Using laptop with external monitor

  Mark5001 23:38 24 Dec 2010

My daughter has an Acer 6935G laptop. The screen has stopped working, so I have purchased an Acer external monitor for now. How do I switch off the internal screen? It seems to flicker between the two screens and requires a change of resolution on every startup. I know you can use Function F5 or F6 to do this but it does not seem to work. She is on Vista. Thanks.

Depends whether the fault is in the screen itself or the graphics processing chip. If the latter you won't get an external monitor to work either, as there is no output signal.


Merry Christmas anyway.
