Default External Monitor.

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio connected up to an external monitor as the backlight on

the vaio had broken. The laptop works perfectly except when i try and watch

video footage. I can watch .mov etc on quicktime but cannot use media

player to watch anything. Which also means that the dvd software, i cant

use that to watch my dvds. All it shows is a purple screen yet when i place a

light up agaisnt the vaio monitor i can faintly see that the video is still

playing on the laptop screen but am not able to see it on the external

monitor. Help will be very much apprichiated over what i can do.

Thanks in advance

Ash Chapman

When you connect two monitors together you get a extended monitor. You have to randomly click on the vaio monitor to drag WMP to your external monitor.

Go into settings, and you can make it your primary moniter.
