Good day, Cyko!
Here is what microsoft has to say about that:
In reading through this, you'll note that they suggest that some docking devices, or a usb adapter for monitors may allow you to run multiple monitors.

How to set up multiple external monitors on a laptop

Since you only have one external monitor port, you need to use a video spillter, this will allow you to connect two or more external monitors.

NOTE: This video splitter will only give you duplicated displays. Please check the link below:

You can set that from your laptop, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Go to settings tab and see if it detected 2 monitors. Click the selection which indicates dual monitor.

HP pavillion dv9005 no display - works fine on external monitor

If the notebook's video card (which may be on the motherboard) is successfully displaying images on an external monitor it sounds more like a problem with the notebook display or its connections. Probably the motherboard is OK.

Hp pavillion zd8000 monitor has 37 vertical lines

Interesting that you counted them!
If you haven't tried to reinstall the video drivers, do that.
If that doesn't work, hook up an external monitor to see if the display is OK on that.
If it is, then your LCD screen has a problem and will need to be replaced.

HP Pavillion dv8320us PC notebook display problem

Kathleen, I apologize for the inconvenience. As your external monitor is also not showing the display , the issue is not with any driver, it is the fault of the graphics card, unfortunately it cannot be removed from your Notebook, It has to be repaired from HP qualified technicians. If your notebook is under the warranty you can avail the mail in service without any cost. Or arrange a paid mail in service if it is out of warranty. You can simply go to and check the phone numbers of your local area to get the FEDEX box to your house for the mail in process.

Please feel free to contact for any queries.

Thank you & good bye.
