Add a keyboard layout (in Regional settings). Settings - Time and Language - Region and Language - Add a language. This does not change the UI language, only offers you more languages (including left to right languages) to use in applications (such as MS Word).

I'm testing on Ubuntu 12.04 with X.Org X Server 1.11.3. I tried Johan's solution and it appeared at first to work, but I found on my system the text after "local:" was being ignored. The result was that all local users were given access to my X session rather than one user. The magic I found worked was: xhost +SI:localuser:masi Replace the portion after ...

Instead of using the Windows display settings, have you looked in the system tray for Intel graphics control panel? It should be installed with the full video driver. You can customize your options there.

Did you even try Googling, “IPS224V-PN power supply” because there are tons of results for power supplies appropriate for the LG Flatron IIPS224V-PN out there.

this might help. The only thing is that the program is an overlay so if you move your window or scroll, the highlighted stuff won't move with the window.

I'm rather certain that you can't attach an external monitor in safe mode, does this also occur when booting normally? If so, try hitting windows key + P Then hit right arrow and enter, if nothing occurs, try it again, 3 to 4 times.

Try your Windows + monitor switch keys; usually Win + F4 or Win + F5 keys. Tap these two key together, and wait for a few seconds, as the switch might take a bit longer. Try repeating these as there are 4-options through which you will need to cycle. Hope this helps.

This is a fairly decent question. But there doesn’t seem to be a clean/off-the-shelf answer. I found these AppleScripts (RotateDisplayScripts.zip) via this Mac OS X Hints thread that supposedly allow one to rotate screens via AppleScript (obviously) but I could not get them to work. Note that to get it to initially work, you need to go into “Security & ...

This is a very old monitor. It's more surprising that it was recently working than that it is not. I can share some information on it but, unfortunately, don't have a good solution. The connector is a bit of a puzzle. Those two missing pins served a purpose, but not for your monitor. This was an early form of "plug and play", used from the mid-1990s ...

I used Cursor Position from CNET.com: From Mattlav Software: Cursor Position allows you to work out the exact X and Y position of your cursor even as you move it, it also tells you how many pixels you have gone across if you move the cursor with the application open.

I'd suggest replacing the unit. By the looks of the link you've sent it's just a faulty unit. "Yes, my replacement XPS did not have grid lines. The new one has a very sharp screen and has been great so far."

Most LCD/LED/Plasma TVs crop the outer of the video input from HDMI although I don't know why. It's not OS depending. For some Samsung TVs you can select the option full 16:9/screen fit to disable cropping. On Sony TVs there are also similar features but I forgot the name. For some other TVs it's impossible to overcome this, but if you're outputting from an ...

You won't be able to adjust the brightness from your laptop - you'll need to use the physical control buttons on the monitor. According to the manual you should go Menu -> Color -> Brightness.

I found a solution on the freedesktop.org bugtracker involving rewriting the EDID data over the i2c bus.

I upgraded to Windows 10 an encountered a problem with my TV's resolution (plugged in as a HDMI monitor): though I could still "set" a custom resolution in NVidia's Control Panel, it would keep the Windows 10 resolution, even after restarting and such, with fully upgraded drivers. I fixed it by following the advice from here, which says: Go to the ...

From the specs you posted your laptop has one VGA and one HDMI output. If you want two external monitors, one would have to be VGA and one would have to be HDMI.

Try disconnecting everything down to the basics. disconnect everything else just to eliminate any external hardware causing the issue. If you don't see anything.

I've been experiencing this problem myself and I've just managed to solve it. In my case, it was caused by the page containing the player being zoomed in.

Not possible without additional hardware. What you’d need is a HDMI grabber, like these. Of course, whether the latency induced by such a device would still be acceptable is yet another issue.

Yes, you'll need to attach a standard A-B USB cable from one of your computer's USB ports to the back of the monitor. Here's a picture of that monitor's ports with the USB (B) port circled:

if I use a HDMI converter on the VGA cable and connect to my TV, will I get widescreen resolution? No. Not automatically, and/or if the problem is the fact that you are using VGA in the first place.

I would also check the CPU. It can happen that it is not seated properly in its socket. The easiest test would be removing the cooler and CPU, see if there is dust or dirt on the cooler or on CPU pins or CPU socket, clean if necessary. Also check if there are any pins bent. Then put the CPU back into the socket, make sure it is arrested properly and ...

Here is my suggestion for your problem: 1 To clarify things, dissconect all the components in your PC from the motherboard. Those are: RAM sticks , the graphics card , all HDD/CD-ROM cables, leaving only the power supply cables on the motherboard . (this is your buzzer) If the PC turns on, try adding one component at a time to identify the problem. ...

With the Oculus Rift dev kit and Virtual Desktop you can do anything you normally do on your computer, but in VR. You may have to experiment with positioning to get desired results if you are going to be laying down since normal view will be with your head straight and level.

I am just taking a wild guess, but Windows 10 has ITB (in the box) driver for Nvidia. You could try over installing previous whql driver for your system. Provided that the monitor you are running is driven through Nvidia GPU. To check that, Open Nvidia control panel, goto set physX page, you'll see the ports driven by each GPU.

Generally, low voltage electronics will be stepping that down to much lower voltages anyway, but you could be damaging the internal power supply. The important parts are, 19v @ 2.6A = ~50W -> what the monitor can be expected to draw 15v @ 5.0A = ~75W -> power available Internally, these voltages are being stepped down to 12v, 5v, 3.3v, and lower. The ...

Yes, it is possible to damage it. You can have more amps all you want, but not significantly more or less volts. 19.6v vs 15v is a big difference. Most computer things are design for + or - 5%. It has no impact on the computer. I would fine a new power brick ASAP.

With Windows 10 it's a bit different, you can go to the time settings via clicking on the clock, then into date & time formats. Once you've done that you can change the formats to HH:mm (uppercase important) under short & long. It's a new menu and a bit easier to get into, but similar to older versions of Windows as per the other answers.

Hertz (Hz) and frames-per-second (FPS) are two independent factors. For your monitor, hertz is the number of times your monitor can redraw the image on the screen. The higher the hertz, the smoother the movement on screen is. This value is based on the hardware in your monitor. FPS is the number of your times your graphics card can build the image your ...

Alex, First off, thank you for your answer. I'm new to the forum and I posted a question as a guest.

Assuming you're on Windows 7/8/8.1, hit Win-P, and select second screen only. This will force Windows to use only the external monitor. There is no need (nor any way) to do this via the registry. The laptop has no concept of built-in or external, just a port with a monitor on it.

On my Lenovo none of the above worked. I had to roll back the display adapter driver, for some reason the automatic update of my graphic card is not compatible with computer.
