I have a laptop that 'lost' its lid some time ago. Now I am trying to get picture on external monitor. Laptop itself boots, I can hear Windows Vista chime. Regardless of what monitor or connection I use (VGA or HDMI) it won't show the picture when I press Fn + F7. I did find some posts talking about lid switch, but I don't know how or where to find it. If you have any ideas please let me know. This laptop might end up in parts soon :(
