I'm looking for a 24'' external monitor and was interested in one by Asus:
Well, technically it's 23.6''...But I noticed the resolution is 1920 x 1080, meaning it is 16:9. I know my MBP has a resolution of 1440x900 making it 16:10. I understand that most widescreen TV's use 16:9, however widescreen laptops use 16:10. Will connecting a 16:9 external monitor to my Macbook Pro have any problems?
I did a search for my problem but I couldn't find anything useful. So here's my problem...
I have an XPS M1210 laptop and I have a Sharp 32" 1920x1080 display. When I connect the laptop to the Sharp the resolution max's out at 1600x1200, regardless if i'm in Single, Clone, or Dual Screen mode .....
my resolution on my external monitor wont display correction when hook up with the XPS 1647.
The connection is HDMI. Resolution has been set to the highest recommend 1920x1080.
If you look at the picture below, the edges of the screen won't fill up the whole screen, making everything so small and hard to read. I already turn off the display on the laptop, making the monitor as my default screen.
On my previous XPS M1530, the Nvidia 8600GT can display the resolution correction.. I find it hard to believe that ATI card are not capable of doing that or there might be something wrong with my setting
I have bought a Philips Brilliance 272P4 external monitor. Connected the monitor with DVI through docking. I get 1920 x 1080 as max resolution. The monitor displays a note, that I should use 2560 x 1440. I have installed the newest driver to the monitor.
The display card (Nvidia NVS 5400M) is using 333.02 driver, that is the latest recommended. How to enable higher resolution?
Do I get higher resolution with using the displayport insted of DVI port?
I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 and ti works great however when I plug it into an external monitor LG W300H the resolution displayed is quite low. I try to choose a higher one but there are no options for higher resolutions. It's actually quite a bit lower than the resolution displayed on the laptops own screen.
I have T410 with Nvidia NVS 3100M with driver version 189.55 connected to external Acer monitor capable of 2560x1440 linked with DisplayPort cable. But, I can't get resolution higher than 1920x1080. What do I need to do?
I have just taken delivery of my Yoga 2 pro but I am struggling with the setup and cannot get a proper duplicated screen using a Kensington 3.0 Superspeed dock. The Yoga has a resolution of 3200x1800 and my spare screen is a BENQ G2420HD at 1980x1080.
I have already ordered a screen and a dock to replicate this setup in a foreign country and the kit is on its way including a second Yoga 2 pro!
I know the resolution on the new 13" pros is 1280x800, so if I plugged it into an external monitor of a higher resolution, 1920x1080 for example, would the image on the monitor be shown at that resolution, or would it still be the same res as the macbook pro, meaning it would be really pixelated on the monitor?
I'm on the lookout for external monitors (20-24" WS) that work well with MBPs (13" 2.53 model in particular). I'm leaning away from Apple Cinema Displays (due to their lack of support for non-Apple computers which I own. Pl. correct me if I'm wrong in doing so).
I've hooked my Macbook Pro 15" to an external Dell monitor, keyboard and mouse and everything seems to be working fine - I can put the laptop to 'sleep', then wake it up via the external keyboard and then use the external monitor as the main monitor with the laptop screen 'asleep'.
All working fine, but only when I'm using the power adapter. If I try and run from just the battery the laptop keeps going back to sleep. It 'wakes', but after a couple of seconds goes back to sleep.
I've got a Macbook core 2 duo, 2.2GHz (late 2007). I'm looking at some 19" Dell monitors under $200 (S1909WXF and E2009W). I notice that they have 24 pin DVI, but the Macbook has 16 pin mini DVI out. Is this a problem? Are there 24 pin to 16 pin cables?
in the last week or so I have been getting Spinning beach ball of death just doing stuff like web browsing, word processing, etc. They will last aboot 10 seconds or so. And now today My external monitor will dim and come back consistently on certain web pages. It seems to change depending on where my mouse is on the page.
I have lots of hard drive space left and Plenty of RAM.
It would be easiest if I just had a camera to take a picture of it, but, alas, I do not.
I have an Acer 22" monitor that I attach via mini display --> VGA to my 13" MBP, but for some reason it isn't aligning correctly. The external monitor is set up to the right of the laptop. The native resolution of the monitor is 1680x1050, which is displaying correctly, but the entire image isn't showing up on the screen. I moved the horizontal position all the way to the 100 mark, but there is just a 1.5-2" black line going down the right side of the monitor. Also, normally if you drag an app between the laptop monitor and the external monitor it is "seamless," but right now you have to drag a little further until it shifts onto the next monitor... if that makes sense. Essentially, the whole image on the external monitor is shifted to the left about 1.5-2". The monitor seems to be fine... when I make the resolution lower, the image fills the entire screen (it's just all out of proportion and hurts my eyes).
I have tried reconnecting all the connections and resetting all the settings, but nothing is working. It's still workable right now, but it's annoying as heck.
I have MacBook Pro (late 2008) and I have WinXP installed in Bootcamp.
