SOURCE: replace broken usb port on dell latitude laptop

You will have to take the machine apart somewhat, or at least to the point of being able to disconnect and remove the usb port. Here's a link to the D600 service manual download. It will guide you through the breakdown process.

SOURCE: D800 laptop will not display on external monitor

Most laptops go into standby mode when the lid is closed. To stop this, (Windows XP) click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, then click on the Advanced tab, select "Do nothing" in the drop-down for "When I close the lid of my portable computer"

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

What is the use of rear usb ports


Hi,
The USB ports on the monitor will work only if you connect the monitor via a USB cable to your PC/Laptop's USB port. Sounds awkward. Doesn't it? There must be a USB cable with flat socket on one end and trapezium shape jack on one end. It should be in the box which the monitor came in. The USB ports in the monitor are just another extended USB ports for your PC/Laptop. If you can't find the cable mentioned above, it is the same cable you connect to a printer, scanner,........ In some cases you might need to install a driver which should also come along with monitor. Mostly you don't need to install.
Good luck.

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

Can i upgrade my graphic card of dell inspiron n4030


It depends on what you would like to use it for. It's not feasible to upgrade the internal graphics card but you can purchase USB graphics cards to use.
The limitation of external cards is the data transfer rate of the USB port. Your model of laptop has USB 2.0 which would be the slowest of the possible external graphics options.
Essentially, you can purchase USB video adapters but they really just allow you to connect an additional monitor. Here is an example:

I need to connect a VGA dell monitor my Toshiba Laptop


HDMI is digital
VGA (the 15 pin connector) is analog.
If your connector has the digital to analog interface it should work, but likely it does not have that chip and thus will not work.

Your description of the problem tells me it may never work as you have it connected. Possibly it might be that the monitor is required to be powered on before the laptop is booted, but that only works in some cases.

I have also seen some work if a 2-step connector is used.
VGA to DVI connector, followed by DVI to HDMI connector.
DVI was the step toward digital that came before the HDMI standard was implemented and was only partially digital. DVI and VGA do not carry control signals nor audio. HDMI carries both those as well as the video.

YMMV but I think it would be cheaper and more efficient to actually purchase a monitor with a digital input (HDMI or DVI).
Without the digital/analog converter interface a digital output device (your laptop with HDMI out) can never operate an analog device (your Dell monitor with VGA input).

My Dell Latitude D820 has many problems.... The biggest one is that I came home from work to turn it on, and the screen is black... When it turns on, it is completely white. I am so upset! I just got this...


Screen issue:
It sounds like either the lcd screen or video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the external monitor displays ok that proves your video card is ok and your lcd screen is the problem. If the external monitor displays the black or white screen like your lcd screen then your video card inside the computer is bad. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Laptop hot:

Some laptops and the ac adapter get very hot. If the laptop is not shutting down, then it is not overheating, so don't worry about it. You can buy a laptop cooling pad that has fans on it and it plugs into one of the usb ports on the laptop. The laptop sits on it to keep cooler.

Your battery is probably dead so that is why you can only power it up using the ac adapter power cord. Once the power cord is removed, the laptop will turn off. Batteries only have a useful life, and after that, they have to be replaced.

Connect Dell Mini with HDMI to VGA PC flat monitor


hi,
you would need an HDMI to VGA adapter. sometimes it would come in a form of a separate cable or just a regular adapter which would convert the HDMI end to VGA (the blue one that has 15 pins)
you can purchase these cables from your local computer store.
hope this helps

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.

Take Care

Is it possible to connect 2 external monitors to a dell xps m1330?


Yes, it is possible you can connect 2 or 2 billion external monitors, all you need is the extension cable, which is normally called a spilter or usb to vga spilter, and you can connect as amany as you want.
remember, USB to VGA adapter. or spilter.
else

There's plenty of evidence to indicate that using two screens is more effective than one; at least up to a certain point. There's also a strong indication that those two monitors need to be the same size, since your visual receptors seem to get confused by screens of different sizes. A recent Utah study indicates that using 2 20-inch monitors allowed people to complete tasks 44% faster than using 1 18-inch monitor, making a pair of 20-inch screens from Dell for under $600 sound like a steal. Since many people I know have switched to using a laptop as their primary machine no matter where they are, the trick of using two monitors (at least when docked) can be crucial.
The trick I use for connecting 2 external monitors to my own laptop is to connect one to the external video port on my laptop and a second monitor gets connected to a DisplayLink adapter. The adapter connects via USB allowing you to extend your desktop to another screen. They are sold under a variety of brand names which makes the adapters a little tricky to track down, but a quick search of eBay for USB to DVI Adapter turns up several options that are basically the same thing under several different names. DisplayLink also links to several online stores, although they do a lousy job of labeling which country each store serves.
