External Monitor not picking up laptop screen

I have a Fujitsu T Series Lifebook laptop/Tablet. I used to be able to hook up an external monitor through the monitor port. I joined this computer to a domain and now nothing comes up on the screen and no signal is detected. I get no response from the monitor key. Is there some setting somewhere that controls this? I unjoined the computer to the domain and it still doesn't work. Any idea?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Joining a domain has nothing to do with an external monitor working or not.  You should try the Fn F10 key combination that toggles the external monitor on or off: http://www.pc-ap.fujitsu.com/support/faq_lb/general/faq_displays.html
