VGA port recognizes monitor but won't output anything
I am having another issue with my cyrix Mediagxm laptop. The issue is that in windows 98, the VGA port recognizes the VGA LCD monitor, but it doesn't output , I know on the laptop you have to press Fn + F4 , When I do that The screen blanks , and then it acts like it is outputting to the screen, but then quickly switches back to the internal screen. I have press the key combination multiple times and nothing. I am not totally sure what is wrong . Not sure if this will help but when I plug monitor into vga port, I reboot it , and the name of the LCD vga monitor, Replaces the internal monitor, Instead of listing the internal monitor and VGA monitor , in the device manager , it just shows the VGA monitor. Also when I go to the setting in windows 98 to change the resolution, it is saying the monitor only available is the external VGA , and not the internal monitor, when actually it is the internal monitor.
