    I have apple comuters that automatically detect monitors, and it works fine for computer screens, but the LCD TV monitor recieves no signal when I connect. SO far I have used HDMI cable - standard cable for MacMini and MacBookPro that I have used to connect, but on the TV end there is a standard monitor connection. perhaps I need to try with a cable with HDMI at both ends?

Riziel is correct. On some laptops instead of F8 you need to press FN + F2. Just look for the F key with a picture of a monitor on it.
Make sure you adjust the resolution before you try to output to the LCD. I would reccomend setting resolution to 1024 x 768 as this works with just about any display. Once you have a picture you can then set to the native resoltion of your screen. i..e 720p will be 1280 x 720 or 1368 x 768. for 1080p screens the resolution should be 1920 x 1080

Once you connect LCD Monitor to your Laptop! I am assuming your referring to a laptop hookup! Most PC's come with a function key which is labeled FN on your Keyboard next to the Ctl key. It should be in blue Print! You should be able to depress that Key along with I believe F8. this will transfer the image on to your LCD Monitor.

My samsung lcd (model name - 933sn) monitor screen is flickering in every 2 seconds, although i have set the recommended resolution setting 1360 x 768, and the refresh rate is 60 hz, i have already...

This could be an issue with your computer's video output card rather than the monitor. Try connecting your monitor to another known good computer and see if it still flickers; you can also try connecting another LCD monitor to your computer, and see if the same behavior occurs.

Hope that's helpful.

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.

When i plug the monitor into my computer the flashes Benq only!

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer, e.g., a laptop.

The power-cord to the monitor seems to be OK.

Check the "data" cable between the monitor and the computer -- try a different cable.

With the monitor turned on, restart your computer, and watch the monitor. The computer should show some start-up messages (white text over black background), followed by the Windows "splash" screen. If it does, the monitor is working correctly.

Only getting 1/2 screen upper half black

Try connecting the monitor to a different computer.
If you get the same symptoms, take the monitor to a qualified technician -- they probably will charge your $25, and then tell you that the electronics inside the LCD are damaged, and that you'll need to replace the monitor. Instead, exercise the "warranty" on the monitor, to get it replaced, or "invest" the $25 "inspection-fee" as part-payment of a new monitor.

Free advise on lcd monitor not responding to cpu?

You need to isolate the problem first. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Connect the problem LCD monitor into different computer (to see if the problem is the monitor or it could be the video card in your computer).

2. Try connecting a known working monitor to the problem computer.

If the problem monitor worked with other computer, then you may need to contact the computer manufacturer for the second opinion.

If the monitor did not work with other computer, then you may need to refer to the manufacturer of the LCD for repair.

Have a great day!

Connecting Toshiba Lap Top to NEC LCD TV

From user manual (page 68):
Your computer comes with a built-in display panel, but you can also
connect an external display device to an available video port, as
❖ An external monitor or projector via the RGB (monitor) port
❖ A TV, VCR, or DVD recorder via the S-video (TV-out) port
Before connecting an external monitor or video projector, configure
your computer for the type of device you are connecting. To do this,
refer to the documentation for your operating system and devices

So you have to use an RGB cable or a S-video cable : your cable should be plugged into 15 pin VGA port in your PC and plug it into a correspondent port in your TV.
Try also S- video and select correponding input in your TV set (Both connection type DO NOT carry sound: use your audio connector from PC to TV audio input.)
Configure your extended screen using your manual instruction:
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously. The quickest way to change the display output
settings is to use the display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ Built-in display and TV
❖ TV only


MGA 1164SG R3 video card work

You can connect it to your old monitor. As a safe method before connecting the lcd monitor to the old system go to ---- control panel --- display. Double click on it and select settings ----- advanced

Here select - monitor---->monitor settings ---> screen refresh rate. Select a low refresh rate (60 or 70,72). Press apply then ok.

Switch off the pc and remove the old monitor and connect the lcd monitor. It will work.

I think that you have multiple displays enabled through your video card. Just disable multiple displays.

Horiz. sharp line from 2 inch bottom

If the screen is part of your laptop/notebook/netbook, try to connect an external monitor to the VGA port, to see if the video-card in your computer is generating the "weirdness".

If the screen is an external monitor, try connecting it to a different computer, to see if the "weirdness" follows to the new computer,
implying that the monitor is faulty. Also, connect a diffferent monitor to your computer, to see if the video-card is causing the problem.
