HP Pavilion TS 15 SleekBook Display :: Connecting Extra Monitor - No Standard VGA Port
May 30, 2014
I just opened up my HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15 Sleekbook and I want to connect a 2nd monitor to stretch my desktop. I have a Dell monitor that I've been using for a year or so with a VGA connection. On my new Touchsmart there is no standard vga port.
In what ways can I connect it?
Possibly off topic, but it is related to a Dell Precision (workstation..)
A message that you don't want to see on your main file server..."TERMINAL DISK FAILURE"... Happily, I just pull the borked disk out and stick in a spare (of the wrong capacity, but hey...) whilst awaiting the arrival of a replacement...and all is well
I am having problems connecting an external monitor, Dell 2709W, to my Elitebook 820 G1. ¬† I have an Intel HD 4400 graphics solution. The monitor says: ¬† Out of range signal Cannot display this video mode change computer display input to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz. ¬† I use a Display Port cable for the connection. ¬† My OS is Win 8.1 64bit ¬† I have used the HP support assistant to update all hardware drivers...
I have a brand new¬† TV with USB, RS232, HDMI connections and of course with a screen in16:9 aspect ratio.¬† I want to use my existing RS232 cable to connect my T430 to the TV and display videos/movies that I want to view with others.¬† HOWEVER, the video output always gets a black bar top and bottom from the T430 when the TV is connected.¬† As a result, the image is stretched side-to-side both on the TV and on the T430 simultaneously showing the video.¬† It is ugly.¬† If I watch a movie in the very wide movie format 2.35:1, the bars are of course even larger and the movie is simply unwatchable it's so thin, top-to-bottom.
This is true regardless of the video source on the T430, either a movie via VLC or MediaPlayer off the hard drive, or streaming.
Two odd things:¬† it does not happen if I play a movie on the TV directly from a USB key - it has a USB port and that works just fine.¬† Also, if I simply unplug the RS232 from the TV then everything gets restored and the image on the T430 is perfect without any bars top and bottom.¬†
In summary, a 16:9 video source connected to a 16:9 TV via RS232 is given black bars top and bottom, and there is no control on the TV that can correct this (TV has two settings for RS232 display, 4:3 and 16:9.¬† 4:3 actually displays the 16:9 ratio correctly, but with a large black frame around it.¬† And 16:9, the "auto" setting, gives the problem above).
So I have two questions:
1.¬† Is there a setting on the T430 that I can adjust to resolve this issue so that the black bars are suppressed for 16:9 video replay?
2.¬† If I switch to using the more expensive T430 minidisplay output (via an HDMI adapter) and connect that way, is it likely to fix this issue?¬† I don't want to go to the expense of the adapter and HDMI cable if it will give essentially the same result.
This only applies to videos.¬† That is, when I close down the video, the 16:9 desktop that shows on the TV is identical to that on the T430 and aspect ratio is not squished on either display.
So it's something to do with how the machine sends out the video streams via RS232 that's screwed up somehow.
My HP Pavillion 15 sleekbook has a digital media port on the side that does not read my Sony 64mb memory stick, although it fits fine. After being put on hold for an inexcusible amount of time the tech, that I could hardly understand said it wouldn't work. Why not, and if not what will?
OS: Win7 64Bit Product : b0p18pa#ab4 Model: dv6-7007tx GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT 630m ¬† On fresh install of W7 I have 2 instances of "standard VGA graphics adapter" one that is "installed correctly" (IDs below): ¬† PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103C&REV_09PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103CPCIVEN_8086 &DEV_0166&CC_030000PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&CC_0300
After trying multiple times (both automatically and manually) to install the Nvidia drivers it shows an error saying "you must install¬† an Intel driver first".¬† I realize this is the HP forum, but i've tried contacting Intel with no luck on top of trying every Intel driver that looks even remotely relevant. (most of which error while installing mentioning my computer lacks the requirements for the install). ¬† I've tried updating the drivers automatically through windows on top of disable/uninstall and restart, but the same problem keeps arising.
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-6c73ca Entertainment Notebook PC¬†2.2 GHz 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2670QM Processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz.. Running Microsoft Windows 7 home edition 64 bit. ¬† The Standard VGA Graphics Adapter gives me this error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10) ¬† Where can I find the driver for it?
I can't change my laptop brightness neither with F2 and F3 keys nor in the settings. I have already updated all my drivers but still have no response when adjusting brightness. I have an hp pavilion sleekbook 15-b102sp
I have an HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 (Model: 15-b022es) in which i'm tryig to install Linux. Since the day I bought it, I've been unable to boot anything directly through USB. I've searched a lot on this topic, and the usual causes are Boot devices order, Secure boot or Legacy Support options. That is certainly not the case, since I have tried all possible combinations. In fact, the exact symptoms that my laptop exhibits aren't described anywhere I've found. This being: ¬† If I insert an USB drive in any port of the laptop, it renders the computer completely unable to boot. It's not that it freezes, it restarts again and again, but never goes beyound a black screen and making some HDD sounds (usual boot up sounds, nothing weird). Within this state, with the USB still inserted, I can access the BIOS configuration by pressing F10, but can not access boot devices menu (usually available at F9), because pressing F9 will just cause a new reboot. ¬† In the past I accessed the boot menu by not inserting any USB and then pressing F9, then I entered the USB, entered and left some random folder to force refresh the display (and so show the USB), and finally selected my USB. This is a bit hacky, and I can no longer apply this solution, since my HDD is completely erased now and there is no folder I can enter to refresh the screen and display the usb drive. ¬† Now the thing is: I can't manage to install any operating system back into my laptop if I can't boot from USB, so how can I do that? Right now all I get are continuous resets of the machine before even getting to the boot menu. And what is the cause for all those reset?
When I connect my external monitor (ASUS PA248) to my W520, the audio disappears.¬† When I disconnect it, the audio returns.¬† This seems a bizarre link between audio and video, but there it is.¬† Note that the PA248 does NOT have built-in speakers.
I have¬†HP Pavilion 15 p000su with HDMI port and tried to connect it via HDMI-VGA cable i bought and it didnt connect.Can't Indentify it(find it in the screen options).I need it for work also tried it at home to connect it with my TV with the same cable and still not finding it... I'm really not much in this cable things and asked a guy who told me about this HDMI-VGA cable.He also tried to connect it with 2 cables one vga and one hdmi with some adapters, but the projector wasnt connecting.The drivers are correct and everything else is fine.