Recently I acquired a Dell SP2309W monitor that is capable of 2048 x 1152 resolution. When hooked to my MBP and start in WinXP, the external monitor works fine in EXTENDED mode. That is, I can move Windows to the external monitor. The MBP display is the primary display, where the Taskbar is displayed.
What I want to do is make the external monitor my PRIMARY display, with the taskbar shown there. However, the "Use this device as the primary monitor" is greyed out.
if I want to connect the macbook to an external LCD monitor, I will need a mini-DVi to DVI adapter, but the adapter is so short. So should I connect the adapter to the DVi cable that is connect to the monitor? The adapter is so short that there is no way it can be directly connected to the monitor......
I'm thinking on using my MBA as my main computer, therefore I'm considering buying the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and the Mighty Mouse and hooking up to my HP Monitor for when I'm at my desk for long periods.
It's very easy to hook up ... this MBA seems quick enough and a usb hub can be added if need be ... why not use it as a main pc?
Further, the only windows app I'm really going to miss is Publisher, I'm thinking on being daring and installing Vista on the Mac with Bootcamp and then run Publisher in Windows. If that worked well I could get rid of the T500... (I have a desktop I could use for heavier app's, movie/music downloading) ...
Seems like a lot of work for such a small little machine, lol, can it handle it? Has anyone there done this before with success?
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
i dissasembled my presario cq60 and when i put it together the monitor won't activate.
i tried using an external monitor and the monitor refused to turn on from standby, a safety feature of the monitor. the small card in the underneath with 2 wires leading 2 the monitor, (i assume that is the laptop version of a graphics card) is fine, inserted properly, and i had a slight issue with the plugs fitting, but that was soon resolved.
having trouble with my second monitor that I am trying to connect.
I am using a DVI to HDMI cable and inputting it into the second screen (It is an lcd tv).
Windows 7 allows me to change the resolution of both monitors seperately. i made my regular monitor the same 1920 x 1200, but no matter what resolution i make the second screen, the edges, top bottom left and right are all cut off, sort of like a cropped version of what i should be seeing .....
I have a HP HDX18t w/ Windows 7 Home Premium and the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M video card. I'm trying to hook up a Dell 30" LCD monitor with a native resolution of 2560x1600 via the HDMI output using a HDMI to DVI cable. Doing so, the system will only allow the external Dell a max resolution of 1280x800 while the HDX screen stays at 1920x1080. The 1280x800 look really bad. I want to use its native resolution of 2560x1600 or atleast the 1920x1080. When I use VGA output, nothing shows up on 30" (blank black screen).
Using my 24" Dell, I can get 1920x1080 either via the VGA or HDMI (to DVI) fine. Based on my research it seems to be a limitation of the Nvidia GeForce GT 130M because it just doesn't allow that high a resolution (i.e. no dual-link DVI capabilitiy). Is this true? Or am doing something wrong?
Is there any solution in using a 30" monitor with the HP HDX18t? Will one of those Matrox DualHead2Go devices work to run the 30" and 24 inch monitor simultaneous at 1920x1200. I'll be fine with that. My wife is firm in using the 30" monitor we have. Is this a loss cause and I have to get another laptop that will support a 30" external monitor? If so, any advice on which one.
I've recently bought a Asus 27" monitor capable of 2560x1440 resolution. My laptop couldn't go higher than 1920x1200 so i'm now looking for a laptop replacement. Will 8560w or other elitebooks with display port connectors do the job?
I just got my new Acer Aspire V14 touch (Windows 8.1) and want to connect it to my Sharp Aquos LC-32DA5U TV via HDMI. I can see the picture but cannot adjust the screen resolution to the native resolution recommended for this TV (1366x768). Funny enough this is exactly the resolution my laptop is using.
When I force use of this resolution via show all in the display properties, then I don't get a picture but just a black screen on my TV.
Is there any other driver etc that I need to install to make this work? It worked perfectly fine as PnP with my old Lenovo computer under Windows 7.
I can't change my monitor's resolution and the screen brightness after I upgrade the windows from windows 7 ultimate to windows 8.1 pro build 9600I've already installed graphic card , but i can't change my resolution more than 1024x768 My laptop is HP 431 with intel core i3-2310m CPU @ 2.10 GHz , AMD Graphics HD 7450M , DDR3 1 GB (i don't know why , but i've already installed AMD Graphics HD 7400M Series because my notebook isn't compatible with other AMD Graphics) , OS 64-bit
I recently purchased a Yoga 2 pro and a Dell U2713HM montior. The monitor will suport 2560x1440. I am using a Toshiba Dynadock usb 3.0 docking station. I can't get the screen display to be above 2048x1152. I've tried the dvi, vga and hmdi on the docking station. What is the maximum resolution for a second montior for the Yoga Pro 2? How to get the yoga pro 2 to output a higher resolution? It would be disappointing if the max is 2048x1152 on a 27" monitor.
I am thinking of getting the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM external monitor and use it with my y510p Lenovo laptop. My question is: Is there any way to get the 2560x1440 resolution out of the monitor using only VGA or HDMI port of this laptop?
