See if the desktop is active. Can you move the mouse cursor to the screen? You may have to try all directions. I'd try right first. Did you check display properties?

Connected by VGA When I start up Windows HP comes up on the monitor then disappears leaving it blank.In display I have tried to make the monitor the default but all I end up with is the mouse on the screen and no ikons and my laptop (Acer travelmate)wont do anything.
