A monitor or a display is an electronic visual display for computers, usually comprised of the display device, circuitry, casing, and power supply. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) thin panel, while older monitors used a cathode ray tube (CRT) about as deep as the screen size. They are connected to the computer via VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, LVDS or other proprietary connectors and signals.

The monitor is Apple Cinema HD Display (23 inch diagonal)
Trying to connect it to recent model MacBook Pro with 4 USB-C ports

Here's how it's connected:
  • The USB from the "Octopus" connector goes to a USB2 to USB-C adapter, plugged directly in.
  • The DVI from the "Octopus" connector is first going to a DVI to Mini Display Adaptor, which worked fine when plugged into the Thunderbolt port of an MacBook Air
  • This adapter goes to a ITD ITANDA Thunderbolt  to USB-C adaptor, directly plugged in.
The power light on the Apple Cinema HD Display is on, the USB is plugged in, but the computer doesn't recognize the display.

Do we have the wrong Mini-Display port to USB-C adapter?

Is there a way to attach this second monitor?

Thanks

I have a Samsung TV and an LG TV on the same computer as monitors. 32" 1080p

As long as I have the LG TV turned on, even though the picture itself has now turned completely black and the TV is worthless, the Samsung TV is crisp and clear and images are smooth and pretty.

If I turn off the LG TV, the Samsung gets grainy and washed out and looks really bad.

When I turn on the LG, the screen flashes that it is set to 60Hz when I turn it off, the screen flashes 60p. I don't know what those values represent.

When the LG is on, the TV setting on the Samsung offers me a Dynamic Picture mode and that is the setting.
Once the LG is off, the Dynamic isn't even an option, but Entertainment and Standard are the only 2 options, and Entertainment is a tad better than Standard, but images are still unacceptable.

I'm describing images, but fonts are also choppy. Just bad overall picture.

I have adjusted the resolution, the settings, everything, and I can't find the problem. The problem isn't with truetype or fonts, because images are horrific and have nothing to do with fonts.

I've reset the picture to default settings on the Samsung. I've altered color, contrast, sharpness, etc. etc. So please don't suggest that.

Any solution to this problem? I've googled and found a similar problem and the guy just ended up taking the TV back and getting a new one. Not an option for me.

Thanks!

Using XenApp 6.5 r07 / Citrix Client 4.7
Running Windows 7 on the laptop with a Lenovo docking station
2 - 1920 x 1080 monitors connected to the docking station.
When I open a Citrix app (Putty, Notepad) the window cannot be resized (no arrow indicators on window corners) and when I attempt to move the window it moves one half an inch. Can't move to another monitor. No tool tips will display for applications within a Remote desktop connection.
If I remove the laptop from the docking station, moving / resizing / tool tips work.
If I only have one monitor plugged into laptop directly, it works.
Citrix admin says Citrix server Display memory limit / ICA Graphics is set to max at 131072KB.

I have checked all blogs and Cittix support and cannot find the resolution for this.

I am having problems with my Benq BL2400 monitor. Windows 7 doesn't detect it and offers me horrible resolutions to use.

Any ideas on how to make Windows 7 detect my monitor?

I have a Sapphire 280X Toxic graphics card that is not showing any picture on a Benq BL2400 screen.

When I connect the GPU to my TV via HDMI, it shows a picture like it is supposed to when the PC boots. But Benq BL2400 doesn't have HDMI. So I connect to Benq using a cable with DVI in one end (for the Benq screen) and HDMI in the other end. That doesn't work. I then connected a cable that is DVI in both ends, and that didn't work either.

Seems like my Sapphire doesn't like my Benq screen,

Is there any trick I am missing to get it to work?

I want trying to find a solution that many businesses are asking me so solve.  I have many people that want to display one computer screen onto many smart televisions.  i.e. it is trivia night in a big bar.  They have eight televisions.  They want the computer that has the trivia questions on it to be displayed on all the televisions. If the client had installed a hdmi matrix switch this would be a simple fix, but without that wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to mirror the computer to multiple displays.  
Any help would be thanked.

