help with laptop to another screen

I've got a toshiba lap top computer running on Windows XP and am having trouble trying to connect the laptop to another moniter. it's connected with the cable and works fine when the laptop is first turned on, but then it goes blnk. (No PC activty)
Is there something i need to change on the laptop ?

Thanks

    Firstly, does your laptop have dual monitor support? Look under Control Panel-> Display-> Settings. You will see one or two monitors there.

    If that's ok, then try hitting the function key that has something like 'LCD/Screen' on it. (My Vaio here has it on F7, but other machines have it on other Function keys.)

    i'm conneting it to another monitor and and when the computer starts up, i've got it working on both screens (laptop and my bigger moniter) but then when i get to the log in page the big monitor goes blank with "no PC activty" across the middle of the screen.
