Preferred Solution: Is my laptop compatible with the monitor I'm going to buy?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:My LCD Monitor..DVI compatible?

The information just isn't there. Either contact them or get the monitor and see for yourself. By the way, you're blowing DVI out of proportion, the picture quality difference, if any, isn't noticable. I use a DVI connection with my LCD TV but only because I sometimes want to watch TV while I kill the combine or vice versa using the Picture In Picture (PIP) function. Otherwise, there's no difference for me between VGA and DVI. I've not heard anything to the contrary of my experiences either.

I'm thinking of changing to XP so started gathering hardware driver updates.

I've drawn a blank over the monitor - a Taxan Ergovision 755 TCO99 bought in 2000.

I think Taxan must be gone as there's no website. Microsoft's Windows catalog XP hardware list shows no Taxan monitors and google comes up with little more than old reviews.

I don't know if this matters anyway? When I've had to reload Win98 2nd ed, the monitor worked before the Taxan drivers went on, so I assume I wouldn't be left looking at a dead screen under XP?

My grandson who is in the military bought a new 23 inch computer monitor and then was deployed so he gave the monitor to my wife. When I connected it to her computer with WXP, the display was too large for the screen. When on the Internet you cannot see the minimizing icon or the X to close the program. In addition, the fonts were difficult to read and some window frames that contained text were so faint you could not read the text. I believe the new monitor resolution was 1080X1920.
I have bought new larger size computer monitors in the past and had no difficulty. I reduced the recommended resolution which brought the above referenced icons into view but the fonts were still difficult to read.

My question: Is there some way you have to determine if your computer can support a monitor before you make the purchase?
 

A:Solved: New monitor not compatible with WXP

What's the description of the device there?

Double-click that device to open its properties window, then click the "Driver" tab.

Problem:
My fiance has a Dell Dimension 4700 with a 17" FP monitor also from Dell; both are 2.5 years old.
(That's not the problem... or is it? LOL)

Earlier today, when the monitor returned from 'sleep mode', the monitor's on button flickered on and off, resulting in no display whatsoever. Teasing the on/off switch didn't seem to cause the button to remain on or off - it kept cycling between the two power states. Giving it a several hour rest to cool down didn't seem to help, either.

Question (this is for a short-term solution):
Is it okay to hookup an old Gateway CRT monitor to the Dell system without endangering the CPU?

Granted, the monitor is old... but it has worked for 15 years and still seems to have some life in it. My fiance is concerned that there could be issues with proprietary wiring, and with that in mind, obviously doesn't want to fry his CPU.

*~*~*~*~*
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in this small issue.

A:Would a 15-yr-old monitor be compatible with a 2.5-yr-old Dell?

Have at it! As long as it has a VGA connection you should be all good. At the worst, you won't get an image on the monitor at all.

I've had the pleasure of hauling freakishly heavy, circa 1980's Mitsubishi CRT's out of a place, and they still worked on fairly modern computers. Those *******s.

If I overlooked an answer to my question already.....sorry.
However here goes....I am trying to fix a friends Northgate computer for her.

The monitor is a Northgate Innovations flat screen, which I can't seem to get to display anything better than 16 colors. I have tried every CD I have including my win XP professional OS installation disc and her Northgate driver and application recovery discs, all to no avail. Windows does not seem to like any of the other drivers I suggest. It wants to stick with the piece of crap presently installed. Why? Apparently only God knows. Northgate has closed up shop and I haven't had much luck browsing the net looking for compatible drivers and \ solution.

Anyone with any workable compatible drivers so I can get this thing to set a 32 bit color display, in the Display Properties\settings screen. Any suggestions?
 

A:Northgate monitor driver or a compatible one

We need to know more about the computer, specifically the video card or motherboard model if the video is integrated. Everest should help you identify the motherboard and/or the video card. Its not the monitor that needs the driver, its the video card.

