connected to that port Laptop: - Now on the laptop, you will need to select the VGA output to work - thee will be a picture of a screen on one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard, F4, F5 normally on laptops, My Toshiba its F5 ---- (assuming F5) use the FN key and the F5 key together it will then toggle between the following <laptop only><laptop and VGA output><VGA output only>
If you are not using a VGA cable and are connecting by HDMI cable - then there will be a F key to toggle the HDMI output - and you will need to select HDMI on the TV - NOTE: if this has a blue ray player and you are playing a blueray DVD, theres is copyright to protection to only allow one screen to be used, so you will need to toggle the laptop F key to just output from HDMI

I cant transfer my laptop screen to my pc monitor.. how i can transfer it???


Press Fn key + F5 once or twice. Usually Fn+F5 will toggle you between 3 options: internal LCD - Both internal & external - Enternal only. Wait a moment after changing the mode, as the monitor has to detect the signal and react to it.
Once you are on external only, you can change the screen resolution to better suit the external monitor's capabilities.
With the laptop and monitor active at the same time, both will operate at the same resolution.

Toshiba Satellite L25-S1194 attached to TV monitor can't get display on laptop at same time HELP!!


Hello,

Connect your TV to the computer with an S-Video cable. Turn the TV on and choose the AV option (of your TV) to S-Video. It will tell you that there is no signal on the TV.Press the Fn key on the keyboard. While keeping that key pressed, press the F5 key. A small rectangle appears on the screen showing different connection possibilities (LCD, LCD +TV, LCD+CRT, TV only, CRT only). You can cycle through the options by pressing F5 repeatedly. You select the output option (TV + LCD).Release the keys . You will then have your two screens.

Note: I assumed you connect the TV through the S-Video. If your TV can be used as a monitor (it has a VGA adaptor), then with the F5 key select option LCD and CRT

Hope it helps
