AcerAL1714 LCD Not Connecting With DELL Inspiron 15 Vista Laptop

I have DELL Inspiron 15 laptop with Vista Home Premium and I am trying to connect my Acer AL1714 LCD as secondary monitor to this laptop. Monitor is working fine with my desktop which is an XP. When I connect the display cable to laptop it does not work. Detailed steps:
1. Monitor's power on (monitor has an external power supply)
1.a. Green light on monitor comes on
1.b. Shows message "No Signal"
1.c. Message goes away and orange light comes up.
(Till now this is obvious behavior)
2. Connect display cable to laptop
2.a. Power adopter (on power cable) starts blinking its green light continuously
2.b. Monitor's light goes off (no orange or green)
2.c. Screen goes off - blank/black
2.d. Monitor does not respond to anything - neither on/off button nor dual display settings
2.e. Control Panel > Device Manager > Display shows two "Generic PnP Monitors" - obivously one is laptop and one the external connected LCD. Here it shows device is working fine.

3. Unplug display cable from laptop
3.a See 1.

Any idea, why monitor is not working with the laptop? I remember facing this kind of problem with my desktop once but I am unable to recall how it got fixed.

Thanks

Multiple vertical screens at startup (dell inspiron 4100)


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop (15 pin VGA connector). If the display appears normal on the external monitor then you have an issue with your laptop's LCD display. If the external monitor also has vertical screens then your video circuit on the laptop has a problem.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Try check your hard disk with the other machine. Try running hard disk diagnostic test. If there's a problem with diagnostic test i suspect your hard disk is faulty. If you tried connecting with other machine then same problem, suspected also hard disk faulty. You might need to change it.
