Don't waste anymore time until you try another VGA cable.

Exactly, cabling is the first thing to swap out (of course if monitor is hard cabled, grrrrrr I still have old CRT with that.)

Go as short as you need for a replacement for best signal, usually sold 3ft, 6ft, 10ft, 12ft, and too long....

I have tried 2 VGA cables so far, going to buy a DVI in a couple days, and give it a try too. I'm hoping for the best.

I bought a DVI cable, it working with that, so I guess the problem is with the VGA port itself on my notebook... :/
Thanks for the tips anyways guys!

Troubleshooting complete, almost, if you look really close to the 15 pin (likely blue connector, called DB15) on that notebook, are any of the holes filled? Or is it loose, at all?

Yes, that is not THAT unusual a failure point, especially if it's disconnected/reconnected a lot.
I am glad yours had another port, ours only has a DB15 for external.

90% of the time the problem is physical. Something to remember.
