Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I currently operate an HP nc8430 Laptop with a docking station. Attached is a Phillips a 24" Widescreen LCD monitor. The problem is as follows: • At startup, the Laptop and LCD work fine up until the point where I log in; • Once I log in and the scripts start to run, the LCD goes offline and enters sleep mode; • I then have to go into ATI Catalyst or the Display settings to enable the LCD and change the resolution; and • However, even when I do this, the resolution on the Laptop is off (t


Answers :

1) Change the power settings to not do anything when you close the lid under AC power. The LCD isn't entering sleep mode, the laptop is.

2) Change the monitor setup so that monitor 2 (the LCD) is the main monitor.

3) Change the resolution for the LCD to the way you want it. (You may also have to use the monitor's adjustments - on the monitor - to make the display a little smaller, so you can see everything. Different monitors are masked differently.)
