External Monitor

How do you hookup an external monitor to a HP G62 Laptop.  When I plug in the monitor noting happens?  Does anyone have a suggestion?

Re: External Monitor

Hi,

 

Hold down the fn key and press f4.  You should see options relating to the display output appear.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Look on the top of the key board for a monitor symbol f4+FN. Toggle it.  (LCD, external, none, both)

 

 

You might want to install the monitor driver rather than use a generic driver.
