Windows 7 Not Seeing My External Monitor
Posted 25 July 2011 - 10:42 AM
I am using a laptop - it's an Inspiron 1520 with a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. My laptop monitor is working just fine, but the external monitor shows the error message: No Signal Input, Check Video Cable. I located the CD that came with my monitor and installed the driver, but now my laptop monitor is labeled as a Hannspree monitor, which is of course wrong.
So I need to know what to do to get Windows 7 to acknowledge the existence of my external monitor, and also how to change the name of the laptop monitor back to what it was before.
Anyone have any suggestions???? Please help!!

Also, if you uninstall the monitor (internal) in device manager, reboot, it should show up again. Make sure your external one is plugged in and on, so that'll still work while the internal one is temporairly disabled; it'll be redetected upon rebooting.
