G40, no external monitor screen display

I have connected an external LCD monitor (and tried a second) but the ext. monitor is unable to detect a signal.
Have tied the Presentation Director wizard and it can't see the LCD either.
It's possible that the ext. VGA port is damaged but unlikely.
Latest bios.
Anyone had similar problems?

Re: G40, no external monitor screen display

I know that I'm probably grasping at straws here, but have you checked your BIOS settings?
Cheers,

Yes - thanks.

Have changed/fiddled with BIOS settings to no avail.
I am beginning to think it is an electrical issue and will examine G40 m/b for dry joints etc.
