Does any one know if it is possible to have 2 22" monitors on the E-Port Plus and use the notebooks display as a 3rd monitor? or is it possible to have 3 monitors attached at all?
My CFO is looking for this setup and had it on his T61.
I have a latitude E6430s running windows 7. I have it docked using a dell docking station, and have 2 dell monitors connected using dvi. With this configuration if I have the 2 monitors running I can't get any picture on the laptop screen. I wanted to be able to use all 3 screens at the same time is this even possible, how to have all 3 screen working at the same time.
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 have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
I have one monitor connected through the HDMI interface and I would like to have another one attached as well. Can I use the VGA port (or the other flat one -- I do not know what it is called) and have the monitors work in concert?
I've had Windows 7x64 running on my E6400 (w 160m) for 4 months now and frequently use an external monitor (Dell E207FP widescreen 1680x1050).
Up until a few days ago, I could plug the monitor in and it would correctly and automatically scale my desktop to the native 1680x1050 resolution.
All of a sudden (with no driver updates on my part) I can no longer scale any output to this resolution via VGA cable.
I examined the device manager and found that the video driver date was not the Oct09 driver I had expected, but instead something from Jun09. Updated the driver to the most recent dated Dec-14-09 and I am still having the same scaling issue.
Just a few weeks ago, I received a new DELL E6400 with Intel Graphics Card.
Since day 1, I started to notice a strange behavior when I connect an external monitor to the VGA port of my laptop. No matter the resolution, the monitor shows horizontal and vertical blurry lines just like if it was a refresh rate issue.
I reported the issue to Dell, and they replaced my monitor, but the lines are still there...I checked the refresh rate and updated the video card drivers with no luck...
Have any of you experienced something like this?
I'm not using a docking station and I'm running windows XP with extended desktop...
Since I have a dell, I decided to ask here. My laptop is my primary unit that I use.
But there are a few things that I would like to use my desktop for, but I do not want to take up all the space that the entire desktop unit would use. Therefore, I was wondering if it is possible to run my desktop using my laptop as the display.
it was about gettin my laptop to use hdtv as monitor instead of laptop screen on my windows xp display part there is no option to change the output it just says notebook and theres no other option how can i get this?
Irecently bought a new AOC monitor 6 months ago and it worked flawlessly up to two weeks ago when it suddenly stopped working with this laptop. monitor still works great through HDMI with my brothers mac and with a seperate Blu ray player also via HDMI. so its not the monitor or cable that is causing the problem.
the driver for the monitor is installed correctly and all the extra graphics drivers such as nvidia have been uninstalled and still the screen shows 'no signal'
I suspect the issue is with the HDMI driver which i have not been able to find a driver for (i recently reformatted my laptop and had to re-install all drivers even for USB ports and mouse ) however reformatting the laptop was done in an attempt to solve this issue.
Tried (and sometimes successful) to connect HDTV to laptop, Inspiron 5720. Now laptop screen does not display (goes black) without an external monitor physically attached. Tried using Projects and clicking on single laptop display, but if I disconnect the external monitor, the laptop screen just goes black. Not very portable if I have to lug around a second display.
well I have a l702p 3d, I connect it to my samsung smarTV and it works wonderfuly (hdmi ofcourse), but I have a FLATRON W2243T LG monitor (it only has DVI and VGA ports) I try to connect it using hdmi-dvi adapters but the laptop does not recognize the monitor!
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.
When powering my lappie on, I can hear the fans and the hard drive start, the lights come on but there is no backlight on the monitor. I did a hard boot but nothing. I tried to get into bios pressing ESCAPE or F10 after restart but same nothingness. If I can't get my lappie working, I would at least like to get data off it.
Inspiron 1300, been plugging an external monitor in & using function F8 for years but it just failed. The monitor isn't recieving the signal anymore. Tried another monitor as well. My laptop screen is lit up as always, and I can see some movement when I cntrl alt delete, but I can't read anything to see what's wrong.Is it my video card? Is that the thing I plug my VGA cord for the monitor into?
My aspire v3 laptop doesn't recognize a 2560x1440 monitor I connect to it - it only gives me the best option as 1920x1080. I've down loaded the latest AMD Radeon hd 7660g drivers but it still won't work.
I have recently purchased Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N laptop with Windows 8 Pro. When I try to connect my laptop to an Acer monitor with an HDMI cable, it gives me a no signal error. But when the same laptop is connected to a Philips monitor using the same cable, it works perfectly. As usual I thought that the monitor was the culprit, but when I connected another laptop to the Acer monitor using the same cable it worked without any errors. So where does the problem lie. The HDMI cable is OK, the laptop is also OK as also the Acer monitor?
My Dell Latitude E6400 laptop reboots when inserted in the docking station. I can run all day and say I hot dock it out of the docking station and go away for half an hour. While away I use the laptop. When I return I snap the laptop back onto the station and.... it reboots! It started about a week ago. Always worked before. The peripherals are two displays, ext kybd, mouse. No USB stuff. Ethernet connected in the dock. This setup is unchanged for months now. Docking contacts clean. Under laptop too.
BIOS is most recent (did a few months ago). I reset defaults in the BIOS today after looking for any setting that may change this issue, but no improvement. Device Manager has nothing relevant either. What's wrong? The hard reboot is really bad as I lose all my in progress work and get all these Auto Recover files to manage... and logins... and restart apps... I'm not interested in putting the computer to sleep between transitions, as it has always been working flawless up to last week.
When I plug in an HDMI cable to my laptop the screen freezes and a black box forms around the screen. The only thing I can see is my desktop background image. Can't do anything, system is totally frozen. When I disconnect it everything works great again. What do I need to do? I'm using a HP ENVY DV7-7250us with WIN7 (64bit) installed ...
I don't wan turn on both laptop screen and my external monitor at the same time. So is there any way to make my laptop screen auto turn off as soon as I plug my external monitor vga cable to my laptop (without pressing Fn + F2 Keys) ??
I have an Aspire 2920 laptop with Windows Vista Home Edition O.S. It starts and works fine except that after I was using it with an external monitor (a flat screen tv) on the option to use external monitor, it only now starts thinking the monitor is the flat screen tv and does not recognizes the normal laptop screen. The laptop screen is now "pixeled" and only shows like 2/3 of its total width. I've checked in Control Panel and it has the flat screen registered as the "normal" monitor, but I can not way a find to tell the computer that the monitor is the same as usual and not the flat screen tv.
I own 15" Aspire 5738 laptop. I have hooked up 27" external monitor to it. I am facing a problem with 27" monitor. The display on the external monitor doesn't cover whole screen. The reason being that Aspire's screen is primary monitor as default. I want to make 27" monitor as primary. How can I do that?
