    Problem with Intel HD Graphics and VGA output

    stephaneb

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to get the VGA output to an external monitor to work.

       

      I am connected to my monitor directly using a standard VGA cable.

      I am trying to enable primary display to the external monitor: I only get a black screen.  The monitor says it is not receiving a signal.

      When I try to clone or extend the display: same results.

       

      Here is my setup:

       

      Monitor: Iiyama ProLite E2710HDS

      Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64bit w/ Service Pack 1

      Laptop: Thinkpad T420

       

      Graphics Adapter Info:

      Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
