Operating a Dell D630 (8 GB Memory, 1 TB hard drive) with Windows 7 Ultimate.
When undocked , the laptop screen functions normally.
When docked and using a VGA monitor, after Windows 7 logon, the monitor screen goes black (but active).
Same condition as above but boot in safe mode, and laptop & monitor functions normally.
Is this a windows problem or a docked Dell problem?
Is there a solution?
This started after I undocked a operating laptop and tried to connect to an external RGB (not through dock) at another site.
No signal recognized on RGB monitor.
After shutdown and return home, placed in dock, booted, and unable to see anything on home monitor.
Suggestions/solutions greatly appreciated.
If that was solely true, would not the docked laptop with monitor not work in "safe mode" when docked?
I can live without the external monitor circuit when not docked.
As for the undocked video monitor output, I'll see about getting Dell to check it out.
