Question from Brenda M.: I took my laptop to the shop because the screen stopped lighting up. They checked it out and told me the screen was bad.
They said it would cost almost $200 to replace the screen. I told them I couldn’t afford that so they told me I could still use the laptop by hooking up an external monitor.
I bought a monitor a new monitor and hooked it up to the laptop with a VGA cable, but I can’t get the monitor to show anything besides a blank screen.
How can I get the external monitor to work this laptop?
It’s a Lenovo that has been upgraded to Windows 10 and the monitor is a Dell 23″ LED display.
