  • laptop, how can i keep the vga port ALIVE

    so when i close my laptop, my vga port disables? is there a way to stop that?
    i have a inspiron b130 from dell pretty new lappy, i just want to use my lilliput while the laptop is closed.

    When you close the lid of your laptop, there must be a latch or a push button somewhere that gets pushed that initiates that. Find it and hack it off. The downside is your LCD screen is still gonna be on and consume power unnecessarily.

        You sure it's not suspending? Check the windows power settings to make sure it isn't set to 'Do this action on lid close' : Suspend

          there is an option in the software see pic. The vga should stay on - mine does when you close the lid.

              have you looked in the bios?

              If you press the switch displays button and turn the LCd off then it should work fine.
