Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Stand alone monitor won't come on after Vista automatic downloads

\015 I purchased a Dell laptop with Vista in Aug 2008. I use it with a stand alone monitor and keyboard. When Vista automatically downloads my monitor will not come on. The last time I was able to uninstall the last upload but can't remember how I did it. What can I do to stop this from happening?\015

Answers :

I'm just "guessing" here, but when the updates are installed, you may have to restart the computer. On a laptop, unless you go into the control panel and designate which monitors are installed, it reverts to the built-in monitor and you have to use the Fn and whichever function key controls the monitor assignment.
Yes, there should be a way to permanently tell the machine that the external monitor is the primary one. I think (since I don't run Vista here) that you would get into the control panel and the display settings and designate the attached monitor as the primary. I'd be interested to know if this works. Be sure when you go to the display properties that you right-click on the external monitor and choose "attached".
Anyway, give that a try.
