    I'm having a weird problem. My laptop will show a black screen when booting. It seems no matter how long I wait, nothing happens. When I attach an external LCD to the laptop, it shows the Windows load or Windows resume graphics on the external monitor, but not on my laptop screen. As soon as the Desktop Screen with the Windows Login appears, it then appears on my laptop as well.

    I also can't seem to get to safe mode. I push f8 and it never comes up I haven't installed any new software or hardware to cause this.


    Any thoughts?
