Hello, I'm hoping  you can help me?

 

My laptop screen display will not work following connecting it to my TV. I can only see the screen if i connect it to the TV.

 

I've tried Fn + F8 but no joy.

tried accessing the display settings but i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.

 

any help gratefully received,,

kind regards

Heidi

Hi, Heidi:

You said you tried Fn-F8. This can be a bit tricky. Hold the Fn key, then press the F8 key and hold it momentarily. This key combination should toggle from dual screen to LCD to external and back to dual screen.