Everest: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

For the motherboard look under the Motherboard -> Motherboard -> Motherboard Name.

For the video card look under Display GPU category OR under the Devices -> Physical Devices category for a video card.

So I've been building my pc (first time) and its be frustrating to say the least.

I've hit another road block here, my video card is DVI-I and my monitor has two connections, VGA and DVI, my Monitor came with a VGA Cable and my Video Card came with two VGA-DVI adapters. So I put the adapter on the video card end and plugged the VGA cable into the VGA slot on the monitor.

Nothing.

So I put the adapter on both ends but the DVI-I adapter wont fit into the DVI slot!

Is there anyway to get around any of this or am I totally screwed?

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

A:How to find an external monitor compatible with Windows 10

We need the full model number of the laptop but I suspect that when you upgraded to Windows 10 your video is now running a generic driver that does not support the HDMI port. Go into device manager and see what is shown for "display adapter" please. The problem is not the driver for the monitor it is the video card driver. There is no way to replace the video card. We just need to get the right Windows 10 drivers installed to make the external monitor work. It is connected by HDMI, right, not VGA?

Hi,First of all - English is not my first language so I`m sorry for grammar mistakes.I have the following problem:When I use a set of dell optiplex 9020 with dell monitor E178WFP they seem to be incompatible - monitor is entering power save mode and computer is not booting up. Exactly not booting - after turning 9020 on even if I change monitors computer is not responding. Everything works fine with other non-dell monitor though, hp monitor for example. Best part is that when turning 9020 on with monitor cable unplugged (which is D-Sub) after windows finishes loading then plugging dell monitor it displays everything fine. Monitor is ok - works fine with dell 7010. Computer is ok - works with hp monitor. Problem appears only with dell 9020 and dell monitor together. Monitor is quite old (2008 year) so I think if there is some compatibility issue of it with new machines. It looks like this monitor is causing that computer cannot run through POST. Computer has only onboard graphics. Tried updating bios with no results.It`s a serious problem for me because I have replaced 8 dell 7010 computers with 9020 and now any of them 'isnt working'. Buying new monitor for every computer would be quite painful. Any advice would be appreciated.

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

I have an older laptop.. it's a Lenovo ThinkPad T41 2379.

I want to put a new HDD in it... since it only has a 40G and I have filled it up.

It's the kind that sits on a little platform thing and slides out when you unscrew the screw. There is NO cable, SATA, ribbon or otherwise. It just looks like an IDE connection that you plug the HDD directly into.

If I were shopping in a store I could find this by looking at it, but I have no idea what it's called and want to order one from newegg.com.

Can anyone tell me what it's called "technically", or provide a newegg link?

Boy I am just not laptop hardware savvy. lol

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Need Compatible HDD for Laptop

It would be an IDE laptop drive.
There is probably an adapter on the IDE connection of the drive
to adapt it to the laptop.
The adapter will need to be removed and installed on the new drive.
You dont want to get a drive that is larger than your hardware can handle.
If it can do 40GB,it will probably handle a 120GB drive.
There should be screws in the side of the hard drive carrier you remove
to remove the drive from the carrier.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1213046768588

problem is that it has vista, I would personally like to "upgrade" to windows Xp Pro
or
Xp Pro x64 bit edition

I was wondering with the specs if everything was winXP compatible

A:New laptop- is it XP compatible?

XP is compatible with anything that runs Vista. Vista is a lot more demanding, the part that wouldn't be compatible is the drivers. I have a toshiba laptop that came with Vista, and I do want XP on it, but my problem, ther is no driver on XP for the wireless card. So I either give up the wireless card, figure out how to make a driver for it (probably will never happen), or hope they eventually come up with one. The only reason that my driver wouldn't work is that the wireless card is se up differently then most I think so there isn't a driver for it except through Toshiba and they don't support XP for this laptop since I last checked, not too long ago.

