Hi

Use the standard VGA cable from computer to the External monitor. after connecting click Fn+F4 keys once or twice. Also there is another method; you can reboot the computer while external monitor connected.

Good Luck

    I'm adding a monitor to my laptop. When I turn on the monitor I see my "background" and cursor but no desktop icons. I've tried all kinds of settings and can't fix.

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector

You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods.
1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor.
2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times.
Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :-
IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7
HP and Compaq = Fn + F4
Toshiba = Fn + F5
ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

How to connect external monitor in ibm type 2658


Most laptops have a blue external 15pin video connector. Connect an external monitor's video cable to this port, then power up the external monitor first then boot up the ThinkPad, the video information will automatically divert to the external monitor first.
You can toggle/cycle the laptop and external monitor so they display on both the laptop and external monitor or the laptop LCD screen or external monitor by pressing the blue Fn key and then the F7 key several times.
