    Run the usual tests.

    Plug it in and run in terminal
    Code:
    lsusb
    and post the results.

    Also, unplug it, run in terminal
    Code:
    sudo dmesg -c
    and then plug it in again and run
    Code:
    dmesg
    and post the results.

    It is a laptop, yes? Does this mean that you have to press an Fn key to switch to the VGA port? What does the user manual say about using the VGA port?

    Are you using a proprietary video drvier? That should come with its own configuration settings manager. Does it give you an option to detect displays?

    Regards.

    Nice thought Graham. In laptops it is usually Fn+F1.
