Boot to the BIOS and check to see if it is set to view both or just the LCD.

Don't most laptops have keys that you can press to toggle the display from

laptop display

both

external only.


On mine, it's the "Fn" key plus the "F4" key.

I believe you do this after it gets through the boot process.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
