Hey, trying to determine what might be the cause of this issue: A Dell Laptop, it's monitor looks just fine. Plug in an external monitor and the external monitor has lines in it and the colors are not right. Tried a brand new monitor and cable, same result.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Given your laptops monitor is fine, it seems to me the output pins for your monitor could be broken
