How come I can only get the picture to show on my TV when I hook my laptop up to my TV?

by on April 27, 2009

Q: I have a laptop (hp pavillion dv6000), a monitor (hp2207h), and a 40 inch samsung television. Both monitor and television are hooked up and have a picture but my laptop is blank. I do not really need the screen but the extra room would be nice. I use ultra mon to configure all of these settings and what not. I am asking is there anyway I can use laptop screen as third monitor. Also on windows Vista.

  1.  

    Switch the screen image (fn+f4)

    Press fn+f4 to switch the screen image among display devices connected to the system. For example,
    if a monitor is connected to the computer, each time you press fn+f4 the image switches among the
    computer display, the monitor display, and a simultaneous display on both the computer and the
    monitor
