Screen monitor doesn't work, on projector works

  ktcimi 12:05 12 Apr 2018

Hi everyone, Today I connected my laptop with projector. A few minutes later the monitor went completely black, but on projector everything works fine. I tried to reset the laptop many times, but it's still the same. Computer works, just the monitor is all black, but I can see everything fine by projector. Thank you for any suggestions.

There is usually a function key that will also enable you to see the projected image on your laptop screen - something like Fn + F5. It depends upon the laptop.

You could also try

1) Right-click on the desktop, click on Properties and on the Display Settings choose monitor 1 as your primary display adapter.

2) Setup that external display (Projector) as a 2nd monitor.

3) Click on Apply and Ok.
