Using Vga To Connect Laptop To Monitor


I'm using a macbook pro, and i have a minidisplay to vga adapter, and i'm buying a 22-inch vga/dvi display. My question is, will everything look/act okay on the external display if i'm using a vga? I've heard mixed reports about video quality, etc.

Connecting Laptop To Tv Monitor By Vga Cable

I have a laptop (with display at 1366x768) and i have a vga cable connecting to a tv monitor. When i have the settings at 1366x768, my laptop display is great, but the tv monitor displays the screen small and centered to the right, and doesn't show the full screen. If i put the settings at 1280x768, my laptop screen gets a little fuzzy, but shows good on my tv monitor. Is there a way i can have it so the tv monitor is in its best display setting while having my laptop at a different display setting? Or any other help fixing the problem? I want both laptop and tv monitor to show the full screen, i do not want it as one extended screen.

How To Connect Monitor To Laptop ?

How do i connect a monitor to laptop?

Answer:- follow the below steps:

1. Check whether your monitor has a dvi (digital) or vga (analog) port, both of which are generally built in.contact your vendor if your laptop does not have either. In this case, you can use a special adapter to connect the external monitor. These adapters are model specific and should be bought directly from the vendor. 2.connect one end of the dvi or vga cord to the dvi or vga port of your laptop and the other end to the monitor. Your laptop should automatically identify the external monitor as a new hardware device. 3. Most laptops will show the desktop on both screens by default, which is known as the mirror view. You can use function keys with common combination such as fn + f5, fn + f3, fn + f8 and fn + f9 to toggle between the two screens. Refer to the laptop's user manual for the right key combination to toggle between the displays. Alternatively, with many laptops you can also switch to the extended desktop mode. This means your desktop screen will be stretched across both the monitors. Refer to your user manual to switch to this mode.

Cannot Connect Laptop To External Monitor

I recently started having problems with my hp mini where the laptop itself would kick on but the screen wouldn't. The good people at hp told me that this is a hardware problem and that i have to send them my beloved baby. While awaiting the arrival of the box in which i was to send the aforementioned baby, i was using the computer by connecting it to an external monitor. Recently, this stopped working. I have tried hooking it up to three different monitors, and the monitor will blink at me, rudely informing me that the connection is there, it's just not working. Is this related to my confirmed hardware problem? Or is this a software problem?

Connect Laptop At Higher Resolution To Monitor Or 1080p Tv

Can a 15" laptop with 1280x768 connect at higher res to a big monitor or 1080p tv? I bought at 18" laptop with 1080p. It connects well to my 46" 1080p tv via hdmi (playing blu-ray disks). And it connects well with my 21" monitor at 1050. (It wont try to go above the native res of my monitor-as if my monitor is telling the laptop what its max resolution is. )

But the laptop is very heavy, and i would mostly use it hooked up to a monitor or tv. I'm thinking of returning it and getting a 15" laptop with the same specs, including the video card. But the laptop can only go to 768. But there is this 'projection only' mode that i'm guessing could go as high as either my tv or my monitor (even if it can display it on my laptop screen). What do you think? Will the 15" perform as well as the 18" when connected? Or will it constantly object to being driven at higher resolutions? (Like - what will happen when i disconnect from the monitor and its being driven at above its 'native' resolution. )
