Portege R600 - how to use the external monitor on the docking automatically

Hi - I just got a new Portege; R600-102. It's a great machine - very light and fast.

I connect to a Slim port replicator to the office and I wish I could anchor and automatically use the external monitor without opening the laptop. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do it? This process has worked well on my recently retired Dell X 300.

More precisely:
# I have the laptop closed Portégé and standby mode
# I anchor in the Slim Port Replicator (SPR)
# I press the button 'on' on the SPR
# I see the message "recovery windows" and the bars of the countdown on the external monitor. (So I know it's connected and you can see the external monitor)
# The laptop turns on but use the laptop screen (private) LCD
# I have to open it and manually tell it 'out to watch.
What can be automatically?

Thanks for the tips.

  • How to use two external monitors with my laptop?

    I have a new Pavilion dm4-301 d cl Entertainment PC.   My OS is Windows 7.   I'm used to using two external monitors with a docking station.   This new laptop lacks a docking station.  What should I do use two external monitors?

    Certainly not without a dock, but even with laptop HP well enough docks limit you to one of the ports on the external monitor, even if there are two on the dock. We used a device called an Atlona AT-HDPIX2 which is a USB to hdmi adapter. It provides a feature of third monitor for a laptop... use the native external port of the screen and the computer screen internal, then this device gives a third control that is fully configurable to display Windows 7 interface... clone, extend, etc.. It allows a full HD resolution and is pretty responsive for games even light.  HP does not have any true docking station for your laptop.

  • Portege R600-13Z - flickering picture on external monitor

    Hi support them!

    I own an ASUS VW224 VGA monitor and a Portege R600 13Z. Is the native resolution of 1680 x 1050 and directly on VGA cable (do not know if there is a docking station). GPU driver date is 31.03.2010 version (newest I think).

    The problem is that the screen is blinking. The darker the area displayed the strongest flicker is perceived. It's a "horizontal flicker", like the horizontal lines are pursuing each other up and down the screen. It is very annoying.

    Since the laptop screen itself or the monitor with another computer ASUS show any flickers, I think that the problem is rooted in the described configuration interaction. I can set different settings on the monitor itself. Related to the problem could be 50 and 54 of Phase clock.

    Windows tells me in config monitor refresh rate is 60. However, refresh rates and clock can be set to the same without change.

    The meaning of phase I don't know.
    Any ideas to solve the problem?

    See you soon!

    I think that it comes to the grounding of s.
    Please check if the flicker would be available using the battery power.

    I've been reading about such symptoms on external monitors.
    In most cases the use of the power supply cable 3 cord would solve this problem.

  • Portege R500-11Z: how to use the external mic and hear the internal speakers

    We have a Portege R500-11Z running XP and want to use Skype with an external table microphone and the internal speakers.

    When connect us the microphone to the Jack MIC the Portege, built-in speakers cut out!

    How to use an external mic and still hear the internal speakers?


    > When connect us the microphone on the Portege, built-in speaker MIC Jack cut!
    Are you sure you used the microphone port and no headphone port?

    Have you checked your settings Audio from Skype?
    There is an option called ring through the speaker too or something like that.

    Please also check the Realtek HD audio Manager in Control Panel.
    There is a tab called Audio i/o.

    Usually, you can change the connector settings, by clicking on the small key-tool icon.
    Disable the option called Mute rear output when plugged headphones before

    As you can see is called headset and not so I m confused a little bit why the speakers are turned off when you connect an external microphone.

    By the way; There is also a tab called micro.
    Check if the two options that reduce the echo and noise are OFF

  • I'm not clear how to use the recovery CD

    I added all the space using my HDD is it comes about 12 GB, I have 27.9 GB of disk space, but my drive has only 1.80 left disk space. I made clear to solve this problem. Basket is empty, I ran disk cleanup.

    A computer expert suggested that Windows might have become confused and cannot recognize what place I save, it might be because I ran a program called Cyberscrub often. His solution is to reload Windows XP home. My laptop came with recovery discs, everything else is already loaded. I have so much I don't want to lose on my laptop. If I use the recovery discs, I will lose everything on my computer, am I better off buying Windows XP home and re-load, in which case I will not lose my job?

    Also I am not clear how to use the recovery discs, I can't find instructions on what you are doing.
    The only person who could help me went to travel and not reachable.
    Any help greatly appreciated
    Lorraine Hart

    It of a very simple to recover the laptop.
    Just boot from the recovery CD and follow the instructions on-screen ;)

    I put t know what version recovery CD you have, but the older one provides the standard and expert mode. In expert mode, you can choose you partition where the OS is to be installed.
    So in this case only the selected partition will be formatted!

    But have you checked the size of the HARD disk in disk management?
    Simply click on the my icon my computer and choose manage.

    Of course, you could remove the internal HARD disk and it could connect to the external USB HDD controller. Then, connect the drive HARD to the second PC and you record data on another HARD drive.

  • How to get an external monitor like main screen...


    The monitor on my HP Pavilion dv9830us PC laptop has not worked for some time and I had to use an external CRT monitor for my screen. A few nights ago my operating system (Ubuntu Linux 10.04) failed to load and because I can not get flow to my external monitor until the video drivers on video Ubuntu loads, I am unable to run the repair of Ubuntu and the beginning of the start feature.

    Is it possible that I can get my laptop to use my external monitor at all times, even in the BIOS screen? Is there a setting in the BIOS for this?

    Thank you!

    Hi all...

    Nevermind, problem solved... Praise be to God!

    He made the screen on my laptop work long enough where I could press the needed button to get Ubuntu running and upward. This is literally the first time I saw him work in more than a year, no matter what I tried... seriously!

    Whatever your beliefs, (whose son is Jesus Christ) there is a God and he wonders!

    Thank you again...

    1. you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card?

    I suggest that you update the drivers for the graphics card and check if the computer continues to crash.

    a. Click Start, select run, type '% SystemRoot%\Minidump' (without the quotes) in the search box and press ENTER.

    b go to your desktop, right-click on it and create a new folder named "Dump".

    c. copy all the files in memory dump (it looks like Mini092003 - 01.DMP) in Minidump in this folder.
