Hello,

And that makes sense.... On most laptops, you can enable/disable a secondary monitor usually by the Fn key and F4, F8, etc. Honestly, that was going to be my next thing to do - Check to see if you enabled your "secondary monitor" via the keyboard. At least it's fixed now! Please mark your thread as solved using the thread tools at the top of the page, and give rep if applicable, thanks!

Cheers,

Josh

Marked as solved before i read this I'm learning and so grateful this community has people like you and eric. You are both angels. I learned a lot just from this and have made a secondary linux partition encase i mess this up so bad i can't fix it next time. that way i can back up things on my external and then just wipe/repair. Lets just hope my boobs don't decide to take up coding as a hobby D: Or else we are all doomed.

LOL... Enough with the boobs, ok? Not saying it in a mean way, but please remember that these ARE public forums
