I'm on a Windows XP laptop and recently inherited a monitor. It unfortunately remains blank when attempting to extend. Things I've tried:
- Different resolution settings
- Checking the "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" box
- Using laptop (HP EliteBook 6930p) function keys (fn + F4)
I can't find anything wrong. The monitor should work ok as it was yesterday for the person I inherited it from. When checking the option to extend the laptop desktop, I am able to move my mouse beyond the right border. However, nothing shows on the monitor itself. I've checked to ensure the cable is secure. The monitor's power light is green.
Anything I forgot to check or other ideas? :-/
