Hello,
I am trying to connect my laptop to a monitor. The monitor worked fine with a pc when I last used it, a while ago. I have recently used the same laptop with another monitor, and that worked fine. But those two together... the best I managed was to get the monitor to show me the laptop's desktop for 2 seconds before going back to safe mode. Any idea what's going on??
Thanks in advance!

hi,

check the VGA cable, it might be loose.

press the Fn key and CRT/LCD key found in the F keys to switch the screen.
