I have a monitor connected to my laptop (running Windows XP) because the display is much better than the laptop's screen. It works just fine except for 2 things.

1) When I use the command prompt, and I go into full screen mode, the monitor turns off. The laptop screen displays properly.

2) When viewing video in Windows Media Player, the laptop screen works fine, but the monitor doesn't display the video. It still shows the menus, controls, playlist, etc., but there is a blank black box where the picture should be.

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?
