Hi

I just bought few days before an LCD monitor acer G206HQL , i tried the first time to connect it into Sony Vaio notebook with vga cable (both of them). The monitor monitor wrrote "no signal" , i tried to fix the problem go to preferences, changing the resolution of the second screen, set the mode for external monitor, but nothing. 
The second time i tried to connect the notebook with HDMI and monitor with vga, but again nothing, the monitor wrote cable not connected. I went to the graphic card settings and it spotted the monitor, but it doesn't recognise it. It writes "uknown". Please can you help me fix this problem?

You can "ONLY" use one cable at a time to connect a monitor to a laptop. The suggested method is using an HDMI cable, just because it's simpler to use. Next thing to look at is if the laptop has the capabilities to use an external monitor; you'll need to check the laptop manual for that. If it does, then you need to check the default settings under playback devices. You can check this by right clicking the sound icon, then select playback devices....make sure you have the monitor connected when doing this...then you should see the external monitor.

As you can see, that is my Samsung TV when I connect my laptop to it to watch netflix movies.

Listen, most netbooks have a key combination that switches the screen to the external monitor, have you tried pressing it?

Yes i did it but nothing. The monitor tells me cable not connected, with hdmi (computer)  to vga (monitor) and with vga to vga the monitor writes "No signal". I have graphic card AMD Radeon HD 7650M.
