I had a similar problem with a Compaq laptop (Vista) , and I upgraded the RAM from 512mB to 2gB and the problem is fixed. Didn't cost much, and took about a minute to install (well, the tech guy did it, I watched).

If you have the right drivers set up for your video card, you should be able to to set up screen mirroring from your display settings. Right-click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution and make sure both screens are showing up. If they are, then under Multiple displays, select Duplicate these displays. That should get it working for you.

Wont show video

Sounds like you are missing the appropriate program to watch the video. Look at the extension of the video. There are many. Some open with Media Windows Player, Quicktime, or require special codex's. Here are a list of someone opinion of the best five video players. Click the name and see the extension each opens and if it will help you. I have used several of these. Get one as a backup to WMP. If so use the open with, to select the one you want to open a video with.

If this isn't your problem or doesn't help.......

Otherwise try this. Go to START, SETTING, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Under Tasks, open DEVICE MANAGER. Open the DISPLAY ADAPTERS section. Choose your graphics card, and right click your mouse for Properties. DISABLE the device.

Now restart your computer, it should find and reinstall the necessary drivers.

good luck
