Default Monitor Will Not Display


Wondering if anyone can help me here. I bought a Packard Bell Viseo 230WS monitor some time ago to connect to my Toshiba U400 laptop and until recently it's worked fine. Now though, the monitor displays a 'no signal' message when connected and I'm not sure why. My only hunch is that I've just noticed that the express card slot on the left hand side of my laptop is empty (even minus tray for loading the card), and I know that such a card is used to allow peripherals to be connected. However, I can never actually remember having the express card itself, only the empty tray until it fell out. Is this likely to be the issue? Do I need an express card? Or might it be something else?

Thanks a lot.

Fixed the 'problem' lol. Looking at 'Adjsut screen resolution' on my Control Panel I noticed that the box 'extend the desktop onto monitor' was unchecked. Simples
