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.
Mike

Hello Gray:
Welcome to Apple discussions.
It appears from this knowledge base article, that you need a USB keyboard to use Bootcamp:

    Problem with two monitors while using Photoshop, windows move from 2nd screen to 1st screen.
    I saved a new workspace and it did not help.
    No problem before I went to Maverick.

    I found the fix, go to System Preferences and open Mission Control and uncheck the box to keep monitors as they were (When switching to an application...........)

  • Problems with USB device when using WindowsNT

    Hi,
    my problem is that I want to use a simulator which can only be connected with USB to the computer.
    I used the VISA Driver Development Wizard as discribed in this link (http://zone.ni.com/devzone/conceptd.nsf/webmain/6792BAB18242082786256DD7006B6416) and it didn't work.
    I'm using Windows NT and VISA 3.1 and I read that it isn't possible to create a USB connection with VISA when using Windows NT. So my questions
    1) is this right
    2) Has someone a idea what I can do? I tried to use VISA USB Control and this also didn't work.
    I hope I discribed my problem detailed enough. It's my first post.
    Thanks for your responses
    Joerg

    As you can see in this table, USB is not supported by VISA under NT:
    http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/websearch/EE34F21ECC2BE01286256C52005D1A1F?OpenDocument
    I would recommend to use Win2000 or XP. Using one of these OSes you could use this turorial  to create your VISA-driver:
    http://zone.ni.com/devzone/devzoneweb.nsf/Opendoc?openagent&1D0DD81FF1448CAE86256D90006EE2B4
    If it is not posssible to change the OS, you have to look for other ways of programming your usb-device. Check the web or the Microsoft site for help concerning Windows SDK and USB.
    Hope this helps a little!

  • Problems with External Monitor In XP

    Ok, I've got a huge problem with XP on Bootcamp.
    I've recently got a Samsung TV which I can use as an external monitor. This works absolutely fine when I'm using OSX, recognizes the TV and can use it as a second screen.
    When I try to use the same monitor in Windows under Bootcamp, it works as an extension of my desktop, but not able to mirror my desktop. I want to do this so I can play my games on a large screen instead of a small one.
    I've trawled the forums on this kind of problem and found a few answers. However, many of them talk about the ATI graphics drivers. I've downloaded the appropriate drivers and the control center from the website, but to no avail.
    People have also said about going into display properties: settings: advanced and selecting the ATI tab. I have no ATI tab.
    Also with the Catalyst Control Center, when I try to run it, it tells me that I dont have permission to change the settings and to contact my administrator, even though I am the administrator.
    Does anyone have any ideas how I can solve this?
    By the way. I'm connecting the external monitor via the DVI on my Macbook Pro to the HDMI connection on the TV.
    Many thanks
    Chris

    My logic tells me, if you are using a new MBP the way it's designed is that even if you are plugged in at times it will go in battery mode for a few minutes in order to prevent battery damage, than it will recharge. This happens in the background without notice. However, within this couple of minutes you might notice your display screen to sleep because it is setup to sleep in 1 minute or less in the preference under battery mode. So within that window you might have your screen go blank since the entire process takes a lot more than a minute. I hope this helps.

  • Problem with external monitor

    Hello all,
    did you ever use an external monitor with the mac book pro? Once disconnected the external monitor, the Mac freezes and becomes unresponsive. Do you know why?
    thank you very much
    Fulvio

    I have the same problem with my external Acer monitor, starting today. Suddenly, when connected to my MacBook, the Acer monitor says "Input Not Supported". If the Acer monitor is not connected, it says, correctly, "signal not detected".
    When the external monitor is connected, my MacBook can see it, has a display preference for it, lets me change resolution, etc, but the Acer monitor simply says "Input Not Supported". This just started today, and I did the system upgrade yesterday. Is there a connection?
    I've tried the usual fiddling with connections, rebooting, everything.

  • Inkscape/X11 Problems with external Monitor

    Hello,
    I´m using Inkscape to create vector art on my MacBook Pro.
    Since my update to Mavericks I´m having problems with X11. I have the version 2.7.5 of XQuartz installed currently.
    After some troubles, Inkscape opens up just fine.
    But I cannot drag Inkscape over to my external monitor, which is based to the right of my notebook.
    Inkscape simply disappears.
    I´m quite the DAU ;-) with Computers and Software, so it would be nice, if you can help me.
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    How about trying a native Mac app like iDraw http://www.indeeo.com/idraw/

  • Shutdown problems with external monitor

    Hello.
    I'm running Mavericks on my 2012 Macbook Air, running in clamshell mode with an Asus display connected from the Air's Thunderbolt port to the displays DVI port.
    My Macbook will not shutdown, unless I disconnect the external monitor.  This did not happen with previous OS versions.

