I recently purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 19' widescreen monitor for my laptop to free up desk space. I took it out of the box 2 weeks ago, plugged it in and everything was great.

The other night I unplugged my laptop to use in it the other room and when I put it back and plugged it in the monitor wouldn't recognize it. I would search between digital and analog before going black and the power button blinking in one second intervals. I've tried restarting both the computer and monitor and reconnecting cables and nothing seems to work.

When I restart the laptop the windows login screen is diplayed on both the laptop and the monitor, but when windows starts to load the monitor goes blank with the blinking power button.

Someone please help!

Most Laptops have a control key sequence for the display selection.

Portable display on - External display off

Portable display off - External display on

Portable display on - External Display on

Try switching between the three choices and see what you get. ;)
