I have a HP 8460p laptop connected to a docking station. When i hook up my Dell monitor(standard pin connection), the screens on both come up but blurry. Is there a way to blackout the laptop screen and use the monitor only?

If you are using Windows (7?), right click on the desktop and choose screen resolution. Then select the display you want to use.

Usually there is a way to do this with the laptop's keyboard.
You have to press the "Fn" key and then also another keyboard key like F4 or F8 (there should be a picture of a monitor-looking icon on the key) and it toggles each time you press the F key while holding down the "Fn" key.
