Second monitor (hdmi) not being detected

Hi,

i have a notebook lenovo y570 that has a intel 3000 and a nvidia gt 555m video card. My external asus vg248 monitor used to work through hdmi, but now it doesnt. I tested it with another laptop and the monitor works through hdmi... i must have changed some setting in display.... The monitor says no hdmi signal.

I think something is wrong here (its says VGA, shouldnt it be hdmi?)

Have you tried the menu option on your monitor? Poke around in there and you will find an option "input select", then you should have options vga, DVI or HDMI?

Yep! if you have a DVI cable into your monitor and have VGA selected it will appear as not recognized?
