Re: display in two monitors
It all depends on what you are trying to do.... Are you trying to view your lap top on a TV or are you trying to view two computer moniters at the same time. If trying to view on a TV hook up the S video cable to your tv, turn the tv to the correct input ie. SVIDEO 1 2 or 3 then right click on your desk top and click properties. Under the display properties click Settings tab then click advanced. In the radeon properties click displays and then click on the button for the Tv, then hit apply. it should adjust your resolution and send signal to your tv. If you are tying to do two computer moniters let me know and I will give you the process for that also.

Just connect the VGA 15 pin cable from the monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.
Turn on the monitor then the computer.
Hopefully Windows will find new hardware and ask you to run the multiple display wizard.
If the external display doesn't automatically turn on then you need to hit a keystroke combination. FN+ the key on the top row that has an icon that looks like a picture of a monitor. Usually an F key.
This keystroke combination switches between LCD, external Monitor and both.
When you get video on the external monitor, then you can get into the display control panel and change the resolutions and display modes to your liking!
Check if you are sending the signal to the external monitor. On my laptop with Windows 7, I can right click on an open section of the desktop and choose Graphics Properties. In this window, I can choose to send the display to the laptop's internal monitor, the external monitor or both. Pressing Crtl-Alt-F1 will force the video onto the external monitor on the fly (Crtl-Alt-F3 goes back to the laptop's screen).
When I have added a second monitor to a desktop, I needed to reboot and allow new hardware to be found before the related Screen Resolution (right click on the desktop again) let me find the second monitor and choose if this was a duplicate or extended screen.
1) Purchase a VGA cable (these can be purchased from any good PC shop)
2) Plug one end into the VGA connector on your laptop usually will have 15 pins sticking ut on the back of your laptop
3) Plug the other end into the Monitor
4) On your laptop press the fn key and F8 key (or the F key which has a picture of 2 monitors above it) - this will transfer the display from the laptop to the external monitor
5) enjoy :)

after u connect it to VGA u need to change the display signal interface to monitor from lcd, the option is available in display properties in Control panel
under Display prop, go to Settings/Advanced/Monitor or Adaptor depending on the choice.
there u will get LCD or Monitor or TV to chose.
the big ? is if you cant view anything on the LCD laptop how will u do it....?
check if u can view any bit of display in ur laptop like a filim negative....if it's totaly dark then u may visit a tech shop to replace the lcd screen
I've ran into similar problems with monitors before. Turns out that some monitors need their own driver installed in order to work with the video card, and, ?guess what?, they don't come with them. I usually find them at the manufacturer's site or driverguide.com Hope this helps, if not get back to me with the make and model and I'll do some research.
