Samsung Q45 laptop screen blinks when used alone

My samsung Q45 laptop is connected to a second screen in my office for dualview work. Its ok.

But when I take it away, when i turn it on alone, it blinks : it seems that the graphic card still searches for a second screen, but i want it to work on its own screen...

Samsung's hotline is helpless...

please help me

    thank you but the toggle between screens is on the F4 key, I know that. While my Q45 is used alone, this key doesn't give a choice of screen. it does not solve the problem.

    Thanx anyway for your reply.

Hold down the Fn key and look at the F keys for a key that looks to have a monitor screen on it, when you find it just tap that key to switch between screens.

Good luck.

    The screen maybe on powersave, hold down the Fn key and individually tap each F key until you find the screen wake-up key.

    Good luck.

Latitude E4310, start up problem. power button blinks but screen does not come blinks and disappears.

First I'd try this... Remove the Battery and AC adapter, press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Connect the AC adapter alone and try and power on. I also recommend that you check for bent pins or broken plastics on the right USB ports on your laptop.

Screen doesnt come up when laptop is switched on...

If able to, connect a desktop monitor to the serial port on the laptop, reboot, and see if your screen shows on external monitor. If it doesn't then you have video issues
