Laptop monitor went black

Specs: Windows 7
Hi, My laptop monitor recently went black and it only starts to work when I connect another monitor to the laptop, when I do this, the other monitor doesn't work and my laptop's monitor starts to work again, can anyone help me with that?

... well we ca'nt guess what the laptop make is but a wild guess to the problem could be perhaps [press] the model specific Function <keys>

... <Fn> <key> + <another key> from top row of keyboard to toggle your screen on/off or toggle between your screen and plugged-in monitor.

... lets hope that's all it is!

I've tried that and nothing works.
This happened once but then I done a system restore and everything went fine, but now I've tried it and nothing works... Has this problem happened to anyone else?

Well... I resolved my problem in other way, I'v managed, while connected to the other monitor, to go to the BIOS and I forced the turn on of the display because this was in automatic and it worked. thanks guys for your enthusiasm in resolving my problem. I hope I don't need to come here again or it will be a bad thing for me

the same thing has been happening to me, I have a toshiba nb205 netbook about 1 1/2 years old I'm not sure about the other specs but when it goes black it will restart normally if I force it to shut down by holding the start button until it shuts off then restart. Also, I use a second monitor with it often via an rgb cord and when the screen goes black and I hit fn>f5 it toggles between the display on the laptop screen (in a smaller screen res) the same black on both screen and monitor.

Can you explain the bios...automatic thing for me?? Please and thank you.
