this is not a pc problem... this is because the connection loss between pc and monitor... not all pc's have sleep mode in externa vga connection.... it just cuts power off... u can configure monitor of possible to do that..
have you tried if the monitor on another computer?
otherwise it must be bad configuration.. try right clicking on the desktop, click on properties, configuration, and then you will see 2 monitors.. if you go in advanced you can also play there to tell wich one will be the firts monitor..
you could also reinstall the video drivers of your laptop and there will appear an icon on the task bar so you can configure how will the screen be working..
By default, Windows 7 is configured to go in sleep mode whenever you close the lid on your laptop. While this is generally preferred by most users to preserve the laptop's battery life, it might be useful to disable this process. Many laptops provide the ability to connect an external display. In this case, closing the lid would also prevent any signal going to the external display. If you would like to stop Windows from shutting off your monitor when you close the lid, access the Windows Power Options component and disable this feature. So try this, take a look at this KB. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;977307&sd=rss&spid=14481
It might tvhat there are no video drivers on the PC or there screen resolution is too big or too low
Screen Resolution Issue
1. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Display 2. Display Properties should appear 3. Click on the Settings Tab 4. Slide the Bar to the Left or to the right Making the picture almost a square
Windows Vista/ Windows 7
1. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Personalization 2. Click on Screen Resolution 3. Move the bar up or down until the picture turns almost a square
Or else reinstall a new video driver configure the screen resolution again
Hope this helps
Both monitors must be plugged in when the computer is started for the second monitor to be detected, and you must configure the second monitor once the computer has started
In windows XP: control panel -> display -> settings tab -> select second display -> check "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" -> click apply
In windows vista/7: control panel -> adjust screen resolution -> select second display and then under "multiple displays" select "Extend desktop to this display"
The monitor, since it is under warranty is best to be examined by an authorized personnel or replaced. As for your laptop, I dont suppose it has a problem. Only that it should have been configured to send display to the external source once plugged. There are 3 options
Native + External
Your laptop is configured for the 3rd option. You can change this by getting into display properties and under your graphics card configuration. Please do comment if you need further assistance
I think you have an inverter board thats just about dead. It's located in the screens plastic housing at the bottom of the screen just above the keyboard. It's about 4 inches long and a half inch wide.There's just one little cable connecting it. But you have to take your screen apart to get to it. It's easy to replace and relatively inexpensive but it does require a little disassembly skill.
Also ,I will need the exact part number from the bottom of your laptop. There are several different R 40 models, and 2 different screen sizes.
Hi Danny, you haven't been very clear I will assume you pushed the auto configure on the monitor, I would go into the menu on the monitor and reset the size of the screen if it has a setting for that 1024x768 should fix the problem let me know what you find as I have never worked with a hp W19 monitor, if nothing else set the monitor to defaults again in the menu and that may get you back to having normal screens.
