laptop external monitor blank

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, I've recently come across a problem with the dual screen setup for my laptop. It previously worked fine.

One day the 2nd monitor (external) just stayed as a blank black screen. My laptop can still detect the monitor as well as native resolution etc. I have tried changing settings and using diff monitors. Any ideas? Could this be a physical problem such as my vga port being faulty?

I have the same problem... anybody got answers? I've been searching the net for answers since yesterday.. to no avail... I have this laptop and external lcd monitor for a year now and this is the first time this happened one day the external monitor just turned black.. but still windows can detect it... updated video drivers... uninstalled video drivers and installed again with new drivers.. still no display on the 2nd monitor.. i haven't tried to change the VGA connector yet maybe it's faulty but I don't think thats the problem.. I think windows just messed up the drivers...
