tonight I tried to give a presentation using my X40 with an external monitor, but there was no output! I could see my screen, but as soon as it was on dual/external only mode (after pressing fn + F5) the screen and the vga output was blanked! The cursor appeared, but there was nothing else. I’m guessing that the X config needs some tweaking, but a quick bout of google searching hasn’t brought anything interesting to light. Anyone know how I enable this?

The presentation seemed to go OK, though wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be, but obviously the lack of the slides wasn’t ideal.