    What adapter are you using to connect the MacBook miniDVI to the VGA input on the monitor? Is it the Apple adapter made specifically for the MacBook or possibly an older version? Double check that you have the correct adapter, just to rule that out as the potential culprit.
    Make sure you are using the recommended resolution and refresh rates for your monitor, from: http://www.viewsonic.com/pdf/userguides/va1903wb-2ugeng.pdf
    Resolution Recommended and supported
    1440 x 900 @ 60, 75 Hz (60 recommended)
    1280 x 1024 @ 60, 75 Hz
    1024 x 768 @ 60, 70, 72, 75 Hz
    800 x 600 @ 56, 60, 72, 75 Hz
    640 x 480 @ 60, 75 Hz
    720 x 400 @ 70 Hz
    other settings may show up in the Displays, System Preference, even though the monitor can't handle it. Try the different refresh rates to see if that makes any difference. When you have the Mac set up, then use the on-screen controls to auto adjust the monitor, I think this is the Auto Image or Auto set function.
    I use a Samsung 204B, 20" at 1600x1200, and sometimes I get some brief flickering when first waking from sleep, but it works fine other than that.

  • Problems with My Nano when using Accessories

    I bought my nano in November and haven't had any problem with it...until now. For x-mas I got an ITrip and a music station. My Nano doesn't like them. It worked once, and then stopped working. I took my nano to an Apple Store where they reset everything. It worked...for a day and now my nano won't play music through the ITrip or music station! Any ideas because I don't want to reset it and then re-load everything when I want to use my accessories. Thanks!

    Hello Ashers,
    Welcome to Apple Discussions.
    I don't want to reset it and then re-load everything when I want to use my accessories.
    Resetting will not delete songs/photos from your nano. Sometimes there's a glitch in the nano, where you would have to reset:

    The next time when you plug your nano to your iTrip and music station, you might want to try turning your nano on first. See if that helps.

  • Leopard 10.5.2 problems with external monitor

    Since I installed 10.5.2 on my macbook pro I cannot have a external monitor Dell 3007 WFP connected to my laptop when starting the computer. The screen will only show up on my laptop but only my background picture but nothing else so I have to perform each time a forced exit. However if I start my computer with my external computer unplugged the laptop works fine and if I then connect my Dell monitor everything works fine. However the closed lid mechanism is not working either anymore. My computer goes to sleep if you press an external keyboard the Dell screen comes on for few seconds but then goes to sleep again. I never had this problem with leopard 10.5.1. Does anyone known an answer to this problem.

    I have exactly the same problem. After 4 hours on the phone over 2 calls to Apple Care, they finally let me know that this is an issue with 10.5.2. They said they are working on a fix that would come out with a future update, and offered the workaround of reinstalling Leopard without 10.5.2 update.
    They sent me this link about reinstalling without losing files and settings:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8177.html
    It's very frustrating, and I hope they find a fix for it soon!

  • Problem with JMS migration when using Ctrl+C to stop the managed server in cluster

              Hi,
              I am having a clustered weblogic application running on Weblogic 7.0 SP5. My application
              uses JMS as a asynchrous communication. We have MDB which listens to these JMS
              messages.
              If something is being processed on Managed Server 1 and while the request is in
              process, i am stopping the the MAnaged SErver 1 using Ctrl+C.
              After this, i go to admin console and migrate teh JTA and JMS. After this, i am
              expecting other running Managed Server should restart the incomplete transaction.
              But this is not happening. The Managed Serve2 doesn't process the requst.
              But when i restart teh MAnaged SErver 1 again, it takes up the same request and
              processes it.
              Is this a known problem with Weblogic that it doesn't support Ctlr+C case?
              Please note that the same thing is working fine when i stop the server using Admin
              console(Normal shutdown OR forced shutdown).
              Any comments in this regards are apprecciated.
              Thanks,

  • PROBLEM WITH ALT-V WHEN USING CROATIAN KEYBOARD

    Hi,
    When Typing ALT GR+V (@ sign) in Croatian Keyboard, all the text from clipboard is copied into the text box (as it is pressed CTRL+V) plus the @sign.
    There were some bugs filed long back regarding a similar issue for the German keyboard where the customer was using the AltGr key for special characters, same as in our case.
    Below is the list of those bugs:
    (1)     Bug 757614: GERMAN USERS CANNOT USE ALT-GR KEY TO GET SPECIAL CHARACTERS
    (2)     666925
    (3)     767865
    (4)     768658
    I have gone through the descriptions and mail chains mentioned in these bugs, and it seems that the issue was fixed in OJDK.
    Please go through the above mentioned bugs once to get more details.
    It seems that this is not ORMS issue. It seems to be an Oracle Forms or OJDK issue.
    Can someone please advise on this as why is this happening. We are using Oracle Forms 10g.
    Thanks and Regards,
    Ashwini Swaroop Pradhan

    w/ all the keyboards and language settings.
    What do you mean by that? The problem being talked about here is an inability to make French accented characters on a German keyboard. What is your problem exactly?
    I've posted here because I guess it may be the same bug.
    After upgrading I wasn't able to do special characters, including some accented vocals, like "ì", very common in italian language.
    Then I've added an english keyboard, removed the italian one and added it again, so the problem with missing accented vocals was solved.
    I still have the same problem with special consonants, like "z" and "c": if I hold my thumb on such letters, I have no options like, say, "ż" (such characters are very important for my field (linguistics) and if Apple won't solve this problem I'll be forced to look elsewhere).

