Laptop Monitor Won't Work - Go To Graphic Setting But It Only See External Monitor
Aug 14, 2015
I just installed Windows 10. Now my laptop monitor won't work - only the external monitor. I go to Graphic setting and click on multiple displays, but it states it doesn't see another device only the external monitor. Tried disconnecting the external monitor and rebooting, but the laptop display still doesn't turn on.
I have a MSI GS60 ghost pro gaming laptop which has Intel HD graphics 4600 and Nvidia GTX970M GPU, CPU i7 4720HQ, running Windows 10. I study abroad, several months ago i went back home and plugged-in my laptop to the TV via HDMI for gaming like normal. Yesterday i bought an ASUS VC239H external monitor and tried to do the same thing, but there is no HDMI input signal, the Laptop cannot detect the monitor (include display settings, intel HD graphics settings, nvidia settings). This is what i tried:
- Fn+f2, Fn+f8 keys, windows P switching to duplicate or extend or anykind of options - plug the monitor into my friend's laptop with windows 8 through that HDMI cable and it works fine, the same with other laptop running windows 7==> cable and monitor are normal - plug my laptop to my neighbor's smart TV. There was ''connected' symbol which appears on the TV but black screen instead of image, Laptop couldn't detect the TV - reinstalling nvidia and onboard-graphics drivers and update to the latest - Made a clean install of windows, tried windows 8 also but the same result - Updated my BIOS and EC - Bought an adapter HDMI-Mini Displayport to use the mini displayport with HDMI cable
Ok so I recently updated to Windows 10 but now when I connect my laptop to my external monitor the laptop screen doesn't show up on the external monitor.
My laptop's screen is broken so I can't see anything. The laptop is still on the screen immediately after updating so I could blindly work my way through the update screens, but someone would have to upload pictures of the screens immediately after updating to Windows 10.
I have a Dell XPS 13 (2016) with a Dell USB-C adapter. It will not detect my NEC LCD external monitor. I have tried a Dell USB-C adapter and a D-SUB cable to the monitor. I have also tried a Monoprice USB-C adapter with a Monoprice HDMI cable. Neither work. The monitor works fine with my Mac. I have told the computer to extend and duplicate the display using the Windows-P command. I have tried to update the driver for the monitor (I have NEC's driver), but it will not install because the monitor is not detected.
I've been running a multi-monitor setup for a while now, with an ASUS VG248QE 144Hz monitor as my main, and one or more spare monitors as secondary displays. I've set the ASUS monitor to 144Hz without issue in the past, while the other monitors stay at 60Hz.
The other night, Windows wanted to update. I figured it was the usual patch session, so I let it do its thing. However, after restarting my computer, I noticed that my ASUS monitor would only operate at 144Hz if it was the only monitor plugged into the system. When I try to set it higher in the Nvidia control panel, it just reverts back to 60Hz after applying changes. I updated my graphics drivers (though I was only one version behind) and even sought a special ASUS driver for the monitor to resolve the issue, but nothing has worked.
Did Windows recently add a forced refresh rate sync between all monitors recently? If so, that really sucks because I only own one 144Hz monitor.
I installed Windows 10 and found some apps did not fit the monitor screen (too big). I went in and changed the monitor resolution to a larger size (windows recommended 1920 x 1080) but I tried something larger, and now the monitor has a black screen with a little box moving around which says "input not supported". Not being able to use that monitor to go in and change it back, I hooked up a flat screen t.v. which worked but Windows only showed the current monitor size (which was smaller than the original monitor.
I tried the monitor on another computer I have also running Windows 10 and it worked fine. It shows the resolution as 1920 x 1080. When I plugged it back into the original computer I get the same plack screen with "input not supported" so I can't change it there. I suspect the issue is with the registry somewhere in Windows 10 on the first computer, but what the problem is. I've been working on this for a whole day now. You can probably tell I'm not well versed in computer technology. I just want my old monitor back (Acer K272HL) and I promise I won't mess around with it again.
I have a 2013 Lenovo Helix running Windows 10 that I'm using for college. I'm trying to connect it via mini-displayport adapter to hdmi to dvi to my Acer G276HL monitor. I've tried updating the drivers for my Helix, which didn't work. Next I tried installing the driver from Acer's website using the manual method in device manager.When I installed Acer's drivers, I was able to see that the computer recognized the monitor as a G276HL, but it was still just a blank black screen on the monitor.
I then found this article that seems to be what I need, but I can't figure out how to install a .inf file in compatibility mode. When I download and unzip the driver for the monitor from Acer, there are just 2 files, one is a .icm file and the other is a .inf file. Neither of these seem to be able to install in compatibility mode, as least as far as I can tell.
I'm trying to just run my laptop as a desktop, as the screen hinges are faulty. Its a Lenovo Y410P. I know how to switch the display to the external monitor in the control panel settings. But I want to make it so that I can put the laptop to sleep or restart the laptop, and upon boot up have the login be displayed on the second monitor exclusively.
