Hi, I have a weird problem. I somehow disabled my laptop screen and cannot remember how I did it and now am unable to undo it. (I'm 90% sure its a setting I changed myself but I could be wrong) Basically when I turn on my computer the screen works perfect going through bios and windows 7 start-up. The problem is when the desktop loads the screen goes black. It is still on but the desktop wont display. The only way I can use the computer is to use an external monitor. I've tried all the fn+f# combos that are related to the display as well as all the various settings under "Screen Resolution" (Duplicate, only show on display 1, only show on display 2 & extend desktop.) When i change these settings the screen flashes but either goes completely dark(off) or returns to the "on" black. I also couldn't find the solution/setting in the NVidia Control Panel. Below are my system specs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
