    Default Changing primary laptop monitor to external monitor

    Hello,
    Due to extreme oafishness I have cracked the lcd screen on my laptop but I would be happy to use it with an external one.
    My laptop is an acer extensa 2300 and was wondering what is the way to do this. I plugged the external monitor into the plug at the back and the XP loading bar showed up nicely, but it then kicks back to the laptop screen.
    Thanks for your help.

    Check your laptop for a shortcut key to switch to your monitor.

    Otherwise you might need to look up the control panel on you laptops OS and twiddle with the display settings.
