Try to check the connection of your display. Try to blow up the socket if you feel the socket was not really clean. Try to check your display, is there any damage from it? Have you tried with another source? VGA Driver update?

I would advise to simply purchase a new laptop. Granted, according to the web site you referenced, the price of a new screen is a small fraction of cost the laptop. However, given the age of the laptop (yes, two years is old when dealing with computers), you would probably be better off simply purchasing a new laptop. Plus, if you're not careful when ...

I cannot attach images to comments so decided to post this as a possible answer. Subpixel arrangement Subpixel rendering is a technique which utilizes a quirk found in most monitors' physical hardware to have clearer-than-normally-possible text. However, if its settings do not match your monitor, the text will look especially ugly while everything else ...

Yes, you can. Just make sure that you have a sufficiently strong PSU and cables to connect it and that you did not already put other cards in your PCI-e slots. According to this you should have two x16 and one x8 slots. If nothing else is in them you could even use up to three graphics cards.

Conversion between VGA and S-Video is not instantaneaous like HDMI <-> DVI. You need a special converter device. The most popular one is called KanaaN. Search "S-Video to VGA" on Amazon or E-Bay. Costs something between 10 and 20 USD.

I've often seen this issue due to the sensor constantly switching between displays - does the same issue occur if you have only the external display enabled? Also, is this Lenovo one of the ones which has the dual-GPU (Intel integrated + Nvidia/ATI chip)? Those commonly cause such issues while the system is attempting to enable/disable the appropriate GPU. ...

I've had this problem in the past using docking stations. The problem is with the connection pins between the laptop and the docking station.

One should be on the laptop, and ...

I started googling because I really like this idea. I found an old stack post from 6 years ago that led me to this. http://graphics.cs.columbia.edu/projects/m3/index.html It lets you assign a mouse position to a keyboard shortcut, or maybe an unused mouse button. So you can hit a key and be where you need to be. OR Maybe mouse acceleration might ...

You don't have to fish with the mouse, just right-click on the taskbar and choose "Cascade windows" this will cascade all opened windows on your screen including any opened window in any monitor.

Actually, this is quite normal... Although most quality monitors that are "identical" often have a very similar display, that isn't always the case. Manufacturing differences, variance in components, settings, user configuration, default calibration, connection type, etc... there are a host of possibilities. Just because 2 monitors are the same, doesn't ...

I'm afraid that Asus is only an "HD" screen, 1920x1080 (1080p), so it's gonna have some pretty big pixels to fill a 28" screen. If your Mac has a retina screen you're gonna find the Asus hugely disappointing. You really want a 1440p screen (2560x1440) or better to give you what you are wanting to see. Have a look at EveryMac to see exactly what screen ...

not within the normal windows user settings. I use a laptop sometimes connected to my TV, I find the "close lid or screen" behaviour is the way to go. Mine is set to "do nothing" when i close the laptop screen. This means the playback on the laptop continues via hdmi or plex but I don't have a duplicate screen distracting me. Hope you agree with my ...

Your monitor support two HDMI 1.4 inputs. These have a maximum resolution of 4096×2160p/30 Hz. Thus you do not need to use DP, but if you use HDMI then the refresh rate will be rather low. This is fine for static images, but not when scrolling or gaming. And manhy people posted about loosing track of the mouse on 30Hz 4K TVs. I guess the same issue will ...

Looking by eye is never a good way to know for sure. The most probable cause is that VSync is enabled, which locks the FPS to 60hz, not 40. In order to know for sure, either use a program such as FRAPS that uses overlay to display the FPS or search for the console command to show the fps, such as c_drawfps 1 If your game truly only shows around 40 FPS, ...

I think the reason is the matte display! No matter how hard you try to adjust the settings you can't get rid of the fuzziness on the screen. I also suffer from myopia and face exact similar conditions as you described. The moment you start looking at the matte screen your eyes feel heavy and strained. Matte screen doesn't suit everyone.

What is the OS you are using? Windows, Linux, macOS? As I have just bought my first 4k monitor for my Macbook. Yes, for macOS it by default use 4 pixels to display as 1 pixel, so as a result by default it will yield 1920x1080 working space. If you want only 1920x1080 of working space, I suggest you buy just 24-inch 4k monitor as 27-inch will result in ...

You're going to need a new cable, you won't be able to modify the ones you have in order to make that work. You need either a male vga to male vga, or an adapter that goes from male vga to female dvi and then use your male dvi to male dvi cable. By the way, a plain male to male vga cable or the adapter will cost you under $5.

"Many modern laptops include a built-in dedicated light sensor. If yours does, and if you're running Windows 7 Professional or higher, you can enable a Windows feature called "Adaptive Brightness" which will do what you want. Otherwise, click here and download "SoftonEyes"."

The USB 3.0 standard specifies it must be backwards compatible with USB 2.0. It will (should) work but only at 2.0 speeds. I would suggest purchasing a PCI or PCI-E 1x USB 3.0 card, they are relatively cheap and can be had for under $10 with a little due diligence, which will give you full USB 3.0 support.

I had a similar problem with an X61s, and it turned out it is a BIOS setting. In Config-Display set display brightness on battery to "high" or something similar.

Test the laptop on an external screen to see if any issues happen. If not the screen has been damaged. If so, the video card is failing(sometimes it can be replaced but only on rather high end laptops. Most times it is a part of the board.). Hope this works.

You are referring to the Windows Snap feature (also known as "Aero Snap" in Windows 7). When you have a two monitor display, windows essentially treats both monitors as one, so the "inside" of both monitors is like the "middle" of a single monitor.

Windows is built to be run on multiple hardware configurations. Therefore there are just basic drivers for graphic cards because it would take to much space to contain all relevant drivers. To switch resolutions that are different from the "standard" you will have to install the drivers from your graphics card's manufacturer.

I know this is an old one but I just had the same problem with the same TV. Plugging the TV into HDMI 2 immediately solved all the problems. I've read somewhere before that if you call the HDMI channel "PC" or something, TV's are smart enough to know to do something different than a standard STB with overscan settings (and I noticed they changed too) and ...
