Re: windows 7 external display help?

This basically happens when your driver is outdated or your system is not able to detect the dual monitor support. When you connect the cable your screen flickers for some time. Then right click on desktop > properties > settings and from there you must be able to see the dual monitor. If that does not work then there will be issue with the cable or connection because your system is not able to find the connection. Try some display adapter.
