There should be a shortcut by holding down the Fn Key and pressing F3,F5 or F8 I believe.
If you look on yur function keys it should show a picture of a monitor or two monitors with a slash between.
You mah have to press the key combination wait 5 seconds and do it again s it cycles between Internal monitor,Internal and external, External Only and off.
Hope this helps

In that case turn the machine on and tap the F8 till you can choose Safe Mode.
Then highlight Safe Mode with the cursors and hit enter to select.
Login then set your Graphics to default and reboot,Then set them back to the desired resolution.
Let me know if that works

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer, Ok we can take a look at this,
Ok, I was waiting to see if you had your XP Disk, but you went offline, I would suggest that you try a repair
We will see if it will repair, run the following, after finishing if you upgraded your Sp2, you will need to re-update.
Please do is the following: Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed. The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time. ***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss. Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens. When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.
Thanks for the Accept.
Lets try a test, do you have another monitor, What I want you to do is connect it to the back of your laptop, then reboot and shut your laptop lid, lets see if it works to the external monitor.
