Can't get pic back on my Lap top after using nvidia & ext monitor

Used Nvidia to utilize External Monitor, Now I can't get anything on my lap top screen, I'm SCREWED! It only has the option of the 2207 Hp monitor when you look for displays... Don't know what else to do. Originally it had the option of HP2207 + lap top display, clone, or one or the other, that's how I got it that way in the beginning! The fn F4 hot keys wouldn't work, that's why I went into the nvidia setting (with guidance from the Hp support people)... now they won't help me get it back, because I'm out of warrantee. If I can get it back I'll set it up to clone so I don't run into this problem again.

p.s. he had me download the most recent of all the drivers (I have the GeForce 7600 something Nvidia.

Did you use the combination keys of your laptop Fn and either F5, 6, or 7 depends on brand to select internal/external/both? You also need to make sure that the video resolution feeding the monitor is at native resolution setting.

Can't get picture back on lap top after connecting to ext monitor

Hello there. You sound very frustrated. try this, go into your BIOS settings and cycle the settings for your vga adapter, or even reseting the options to basic performance. also, you could hook up the external monitor and disable it while it's hooked up. that should fix any problems with that(if you still have an extra.)
