I use either VGA or HDMI connectors to connect to an external monitor.
I'm not sure what you're asking on the "power cord". Are you asking about the charging "brick" and such? Or?

I NEED APOWER CORD FOR DAEWOO L950


I can't find information online about your monitor, so I'll give you a generic answer for all monitors.

Almost all monitors use a C13 cord - the same kind used for a desktop computer. Some use a C7 (two-wire, like that used for some name brand laptop adapters) or a C5 (three-wire, used on other laptop adapters)
C13 image:
173-0602-e.jpg
C7 image: ac15wna-r.jpg
C5 image:
173-21103-e.jpg
These images were lifted from the Mouser Electronics website (AC Power Cords Mouser ). They also carry C13 cords with right-angled plugs, which may be more convenient with some monitors.

There are a very few monitors that use an external power supply, which is like a laptop computer power adapter. If this is the case, the voltage and current requirements for the power supply should be on the label on the back of the monitor, and the only other thing you have match is the plug on the power adapter output cord (it needs to fit the power jack on the back of the monitor). Note: the voltage of the power supply must be the same as that shown on the label (usually 12 VDC) and the current rating must be the same or higher. If you don't see the voltage and current listed on the label, look closely at the power jack - the numbers may be molded into the plastic next to it.

It is rare to find a monitor with a permanently attached power cord. If this is the case with yours and it is damaged, do not attempt to splice it outside of the monitor. Put a replacement plug on if the good part of the cord is long enough, and use a good extension cord. Otherwise, you should open up the case and replace the entire cord. You will probably have to get a connector for the part of the power cord inside the monitor also. (If you are good with soldering, you may be able to splice to this connector, using heat-shrink tubing to insulate the connections.)

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Ibook external monitor hardware


Hi,
Check which video out connector your mac has (there have been a few in the last gew years) and then buy the appropriate adaptor from the apple store. (or ebay) This will give you a standard VGA connector that you can then connect to most monitors with a standard VGA lead.

How to connect laptop to Panasonic TV LCD TX-L42U2B


Laptop to TV hookup all depends on what the laptop has for output to a monitor and what the TV has for input. Your laptop should have a monitor output, a 15 pin female jack. You need a cable (male to male) with these 15 pin connectors at each end to hookup to a TV with a PC input jack. For the audio, use a 3.5mm stereo audio cable. Hookup from earphone out on the laptop to the TVs PC audio input jack. If the TV has no PC input jacks, there are other ways to connect. See this link:

How do i connect my Hannspree 22" monitor to my Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop?


On the back of your laptop there is a vga connector, to the left are two(2) usb connectors and the right is your network connector . You need a vga cord (if you bought the monitor new it should include one.) Plug the cord into this port and into the back of the monitor. Plug the monitor in and the laptop should recognize thatthere is an external monitor connected and switch the video output to that monitor.
