Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S1712 Notebook

1 Answer

I think I need a VGA driver for my toshiba and I cannot find it. The monitor words and desktop icons are huge, and I adjusted the resolution but it didnt fix anything. I went under device manager and noticed that the VGA has a yellow question mark. I have enabled it and tried to update the hardware but it said the hardware could not be updated. Please advise.

Try this, it is for Vista and it's on the toshiba .com support site if the link does not take you directly to the download. If you need one for a different OS. I would try ATI support or a european toshiba support site such as toshiba in the UK, they avoided vista a little longer than north america.

You need to change the monitor resolution setting in your operating system. If you are using Windows then go to Control Panel and look for Display Settings (or something similar depending on the version of Windows). Adjust the Resolution setting (probably using a slidebar on screen) to match the optimum setting of your monitor. If you don't have the monitor instructions try the highest setting first and move down one step at a time until you get a correct resolution on the display.

Is it possible for me to remover the on board screen of my laptop(MX 6956) in order to use the keyboard and HD with an external monitor?


You don't need to remove the LCD screen.

1) Laptop off connect the external monitor's VGA cable, to the VGA port (Connector) on the back of the laptop.
The VGA port looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

2) Turn on the laptop.

3) Plug the external monitor into power. Windows will recognize it as an new hardware device.
Windows will search through it's database of Drivers, and match one up.
However, if you have the installation disk that comes with the monitor, install it now.
Load the software.

(The monitor's Installation Disk (CD) has the proper drivers. It will set the resolution settings at the correct resolution for the monitor. If you do not have the Installation Disk, download the drivers from the monitor's manufacturer website)

4) Once the drivers are installed immediately Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties.

5) Now Left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You will see two rectangular shaped icons. One icon has a 1 in it, the other icon has a 2 in it.
The icon with a 1 in it represents your Primary monitor.
The laptop's LCD screen.

The icon with a 2 in it represents your Secondary monitor.
The external monitor you just hooked up.

Right-click on the 2 icon, then left-click on Attached.
Go to the bottom Right, and left-click on Apply.
Now go to the bottom Left, and left-click on OK.

My monitor changes colors (e.g. normal then turns


Color changes on the display mostly occurs because of a faulty VGA cable or a loose connection of the cable to the VGA port at the back of your PC or Monitor. But if the cable is fixed securely at the back and the problem still persists, slightly move the cable's wire segment while observing its reaction on your monitor. Does it change colors while u do so? If it does even when the cable is securely plugged in to both the PC and the monitor, then u need to change the cable.
As for the visible display area size (technically called the Resolution) right click on an icon free area on the desktop and click Properties. At the top of the form click on the Settings tab. At the bottom of this form find Screen Resolution and adjust it to it your requirements and click Apply. On the confirmation dialogue that pops up click Yes if the displayed resolution suits u otherwise click No and try another resolution size. Hope this helps.

Problem with dirver vga for IBM Desktop with Windows Vista


Maybe it is no the driver. Try to adjust the resolution of your screen. Right click on your desktop > Properties > Settings tab, then adjust the resolution to 1024 x 768 then apply it. If you really need the driver, go to device manager and, look for Display Adapter, right click on the video card and click on Update Driver. Let it search online for the updated driver.

How do I adjust my monitor? My home page does not


I'm not sure what operating system you're using nor what you mean by your "home page". If you mean your browser window doesn't fill the whole Windows desktop, what happens when you maximize the window?

If your desktop looks huge with tiny icons (and tiny-looking windows, if you have any open and not maximized) all clustered in the middle of the screen, your display resolution may be set higher than you're accustomed to. In most versions of Windows you can go to Control Panel | Display, see what your current resolution is, and try adjusting it. The higher the numbers, the "bigger" the desktop area (and the smaller the icons and everything else). If you adjust the resolution higher than your monitor can handle, you may lose your display and have to restart the computer in something like Safe mode to get to Control Panel and readjust it. If you adjust the resolution lower (or run in Safe Mode) your icons may not fit on the smaller desktop and may get scrambled. In that case, first straighten out the display resolution, then move your icons back where you want them.
