My new laptop works perfectly except for the screen. At boot, the contrast is almost grey. On certain colors/wavelengths(?), there seem to be tiny pixels gyrating, almost like snow on old-fashioned TVs, but much smaller. It's nonetheless distracting. What settings do I change? [more inside]
My computer is inside my apartment; my e-ink tablet is in the backyard; both are on the same wireless network. The tablet both (1) mirrors everything on the computer and (2) serves as a wireless keyboard and mouse, sending my touch commands to the computer. How close to this setup am I able to come right now?

Can I simply physically replace the 1366*768 LCD in my HP EliteBook 8440p with the 1600*900 part
and have the laptop autodetect the new screen and show the proper resolution? Or is there extra logic or connectors or dongles or whatever in the main body that must also be modified in order for the display to work, (or maybe it Just Won't Work)? Put simply, is HP 594090-001 plug-and-play? [more inside]
My work computer is a laptop running Windows 7. I am working far from my office this week (as I often do) and I connect to my work server through Remote Desktop Connection. Typically this is pretty much problem-free, but for the last two or three days, when I log in to the server, I am seeing the server's desktop not as a full screen, but in a window about 10" wide on my 17.3" laptop screen. As well, while the laptop's screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, the window looks to be 4:3. Attempting to resize the window through the Maximize/Restore Down icon avails me naught: I can mouse over the edges of the window and drag it to a new size, but it maxes out at the size that I mention, which covers maybe 60% of the screen's real estate. Numerous reboots and resets have not rectified it and I am at a loss as to how to proceed. [more inside]
Weird laptop computer behavior. Was it really User Account Controls? [more inside]
My laptop (Acer Aspire 3810T) fell about 2 feet onto a carpeted floor. It was closed, but now I have a black smudge on the bottom right corner of the screen (by the way, the smudge disappeared after a few minutes, but has now reappeared and is not going away). It is annoying but I can still work with it since it is not completely opaque.
After extensive googling and chatting with Acer support, I think the LCD may have ruptured. However, can I continue using the laptop or is the display going to get progressively worse and die soon? Although it is still within the warranty period, I think I may have to pay for repairs (since the techs may figure out that it was dropped). Thank you in advance.
I want to hook up two external monitors to my laptop and have them span / act as a typical dual monitor configuration. I just want the laptop to serve as a workstation. I don't need the laptop's display. If I could have all three work that would be great but only as a bonus. What is the easiest way to acheive this. Laptop will be running Windows 7 and have a vga port, a hdmi port, and 3 usb ports. Can I simply hook one monitor up via the VGA port, and then buy on of these usb / vga thingies
? I am not sure if Windows will be smart enough to span the display across the two monitors. Help me get two external monitors on my laptop.

My girlfriend has acquired a second-hand Sony Vaio PCG-C1VE laptop. The OS is Windows XP. Her problem is that she can't get the display out of 640x480. She's looking for display drivers, specifically video drivers and monitor drivers if such things exist - she can't find them anywhere.
Has anyone got any ideas?
