My HP All In One computer monitor is not working. Problem with the video card, I think. I purchased a second monitor and connected it via htmi cable to the first. The second monitor works great. Is there a way to darken or turn off the display on the AIO monitor so that the only display is on the second connected monitor?

@PaulDTaylor -- try this:

  1. hold down the "Windows" key on your keyboard
  2. tap the "P" key
  3. release the Windows key

You should see a menu:

  • extend
  • duplicate
  • internal monitor only
  • external monitor only

OK?

Thanks, that worked.

@PaulDTaylor -- Great. You are very welcome.

 

Please click "this response was helpful", if that is true.

 

Also, click "Accept As Answer", to tell the volunteer contributors on this forum that you have received sufficient information from them, and that no more assistance is needed.

 

P.S. try this:

  1. within the "power" settings for your laptop, for the action "what happens when I close the lid", choose the "nothing" response.
  2. connect a USB keyboard and a USB mouse to your laptop.
  3. close the lid.
  4. Now, you can use the external keyboard & external mouse & external monitor -- just as if your system was a typical "desktop" with such external devices. The laptop can be moved "out of the way", to optimally position the monitor.

I hope this helps.
