Dual monitor problem

I am trying to use an additional monitor to show a different screen to that of my laptop so that I can use PowerShow for PowerPoint - Laptop to show slide sorter and other monitor to show Slideshow. But whatever I try it does not seem to recognise the PnP monitor as an additional screen but just as a duplicate of what is on my laptop
What do I have to do to configure my laptop properly?

Adding additional screen makes it run slower


actually driving two monitors put a heavy load on your video processor

you probably need a memory upgrade at least double what you have

also try this

start

control panel

system icon

on left shows advanced settings(should be last on list)

look for video or visual performance button(should be first under general tab)

change radio button from Let windows decide to

best performance

that might help

Hi,

Try lowering your laptop's screen resolution and refresh rates to the lowest possible.

Additionally, you need to press Fn + F? keys on the laptop to cycle on laptop display, laptop display + external; display, external display.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I Have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and tried to add a 21.5" Dell Monitor. The color on the monitor was purplish, and even talking with the service techs, couldn't resolve the problem. They sent a second...


Your laptop's video circuit is integrated into the system board (motherboard). There is no VGA card. Try using a different VGA cable, if no go, then your motherboard has a problem.

Having problems getting my powerpoint slide to show from the laptop onto the screen. Not sure what the function key is?


try Fn key with F5 or F8. depends on your model of laptop.
Look for the screen symbol on one of the function keys and try pressing that once and wait several seconds to see the screen changing video. Then press again if not correct.

If nothing is appearing on the projector, then connect a lcd monitor on the laptop and try the function keys intil it works thyen swap the monitor for the projector, and start the input scan for the active video input.

Yea i have a gateway 450sx4 laptop and when i turn it on it stays black for a while and when the screen finally turns on it blurry and its different colors and it just shows lines how can i fix this?


It's likely that your screen is "fried" (faulty) ... try to connect your laptop to an external VGA monitor, and see if the screen shows up (on the external monitor) properly. You may have to toggle the output display (device) from computer screen to external monitor ..using Fn+F3.
If it displays on your external monitor properly, it means your laptop screen is no good. You can replace the laptop screen, or just continue to use the external monitor.
If it does the same (blurry & different color, etc.) on your external monitor, then, your video card/module on your laptop is bad. This usually happens less often.

My screen only shows a picture for a few seconds


Try connecting a different monitor to your computer, to see if that monitor shows the same symptoms. If so, your computer, not your monitor, is the problem.

Try connecting your monitor to a different computer (desktop or laptop) to see if the problem "follows" the monitor.

Remote display/monitor


First try to reinstal the monitor display driver. Failing that working I would next borrow a monitor to see it it works. That wil tell you if it is a monitor or video card  problem.

Cannot project movies in powerpoint


I have encountered this same problem once in the office when i was trying to do the same thing.

The solution:
*Assuming you have windows xp*

1) make sure the projector and the laptop are connected (FN+F8), do a right click anywhere in your desktop then go to settings by default Monitor 1 would be your Lattitude D620 and Monitor 2 should be your projector, to make sure of that click on the 'identify' it should show a 1 in your laptop and a 2 on the projector
2) now select monitor 2 and select 'use this device as my primary monitor' check mark, by doing this your videos should play in your monitor but they will be a blank/black screen on the laptop (basically we are reverting the order).

Sincerely
McVerick
