Monitor only work on lap top when a second monitor is hooked up

hp2000

For some reason my monitor has decided that you can only view it when a second monitor is hooked up.

 

When I turn on my laptop the hp logo loads then it will go to a black screen.  If I plug in a hdmi or vga monitor the display on my laptop starts to work.

Hi @palmer5shs,

 

Welcome to HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help.

 

I understand that the laptop screen does not work unless there is a second monitor connected.

 

Please go to the Display Properties, and set the Dispaly to single monitor, and show display only on1.

 

Let me know if it helps.
