Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2500t Notebook ?

My Vista HPdv2500 doesn't have the option for a second monitor when I go into display settings in the control panel. This laptop is only 2 years old I can't believe it doesn't have a multi monitor function. When i press fn f4 the screen goes blank for a moment then returns to normal. I've tried this with an hdmi cable and an rgb cable. I recently reinstalled the hp vista with a dell vista because i'd lost my reinstall cd, could that have effected it? PLEASE HELP ME
