I have this problem connecting my laptop to a second monitor.
I had a basic version of vista then upgraded to windows 7 ultimate
When i plug in the second monitor, i can get them to have twin monitors (having both screens the same) but when i click on extend, the laptop screen turns off and the second monitor just goes to the extended display.
i have tried all the settings on the mobility centre and still nothing.
My friend suggested something about an upgraded driver, but couldn't elaborate.
Laptop screen turns off and extra monitor just has extended display, how do i fix it?
here is what is on my screens, apart from the left screen (laptop monitor) does not show up.
i have control of the right screen but the laptop monitor switches itself off.
