I have a Dell laptop & have been trying to use it on a external monitor but its not working. It has worked in the past but now its saying cable not connected on the external screen. FN f8 isnt working for it anymore. Any ideas how to get it working again ?

What colour is the led on the monitor - red or amber
Have you checked the cable to another computer -
I do not think with that message cable not connected it will get you very far, but is there anything showing in device manager when the cable is connected
OR
Click "Control Panel" and select "Personalization."


Click "Display Options." Select "Identify Monitors" to locate the external monitor. Click the drop-down menu and choose the external monitor to switch the display.



Does any FN and F work for other functions
