I have just read someones post where people mention to connect a laptop to a monitor if the laptop has blackscrren and just wondered if you really can do this and if so how?

Your problem may not be laptop screen related,external monitor is only used when the laptop screen is completely dead.

By the way,please close this thread and stick to your original one.

most laptops have a VGA monitor connection (symbol of circle within a square)

Connec your monitor to this port.

then there is usually a key combination to swap from laptop screen to monitor i.e. Fn + F7

external screen can be used to connect to a large moitor / TV / projector for presentations.
