I've got one more for you, disconnect the U70 and keep only the other monitor connected.

Then run this the same way as I said above:

If you're lucky it'll change it's resolution to 1024x768 and work

I will give these a try when I get home. I haven't setup LAN access from machine to machine on my home PCs but I guess I can figure it out. I have a router, but never needed to share files between machines before. Can I just load the files on a USB flash drive? Will windows recognize it?

I landed on a good link for creating a bootable XP installation on a flash drive. I think it uses the same Multiboot app you mentioned. Here is the link: http://blog.800hightech.com/install-win ... -8gb/4886/

So maybe i won't have to resort to a complete re-install. Thanks for all the help. How do I send a PM?

Try it and let me know!
Yes you can do it with a USB stick, I guess it'll be labeled D: so you can do it that way, easier also...

To send a PM there is a little PM button just under this message (and every other), next to the date...

Well, I seem to keep digging my self in deeper and deeper. I attempted to run your scripts to change the resolution with no success. My ace in the hole has always been to reload XP, I built a USB stick using the following instructions:

http://blog.800hightech.com/install-win ... -8gb/4886/

When I booted the usb stick, i got video long enough to launch the install. Once it was launched, the screen went black. I saw activity on the HDD and the USB stick was lit and seemed to be active.

It was setup as an "unattended" install, so i figured everything was running OK. The fact that I had no display after the first screen was puzzling, but I figured it was running and didn't need my attention.

I went through several cycles where the HDD seemed to be active, and then after 20 minutes or so, the unit shut down. I started it up again and the cycle repeated. Now this has happened at least half a dozen times. I am hesitant to remove the USB stick because there were so many warnings not to do so.

I still have no display, and my patience is running thin. Any suggestions? I do have an external CD drive. Last time I attempted to use it for an XP install from the provided disk, it didn't recognize the disk and I got nowhere. I am running out of options. Any ideas?

It worked!

I have one question. When I install the Video drivers, should I install both the GMA500 video driver AND the Display Link driver? Or just the Display Link driver. I want to use my Fit-PC2 using only the Samsung U70 monitor via USB. And occasionally the DVI monitor. But I want to be able to use the U70 stand-alone. Also, the feedback I have read is that the IEG drivers are inferior to Display Link, so I was going to avoid them.

I now have XP and all the drivers (including Displaylink) installed. I can use the U70 as my primary display, and the DVI monitor in extend mode. But when I shut down, and disconnect the DVI monitor, and startup again, I get no display on the U70. I followed all the instructions you gave me. What am I doing wrong?

Quality isn't that good, I only had my cell phone available to record it, and I've disabled sound.
(My first youtube video by the way, lol)

Hmmm. Same monitor. Same Displaylink driver. Same settings. Same CPU. It looks in your video like you only have one USB connection to the monitor. Am I seeing it right? I have two. One for data, one for power.

I wondered also how you setup your main monitor. I installed XP, and all the drivers, including the GMA 500 driver, then the Displaylink driver. Is that what you did? I also notice you have XP setup without a user sign-in screen. Don't know if that makes a difference.

I guess if I can't resolve this I will have to call 1-800-SAMSUNG and get a tech on the line.

I see you have also experimented with other input devices. Like the Logitech Ninovo. I bought one too. And I tried out a thumbpad by a UK company called the Logic3. But the best thumbpad I tried is some freeware called BluCTRL. It lets you use your Blackberry keypad and trackball to control your PC. Pretty slick. And I have a battery pack from Tekken.

If I ever get this monitor working stand-alone I will have a nice mobile setup. And I can always use my Fit-PC2 as a hand warmer on cold winter days. :) Tom

Yes if you read the description next to the video, I use a 1 cable USB, I used both on fit-PC Slim but when I saw it can work with one, I switched to this cable and not waste 1 usb slot... I have an 8" Century LCD-8000U monitor with 800x600 max res which uses just 1 usb cable, so two forthe 7" U70 I thought was overkill...I haven't tried the 8" with any fit-PC, I used it for some other machine and it's great, I even think the fit-PC Slim mobo may fit behind it, inside the casing, but I'm not sure If I'll ever try that...I'm also thinking of making it a touch screen...I have a 7" touch module I wanted to use on the U70 but I had some problems with that so haven't done it, I'd like to solder it's input to the same usb port so I only have to run one cable, or maybe the 2cable one but not 2 different cables (one for U70 and one for touch on two ports).Maybe I'll try it someday, or someone else will ;)

I bought the DiNovo Mini for my fit-PC Slim and I know use it for this setup which is even better!It has a good battery which lasts for a few months on a charge and also uses 1 usb for mouse+keyboard. Downside is there's no Fkeys so to go into bios I have to use another keyboard...I wish they used "Del" like in fit-PC Slim...(irads can this be done? "Del" is better than "F2" IMHO)

That's exactly how I did the setup, at first I used only my main monitor over HDMI (no adapter needed since my main monitor has HDMI), I had the U70 just sitting there...I decided to use it after I saw the first post here concerning it, and I found out it works...The "no login sceen" doesn't seem to matter, I just like it that way cause I have a wireless network I want it to connect to and a downloader working at startup.
The program on the right is my s!mpL3 LAN Messenger (a simple msn like program I made for LAN).

I also warm my hands on it when it's cold :D
The Slim got warmer though :( ( :lol: )
