Dual monitor set up

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

I am attempting to connect a second monitor to my Inspiron 1520 laptop. When I plug the monitor in nothing happens. The display settings says that there is one monitor, the default monitor. The properties doesn't come up, the 2nd monitor option with 1 & 2 boxes does not come up. The monitor says no signal. Is there something that I need to turn on? The instruction manual says that the monitor is set up for dual monitors so I know that it can.

Thank you!

First, does that monitor work with another computer?

If yes, there should be a hotkey to swap display to the monitor, Fn plus another F key usually.

If that does not work, go to the vendor's web site and update the video card drivers, try again.

Yes, it works with another computer. I will attempt that as well as update the drivers to see what happens.
Thank you for your quick response!
