Hey everybody, I don't know if this is the correct place to put post this, so sorry if is not.

I got a Vaio (VGN-FJ270) is not new, in fact I think I have it since 2004. It uses an Intel Centrino Single processor (I bought it a couple of months before dual processors were available). Well the thing is that I recently bought a Samsung LCD tv/monitor and for the last week I have been trying to used it as an extenal monitor. Once connected the monitor doesn't recognize that there is an external device connected but the laptop recognizes that there is an external monitor but doesn't really recognize it. The thing is that I try using my work laptop a new Dell Precision M4300 and it works without any problems and I didn't had to modify any settings to be able to make it work. Everything work with no problems, so now I'm sure that the problem is not the monitor or the VGA cable that I'm using, I'm pretty sure that it has to do with my Vaio.

So far I have done every possible thing, I download the latest update from Intel, went into the BIAS to see if the laptop was setup to allow for external monitors and it was, try changing every setting that I could and nothing.

Now I don't know if my graphics or video card is not enough for the dual screen to work or if the processor is not enough. Right now I don't know what else to do so that is why I'm asking you guys for some help to see if any of you has had this problem before or know what may be wrong.

Thanks :)

Right click on desktop. Go down to properties. Pop-up opens. Go to "Settings" tab. Under "Settings" tab look for "Display" and you should be able to scroll down to select Multiple Monitors.


Let me know if it works.

Believe me I have try that and it doesn't work. I even went a step further and under control panel you can go into the Intel Graphics manager were you can also set the dual screen directly there. Under that same manager the laptop recognizes that there is a monitor attached to it and I even go into the monitor properties and it shows the monitor code and even the VGA cable that I'm using. I also try using the direct way that is with Fn+F7 there it lets you change from notebook to LCD or notebook+LCD, so if it lets me do that option is because it understand that there is a monitor or else it wouldn't let me.

So I don't know, I just hate not being able to use a brand new monitor to expand my desktop.

But thanks for the advice.
