Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario F761US Notebook ?

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken

\015 I have a Compaq Presario F761US laptop with a broken screen and am replacing it with a Dell Inspiron 15. The idea is to use the old laptop as a backup desktop (and it works ok with a Dell monitor). The question is now: how does one hook it up with a Gateway monitor from the cathode ray tube era? Both have VGA cable capability, and the Gateway monitors in the basement may be lacking pin 9. When I plugged one into the laptop, nothing showed on the screen; when I unplugged it, the screen showed that it was missing its signal. Plug in, the message disappears. Plug out, the message re-appears. Also, I am interested in hooking it up with tv sets, both old and new. The Dell monitor is one of the newer (?) flat screen models (label on back is hidden by plugs and hard to decipher) and the old Gateway monitor that showed a blank was a 500-069EV, built in January 1999. The other Gateway CRTs are even older Gateway2000s. All of the gateway cathode-rays have built in VGA cords with an apparent missing pin 9 (I think). The TV sets I am considering hooking up with are an early 2000s vintage RCA, a couple of Sony Trinitrons and a Sony Bravia flat screen.\015

Hi:
\015\012Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!
