The exact process varies by make and model of your laptop, I will give you the "generic" hookup instructions, if you get stuck at any point simply reply back with the make and model of your laptop and the exact model # of the Hannspree and I can give you more specific instructions.

First you need to identify which video out ports you have on the laptop, most current models have VGA which has 15 pins in three rows of five, these carry video only. Many current models also have HDMI outputs which can carry audio and video. Now check the Hannspree and see which options it has. Identify one of the port types which is available on both the laptop and the monitor.

Once you've identified which ports will work hook up a cable between them and turn on the monitor. As far as I'm aware the Hannspree should switch to the chosen input so long as nothing else is hooked to the monitor. Now look at the bottom left portion of your keyboard, there should be an "Fn" key. This works like a Shift key only it activates the pictographs on some of your keys. Depending on the brand the "Fn" key can be one of many colours.

Whatever colour it is, look through the pictures on your F-Keys(the top row), depending on brand you should see , "crt/lcd" a picture of 2 monitors or a single box with a line on either side. Hold the Fn key down and while holding it, press the F-Key you found with one of the monitor symbols. Depending on the brand this will either cycle between laptop, external or both or it will bring a menu up on the laptop screen offering options.

Once you've set it to external or both monitors, if the hannspree isn't showing and image check the manual or reply back with the model number and I can help you figure out how to switch inputs on the monitor.

Hope this helps FixYa,

My Hannspree HF199H monitor developed a distinct reddish hue a few weeks ago, I returned it to Hannspree, who sent it back saying it was fixed, but problem remains. Haven't found a website with Mac driver...

Have YOU tried attaching this monitor to another pc, or laptop to check if it is faulty, it may be a fault on your computer.
If it is still faulty on other machines, get back in touch with the manufaturer.

How do i connect my Hannspree 22" monitor to my Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop?

On the back of your laptop there is a vga connector, to the left are two(2) usb connectors and the right is your network connector . You need a vga cord (if you bought the monitor new it should include one.) Plug the cord into this port and into the back of the monitor. Plug the monitor in and the laptop should recognize thatthere is an external monitor connected and switch the video output to that monitor.

Can a macbook pro work with a hannspree 28" LCD monitor?

I cant see why not, On you TV you have incomming port called HDMI, on your mac you have an outgoing port called MiniDislay for DVI.
You can use that port whit an adapter to make it to a real DVI, the you need another adapter to reform the DVI to HDMI. It can be done, its a little bit tricky, but it can be done.

here is the spec on your mac

And here are the spec for yor tv

Good luck to you
