Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor ?

My Samsung SyncMaster 245bw suddenly will not sync with my Dell XPS M1210 laptop. I don't think the monitor is broken because I still get the "check signal cable" box and the "digital" and "analog" messages. It just suddenly started not connecting. I've turned it and the computer off and on in any number of sequences. Help! Laptop screen too small to do my work!


Answers :

On the laptop keyboard there should be a picture of a monitor on one of the function keys like F8 when you find it press the fn button and and monitor key to go through the external display options.

usually the options are press fn and the function key once for external display only, 2 times for both laptop screen and external and 3 times for back to just laptop. some have more like auto extended desktop but just hit the fn key with the function key with the monitor picture on it and wait about 15 seconds then press again till you get it on the type you want
Hello, Bobbie.

If your laptop boots OK without the Syncmaster, press the CRT/LCD key once or twice (or Fn and F8) to see if any display.

Usually the message that you are getting indicates that the laptop was not powered on, since the monitor doesn't see the signal.

It's possible that your monitor's VGA cable is bad, so I would suggest, if still a problem, to connect the Syncmaster to another laptop or desktop. Wiggle the VGA cable to see if any difference.

Hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
