Does the monitor work fine with other video outputs? Other computers, etc

Some suggestions:

  • Did you try pressing WinKey-P to cycle though the external monitor options?
  • If you right click on the desktop and choose Display Settings does it show 1 or 2 monitors?
  • Is the input selection on the monitor itself selected correctly (e.g. HDMI vs DVI vs VGA)?
