    Hi, I have a new Dell Laptop and I am trying to extend screens to a dell monitor I have, I don’t know the model as I can’t get it to work, it has the Self Test Feature Check floating around the screen? I have connected the monitor using a VGA/HDMI cable and on my laptop it has found the monitor but the monitor still has that floating message, is there anyway to fix this? I’m working from home and need 2 screens to work.

    Thank you.

    You've tried both 'duplicate' and 'extend'?
