Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Connecting lap tops to monitors...

\015 I have a Dell, the screen is completely cracked, i cant see anything on it. and i'm trying to hook it up to my monitor. i can see my background/wall paper on the monitor, but i cant see my icons. i can see the mouse run along the screen, but its like the monitors picture is too big (is that makes any since) last time i pushed like FN and F4 or something, and it worked, and everything fit the screen. its been months now and someone turned my computer off and the screen and i cant remember how to do it. everything ive tried hasnt worked. any more ideas?\015

Answers :

Try connecting a mouse and keyboard to the laptop and then start it with the top closed. Not sure if this will work on your model, but it works on a lot of laptops. This should force the PC to use your external monitor as the primary one.
