I cannot drag window to external monitor

Please help, I cannot drag any programs etc to my external monitor.  The monitor is a TV, and connected via HDMI to MDP/thunderbolt on my Macbook Pro Retina 13inch.  I can drag the mouse, but not any programs to the TV display.  Please help

    MB Air 13", cannot move windows to secondary monitor. The pointer moves to the secondary monitor, but when I grab a window and move it, it stops at the screen border

    Comment from Berntfromhasselby:
    Thanks for the good advice, but it was too advanced for me; I do not know how to go to setup or startup. Then I thought I can search for it in "help", but I did not find anything about setup there. I only found something about safe start, where I had to switch off the computer and then press "shift" immediately after a sound during start. I tried that, but nothing special happened. So I thought I had to give up, and remembered once I asked a friend, who is computer specialist, why the help often is of no help. He said that it is obviously very difficult to help people by the help function.
    Then I set the computer to sleep. For some reason I started it again, and NOW it was quick! It was repaired!?! So the next question is:
    Do MacBook Airs also need to be switched off sometimes, so they do not become slow (when only using sleep)? Are they somewhat  similar to PCs which can become slow with time due to accumulation of some trash (and are difficult to make quick)?
    Then today I liked to listen to Mozart's beautiful 20th piano concerto on You tube, but now it had no sound?! I tried help again and found Sound, but the were no  loudspeakers available and everything there was grey, so I could not change anything..... Do I have to go to some service? I took my other MacBook Air (11") and listened to Mozart and noticed that I need to have two of the best and most expensive computers in the world to be sure to have one working....
    Then I remembered the most important PC-rule I learnt from my daughter's boyfriend: if you have some problem, restart! I did so and the sound was there again, probably it disappeared during the safe start procedure. "If anything can go wrong, it will." Ironically, I have been working as professor at a technical university, but in fiber optics, not with computers...
    I any case, it is good now, so the problem is solved. Thanks again!

  • Satellite Pro L550 - Cannot get 1920x1200 on external monitor

    Hi all,
    I cannot get nativ resolution (1920x1200) to my external monitor thrue HDMI conection.
    Catalyst or windows XP settings monitor gives max res. only 1920x1080 - Why?
    NB Satellite pro L550 (ATI 5165, hdmi ), LG L245WP (hdmi). Thanks for answer.

    > I finaly founded specification of Grf.card 5165 at ATI web.
    > Maximum output of HDMI is up to 1920x1080.
    HDMI output support all display resolutions up to 1920x1080
    >So toshiba thinks, that is possible to use analog (D-SUB) with 2048x1536 !!!!!!!!
    This chip support two integrated DVI display outputs 18-, 24-, and 30-bit digital displays at all resolutions up to 1920x1200 (single-link DVI) or 2560x1600 (dual-link DVI)
    VGA output supports analog displays connected by VGA at all resolutions up to 2048x1536
    Means that all these resolutions depend on the available display output!!!

  • Satellite U305: cannot watch videos on external monitor running Vista with Dynadock

    Hi Fellows,
    I have one Satellite U305 running Windows Vista, I bought also one Dynadock VGA with external HP 20" monitor.
    I have uppdated all Dynadock drives (Audio, Video, etc) to the latest version, but DVD Video or MPEG Video recorded with my camera is no possible to watch on extended monitor only in the primary monitor (notebook monitor).
    For exemple my Toshiba DVD Player works normally on Notebook monitor but when I transfer the window to extended monitor, Toshiba DVD Player stops to work.
    Video doesnt work on extended monitor.
    Is it correct or Do I made something wrong configuration? Is it a bug? If it is a bug, how to solve this bug?
    I am worry because I bough a big external monitor to watch some movies that I can not watch it.
    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    I am sorry that I have to tell you that mate, but it wont be possible to watch any kind of realtime content through your dynadock. It is not designed for that.
    The USB-Connection has not enough bandwidth to transfer this amount of data that is needed to have a "real" dvi / vga picture on our monitor. It is just made for Office use, e.g. E-Mail, Word etc.
    If you can, bring it back and look for another solution...

  • Satellite Pro L360-14E - Cannot play videos on external monitor

    Toshiba Satellite Pro L360-14E
    Video files as avi, flv, mp4 are played with SM-player etc. on the screen of the notebook, but not on the attached external monitor.
    In a log there is the error message: MPlayer crashed by bath usage OF CPU/FPU/RAM.
    What can mean that?

