    So you guys were right. I have to hit FN + F5 on my laptop. However the problem now is that I seem to have to do that everytime that I turn on the laptop? It doesnt automatically recognize it. I didn't have very much time to play around with the display settings but I thought it would work that once I switch to that display by using the fn + f5 then it would recognize it all the time instead of everytime I turn on the machine.

    Go into bios at boot and change the display output in there. jsut try pressing delete ot F1 at boot if you have no display in time then do the FN key thing and the bios should be up. There should be a default display option or init display first etc. You can always get windows to use the external monitor by setting it as the primary in display properties. That way the PC will boot but the display wont turn on untl windows gets to the logging on stage.