Currently, when the laptop is started from sleep or restarts, it will display everything only on the laptop screen. Then I have to open up the laptop, switch settings and send it to the external monitor.
Monitor is a ViewSonic VA2265smh. I'm running this via HDMI cable.
I have the new Acer Aspire laptop and a TV which I use as a monitor. They have worked together very happily some time now. But yesterday I had to do a forced shutdown when the start button would not work and the TV screen shrank in size and there were error messages. When I rebooted, the TV monitor stayed black and a computer screen came alive for about 10 seconds as it was rebooting, then went black. I disconnected the TV from the computer and started her up and the computer screen behaved itself.
Even if I set all of the display parameters to indicate only one screen (the computer screen), if the TV monitor is connected to the computer, I end up with two black screens.I have tried many display duplicate and extension.No new software installed.There is one clue. I disconnect the TV monitor from the computer, boot up, choose duplicates to display. Then I connect the TV monitor to the computer. What happens, for about one second, is that both screens light up.
I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 10. My main display monitor is a LG 24 widescreen plugged into the laptop.
With Windows 7, I had no problems in using Fn key f5 to set the display to only the LG (showing as "CRT" on the screen). This did not change when I re-booted the laptop.
With windows 10, it reverts back to to the default setting and I get the laptop screen and the monitor lit up.. I frequently get a different resolution on the display too, until I open the laptop and re-set the display with the Fn key. This is annoying, as I use an external keyboard (which doesn't flip the Fn key) with the laptop lip down.
I've also tried via Control Panel (Display) but that doesn't hold the setting either.
I am cleaning out and setting up an old-ish PC and whenever I connect it to my TV or Monitor it says either "No Input to TV" or it is just black when I turn it on, I am using VGA to connect it, I tried with a GTX 650 and with just the built in graphics, and still no luck, any reason why?
I have temporarily connected a 22 inch LCD tv monitor( until i get a new one) to pc via HDMI lead but i cannot get resolution set right.The recommended native makes the taskbar disappear of screen and the desktop icons are barely visible on left side of screen.
I have tried various resolution settings but all are no good apart from one which makes the desktop look like like a laptop screen.
I have reset Windows 10 and updated Intel Graphic Card drivers to the latest but still resolution cannot be set correctly for monitor and used a VGA lead aswell.
Is it because you need a proper pc monitor to have correct resolution ?
Have a user with a Sony vaio laptop, 15" screen, 1920x1080. They also plug an HDMI cable into a 23" dell widescreen monitor for a second display. This 23" monitor is also 1920x1080. They are complaining that fonts on this second monitor are blurry. They tried to live with it a week but they said can it be made clear again like it was when they had Windows 7?
Are you familiar with the possibility of fonts being blurry only on one monitor if they are both set to the native?
I'm asking them to see if they change the font dpi to 100%, logoff and on if its any better. For whatever reason that seemed to work for my laptop (another Sony Vaio), but my concern is they will be disappointed at legibility on the laptop screen (it makes everything tiny).
I have been considering getting the Surface 3 to use in class as an electronic notepad of sorts, as well as for general consumption use. I also have an ultrabook running W10, and when I'm at home I like to work using an external monitor. Obviously I can't lug a monitor to the library, but I was hoping maybe the Surface 3 would be able to serve that purpose when I work there. I know that there are Android and iOS apps that turn a tablet into a monitor, but are there any that do the same for Windows? The app can be a Store app or for the desktop, no matter.
I got an external monitor today that does not have speakers included. I was surprised to find that when the monitor is connected (over DisplayPort) sound will not come out of my bluetooth speaker or my Windows 10 powered laptop's main speakers. How can I get around this huge issue??
I know our Surface Pro 3 has a lower volume threshold when you listen via headphones or speakers. Put the volume at 100% and for some of us, the volume is not loud enough.
I plugged my Surface Pro 3 into my docking station which is then connected to my ASUS VG248QE (external monitor). The volume, in my opinion is not loud enough at 100%. I am not looking to wake up my neighbors but I am looking to listen to a movie/TV show loud enough where the AC noise does not get in the way or any external outside noise.
Today I took the plunged into the windows 10 experience. Everything is great and all but my speakers that are plugged into my external monitor, via hdmi, aren't being recognized. I have confirmed that the speakers do still work, by testing them with my phone. My computer does sport an Realtek HD audio device. Windows says the drivers are up to date when checked with device manager for both.
I do know i can plug the speakers straight into my laptop, but the speaker wires aren't long enough to reach to that side of my laptop on my current set up. My external monitor is a g247hl, not that it should matter. plugged into that is a Logitech speaker system and a lenovo speaker system (through a slitter).
