external monitor on alienware m17x
Posted on 2009-06-29
I have an Alienware m17x laptop running 64 bit Vista, and a Sony Bravia KDL-32M3000 LCD with both HDMI and VGA inputs. My previous laptop (running 32 bit Vista) only had a VGA connection, and using that, I could extend my desktop to the Sony as a second monitor. The m17x has both VGA and HDMI outputs, but I've tried both, and Windows actsl like it can't even see the monitor. I've checked the connections multiple times. Is there some other setting that has to be in place?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