The best way to check this is to go to the companies support site and see if the drivers for everything work with XP.

I did just check the website and it doesn't seem like they support XP either, so it can be a hit or miss then. You can try setting up XP as a dual boot (like I did) to test it. You can also call them or write to them and ask them, they may have a better answer than I do. I never used an Asus product before so I don't know too much about them.

XP Pro will be easier than XP 64 since a 64 bit OS has less drivers avalibale (just not as commonly used yet).

A:Compatible Printer for Laptop?

Kodak has an ad for the "kodak esp 5" which brags on low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), ie; cheaper inks
This is an All-in-One printer + Copier device and if I had NOT already purchased the
Canon mp470 (pixma fine) which I love, I would go with the Kodak

Hi. I've been using HP laptop (15-n274ca) for almost 2 years. Since couple of my friends have told me that I should change HHD 1TB to SSD instead of buying another laptop, I would like to know if my laptop is competable to use SATA 3 SSD. Also, If you don't mind would you give me a recommandation of SSD brand? Thank you guys a lot!   - My Laptop speificiation - Operation : Windows 10 Home 64 bitCPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60GHzMemories : 16GB ( 8GB  Samsung 1600MHz + 8GB  1600MHz)System Broad : 2164 29.40System Bios : F.42Graphic Card 1: Radeon (TM) HD 8670MGracphic Card2 : Intel(R) HD Graphics Family Hard Drive : TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100 - 931.51 GB

Not even an issue. SATA3 will clock back to SATA 2 if needed but your laptop is SATA 3. Best consumer SSD is Samsung 850 Evo but others make very good ones, too. SanDisk, Kingston, etc.

I am looking at a laptop for a fellow student. He upgraded from 8.1 to 10 shortly after 10 became available. Recently it was running slow and shuts off sometimes. Fan vent was clogged. CPU temp a little too high. First of all there are no drivers for Windows 10 from Toshiba. This laptop is not on their compatibility list.

I was running ccleaner and noticed its taking a long time. I looked at the CPU and Ram usage and CPU is at 7% and RAM at 49%. Then I noticed the speed of the CPU is at 1.2GHz with a Max speed of 2.6GHz. Every now and then it will jump to 2.3GHz for a second or two, then back down to 1.2 or 1.3GHz. Could this have anything to do with the 10 upgrade? Will not having the drivers for 10 create a performance issue? I think the laptop needs to go back to 8.1 but I need input from above my level (very low).

Toshiba Satellite P855-S5102
Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @2.6GHz
4G RAM Single Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

Ccleaner is still running through Edge. Been doing it for 20 minutes and still at 0% progress which is why I posted.

A:Is AGE OF EMPIRES 3 COMPATIBLE ON MY LAPTOP?

AoE 3 is a little old... so go to www.canyourunit.com and then type in the name and search/run the website. It will check your computer, but your video card may be the problem. I see that it comes with Windows 8? If so you may can get away with Windows Compatibilty mode.

A:Latest WIN 10 Upgrade not compatible with laptop. How do I f...

DIANAKD Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I wish I had good news for you -- but I don't ... While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!If that is not bad enough, the Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine. This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Recovery-Manager-Blocked-After-Windo... At this point, the ONLY way to restore her prior OS is through something known as HP Recovery Media. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your P...

Hi, Is my HP G62 320 AMD 64bit laptop compatible with 64bit virtualization?  Because I'm running Linux Mint 17.3 XFCE 64bit and Virtual Box, I also enabled SVM from bios.  Other people are telling me I have to enable other options in bios that do not seem to exist in my bios.  I have a 64bit Windows 8 install disc, but Virtual Box is insisting on booting as 32bit and of course Windows 64 is rejecting 32 boot.  My bios seems to be very limited in options.  Or is there a setting in either Mint or Virtual Box that has to be enabled or disabled? I want to install Windows 8 64 into Linux Mint 17.3 XFCE 64, as virtual.
