Hello, In the past, I have seen a tool used to physically find a laptop connected to the wireless network that was not authorized to do so. Basically, some guy would wander around the office with this monitor, I'm guessing monitoring signal strength of some kind, until he walked up to the culprit and nailed him. I'm wondering where one could get that tool, if it's not hugely expensive. Or, perhaps there is some other home-built alternative. I haven't been able to get any useful information from google. The goal is to be able to find a individual unit that …

hi all, i am trying to connect an old apple monitor (this one: [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macintosh_Color_Display"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macintosh_Color_Display[/URL]) to my ph dv6000 laptop. i've got all the adaptors i need to make it work with a vga cable (14 pins, no 9th pin), but the colour is coming out all red tinted, and when i set desktop space to 'extend desktop', the picture on the mac monitor goes into an hour-glass shape (pinched in the middle). when i drag a window onto the mac monitor the whole picture gets really small and blotchy. i wasn't sure if maybe my graphics card isn't compatible with …

So I was happily playing Warhammer when the cat walked behind the monitor and *POOF!* no graphics signal. I waited for a while, and then hard-rebooted. Now I get a "Input signal out of range" error. I have:[LIST] [*]fiddled with/replaced the cables [*]swapped the monitor [*]tried to boot in safe mode (didn't work) [*]replaced graphics card [*]had the cat walk backwards behind the monitor [/LIST] Nothing's worked. So, do I get rid of the cat? Can you get my computer back for me? Thanks!

Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me. I have an older NEC Multisync LCD 1770nx monitor. I've had it for a while. Yesterday a friend was using my computer and now all of a sudden it's flickering. It's switching modes it seams, and the screen says "video input 1dvid no signal" then changes to "video 2 dsub". It's doing it anywhere from 3 times in a 10 minute span, to once an hour. It's extremely frustrating. I took a can of air to the outside vents of the monitor thinking it was getting hot, and did the same to the …

Hello everyone! I was hoping someone could offer a bit of insight into the problem I'm having.. My laptop monitor is doing the following (Youtube video): [URL="http://go.notebookreview.com/?id=525X832&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dix1BrzvPY9o"]http://go.notebookreview.com/?id=525X832&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dix1BrzvPY9o[/URL] When I hook up an external monitor it works fine. However, the symptoms don't seem to match anything I've read on LCD, backlight, or inverter problems. I've taken it apart and played with the cables and connections to no result.. Any ideas? Cheers, Lee

Is there a way to fake a dual monitor for testing. I have only one monitor and I have to make an application that is suitable for two monitors. The second monitor screen should appear as a window on my primairy monitor. I am currently working on a Windows XP machine.
