This might sound like a dumb answer; but did you activate the external VGA output on the keyboard to send a signal to the external device. Don't have a 1018; but my 1010 uses the F1 key to send a signal to a external device.

The 1018 may be the same way. fdalbor

The external monitor displays the desktop, works normally,accept the monitor has a green tint to the display.I assume that the notebooks vga port is activated.Thanks for the help.

Mine works fine, but I believe you have a bent VGA pin in the VGA cable. Go to monoprice or somewhere like that and order a replacement and this should take care of it. You can borrow someone elses laptop if you like to test and be sure its the VGA cable.
