Hello,
I hooked up my sister Samsung laptop (running windows 7) to her TV , after we were done we shut it down but i stupidly forgot to 'Deactivate' the second monitor in the display settings.

Now when the laptop is turned on after logging in the screen is black but i can still see and move the cursor.
I have tried to plug the VGA cable back into the laptop and monitor but it was still the same and i cant find any answers online.

Any one know of a way to sort this out?

Thanks

Hello,

Try this 1

Check if you are able to boot in "Safe Mode"

1) When you switch ON your laptop, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep

tapping the F8 key)

2) Select the option "Safe Mode".

Good Luck.
