My graphics card, NVIDIA GeForce 9400, cannot detect my external monitor. I have a laptop and I use an external monitor for when I'm home. Everything was working great, for almost a year, until yesterday.
My laptop lost power and shut off without warning, not even a warning that the battery was low. The external monitor was connected to the laptop when it shut off. I don't think that it is the monitor that is at fault.
I connect the external monitor to my laptop using a standard HDMI cable, and to my Xbox with a DVI to HDMI cable. I have interchanged them and tried to connect to my laptop with the DVI cable but no luck. I fear that it could be a fried port on my laptop? I hope not.
Correct. There is no option for multiple monitors even when the external one is connected.
Also I try to update my drivers, but when I get to the downloading screen for NVIDIA it says that these are not the correct drivers for my system. I even let NVIDIA scan my computer to see which to download but still no luck.