    Did you switch already to the external monitor using the FN+F5 buttons?
    Do this.
    Furthermore you have to switch firstly to external screen and then you have to start the windows media player or other video player.
    I would recommend using the VLC player. Its fro free and plays most files

  • T400 Windows 7 External Monitor issues

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this; however its worth a shot after trying for the past 48 hours to figure this out.
    I took the hard drive out of my wifes gateway laptop that had Windows 7 on it and put it in my T400.  After it booted up and all of the drivers got installed everything worked fine except the external monitor (It wont recognize it at all).  
    In the device manager I am getting a code 12 for the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family.  I have pretty much exausted all of the options I can think of and nothing seems to work.  Anyone have any ideas what this issue is or how I can resolve it to use an external monitor?  The device manager is also showing errors for PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communication Controller  (not sure if any of these are related to the issue)
    Again, sorry if this isn't the right place for this and thanks for any help!

    Hi mrosenello, welcome to the forum,
    my guess is that Windows installed generic drivers and not everything is 100% as it should be.  I'd like to suggest that you download, install and run ThinkVantage SystemUpdate which should hopefully then install all the correct drivers you need.
    Please give it a go and let us know how you get on.
    P.S. Moved to a better board

  • Yoga 2 Pro + Windows 10 = External Monitor not working via micro HDMI

    I upgraded to Windows 10 last week and everything was smooth.  Today when rebooting my system, the unit no longer can see my external display.  I have tried multiple other displays and none seem to work.  I have the latest video drivers for Win10 from the support site installed but it still doesn't work.  Any thoughts?

    I had issues with extreme sluggisness of my Yoga 2 Pro when I connected my external HDMI monitor after upgrading to win 10. I disabled DPTF in the BIOS and all the issues went away immediately. I have not tested yet what the impact on my battery life will be. Regardless, this is something Lenovo really needs to fix in the driver! If you don't know how to access the BIOS, here is a good link: http://www.howtogeek.com/126016/three-ways-to-access-the-windows-8-boot-options-menu/

  • Bootcamp, Windows 7, External Monitor Problem

    I am trying to hook my mac up to my 32" JVC monitor. It works perfect on the mac side, but when I turn it over to the windows 7 side there is an issue. If I do 'duplicate these displays', half of the bottom bar is cut off and about half an inch or so of space is cut from all edges. This is not an issue all the time, but it is annoying and it does get in the way on certain occasions. How would I fix this? I have tried the different resolutions, but to no avail, a lot of the space is still cut off. I have tried 'detect' and 'identify', but neither of those work. I've tried going into the nvidia panel, but there is no option to adjust the resolution manually to fit the screen.
    The problem isn't so much the resolution. The resolution is perfect and crystal clear! The real problem is that so much gets cut off the edges. Is there any way to manually adjust it to where it needs to be?

    Okay, well, I got it to work, but only in single mode (had to disable the actual mac screen).
    Is there a way to do this in duplicate/mirrored mode? I know on the mac side everything fits perfectly even in mirrored and everything.

  • Problem with external monitor when using Windows XP on MBP

    Hi All,
    I just got a 15.4" MBP, and put Windows XP Home on it using BootCamp. Anyway, the monitor sits above the MBP's screen, as shown below (set up this way through display props, not sure if it matters):
    [ ] External Monitor
    [ ] MBP Screen
    Anyway, some program windows won't drag to the external monitor (Dell 2007FP connected via DVI). An example is AIM. Any idea what it could be? The window shows for about 1/2" on the top monitor, and then it sticks, even though the cursor will continue to move upwards.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

  • Re: Satellite P750 with 2 external monitors

    I am just wondering if it is possible to have two "external" LCD monitors connected to my Toshiba Satellite P750?
    One on the VGA and the other one on the HDMI perhaps?

    My system is factory standard Windows 7 64-bit with no modifications of any kind. The system automatically detects the monitors.
    I can switch between displays using the Fn+F5 key or by using the right-click menu from the Windows dekstop (Graphics Options - Output to - Extended Desktop...) or by using the Intel graphics setup in 'Graphics Properties'.
    The VGA attached display shows up as 'Monitor' and the HDMI attached display shows as 'Digital Display'.
    So I can have any combination of two of the three displays: built-in display, VGA or HDMI. It would be nice if I could use all three at once but that seems to be a hardware limitation.
    I can set any display as tthe primary Windows monitor. In my case I have the setup 'Graphics Options - Output to - Extended Desktop - Digital Display + Monitor' which makes the HDMI display the primary. Using the 'Extended Desktop' configuration means that I can drag windows from one monitor to another as if they were one large monitor, but I can configure them separately and play full-screen games on just one monitor while the second monitor is used to display other information.
    I made sure of being able to use two external monitors before I bought this system. I discovered the benefits of dual external monitors many years ago and I would hate to go back to being restricted to just one.