It worked fine in windows 7 but now when I choose "duplicate display" from the side menu popup the tv goes blank as if Ive unplugged the hdmi. All 3 of the remaining display options work including the extend display and tv only setting so its not a cable issue. Laptop model is XPS 17 L702X. Now when I used to do it in win 7 sometimes it wouldnt autodetect it so I would have to right click desktop, open invidia up and click rigorous display detect or something like that and then laptop screen would blink and make the beep noise like when hdmi cable got connected. Now in the invida panel it just simply wont allow mirroring, nothing happens when I right click on the display box that would normally show 1 and a smaller box would say 2. I dont get it but Id really like that feature back If its something simple I could do.
My computer currently has 3 monitors connected to it. 2 through the graphics card (R9 280), 1 through the integrated graphics (AMD HD 3000). Not sure when why or how, but the integrated graphics card can never pick up what type of monitor is connected to it... so it always gives me a bunch of generic 4:3 resolutions...
I've tried uninstalling the drivers and letting them reinstall. I've tried swapping around the cables to see if i could get lucky with one of the other screens, but they all face the same issues. I've tried buying brand new cables across the board because sometimes people say that's the issue. But not success.
The cloest thing i have is apparently a custom resolution setter, but it was created for windows 7 in mind and doesn't seem to work on windows 10 (PowerStrip).
My question is, is there anyway to format the list so i can select the correct resolution? It's a Toshiba TV/Monitor and it seems like every thing else attached to my pc (even 3rd party programs i tried to use to forcably change the resolution) can spot it and hand me back the correct resolution but i can't seem to change it. I get Genertic pnp through the control panel (the only place the monitor shows up in) and even then the correct driver doesn't show, it's the Microsoft Generic driver.
Mobo: MSI AMD 3000 series, cant find exact model.
I've updated my AMD drivers to the latest and so far can only modify the resolution to stock ones that look horrid on the screen. Any program in windows 10 to change the resolution of a screen.
Every time I restart or boot up my PC with my monitors turned on first I always get a issue with the monitor connected to the HDMI port, it always says "Input not supported" and all I do is turn my monitor off then back on and the issue has been resolved...
After win10's installation my external monitor has black borders.
This was happening also with win7 after installation. with catalyst control center [which I cannot open anymore in win 10... as I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4670 which is not supported] I could easily fix the issue:
- open Catalyst Control Center - go to My Digital Flat-Panels - choose Scaling Options - slide the slider all the way to the right (so that it is a 0%)
So, this is a monitor scaling options (or border padding I think in windows) issue that I need to fix. I search everywhere but I cannot find any fix in win10.
I'm running my audio via HDMI from my graphics card and it plays through the speakers built into my monitor.
When I first did the Win 10 update I had no audio whatsoever, and followed some suggestions on online forums that lead me to disable the Realtek High Definition Audio which I did and upon a reboot- my HDMI audio was working.
But then I had another weird issue. My PC is set to never sleep as I use it as a media server, but my screens turn off automatically after 10 minutes. What im finding is that when I wake up my monitors the audio stops. When I view playback devices I can't do any tests because "the device is already in use by another application"
(note: I have the checkbox for allowing an application to take exclusive control of a device un-checked).
So far there are only 2 ways to restore audio. 1) restart the PC. 2) go into device manager > Sound, video and game controllers > AMD High Definition Audio Device > Disable... wait a few moments > Enable.
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now my computer only detects one display rather than two. I have a Dell desktop computer and two Dell monitors. Using Windows 7 both monitors were being detected/used. How to correct. The second display shows a black screen with the message "Cannot Display This Video Mode".
I recently got a new monitor, an Eizo EV2750, which Windows only recognizes as a generic PnP monitor.
I've tried connecting it thorugh DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI without any luck. The often mentioned sollution, to unlplug everything and wait 10 minutes, does not work either.
The graphics card seems to read the EDID however, as in nVidia control panel it displays correctly as EV2750. Same thing with other applications, like DisplayCAL which I use as my color management system.
Seems like it's only an issue with Windows. This issue, however, also means that I can't get full functionality from the monitor. For instance, the ambient light sensor does not work (which is typical when Windows doesn't recognize the display properly).
So recently I upgraded to windows 10 at the same time I got a 4k display.When I set the display scaling to 150% on my main 4k monitor and ensuring that the scaling stays at 100% on my other two 1080p monitors, the entire chrome application is blurry when viewing on the 1080 monitors, and I cannot seem to fix this. Other applications seem to be okay.
Furthermore after the scaling change, some icons on my 1080 monitor's desktop get larger, as if some scaling is applied to them. Is there any solution to this? At the moment I have had to set the scaling back to 100% on my main monitor in order to use chrome on the smaller monitors.
Surfing the web like normal with Photoshop in the background (not doing anything on it yet)Monitor goes dark blue/green and returns to normal saying Photoshop has stopped working, and saying in the bottom right corner that the driver had failed and then recovered.
