Hi everyone,
My toshiba laptop have a screen that it isnt working anymore. When all this started i've tried to connect it in an external screen but it didn't work. After a year, i've plugged it in via an hdmi monitor and it magically worked, the signal magiccally appeared in my external screen once arrived at the windows login screen.

Yesterday i've putted it in sleep mode and since then, there's nothing shown in the external screen. I've restarted it tried everything, nothing comes up.

Do you guys have any solutions please?

Thanks

The external video ports are not normally active. You often need to press a PF key to turn them on . The exact key differs by manufacturer. I suggest you try F4 first.

Good Luck
