    Hey folks. I've read similiar postings, but this is slightly different. I've got a HP Compaz NX9010 laptop running Windows XP on a docking station with an HP external monitor hooked up. The external monitor works fine with or without the laptop closed, but the external will not run video streams or saved video files. Video will only run on the laptop screen. The only way I can get video to run is to use the <function> toggle keys and disable the laptop screen which has to be done each time the laptop is booted. Is there any way to fix the settings so that this does not have to be done each time I'm docked? Thanks for any assistance or ideas you might have.
