Thanks, but I've tried that and I've tried changing the bios and neither one worked! I have an NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT graphics card, could there be a driver conflict or something.
Appreciate the info anyway!
So it appears that the situation might have gotten a bit more complicated, or I have another issue all together. Maybe some one can help me figure it out. Not only is my computer not showing a display when I have it unplugged and very once in a while my screen goes back for a few seconds or so (when plugged in) and I get a message that says video device driver stopped responding, but reconnected now (or something along those lines). This is becoming very frustrating, I would like to be able to take my laptop out and about to do my studying in quieter places, and not have to worry about allows having a plug in or the screen going blank. This is the reason I bought a laptop instead of a desktop. I have contacted NVIDIA regarding the blank screen on battery problem and they say it has nothing to do with the drivers, so what else could it be.
Please someone help me figure this out!