  • I have a one year old Macbook Air 13.  I have a brand new 22" external monitor.  When I connect my  external monitor it initially provides a nice display - very accurate and  no distortions.  But, within a few minutes the screen begins a incessant series

    I have a one year old Macbook Air 13.  I have a brand new 22" external monitor.  In turning the Macbook and monitor on, the monitor displays very well, but within a few minutes it begins this incessant blinking (temporary black out of the screen that lasts anywhere from 1-5 seconds).  This has been going on for a long time (it also happended with my older monitor which apparantly I threw out when I should have kept it thinking it was the problem).  From reading various blogs in the Apple support community, this appears to be a widespread problem, but I don't find a solution, only a lot of speculation.  I'm very surprised the Apple folks haven't figured this out.   As a new Apple user, heretofor, I have been very impressed with the support and effort to get fixes out to users.  This, however, has me frustrated to the point of junking my Mac and going back to a PC.  I love the Macbook Air and most of the functionality, but I cannot function without an external monitor. Anybody have any ideas, please help.  Frustrated, Jim

    Your dsplay is getting extended onto the external monitor. Chcnage the setting to duplicate it or only display on the external monitor and you should be fine,
    Let me know if this worked for you.

  • Problems with an external monitor

    I have a laptop with intel 945 grafic card and I also use an external monitor (which has a nicer panel).
    However I experience some strange problems with my setup:
           I usually (when I am at home) start my laptop and close the laptop screen via
    xrandr --output LVDS --off
    But, after a random period of time (I have not found any good reason for it) my external monitor goes in some sort of power save mode (the screen goes black and remains that way).
    I usually activate the other screen (LVDS) and try to see if I can do anything.
    when I type:
    xrandr -q

    No matter what I do I cannot live reactivate the external monitor.
    (usually I try with the classic :
    xrandr --output VGA --auto
    Inittially I thought it is a problem with the driver (i810) so I upgraded yesterday the whole system.
    Even after I did that and used the new driver (intel) I still had much luck as I had an other blanking event today.
    An other ideea is that this is caused by faulty bios, but it is just a guess
    My present day solution: reboot (yes, full reboot, because restarting the xorg has not the intended effect)
    Any ideas on what may cause this?
    Any help would be appreaciated.

    display goes to sleep when colsed because there is a magnetic switch - small magnet opens the circuit.
    if it stays on, either magnet was misplaced, some wire disconnected or the issue is with the switch circuit.
    on some models switch is part of trackpad, if you have small magnet, try moving it over trackpad, see what it does.

  • U110 How to Retain External Monitor Resolution

    I'm trying to help someone with an IdeaPad U110 and an external monitor.  The Lenovo allows me to login with an external keyboard and monitor but as soon as it boots Windows, the external monitor goes dark and I have to choose FnF3 each time to re-enable the external monitor and then reset the resolution to 1680 X 1050.  Isn't there a way to get the Lenovo to retain these settings so I don't have to do this each time I boot it up?  THANKS!!

    Hi JLNH,
    Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
    Please try these steps.
    1 – Click the Start button.
    2 – Click Control Panel.
    3 – Click Appearance and Personalization.
    4 – Click Adjust screen resolution.
    Now once you have the resolution page
    1 Select your exrernal monitor
    2 Set the display type to duplicate
    3 Place a check
    Restart the computer and check if it remains on.
    Hope this helps

  • T61 external monitor permenantl​y in sleeping mode

    I want to run an external monitor with my T61 for desktop extention.  It was working fine, until I once booted up my PC before having switched on the external monitor.  Since that day I have never been able to display anything on the monitor.  It is just showing black, and the power button light is just flashing, which I assume means sleeping/power saving mode.
     I tried changing things on the BIOS, did not work. I even bought a minidocking station now, hoping that the new VGA-out would deliver results.  It also does not work.
    I cannot believe the Thinkpad cannot cope with an external monitor not being on when the Thinkpad starts up.  How can I fix this? 
    It does not seem to be the VGA port, since the docking station option also does not work, right?
    Please help.

    Go into your display property, by right clicking your desktop, then select your second monitor and then tick the extend desktop box.
