Can you fill your system specs so we can know where to start...

Depends on the laptop...

As a 'for instance'.. I have a thinkpad. And the external monitor is controlled by the presentation director software.
Plus you can switch modes using Fn+F7.

So to answer your question, you may find that answer in your laptops documentation.

Good luck!

Switching the Video Image

When you start the computer with an external device (such as an external monitor or projector) attached and turned on, the image may appear on either the computer display or the external device, depending on your settings.
Press <Fn><F8> to switch the video image between the display only, the external device only, or the display and the external device simultaneously.

It's a quirk.

Actually, I caught your post on the Sys Specs thread.

I have the problem that when i had windows vista (and xp for that matter) i simply plugged in my samsung syncmaster 172N (yes its old, i hope thats not the problem) and it automatically started up and connected, i recently upgraded to 7 and now whenever i plug in the monitor it just has the power light flashing, which it normally does when its plugged into a computer but there'e no power, any suggestions?
