Hey all,



I just bought a new monitor, it's a 242H asus, and just got done installing it. I turned on my laptop and it worked.


However, I was wondering if there's a setting so that whenever I connect my laptop to the monitor, it will automatically turn off the display on the laptop and use the monitor instead.

Also, there is this one other thing. When my laptop is on battery, the monitor runs great. Then, I connected the power to my laptop, then the screen on my monitor flickers. Why is this? Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks!

Check the section of your manual dealing with the function keys. There might be some combonation you can press

Are all cables tight and secure?

I should've read the manual before asking here... lol Got the answer. :thumbsup:

The screen still has the flicker though. I googled it and there are a lot of issues with Dell laptops + various monitors. Mine is a HP laptop with an Asus monitor though... The cables are as tight as it can be.
