HP G60-44OUS Notebook PC The original monitor or screen went bad and I am using a external monitor which has been working fine. Today I can not get input to the external screen. I hooked it up to my TV. It has work there fine. Today it will not imput to that screen either. The start button light is white and the wi-fi button is orange, suppose to be blue. There are 3 activity lights.
The first (left) is on bright all time, which I think is normal. The middle light is dim. The right is off. As I can not see a display I am at a loss. Is there a key stroke for restart? It appears that the laptop is not starting. Repeated pushing the start button does not seem to work.
i came across the fact that you can only monitor audio if you install the sigmatel audio drivers with XP SP2 compatibility, but now that i wanted to plug my XPS via HDMI to my flatscreen, lo and behold... no HDMI audio as it used to be.
is it possible to have both scenarios or does one cancel the other?
I usually hook my M1530 up to an external LCD to play COD5, does using an external monitor introduce any input lag while the laptop pushes the video out to the monitor? I don't think so as it is like using a desktop and monitor but I wanted to check with you guys anyway.
I have a Pavilion dv7t laptop running Vista. One of the main reasons I bought this was to do audio work in Sony Acid Music and Sony Sound Forge. Well, lo and behold, I can't hear my mic input. I can record audio in using the mic input, but I can't monitor the input as I am using it to know whether it is too loud, too quiet, I am too close to the mic, too far away, etc.
I have done a lot of research on this via google searches and have found that most people solved this (on other laptops or other computers running Vista) by changing the input monitor setting (to enable it) within the windows registry. I dug all through various locations in my reg files and can't find anything on an HP Pavilion dv7t running Vista that corresponds with an input monitor setting.
This is a huge source of frustration. If anyone can let me know how to enable this, I would appreciate it. It's not a matter of right clicking on the speaker in the windows tray and changing anything on playback devices or recording devices. I have tried every possible combination of that and it doesn't work. This is something that needs to be fixed at a root level.
Why HP or Microsoft has this set as a default setting so you can't even monitor your input volume is beyond me.
Touchscreen for my laptop is no longer working, among other issues. When I look at pen and touch under pc info, I get "No pen or touch input is available for this display." Which is quite odd since it is a touch laptop. I cannot find any of the drivers for the touchscreen. The only thing I have under "mice and other pointing devices," is the dell touchpad. I tried reinstalling synaptics touchpad driver, no luck. I updated BIOS and chipset drivers, no luck. I also completed all windows updates, still no luck. So, I reset my computer to factory settings, and it still does not work
I recently sent in my laptop due to problems of it not being able to turn on, and my battery and a/c adapter were replaced. I was quite happy. However, I do not want to send it back in even though it is under warranty.
I have a HP TouchSmart Notebook Model 15-f010wm, Product number J8A22UA#ABA, Windows 8.1 with Bing 64-bit.
The first 3-4 day I used this computer it worked like a charm. I loved it. Now some times the touchscreen will work for about 5 min or so and then stop or not work at all. When it stops working I keep getting a pop up in the lower right corner that says: USB device not recognized.
The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and window does not recognize it. (I have not plugged anything into this computer yet except the power cord) When this happens and you go to the device manager sometimes there will be a yellow ! triangle under the Human Interface Devices drop down and some times the yellow ! triangle will be under the Universal Serial Bus controllers drop down. And if you go to they system screen the Pen and touch line changes to No Pen or Touch Input is available for this display.
I have tried to do a system restore. Also I've done a system quick test and a system extensive test. The results were battery check primary ok and all others said passed. And of course I can't do the screen test because the touch screen is not working.
I got a HP laptop, running windows 7 x64 bit Ultimate, and has 8 GB of ram. My tv is crappy now, and want to play my ps3, so, i was wondering if i can plug into my Laptop and get a certain driver that makes the HDMI port act as a input so i can play through my laptop screen, my resolution can go a little over 720p .....
After running my B570 (1068) with an extended display, the unit went into hibernation. On wake-up the laptop screen is indecipherable garbage. The second display will run to show BIOS startup but then reverts to the built-in screen - which is illegible. Toggling the F3 key does not get a good screen.
I read another post suggesting this is a hardware failure. What parts have failed?
The monitor on my HP Pavilion dv9830us laptop has not been working for some time and I have had to use an external CRT monitor for my display. A couple nights ago, my operating system (Ubuntu Linux 10.04) failed to load and because I can't get video feed to my external monitor until the video drivers on Ubuntu loads, I am unable to run Ubuntu's repair feature and the beginning of boot.
