There should be a Function Key that toggles the display output:

  • Mirrored
  • Extended/Spanned across both laptop & external monitor(s)
  • Only Laptop display
  • Only External Monitor

the Cable is either VGA (usually blue tip) DVI (white top) or HDMI. In Windows go to your mobility center or display settings to refresh to identify monitors.

Also there is a simpler way. Usually on most laptop, there is a function key (usually named FN) and when holding that, there is a monitor symbol on the F 1-12 buttons)
