Ok. This is what I have. I have a Sony VIAO (no hard drive) and a Dell vPro. They both ran windows xp pro.
I want to put the Dell hard drive into the Sony. But when I do that, I get nothing.
So, I just kept my Dell hard drive in the Dell and plugged in my Sony monitor. But now I get NO INPUT on my monitor.
First is it possible to put the dell hard drive in my Sony?
What am I doing wrong?

The monitor driver is probably set for the original monitor. Restarting a couple times hasn't gotten it to recognize it as a default monitor?edit on 7-10-2012 by TheLieWeLive because: (no reason given)