Is there a way I can get my laptop to use my external monitor at all times, even at the BIOS screen? Is there a setting in BIOS for this?
I was getting frustrated with my external monitor because the screen color was turning dark purplish at times, so I went into Device Manager and deleted both default monitor entries instead of just one under Monitors in hopes that it would've gotten rid of the purple haze so to speak.
I tried unhooking the monitor and unplugging everything before I deleted the default monitor entries in Device Manager, but it didn't get rid of the purple screen.
I have a fairly old notebook Dell Inspiron 4000 with WinMe installed and the display is no longer working assumed due to a bad or broken LCD, which is why I'm using the external monitor.
The external monitor has been working fine for months until it started turning purple on me when it was being used with the notebook. When the monitor is hooked up with my desktop, the screen color is just fine.
The notebook has got a lot of storage on it. During the boot process on the notebook, the external monitor lights up at one point (no longer purplish), but goes blank/dark after a few seconds and says it no longer is getting a signal from the notebook
Hp Envy 6t-1000 has a green tint to the monitor. There seems to be no black color. I ran the system diagnostics and everything passes. If I tyr the color palette check it fails. I have updated the video drivers, updated the BIOS, replaced the monitor cable and run a system recovery using the disks provided by HP. All to no avail. I can attach an extrenal monitor, either HDMI or USB, and it works. Only the built in display has the green tint and lack of black palette.
I just got an HP Envy, 17 inch, and I have an HP 25 inch monitor I would like to connect to it. It has the "old style" connector which was supported on my old HP Entertainment Notebook. Not on the new one! What kind of adaptor do I need to get? I do have an HDMI port on the left side of my laptop. Do I need just a regular HDMI cable?
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
About a month ago my screen cracked and the warranty is up. I had a spare CRT laying around so I just plugged it into that and it worked just fine as a substitute. However, today I had to reformat for various reasons and I did so using a friend's similar model laptop by putting my hard drive in it. After I got windows up and running I put the hard drive back in my machine and took it home.
After trying it out with the external monitor I've come to the conclusion that the standard vga driver does not support multiple monitors and therefore not my external (since the laptop still believes that the LCD is plugged in and functional even without any of the LCD wires plugged into the motherboard).
As it is the external blinks on during POST like should when the VGA port is tested. I'm sure I could solve this problem by disabling the LCD monitor in BIOS but since I can't see anything that is not possible.
It seems the only solutions left to me are:
1. Buying a new LCD 2. Buying/finding a new laptop 3. Some crazy hardware magic to disable the default LCD and let the external display during POST so I can get to BIOS and/or Windows Safe Mode
I cannot connect my Probook 4430s to external monitor. I also have problems on the following device drivers. Are theDo I y related? need to download a new driver? What to download?All I want is to be able to use a larger monitor.
I have a brand new HP Envy X2 (15-C001dx) with Windows 8.1. So far it works fine by itself. I tried connecting an external monitor to the laptop using an HDMI cable from the laptop to an LG L246WPQ display. The problem is that 10-15% of the left side of the laptop screen content does not appear on the external monitor. Missing from the external monitor is the word "Start" in the upper left corner along with roughly the 2 leftmost columns of tiles. This occurs in both "Duplicate display" or "Only display on screen 2" modes. This is using a resolution of 1680x1050 which both the laptop and the LG appear to support. Using the touch screen on the laptop I can scroll the tiles to the right and see the missing leftmost columns. The information that is displayed on the external monitor begins as far left as that monitor will display. In other words, there is no black/blank area on the left. Except for the missing information on the left side, the content of the rest of the external monitor looks fine. I updated the laptop's video driver to the latest on HP.COM. No change in behavior. I tried every option I could find on the LG OnScreenDisplay, but nothing made the display any better.
I have connected my monitor to an external monitor. It works fine. Only problem I have ( and a little irritating one) is that the external monitor picks up display only after Windows is loaded. Pre-OS screens like BIOS settings, GRUB loader (I have Installed Linux ) doesn't show up)
Is this an issue with BIOS? Because, when I connect HP dv6000 to my monitor, I can see the BIOS screen as well. I am sure the problem is not with the monitor.
The BIOS is responsible for detecting displays before the OS is loaded right? I checked BIOS settings and there is nothing to indicate the display ports/devices (however, this page on HP website shows a BIOS screen "Advanced" which apparently has those settings)
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.
(HP 2000 Notebook PC / Windows 8.1, 64 Bit) Blank screen always, external monitor works fine. What components could be malfunctioning? This occured about six months ago, approximately one week after the one year warranty expired.
