There is usually a way on laptops to change the video out source (on-laptop LCD, exteral vga etc) that is accesed by pressing the "Fn" and 5 key. note that both of these could be different depending on what laptop you have.

I have seen cases where people tap this un-aware and can't get video because it changed the source. give it a try, and let me know.
