yes

If I choose generic monitor then the monitor wont display anything graphical. It just shows the text before the login screen.

However, if I plug in an external monitor and press the monitor switch FNC button then both screens show up, and the latop screen is small. The external montior screen is full size.

I suspect the wrong monitor is selected, but I have no idea which one to select. I am having difficulty locating the LCD model number, and I dont know if it will help even if I do. I also dont want to take the laptop apart.

(I could always put a different operating system on it if anyone can recommend one that will work with it, but it is alot of work [no cd drive] to do so I would like to be sure before I do that.)

If it's an nvidia card I know there's an extra setting for the xorg that enables the built in screen which for some reason gets turned off by normal settings...
