    Hey guys, we are not sure what happened but after we turned our lap top on this morning we noticed that it looks like it has been jumped up and down on as about 1/3 of the screen is all screwy looking. We can get it in for service next week but until then I wanted to connect it into my old monitor. I have the cable plugged in and I get an image when I go into the control panel and try to connect as if it were a second monitor but I cannot just get the image on the monitor as if it were a projector or something, I know it can be done, we used to do it at work with bum lap tops. FYI I am using Xp professional.

    See if your notebook has a CRt/LCD button on one of the Function keys (F7 or F8 typically).
