    External Monitor For HP Laptop ?


    Hello,

    My Grandson has a 2 year old HP Laptop. Running W10.
    Not sure of model number, but of course can get in the future.

    With the at-home schooling now, thought it might be a good idea to get
    hime a "real" good size monitor for it.

    Should be better, I would imagine, than doing everything on the small screen.

    Question: Do most fairly recent HP laptops have a way of having the
    base unit "drive" an external monitor ?

    If so, can the unit's built in monitor be shut-off so as not to distract; only the new
    external larger monitor being active ?

    Any general thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    :)

    Laptop External Monitor Problem

    Thank you once again, I will explain:

    • Today 10th November 2016 - After monitor eventually successfully connects to my HP laptop, in my absence when the laptop/monitor powers off, I get NO re-connection problems during the day
    • Tomorrow 11th November 2016 - After laptop and monitor has been restarted following, shut-down, power offs(laptop + monitor) I will be stuck once again with exactly the same problem

    In my display settings each morning, my HP laptop shows it is connected to my external monitor, however there is no display on the external monitor for a vast amount of time, just randomly suddenly appears.?

  3. Laptop suddenly stopped recognizing the external monitor

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I would like to ask if the laptop is unable to recognize only the external monitor or other external devices also.

    I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter by following the steps below:

    • Click on the Start button, and type “Troubleshooting” on the search bar.
    • Click on “Hardware and Devices”.
    • A pop-up will appear, click on the “Next” button and your hardware troubleshooting will start.

    Hope the information is helpful. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Surface Laptop 3 with external monitor

    Hi All,

    Has anyone come across an issue with an external monitor blacking out while connected to a Surface Laptop 3? I have the laptop connected to a widescreen laptop with the Surface Dock. Both work fine however, once every hour or so the external monitor blacks out and comes back.

    I've completed the following:

    • Updated laptop drivers and firmware
      • Updated monitor drivers
      • Swapped out monitor
    [/LIST]
