Hi bari39,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Connecting a working cable should allow your machine for an external display. One of the hotkeys that should toggle this is F10. 

 

Rebooting the machine may be able to reset the said function back to default as may be the case here. Here is the user guide and hardware manual for added future reference.

 

Good to know that everything works good now. 

Please don't hesitate to visit our Community at anytime.

 

Regards

I'm having the exact same issue and nothing seems to be fixing it. I'm also attempting to connect a second monitor via the USB-C port. My external monitors are LG 27MP33's. Both show they are not receiving a signal from my laptop. 

 

I've tried rebooting, updating my driver, etc. I know the monitors work becuase I can connect other devices to them via HDMI. 

 

Any suggestions would be helpful. 

 

Regards.
