I have lent a CRT monitro to afriend to use with her laptop. However, she gets three distinct images on the CRT screen. Presumably this is connected with the fact that the laptop graphics driver is designed for use with the LCD screen. Can anyone please advise how to correctly set up the CRT monitor / laptop combo? Thanks
What a shame. Different manufacturers have different ways of 'piping' the display to the built-in screen, external monitors / projectors etc.
Typically, it is necessary to cycle through the choices by pressing a Function key whilst holding another key (such as Shift or Ctrl) - that's as much as I can offer without even knowing who made the laptop.
The information is undoubtedly in the manual, and on the manufacturer's website.
Hi I've known this problem if the monitor can not cope with the screen settings offered by a "modern" laptop trying to use an "old" monitor. It may simply be that the two components can not talk to each other. Solution - try a newer monitor.
