    External screen display shows and then disappears

    I have been happily working for the last month or so with an external HP screen which is connected to my HP Elitebook 8560p. This all in the interests of my posture and my attempts to avoid the MyBB neanderthal look that comes from hunching over a tiny laptop screen (
