Hi

Have you install your graphic driver properly?

1. First you must check if your graphic driver to the latest update.
2. instead of using fn + f3 try using windows + P
3. check your vga cable if not broken try other vga cable or use hdmi cable.

SOURCE: connect broken laptop screen to external monitor

Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

Does Lenovo 3000 Y410 support dual monitors


Yes.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF.
Connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the back of the laptop.

The VGA port is on the right side, as you view the back of the laptop.
This is a basic example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port, (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

NOTE* Color does Not matter.

You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key.

No?
There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY

2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor

3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap again on the F3 key.

(The Fn key is down at the bottom LEFT corner of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is at the top of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key )

Need more information post in a Comment.

I tried to hook up an external "Sharp" monitor to my Lenovo G555 using a VGA chord. It did not show on the monitor. I went through the control panel and picked "Connect To a Projector"....


Do you still have your Lenovo G555 manual? "Try to read when connecting to the projector section"

I will give you some universal function keys to solve your problem

press and hold this:
Fn F3
Fn F4
Fn F5
Fn F6

do this one at a time

others does not function with Fn they use ctrl button. Try to press and hold ctrl with the button mention above with not pressing Fn

Hi all, when I press Fn+F3 then screen is sent to external projector, but my notebook's screen became black. What I should do?


The Fn+F3 key toggles between these display settings when you press these keys again.
To the external projector only.
To both the external projector and laptop screen
To the laptop screen only.
Repeat pressing the Fn+F3 keys will cycle through these screen settings again.

Wireless


Check to see if there is a wireless switch somewhere on the laptop.

Some use the FN key plus the F2 key, but many laptops have an actual switch that you have to turn on.

Also sometimes it's turned off in the bios, but not often.
