Hello,
Sounds like you got it right. When the Laptop draws power it will trigger the Surgemaster to turn on the monitor. The only problem you might have, is being you are using a laptop the power supply might not draw enough power to trigger the energy saving features.
These devices work the best when a tower PC is plugged into the Master slot.

Sony Bravia built in DVD player wont accept the discs - why is this?


Performing a power reset
1. Turn off the television.
2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
5. Turn on the television.
How to establish an HDMI connection between a TV and other device.

2. While turned on, unplug the power cords for the TV and device from the electrical outlet.
3. Disconnect the HDMI cables from the TV and other product.

5. While the HDMI cables are disconnected, plug the power cords back into the electrical outlet.
6. Turn on the TV.
7. Re-connect the HDMI cables.

Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

Wont turn on


1.Plug the Inspiron's AC power cord into a power outlet and try to power on the laptop again. By far the most common cause of a laptop's not powering on is a dead battery.
2.Plug the AC adapter into a different outlet to check for a "dead" outlet. If you have the cable plugged into a surge protector, plug the cord into a different slot on the surge protector or "bypass" the surge protector by plugging the cable into an electrical outlet. If the Inspiron now powers on, replace the surge protector or have an electrician examine any "dead" outlets in the home.
3.Open the battery bay on the underside of the Inspiron by sliding the battery bay latch release lock upward and the battery bay latch release to the right. Once both latches are released, the battery bay should open.
4.Remove the battery.
5.Purchase a compatible replacement battery for laptop. Be aware that using an incompatible battery can cause damage to your computer. If you have any doubt as to compatibility, the best option is to purchase the replacement battery directly from your laptop's manufacturer.
6.Install the new battery by following the battery-removal procedure in reverse order. Once the new battery is installed, try again to power on the laptop. If there is still no power, seek professional repair advice.

I hope you find it very helpful.

• Ensure that the power cable is securely connected between the
scanner and a live electrical outlet or surge protector.
• If the power cable is connected to a surge protector, ensure that
the surge protector is plugged into an outlet and turned on.
• Disconnect the power cable from the scanner and turn off the
computer. After 30 seconds, reconnect the power cable to the
scanner and then turn on the computer, in that order.

Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.


    Thanks for rating

    Good luck

    Laptop battery is not charging


    Hi, this information represents a basic troubleshooting guideline. Refer to your user guide for specific charging and connection instructions. Manuals may be available online in the Support Web site of HP.

    Remove the battery from the computer.
    Confirm the battery contacts are free of any foreign material that may prevent charging.
    Reinsert the battery into the computer.
    Verify that the AC adapter cord is properly connected and plugged directly into a known working AC power outlet.

    NOTE: If the battery charges correctly when the AC adapter is plugged directly into an AC power outlet, but not when plugged into a power strip or surge protector, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the computer battery or AC adapter.

    Verify the correct AC adapter is being used.
    Ensure the AC adapter box power light is on. This will be an illuminated green light.
    If the AC adapter power light is not on, the AC adapter and power cord will need to be replaced.
    Verify the charging indicator is illuminated on the computer.
    If the issue still exists, install a different compatible HP battery, if available.

    NOTE: If a replacement battery charges and operates correctly, the problem is with the first battery.

    If neither the original nor a replacement battery charges, service may be required for the computer.
