Hello!

 

i upgraded from Vista to Windows 10 and would like for my laptop and my external monitor to both be on and stay on MIRRORED

 

If I unplug my external monitor from the laptop and boot up then the Laptop screen works

If i plug in my external monitor in the serial VGA port where it goes then when I boot up the external monitor works BUT my laptop is BLACK?

 

I have done many Google searches but in my Windows 10 where you go to SETTINGS and DISPLAY there is no 1&2 screens or anything really for multiple monitors...just at the very bottom it says DETECT other monitors BUT it does nothing if clicked....

 

It may sound Odd but when the laptop still was VISTA driven they both worked mirrored when the external was connected....Never had to set anything, it just worked

 

I can't find ANY multiple monitor settings anyplace and it is frustrating because all the Google searches I have done said look here or there for where the settings are to enable or disable multiple monitors, as I say I have none of the setting areas mentioned?  Hope that isn't confusing to understand what i mean...

 

Can anybody tell me how to fix this?

 

THANKS!

 

Ron

Open CMD on your computer with admin privs and type this

 

sfc /scannnow

 

Then hit enter so it will run, lets check your system files.

 

Also have you updated the graphics drivers?
