    If youre using a laptop you may need to disable the laptops tft screen by going into the screen/video card settings and selecting external screen, that should sort it. If youre using a desktop theres no reason why it shouldnt be working

    Theres also a button on your laptop/keyboard (F7) which when pressed should switch between the laptop screen and the monitor might be an easier option m8 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
