Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074 Notebook ?

Toshiba Satellite Laptop refuses to allow Dual Monitors

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4384 Laptop Purchased in 2007.I have an LCD from an HP Pavilion f1703 computer(couple of years old, not sure if the number refers to the LCD or the computer...) hooked up to that laptop. For some reason, despite having the settings right, and being pretty damn sure the laptop is able to use dual monitors, the external LCD, when the computer boots up, comes on after being asleep, or I change the settings, only blinks on for a few seconds, during which I can see the screen and run my mouse across it, and then it blinks off again. The computer itself acts like the screen is still there, I can drag programs over there, etc, but the secondary LCD remains blank.What do I do so I can use Dual Monitors with this laptop?\015

Answers :

I have an A105 set up on dual screens, and it works great. As I recall, you have to do the dual screen setup in the control panel, display, settings.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.


No that will NOT work, first the PC's VGA doesn't have any "Channel" Second you must install Drivers for said VGA card, and the card MUST have a TV out connector either SVHS, or Composite, video out, or as of late HDMI. You Cannot "Receive" a VGA, si ... Toshiba Satellite L300-EZ1004V Notebook