We have a LCD Projector that is about 50 to 60 ft from the laptop.  We are using a 100 ft VGA cable for the connection.  There is also a TV monitor that is being in the same.  One of our tech person brought a splitter and attached to the end of the VGA cable.  Then there is a VGA cable going to the laptop and another VGA cable going to the TV.   After setting that up, we notice that the projection on the screen is dimmer and both the projection and TV monitor have wavy jumpy images.  What can we do to get clarity and get rid of the wavy jumpy images.  Thanks

Hi, I have a docking station that I've used for three years.  It has not caused any problems.  The hardware that evolved over time is the latest purchase of a Latitude from older model to new model.  Also, I have went from one monitor to two monitors with an extended mode screen setup.  The Dell Latitude docking station has two display port connections on the rear of the dock.   The latest setup has been holding up well with Windows 10 until the last month.   I've always placed the computer in sleep mode to eject from the dock environment and take it on the go.  However, the monitors fail to display lately when I redock unless I flip open the laptop screen.  Then one screen pops open while the other display remains dormant.  I can't get the dormant screen to activate unless I shutdown instead place in sleep mode.  Then turn on the computer and the two screen finally pop up after logging on to Windows 10.  Is this Windows 10 or hardware?  I'm leaning towards Windows 10 but I have no idea how to fix it.
Finally, my Dell Latitude e5430 battery went bad after 5 months.  Any recommendation on Dell adapters?  Does it not like the old Dell adapters?  Why would the battery go bad so quickly?

Hello, I am needing assistance with taking apart a Dell S2209Wb monitor.  I have a replacement power supply board that I need to install however I can only get as far as removing the 4 screws behind the monitor stand.  There seems to be no way to get the bezel off, there are no guides or grooves to use as a starting point and it simply won't come off.

Upon searching online, there are absolutely zero tutorials on how to do so with this particular model.  All other Dell model tutorials are immaterial since this model seems to be special and does not go along with the general rule of prying off the bezel.

Can anyone provide any assistance on this?  I need detailed steps and illustrations or video is a major plus.

Got a Toshiba laptop with a dead display. Connecting to an external monitor works fine, so I replaced LCD & then I'm getting a very dark display, that can only be seen if I shine a light up against the screen, which makes me think inverter, right? Replaced inverter & no change. Could I have a bad replacement? Is there any way to troubleshoot further? I suggested just trashing it, but owner says there are programs that only run on it (Vista?) & she doesn't have the disks to reinstall.
She does have a new Win 10 computer, I believe - could a VHD be created from this, allowing her to run it as a VM on her Win 10, if it supports Hyper V?

Trying to set up newer computer.  Have a HP compaq 6300pro (mini tower) that has a VGA and displayport++.  Used to have a lenovo computer that had a VGA and HDMI ports.  Need 2 monitors. The VGA is working fine, but can't seem to get the displayport to be recognized.  Running Win10 64bit. Had to purchase an adapter for the HDMI cable to go into the the display port.  I know a connection is happening somewhere - with the monitor powered on, no connecting cables I get the message CHECK SIGNAL CABLE. Then when I plug the adapter onto the cable, I get HDMI POWER SAVE MODE immediately  But I can't get the computer to recognize the monitor.  There is only 1 display adapter listed on the device manager (INTEL HD GRAPHICS). I don't see the displayport showing anywhere on the device manager.  But I can't find any drivers for this computer for Win10.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have a KVM with a VGA male. The computer has an HDMI 2.0b female input. I want/need to use the cable that came with the KVM switch. At the other end it is a VGA female to attach to a VGA male on a legacy computer. The converter must have VGA male on one side to connect to the cable and HDMI 2.0b male on the other side to connect to the computer. What do I get? I can't find the converter I am looking for on Google or Amazon.

I have a POS system that uses two monitors one for customer display and one for the employee display.  The customer display is a Dell 17 inch monitor using a display port.  The employee monitor is an Elio 17 in Touch Screen monitor using a VGA.  I am using a Dell Optiplex 3020 with Windows 7 Pro 32bit with an Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400.  

When starting the computer it is defaulting for the Dell (Customer) Monitor to be Monitor 1 and the Elo (Employee) Monitor to be Monitor 2.   The POS software automatically puts the Employee Screen onto "Monitor 1" and the Customer Screen onto "Monitor 2".   So I need to have the computer assign Monitor 1 to the Elo (VGA port)  and Monitor 2 to the Dell (Display port).