  • Ibook G4 having  problem with airport connection when using secure network

    Hi,
    I am currently using a brand new Macbook. I am connected wirelessly to a Comcast network through my Netgear Wireless-N 150 router model WNR 1000. The problem I am having is with the 4 year old ibook when I go to use the airport and connect to my existing network it says the password is incorrect. I spent time troubleshooting this with Netgear and basically we found out that the ibook does connect with the network when there is no security at all.
    I erased the hard drive on this ibook to prepare it for sale and it is back to the factory settings. Is there some kind of firmware or drivers I am missing to use the airport as described?? I want to be able to show the buyer that the internet works etc. I also may want to install a few things on the ibook before the sale.
    Thanks a mil

    Did you reset the wireless router to see if by default, it has a different
    wireless security then, than however it presently is set up?
    The question you pose appears to be marked "answered or solved."
    When you reinstall an OS X, the setup asks if you have an existing
    wireless connection, or if you will be getting a new one; by default,
    the setup will make the existing one the automatic one for OS X.
    You should not have to add passwords or other, unless there has
    been one set in KeyChain or for the specific wireless base in question.
    Tiger 10.4.x does not require you to have a set password for wi-fi,
    but you will find several levels of secure options available in OS X.
    Not sure why your setup and configuration is problematic. Usually,
    a totally new OS X installation is without issue. Sometimes, you
    may have to administer a base station via Ethernet cable before
    some configurations can use it, but an existing network should be
    easy, unless it already has a password security in place.
    The Mac will work without a password-protected wi-fi internet source;
    often it will 'just work' even when moved to a new environment and
    a neighbor's network, if not password protected, will appear among
    other options in your vicinity and it will be automatically available.
    Not sure if any newer OS X update parts, from the Combo update
    files to take Tiger 10.4 to 10.4.11, plus others, would help the Mac
    connect better to whatever wireless source of internet available.
    I've not had that issue, as you state, except for when someone has
    a protected network or passwords in place. Mine has passwords to
    keep unauthorized neighbors from easy access; just in case.
    In remote locations where few neighbors exist who could access wi-fi
    from a lone source, no wireless security settings at all, work just fine.
    I've done that; and found a little greater range was gained in signals.
    And in the city (largest town in state) a computer I'd set up for use in
    a password protected wi-fi network - later worked fine and found the
    new owner's own wi-fi network without issues; and I had let the OSX
    setup assistant do its job. If a local network is protected by WEP or
    WPA2, etc with a password, one would be needed to access it. If not,
    then the connection should be automatic.
    Good luck & happy computing!

  • I have been having problems with YouTube functionality when using Firefox, some of them having begun with the latest Firefox update

    After a fairly recent update, I began having the option to paste text disappear, I've had backspace cause the browser to go back to the previous page while in a text box, and other issues which are apparently a matter of Firefox not recognizing the fact that I am typing in a text box.
    After the last update, suddenly YouTube video page URL links no longer translate into links containing the title of the video, and also things like the use of bookend asterisks in order to have text appear in bold typeface no longer work.

    i have the same problem with the above..firefox is running too slow with the games in facebook..but it runs good when browsing my updates, msgs, photos...firefox is totally opposite of IE..IE is faster with the games and slow while browsing..i love to use mozila but when i do games it really pisses me off...hope you could help me..

  • Problem with path length when using oracle drive

    Hello!
    Does anybody else experience this problem with Oracle Drive?
    When I create a deep or nested hierarchy in which the path length is longer than 250 (the limit might be 255) characters, I cannot access the deeper subpages.
    Example:"X:\INET\START1\pfadlaengentest\das istein langer ordnername mit etwa 50 zeichen\and this is another veryveryvery long\and this is another veryveryvery lon2\and this is another veryveryvery lon3\and this is another veryveryvery lon4\and this is another veryveryvery lon5".
    I can access the page "and this is another veryveryvery lon4" but not "and this is another veryveryvery lon5"
    Is this problem due to WebDAV?
    What can I do - I think it is a critical error / bug?
    Regards Joerg.

    I opened a service request and oracle support could help me.
    The problem is the windows file system: the path length cannot be longer than 256 chars.
    There's a workaround with MS-Webfolders.
