I have an hp pavilion dv5-2045dx laptop that I am trying to hook up to a gateway monitor. My laptop screen is broken so I must use a monitor however, when I turn them both on the monitor light goes blue says no signal then turns orange. My VGA cord is working and fine I've cleaned my RAM and CMOS. I've tried doing all of the battery drain tricks and yet it still doesn't work.
