Most laptops have a function key that allows you to use special color coded operations. Usually these are in blue on the keyboard. Look for on that shows a picture of two monitors side by side. One will have a sun in it. Try pressing and holding the function key and then tapping this two monitor key. This option is suppose to allow you to activate a second monitor or a projector for presentations.