I have a HP pavillion A10-5750M Model- 15-e084ca(windows 7 ultimate) ¬† I recently changed my window from 8 to 7 ultimate and i noticed my grahics adapter has changed from AMD radeon 8650G to standard VGA graphics adapter. Why is that and how do i change it?
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?
My note book brightness controls are not working ever since I've upgraded my machine to windows 8.1

I have a¬†HP Pavilion dv4t-4200 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC¬†model #¬†A1M02AV and it has a VGA port, one that looks like a phone/broadband cable port, and one that looks like a USB port but indented on either side at the bottom. Can I even connect an external monitor? How do I find out if I have more than 1 video card? Besides the usual USB/headphone ports, I don't have any other ports. It says my drivers are up to date...but I don't even know what I should be looking for. Do I need to install something or buy some sort of adapter?¬† ¬† I am trying to connect a Dell external montitor via the VGA port with a VGA cable. The monitor has power but my notebook does not recognize/detect it. However, when I first plugged it in, my notebook display shrank into a square (vs the whole screen) so it recognized something...but nothing happened on the external monitor.¬† ¬† I tried detecting it via my display settings, but¬†¬†I accidentally changed some dispaly setting so that the home desktop only shows on monitor 1, but unselected my actual notebook display or something or changed it to be monitor 2 (even though monitor 1 does not exist), so when I plug the cable in to my notebook, all of a sudden my desktop goes away and it's a just a blank background screen - and I cannot access the computer display settings or anything.... when the cable is unplugged this setting looks normal, so I can't figure out how to fix it.¬†
I discovered that my display wasn't turning on yesterday when I tried turning on my notebook. Luckily I was able to plug it into an external monitor with a VGA cable and I have a monitor in my office, but I really cannot be restricted to my living room or office to use my laptop. ¬†

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.¬†
Recently my laptop suddenly shrunk the display down to 1024x768, even in BIOS and when starting up. In Windows, the monitor is recognized as "Digital Flat Panel, 1024x768, 60Hz". Here is a photo I took with my mobile phone: ¬† HP Pavilion DV4T-1400, with Intel GM450 graphic card.

Whats the major difference between 16.4" VAIO Display (1600x900) and 16.4" VAIO extra-wide HD display (1920x1080). Upto what angle I could see my display in VAIO Display (1600x900)? Can I watch HD movies perfectly in VAIO Display (1600x900) ?
