My HP ENVY dv6 won't detect or display anything with my second monitor.

I recently purchased a new monitor, but my envy will not detect it at all. I've checked multiple times. I'm using a VGA cable to connect the device. The monitor recognizes the cable is in and the connnection is secure, but it will display a "No Signal" and go into an immediate sleep mode after being booted up. I am able to move windows back and forth between the primary screen of the laptop (screen 1) and the secondary monitor I recently purchased (screen 2), but screen 2 does not display any of the windows.


Any help would be appreciated.
