To use the external vga connector of a laptop, you have to activate it. In many notebooks it is Funtion and F7 (Fn-F7). In your notebook it may be F5 or F6, look for a monitor sigh in the F keys. The activation may sometimes rotate in sequence , ie, External + LCD, LCD, External... and so on.

Sounds like dodgy kit.

I don't think a monitor setting is causing Windows to not appear. Here's some tricks I would try... 1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor. 2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor. 3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on. 4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works). 5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord. 6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced. 7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers. Good luck.

You should first ensure that the"fly lead" is connected between the monitor and the computer otherwise you wont see anything at all.

Not all monitors have USB ports and the implementation is not always the best.

I would start by formatting a usb drive and ensure it is formatted to FAT or FAT 32 (most offer that in the drop down format menu) do the format on a known computer not monitor.

Once done plug that into the monitor to see if it shows.

If not come back and give any additional information to this post.

Again check you have the fly lead in first.

Sounds like the internal power supply is bad. The clicking as a relay in the power supply. Try the monitor on another computer first and see if it works. Ray Compuguy44

Sounds like a hardware issue. Make sure your settings on your computer are not causing it.
If its not your settings then it is a hardware issue with the monitor which sadly means you will have to send it to the manufacture or someone who does hardware repair.

No, that is the native resolution of your LCD Monitor, it can not display a higher resolution.

Check the power supply DC filter caps for leaking/bulging tops, that will be he first place to look.

Adjust your monitor Brightness and Contrast and make sure you set it high enough to be able to view text and images. Refer to the monitor manual.

The best way is to buy a special microfibre cleaning cloth for LCD monitors. Very often the same cloths are used to clean sunglasses so you may already have one of those. Do not use any cleaning liquid. Rub the screen very GENTLY with the cloth until the prints are gone. You can rub fast but remember not to press too hard or you can damage your monitor.

It was stupid, the volume on the monitor had been turned all the way down. I checked to make sure it wasn't muted but never checked the volume level. Thanks anyway.
