Laptop - Docking Station - Monitor

Tony Cannizzo

Been using docking station for a years with my Dell laptop.
Just started using an external monitor.
Put it in suspend mode and disconnected from dock as per usual.

But now, the laptop monitor goes into some kind of power save mode. I say
that because it shows a very faint image, like 1%, almost completley dark.
Happens about 10 seconds after it starts displaying. Goes dark. However, the
external monitor works fine.

I have tried reinstalling video drivers, even deleted all the monitors from
Device Manager and added back, checked all the settings in Display
Properties, which are interesting too.

In Display Properties, the external monitor Identifies as #2 and the display
on the laptop Identifies as #2. In both cases, the check box to "Use as
Primary..." is grayed out - i.e., I can't unselect the external monitor and
I cannot select the laptop display.

If you are still reading at this point and have any suggestions, I would
REALLY appreciate it.

Thanks
Tony C
